BigRedKitty: Worms {WoW}

Aug 28th 2008 10:30AM I had a Devilsaur pet for all of 5 minutes. It's like being followed around by a spastic bass drummer. He lasted from Un'goro to Silithus where I grabbed one of the starship troopersish centripars.

The stutter shot from the worms and chimeras is noticeably worse on any mob that paths around. Might take them 30 secs to actually engage while they find range.

Have prot warriors been left behind? {WoW}

Mar 13th 2008 5:48PM I know our healers prefer warrior tanks for the big bosses in 25 man content because the palis are too squishy.

I completely agree that bears make great offtanks and can passably dps compared to prot warriors and palis can do the same for healing. The prot warrior is a one trick pony good for tanking one near level mob at a time.

I'd never ask a prot warrior to SH if a pali is available. The pali transforms a 2 hr run into about 30-45 minutes.

That's why I'm working on my warrior debating between DW fury and MS with prot as a distant 3rd.

The Mac virus that isn't {}

Mar 10th 2008 1:41PM Makes me think of the old mitten-touch typing extension. It'd replace random characters when typing with one near on the keyboard.

I'm going to have to get a hold of this for April 1st.

To buy AppleCare or not? {}

Mar 6th 2008 11:28AM Also, if you're in IT, the Pro Care plan will save you a lot of time on repairs in store. Bumps you up in line for diagnosis and on the tech bench.

Use it on all the company's Macs you bring in for quicker turnaround.

Mar 6th 2008 11:15AM Applecare is frequently discounted by dealers and you can pick it up any time while your computer is under warranty. I buy it on all my laptops.

I'm trying to spec a new server for the office and thought about using a Mac Pro for it, but the desktop vs. server Applecare might be a deal-killer. Server support SLA is 4 hrs on-site while desktop is pretty much carry-in, best effort. That doesn't work well on a mission critical piece. So far my attempts to get the premium server support for the Mac Pro have been fruitless.

Mar 6th 2008 11:08AM Actually if you take it into a dealer, not an Apple store, sometime they can order the parts in and perform the repair at their shop.

It depends on the complexity of the repair, competency of the techs at the dealer, and whether Apple will allow them to do it there vs. ship.
