I write about dragons on the internet, Dad {WoW}

Feb 13th 2012 5:02PM Hilarious...I did LOL for real this time.

Sharing the same UI across all characters {WoW}

Dec 19th 2011 10:04PM I'm having a bit of trouble with the following:

I have a rather high-end gaming desktop that I use for raiding (large screen real estate, great graphics, etc). I ALSO have a new laptop (not a high end gaming laptop) that is used more for when I need to do some mindless things like dungeons, LFR, gathering while watching TV and hanging out with the lady.

My problem is that I cannot seem to get a UI set up that works well on BOTH my desktop and my laptop. The real estate is easily the biggest complaint since the screen sizes are clearly different. Any suggestions besides constantly readjusting sizes of bars, chat screens, unit frames, etc.? I feel like I am lost here but perhaps I just need a separate UI for both which would be confusing at the very least I think. Any help would be great!!

Voting for BlizzCon costume contest ends tomorrow! {WoW}

Nov 17th 2011 11:46PM I'm sorry but that chick with the Mylune dryad costume is...well...hot. Not to mention how much work she put into that I'm sure! She gets my vote as a red blooded american male, for sure. And yes, a little skin and some hard work is all it takes to get my approval.

The Queue: Law of Locks {WoW}

Aug 8th 2011 3:33PM In Stormwind's graveyard behind the cathedral, there is a rather large cylindrical building serving as a sort of mausoleum/shrine to someone among the alliance. Next to this particular building is Tiffin Wrynn's gravesite. Who resides in the coffin under that rather prominent building? There is a single guard and no plaque anywhere that I can see. I assumed perhaps it was a tribute to Arthas or Uther, but than I remember that Uther is buried in Western Plaguelands near Andorhal. Is it perhaps Bolvar? I suppose that would make the most sense. Thoughts?

Know Your Lore: Tauren origins and tinfoil hats {WoW}

Jun 29th 2011 3:51PM Clearly we have not seen the "construct" forms of the Tauren, but it took two expansions to see the dwarves, gnomes and humans rationalized...?

Know Your Lore: Tauren origins and tinfoil hats {WoW}

Jun 29th 2011 3:47PM Couldn't the "Earthmother" be Eonar of the Titans? It would make sense that the tales written by the tauren are talking about Eonar who knew of the whispers as the Old Gods. It would also explain how they suddenly appeared in history as a sentient being, much like the other races who were initially created by the Titans (humans, gnomes, dwarves).

Futhermore, the "pure" taurens could easily be the "construct" forms before the curse of the flesh took over? The "bad" tauren who succumbed to the whispers would be the present day tauren. They are not bad per se, but they are not "pure" as their progenitor brethren would be considered.

Know Your Lore: The mysterious connection between spirit healers and the Val'kyr {WoW}

Jun 25th 2011 12:16AM "However, spirit healers are apparently unable to leave the spirit plane, so whatever these exploits may be, they remain unobserved."

Koiter in Northern Barrens...just east of Crossroads...is a spirit healer who has crossed over to the material plane. I believe it's a tribute to a deceased developer or something along those lines.

Patch 4.2: Fandral's Flamescythe turns feral cats fiery {WoW}

Jun 9th 2011 3:17PM That's awesome! But it'd be really nice if they could put some of their design team towards updating the moonkin models...not finding new ways to upgrade the upgraded cat form already. A minor gripe for sure, but it is long overdue me thinks. All other forms have had some face lift or another (barring aquatic/travel forms).

The Queue: I'm up late tonight {WoW}

May 19th 2011 11:23AM The part that was left out about this feature is that you cannot use the model for a particular item until you have actually obtained said item.

That should alleviate your fears.

Breakfast Topic: Your very own NPC {WoW}

May 3rd 2011 7:21PM There's already one named after me in the Argent Tournament area. Squire Cavin, he gives the quest that lets you start the initial joust with the Black Knight. My last name is Cavin so I can only assume since it's not an amazingly common name that Blizzard randomly flipped through some lottery ball dispensing type machine and pulled out my last name...That's the story I'm sticking with anyways!
