If anyone sees me with a World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Litch King box ...

November 11 2008

... would you please tell me to put it down and walk away. I can not let myself go back to WoW. Not buying the new expansion will be the final blow to my previous WoW addiction. As friends, co-workers, comrades in the fight, whatever .. please, help a guy out! :-)

So how many things out there get Google's attention when it comes to incompatibility? I have been told Google tells everyone else to fix their software. But look at the release notes for the Google Desktop 5.8: September 11, 2008 Google Desktop 5.8 (5.8.0809.08522) All Languages, Consumer edition only Memory and CPU usage optimizations Support for Windows XP SP3 Support for Firefox 3 Outlook indexing and performance improvements Gadget and sidebar UI improvements Improved shut-down speed Resolved many user reported proxy bugs Added a preference to display the deskbar on the left of the taskbar Compatibility fix for "World of Warcraft" issue I guess World of Warcraft is big enough for Google to take notice :-)

Lunaris calls it quits

May 20 2008

I found out yesterday that my World of Warcraft guild, Lunaris (Alliance) of Garona, has decided to call it quits. As a former active member, this makes me very sad. I joined Lunaris in January of 2005. WoW was launched in Nov of 2004 and most people got to level 60 around Christmas, 2004. Not my first guild, Lunaris was the guild I did my entire raid life in WoW. Since my decision to step back from an active raiding status last year, I have gotten my personal life back. Raiding in WoW, which is 50% of the end-game in the game and the entire story line post single-player questing, takes quite a bit of time. Lunaris raided 5 nights a week (typically Sunday thru Thursday) and from 7 PM to 11 PM Central time. Then, you need to factor in the time to do personal quests and equipment/consumable funding .. and you have a game that many people were playing 30+ hours a week. I had to give that up ... I was not playing any other games besides WoW! Congratulations to Lunaris for almost 4 years o
