Time Is Money: Hate mail from competitors {WoW}

May 8th 2010 2:30PM On my old realm there was an enchanter who had managed to corner a market just by coming up with a name for himself.

So eventually you'd start to see people in trade "cheaper than dynchants!"

Which didn't work well because he was unopposed for a couple of months. He had himself a brand and people were willing to pay more to have him do it, rather than take their chances with someone who might wander off with their mats.

Around Azeroth: All we want to do is eat your brains {WoW}

Apr 24th 2010 12:16PM We're not unreasonable, I mean, noone's gonna eat your eyes.

All we wanna do is eat your brains.

We're at an impasse here, maybe we can comprimise.

If you open up the door, we'll all come inside and eat your brains.

Blizzard donates $1.1 million to Make-A-Wish from Pandaren pet sales {WoW}

Feb 17th 2010 3:17PM Some points:

Most other companies that do something like this would normally to maybe 10 cents per item. 5 dollars is an extreme amount,

Yes, Blizzard has tons of money, but just giving it all away is bad for business, and the shareholders could sue for lack of due diligence. This is also why they had a press conference. Anything to enhance shareholder value. This donation is also in line with the size of donations from places like Macy's.

Blizzard is under no obligation to donate any portion of any sale to anyone. They offered this, and 220,000 took them up on it. I can't imagine that they would have gotten that level of sales without the donation flag raised.

Finally, Make-a-Wish got a nice check, and several of it's kids got to spend some time with developers of a game they enjoy (why else would they bring some of 'em). This point trumps all others.

It's about the kids. Period. If you can't grasp that, then you don't deserve to complain because you're too stuck up to ever make a donation of your own volition.

The Queue: Patience is a virtue {WoW}

Good ol' Warrior's Embrace.

Breakfast Topic: What are you doing to protect your account? {WoW}

Jan 16th 2010 8:48AM I don't have an authenticator because I've developed a dislike of RSA keyfobs over the years.

I also tend to lose things.

As for security, I use an email that has nothing else tied to it, a strong password, regularly scan my computer for malware, practice safe browsing, use ESET Smart Security Suite for my firewall and anti-virus, and even occasionally check my network connections for irregular data transmission.

It likely helps that I've spent years assisting people in removing malware from their computers on a volunteer basis online, so I have a good idea of what the likely vectors of infection are, what the signs of having been infected are, and what to do in case of malware.

Breakfast Topic: Celebrated Mechanics {WoW}

Dec 28th 2009 8:06AM Shield of the Righteous, to this day, makes me giggle.

For so long, warriors got to hit things with their shield, now we can too.
