The Interwebs Dislike Me

So, there have been a series of events that have led to my conclusion that my internet is out to get me.

First, it was going randomly offline every few minutes, only staying up for less than a minute on average.

Second, once we got it working again, the antenna on the roof broke. No internet.

Third, when THAT was fixed, there were heaps of thunderstorms that somehow messed up my wireless internet.

So, now that there have been three, hopefully it will stay up.

Please?

Crappy Internets FTL

So, I felt I needed to give you all a semi-decent reason as to why it’s taking me so long to post. Ideally, I want to post each day. My crappy internet, however, simply LOL’d and said ‘not gonna happen!’

I’m currently testing a new wireless internet system that’s never been used in this area before. Basically, I get it for free, and I simply report every time it throws the towel in. Dumb thing does it every other day though, so I’m not too impressed with it.

But hey, free internet.

Day 02 – Why you decided to start a blog

I started this blog because I love reading WoW blogs in general.

Most people that write blogs don’t have to fake enthusiasm or knowledge to get their readers, they’re just themselves. If they’re pissed at someone, they’ll rant. If they’re happy about something, they’ll say so.

Because I like to read the achives first, I see how they started off: mostly just talking and ranting to themselves. Then, one day somebody comments on a post that struck a chord with them, and the author of the blog is all “ohmigosh the interwebs are reading this for reals?! squee”. And it’s all uphill from there.

I’ve played WoW for quite a while, and I’d consider myself a competant player and raider. So, I decided to play a character I’ve never seriously levelled before, and blog about her and her adventures. But I wanted a flexible name, in case I decided to use a druid, or a shaman, instead of a paladin, or in case I wanted to completely change my topic.

I know this is a day late, but because my wireless internet provider is awesome, I lost my connection for most of yesterday because the tower went down for unknown reasons.

Rise My Minion! Rise!

I’ve been having fun with the recent addition to the Death Knight’s spellbook – Raise Ally – or, as I have heard it called on Trade Chat “dkbrezomgwtfhuh”.

Why have I had so much fun? Besides the fact that I love my DK, I also love macros. Rez macros that bring about much laughing, rofling, crying (laughter or mental anguish), groaning, and/or head shaking.

Some fun ones I have seen are at http://forthebubbles.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/patch-exitement-omg-i-can-haz-brez/.

Although I haven’t yet seen many on the interwebs after much Googling of the subject, I predict that within a week we will have pages upon pages of glorious DK Brez macros on the WoW forums. Although some people will just take Druid Brez macros and claim they’re DK ones. Don’t do that. Be original. Like the internet.
