Apr 28th 2010 9:00AM Recently, I mentioned to a non-WoW friend that I wanted more snorkeling XP before I considered spending all my gold on SCUBA gear. This statement, via IM, got me a response that went something like: "you're such a f*ing geek."
Then there's one of the massage therapists at the spa I goto. As soon as I told him I was a gamer, he asked what I played. Once I said WoW, he gave me his realm, level, race, and class. It was the most interesting massage ever. :)

And kudos to you to introducing him to what has turned out to be something he seems to enjoy as much as you do! Gotta love those parental bonding moments!

Ah, comfort and convenience!
Sep 11th 2009 8:51AM Users of systems other than Windows aren't offended that retailers push Windows. The offense is taken at the half-truths, failure to provide pertinent information, and blatant lies JUST to push Windows.
The other thing is, Vista hasn't been "fixed." They took XP's technology, improved on it, and then put the Vista "pretty" on top of it so people moving from Vista to 7 wouldn't freak out too much.
That being said, I've run WoW on XP, OSX, and on Ubuntu Linux. All three have their pros and cons, but I never had any issues that were based on the OS itself. Currently, my "main" gaming box runs XP and my "secondary" runs OSX. I don't "hate" on any OS. They all have their strong points & their weak points. It's a matter of personal preference.
Lastly, when it's time for me to get a new gaming machine, I'm not going to go to a "major retailer" where the employees have been instructed to try to sell me a particular machine or OS. I'll go to New Egg or MicroCenter (or other online or brick&mortar retailer that will sell me only what I want and not try to convince me THEY know better).

Aug 25th 2009 1:01PM ONLY 5 - 10 minutes? I sat in front of an instance the other day with some guildies, just banging our heads on the door trying to get in. We gave up after an hour.
