Filemaker's Bento goes 2.0 {}

Oct 14th 2008 9:31AM I'd like to try it out, I was quite impressed with Bento and found quite a few uses for it.

I am a bit disappointed that there is no option to "upgrade" your existing license particularly as Bento 2 is out inside of a year of their release of Bento.

A month later, it's still Mobile 'Meh' {}

Aug 13th 2008 4:09AM I have actually had a really positive experience with Mobile Me. It has worked absolutely fine - ok there is occasionally a slight delay in the syncing - but my life doesn't move so fast that 5 mins will cause a disruption.

All in all the 3G iPhone / MobileMe has been a really welcome inclusion in my day to day activities and has changed the way I interact with the Apple applications I use every day - from iCal to Mail.

Sorry to hear others have had so many continuing problems, but from me this service gets a thumbs up. As a dot.mac subscriber for a few years, I am very pleased with MobileMe and have no doubt I will be renewing my subscription when it comes around again next year.

Forum post of the day: Faith in healing {WoW}

Jul 6th 2008 3:57AM My main raid spec was as Holy for my guild, however I also built up a set of tanking gear as an offspec.

Previously the paladins in the guild performed extremely well in the earlier raid content - often topping the charts for healing output. Now however as we are in late SSC / TK and MH (also starting BT this week). I have noticed that there is a huge gulf between what the Holy paladins can produce in healing and what shaman, priests and especially resto druids can put out there. To the point where I am beginning to get concerned over the viability of taking too many Holy Paladins.

As such I have found myself wearing my tanking gear recently on our raids and speccing as protection instead.

I also used to be a healer in a number of arena teams, back in Season 1 and 2 - but gave that up as players learnt how to deal with paladin healers in arenas and the whole experience became more frustrating than fun.

I certainly feel that Protection is becoming the only viable raid spec for paladins these days as our limitations for raid healing are really starting to show in mid to late content. I'd like to see Blizz sort this out in WotLK, but really not holding my breath as a Prayer of Mending style ability (Prayer of mending Lite) is really not going to shake up paladin healing all that much.

Breakfast topic: Keeping track of WoW {WoW}

Jun 30th 2008 8:13AM A simple small notebook that I carry with me throughout the day. Sometimes I get an idea for something and I just quickly jot it down.

Although at this stage (late in the life of tBC) I have less need for it - it was invaluable in the early days - getting geared up for karazhan - listing what mats were needed for items to create and to level up my profession.

I have no doubt a new notebook will be bought over the summer to help me get my characters up to 80.

Adieu to double trapping {WoW}

Nov 15th 2007 5:49PM I'll miss it.

I'm one of those rare survival hunters and double trapping was my trademark.

I would go to instances and people would be amazed at the crowd control a survival hunter can bring.

Now, I guess my only option is to go back to BM or MM

shame really

Blizzard disbands extreme erotic roleplaying guild {WoW}

Sep 17th 2007 11:07AM Thats terrible. I really hate when people trump their "right" to anything in the face of someone else. Sure you have the right to have your fantasies - but don't bring it into an environment where kids are present.
You have the "right", but also a "duty" to society to exercise those rights responsilbly.

These are shock tactics from people who should really know better. Well done to Blizz for disbanding them - I hope they follow it up in any new incarnations these people create. A strong message that they should keep that sort of stuff to their websites/chat rooms and out of wow is needed. Hope I never cross paths with them on my wow server.

Breakfast Topic: What does that mean? {WoW}

Sep 8th 2007 9:20AM "QQ" ... I see it on the forums. Sometimes I even see "QQing" .. I think it refers to complaining but I just don't get the reference.

I play a level 70 paladin :)

WoW Rookie: An overview of professions {WoW}

Jul 14th 2007 7:50PM I was a miner/enchanter and yes it paid the bills, until I started raiding. Then the mining just wasn't paying and my new raiding habit meant I had to get mats for potions and elixirs each week - which meant buying them on the AH for crazy amounts of money. When I saw how much I was spending each week on herbs, and how little my mining mats were selling for - I knew it was time for a change.

I switched to herbalist and leveled to 375 in one weekend - not at all hard as herbalism is so easy to level up. Once I started gathering the herbs in Outland I was out of the red and back into the black as my expenses fell and I was gathering my own mats for those potions, and I found that my surplus mats each week were selling for a much tidier profit. Goodbye mining.

Herbalism is easier - quicker to collect - and sells very well in the AH. Along with the added bonus of actually being useful to my character.
