Jun 17th 2008 1:57AM Hahaha love the dust. This house gets so dusty for some reason that I have to open my computer every 6-8 weeks and remove the bulidup from the fans and heatsinks.
Also, 22" wide is clearly for the win, but vista, wtf? And since when is anything with a 7800 a "beast?" My 8800 eats that shit for breakfast.

Apr 29th 2008 9:05AM Stop raiding, take the time you would have spent doing it working at the crappiest job you can find, and in a month or two you can buy a decent rig. Seriously, it's not worth it getting pissed off about low fps. If you love this game and you spend a lot of time in it, get the proper kit so you can play it properly.
I started playing WoW on a shitty computer that ran WoW at low settings and 15fps, and eventually upgraded to a rig than runs it at 60fps all the time with everything on "high" and 4x multisampling. Best money I ever spent. I still can't believe how awesome some older zones look when I revisit them and remember what they were like in the "bad ol' days".
Hardware is cheaper than it ever was, get with the program.
Apr 29th 2008 9:01AM There is such a mod -- it's called Skinner. You can set up viewports (eg. the area the 3d world appears in) and replace the one you have with a really, really tiny one.
This is a great trick to get your FPS up, try it.
Apr 26th 2008 4:58AM A few months ago I rerolled horde on a PVP server after spending over a year on a PVE realm. Did I get ganked leveling to 70? Oh, hell yes. Is it more difficult farming primals? Oh you bet. 95% of the time it's the same grind as on the PVE server.
But -- some of the other 5% have been the most memorable experiences I ever had playing WoW. It adds a whole other dimension to the game.
If you haven't already, try a PVP server. It will add spice and excitement to your WoW experience. And it's not like dying really costs you anything (like it does in EVE).
Apr 18th 2008 7:13PM Bah, Grid can do the same and displays a million times more information.
Grid > Decursive. Try it. It's a bit of a handful to configure, but once you have it set up the way you want it you'll never go back.
Mar 24th 2008 11:04AM I'm fairly hardcore about refusing boosts. I generally tell people flat out "sorry, I don't do boosts. Why don't you find some people your own level and run the instance properly? You'll learn a lot more".
Otherwise, you'll find these people in your heroic PUG 3 months later unable to do what they must.
Feb 17th 2008 8:48AM My WoW personality is somewhat schizophrenic. I have a pink hair female gnome I raid on, and an Undead Shadow Priest on a PVP server that's in a guild called .
Feb 4th 2008 8:02AM In the next episode: how to not go insane from level 10-13 when 2 mobs your own level kill you easily, but you don't have Fear yet. xD
Jan 29th 2008 8:52AM 1-15? Yawn. If you die to the other faction before you hit 20 and quest in contested zones, you are a retard.
Move along, nothing to see here.
