Mar 1st 2011 12:06PM Wouldn't it be fantastic that if you were one of the unlucky people (like me) that ran ZG over and over but never got the mounts you could still get the old mounts to drop?

They have a decent marker in terms of the Feat of Strength for Zandalar rep after all - make it a drop only for people with that achievement and keep the original drop rate. I'm sure I'll run the new 5-mans for the new mounts, but having a shot at the old mounts I put so much time into would be fantastic.

Given how simplistic yours sounds, they usually miss other methods like SSH tunneling and anonymizing proxies too, which at least once configured give you the option for uninterrupted browsing.

I've had some success just changing the IP address of the machine too - a lot of these things are only applied on specific IPs, leaving the staff/teacher machines to go their own way but are not segregated properly at the netwokring layer to prevent a simple change from circumventing the whole thing.

Major Caveat: in these ridiculous times you can get into major trouble for "hacking" even if you are doing something as simple as guessing at an unprotected path in a browser or guessing the admin password because they left it as the default (or set it to password etc.) - just because the "security" is dumb or essentially non-existent does not mean you won't get into trouble for circumventing it anyway. Common sense does not apply.

Mar 1st 2011 8:51AM +1 on this - it's nice to have a site more geared toward casual reading. The EJ threads are great but they can be a *lot* of work to understand, adopt into your playstyle and available time etc.

Mar 1st 2011 8:49AM @Nina - with how often they change the name of the site, it probably wouldn't stay blocked for long ;)

Mar 1st 2011 8:43AM I used to be a sys admin for AOL and I spotted the wowinsider URL (or something similar) in an Apache log I was looking at to troubleshoot an issue. Who needs Google eh?

"Windows has always been geared towards Power Users, Gamers and Business applications.

Apple has always been geared towards the every day users who don't have the know-how (or the will/want/laziness) to learn how to use the expensive productivity tool they bought"

That has to be the funniest, most misguided statement I have read on the internets in years - it must be an interesting planet you live on where Windows is the OS geared toward Power Users. Gamers - sure and (courtesy of MS Office and a handful of other apps), business users you can get away with, but power users? Not a chance - that group you will find using anything but windows.

Cryptic would 'love' to get Star Trek Online to consoles {Joystiq}

Feb 1st 2010 3:23PM It might help the overall stability of the game and to get it over the many, many driver issues that have plagued the beta.
