Cynwagon, I hope your pup is OK.

Hopefully medication can control the seizures. It can't be too hard to get a Mastiff to take meds in his food.... cause shoving a pill down a maw like that everyday could get dicey if he decided he didn't want it. :wink:

Hang in there.
No Witnesses.... :shifty:

Thanks BuzZz.

The vet doesn't think it's epilepsy, but hopefully just a one time freak thing.
Hyde is very good at taking pills luckily, just stick it in a hot dog or piece of cheese and he has no clue.

I going out to golf now, hitting things will probably make me feel a bit better... plus a few cocktails on the course never hurt. (this is why I choosing to golf with a DD over taking the bike out).

Got the word today, my baby is fixed. Apparently a coupling that connects the shaft to something decided to play grenade. Will pick her up after work on Thursday payday.....bye bye C$417 and change.

Cyn - Hopefully it is just a single case. I have a shepherd that had a single seizure years ago, no reoccurences.

ceemes - Happy fixed bike day to you.

Packie - That's a lot of alts. I wish I still had time to play. Not that the game is any good anymore what with patch 3.casual having come out. What's your favorite class?

Well there is one product out there that has a magnet covered in yellow fabric with something along the lines of "Hey, you're stupid, you almost killed a biker, this is a warning so hopefully you pay attention next time." except in nicer language on it.

As far as the collapsible batons, you can get them at surplus and police supply stores. 20-30 bucks for a decent one. Drunks tend to behave really quickly when a big guy with an angry look and a security shirt comes at them while swinging one of those... :twisted: :laughing:

Do you have any information about said magnety, clothy thing? It is very relevant to my interests.

I actually haven't played in 3 months. I renewed my account a few days ago to see what was up, and my stuff is so outdated. And since I'm not in a guild, I don't have the means to just jump in and start raiding. I'm not too happy with some of the changes. Actually, a lot of the changes.

Favorite: hm. I think Warlock and DK. I tried giving the warrior an honest chance, but I don't like 'em. Druid, ok so far. Priest - hated it. Paladin - ok. Rogue - still deciding. Shaman - hated. Hunter - fun so far. Mage - LOVE.

I'm a DPS personality. :-)

Shaman gets fun at around 60 or so, then you can go elemental and becoming a veritable wrecking ball. You're right about Wars, absolutely not fun at all. I also hate DKs, pallies and priest. I love locks, druids, hunters, rogues and shamans. My favorite is a TBC frost mage.

Back in TBC I spent most of my spare time on IQD making sure people couldn't get quests done and generally pushing the bounds of what was allowed in the game. I got that one banned a few months ago for "hindering" my own faction members. And I was just shy of 100k HKs. :(
Never got much into raiding. I was mostly just a fun of ad hoc world pvp, like the old days of SS/TM and then in TBC, IQD and wiping people on DLK and Doomwalker.

As far as raiding, it's np. You can just do the new 5-man heroic and get Ulduar quality purples.

This morning I woke up around 4:30am and couldn't get back to sleep. I finally gave up and got up around 6:00. I made some coffee and started checking things on the web. BBC, CNN and a couple other forums I visit then I looked at motorcycles on Craigslist. I found a 75' Ducati 860 GT for $600 that was posted last night at 9:28pm. I texted and called every half hour until he answered at 10:30am and the bike was gone. :(

About an hour later, as I was leaving to get some lunch, NKC Auto Trim called to let me know the KZ's seat was ready. I picked up the seat :D ,got the seat installed, then went to Italian Delite.

That is quite probably one of the most useful items I've seen in a long while. I'm getting like 100 of them and just keeping them in my tank bag.

Saw the preview for next WoW expansion. This might actually get me to start playing again.

Spent the day at home just relaxing (being lazy).

Damn, previews already? It's not even been a year yet. I'll probably wait a while even if it is good. Blizzard never prepares properly for launch/patch days.

yup. http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/cataclysm/

Flying in the old world. Yes, sir. The only thing I don't like about that is that the Explorer achievement is even more worthless. I spent well over 16 hours working on that (didn't have epic flying, though, for Northrend and Outland), and trotting around. Now it'll just be too easy. But as a chronic alt player, I think I can deal. :-)

I dread patch/expansion days - I tend to not play the day of and a day or two after because of the massive traffic and initial bugs. My computer runs like crap enough already. I don't need Blizz's problems, too. (Getting the war bear was awful. I was disconnected in TB a million times. TB!!!)


Did some shopping tonight. On the way home, saw a minivan whose passengers were reaching from within to hold on to a mattress sitting on top of the car.

There were no straps.

/sigh

I watched the video. It screams "Hi we're Blizzard, and we just don't care anymore. Give us your money." Only 5 more levels, no new zones (just rehash)? The two new races are basically just rehashes of existing mob models. No new classes. I can guarantee there's gonna be a lot of gear model recycling. Honestly it really seems like they just don't care anymore. Hopefully they'll prove me wrong.

I dunno, I'm kind of excited about it.

Look at the old posts in the forums:

- Why can't we fly in Azeroth?
- Heroics of old dungeons?
- Update the old zones, Blizz.
- Open up Grim Batol.
- Where's Deathwing?

Now it's:

- LOLORE.
- Flying in Azeroth isn't new content.
- Release new content, not update old stuff.

Seems like it's never enough for some people.
Give them what they want, and they'll ask why you didn't give them more.
As far as the levels go, it's probably a much bigger stretch from 80 to 85 than we would think.
I wish they would've added in a new class, but I can live with just a couple of new races. At least it will expand upon their stories, and I love stuff like that.
I'm glad that they're changing up things in the old world enough so that it's no longer just a place to go to for auction house crap and training alts.
The lore does seem off in the storyline, but it's THEIR story - they can direct it wherever they please.
Another thing that I personally like is that the original Azeroth will be gone. New players will never be able to experience the same WoW that we had, and that's kind of cool to me. It shows a real progression of the game, rather than just slapping on a new continent or world every few years, while everything else stays the same.

Maybe you're right - maybe it'll totally suck.
But I'm not going to make a judgment like that until it comes out and I have the chance to play it.

Besides, Blizzard's success is measured by one thing: our wallets. If they keep getting our money month after month, they've succeeded. And while neither of us play month after month consecutively or religiously, there are plenty of people that do.
