I’m old school, MacGuyver, baby.
I just realized that between all the things in my life, the thing that is most under attack, and at the same time, the most secure, is my World of Warcraft account.
My email account? Meh. Bank account? Too much heat. My WoW account? Probably 100 injection attacks a day trying to get that password. (Which is why I have an authenticator.)
Steve Jobs is going to take some scalps over this leak: Tablets to be announced later this month:
Looking to build on the momentum of its iPhone and iPod, Apple Inc. will unveil a new multimedia tablet device later this month, but isn’t planning to ship the product until March, say people briefed by the company.
This is the part that got my attention:
With the new device, Apple wants to change the way consumers interact with a variety of content, these people said. Textbooks and newspapers, for example, could be presented differently through color screens, a touch interface, and the integration of live up-to-the-minute information from multiple sources.
Could it mean… dare I say? The return of Hypercard?
I’ve actually been surprised to find out how few warcraft players read WoW blogs. It’s strange to me. I’m also finding out that maybe I really am better informed that most priests. So I decided to test that with a list of a Few Things That You Might Not Know About Priests. I’m finding out that these things aren’t as common as I thought, and that there are a lot more priests healing than before now that the new Looking for Dungeon tool has shown them clearly that a 20 minute wait for a group turns to two minutes when you check that “healer” box. (If you don’t play, then this is going to all be gibberish.) Continue reading ‘Warcraft Geeking: Priest Tips’ »
I’ve been watching Cowboy Bebop on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, and tonight is the night for The Real Folk Blues Part 2. I’m dreading it. I’ve seen the Bebop series three times already, but this fourth time is my first one in English. I watched it in English once midway through my first viewing, and I hated it. I’m still not fond of it. I think that the English voice actors are good, but they don’t fit the characters.
I’m already avoiding the subject. The Real Folk Blues. I’m going to cry. Again. I know it, and I am going to watch anyways. I picked up this time at Toys in the Attic and I feel like I owe it to Spike and Faye to watch. The thing that worries me is that Trigun comes on right before, and it seems like it is winding down. If it ends tonight too, and Vash the Stampede doesn’t make it, I’m going to be a blubbering sobbing mess before The Real Folk Blues ends. I don’t know what is going to happen in Trigun because this is my first trip all the way through, but it has been taking a really melancholy turn lately.
That means that this is the last episode of Trigun. I’m not reading the episode guide, because I don’t want spoilers. I just hope that it is a happy ending. You can’t show two sad endings in one night. Are you listening, Adult Swim? That’s like serving all the curry at once in a restaurant with one bathroom. You just can’t do that and have things not get ugly.
Trigun comes on at midnight Central. Cowboy Bebop comes on at 12:30 Central. Joe Bob says check them out. Tomorrow morning is going to be hard.
