I guess we can be happy that they still let us use an alias and not our real name and photograph.

Would anyone know where to actually download Mavericks? We got to upgrade a wee bit over 100 macbooks and having all of them go to the mac app store and have each download a copy of mavericks is just not feasible.

Last time we went from 10.7 to 10.7.5 we were able to get the 2 Gb+ file in pendrives and use that to speed up the process... but for the life of me, i cannot find the 10.9 download.

On one computer download it via the Mac App Store but don't install it, if it is already installed you can choose to download it again, since installing it causes it to delete the main installer, then follow the directions here: http://osxdaily.com/2013/10/23/create-o ... all-drive/

Thanks. I had already downloaded another copy of Mavericks, but I was just hoping to drop it on an external hard drive or big usb rather than having to commit that USB to make it bootable.

Well you can copy the main installer to a USB drive and do it that way.

Alt/Option drag it to the drive? I know for certain it can be copied within the same disk as I did that.

have a friend who's guild treated her like shit, and it finally came to a head and her guild and she parted ways
i asked an officer in our guild if she could join and just stay a low rank with no bank access which wasnt a problem

NOW i am getting treated like crap because the "officers" were discussing if they were going to invite her and it is "problematic" that she is in the guild now

JFC!
1) i have gone through a guild implosion before, and was just trying to be a good friend and showing this friend that she does have people that care.
2) if the "officers" are discussing something, TELL ALL THE FUCKING OFFICERS!
3) wtf is the issue of having a low rank person with no bank access? i wasnt trying to get her to be a raider right away with full guild bank access and guild repairs

this stupid ass shit pisses me off

I'm having suicidal thoughts at the moment.Because of what happened in the past 2 weeks,including a girl I talked about in my previous post.

She came back playing WoW during summer and randomly started talking with me and the melee officer she has known for years.
The melee officer is a selfcentered emo veryrich greek dude.
The girl is a very cute norwegian,with lots of issues.

The girl already had a boyfriend of 2.5 years by the time this started out,but the relationship wasnt going very well and still isn't to this day,however a lot of paranoia is included on the girls part and she sees things where there are none.

So the greek richdude tried getting things on with her,and stuff went okay for a while until she realized it won't work,because the dude is a selfcentered emo infantile kid basically.

By the time,her and me were talking a lot,hours upon hours every day,for weeks.She is very emotional when she loses a friend and even more so when loses a "crush".So I helped her through this stage.
After all settled,things got fucked up.

She started to have a crush on me,because of all the talking we've been doing.We could talk about anything and it surfaced that our interests are pretty much the same on a lot of things.

You have to realize,I only felt anything for one other girl in my whole life.I resist most.She was spot on,from the get go,but I kept my resist up so it wouldn't get in the way.
Until she had a crush and started to hate that I cant let go of my resistance fully.Even tho it felt wrong ,I did let go of it eventually.It was nice.We planned out a lot of things,still talked 8 hours a day,wasnt just uncontrolled retared e-shit.We were supposed to meet,we talked ,we sent a shitload of pictures (nothing nasty).

But then,something happened,and one day she just told me her bf almost noticed and we need to cut it and can we be just friends again instead,and that she will see it through what happens in her relationship ,it's only fair like this and I'll be the first to know if she is single.

So I tried,I was hurt,she was hurt.
In the background ,the richdude kept doing desparate idiotic whining every day to her,driving her insane.She told me about every single occasion until yesterday and recently the greek dude took to whine to me too about her.

I just ,it was too much, so I told the greek dude,THIS IS WHAT SHE THINKS OF YOU,JUST STOP SPAMMING HER WITH YOUR SHIT ALL DAY EVERYDAY.

and hell broke lose.He immediately used it against her,confronted her.The result was that she left the guild telling me ,she cant be here anymore because of what this guy is doing.
Then the greekdude told her that I was the one telling him this,so she turned on me too.Instant removed me from everywhere ,like boom,like if nothing happened in the past.

I asked the greekdude why did he fuck me up like that. "I was hurt,sorry ,what was i supposed to do."

I was mad,angry,puzzled.

ANd this morning,while the girl isnt in the guild,I see them doing stuff together again with the greekdude.

I'm having a mental breakdown and the only thing I can do is send logs to her irl boyfriend and nuke her whole world,which is equally disgusting to what she and the greek guy are doing at the moment.
She has a ton of issues irl,lives on debt,doesnt own shit and attends university,barely managing.

I Dont know what to do,I certainly cant raid with my guild like this,however if I leave ,since I'M their main tank 100% attendance neverfails dude,I will disband a guild that existed since vanilla and was a friendly but still hardcore raiding guild.

What do,please help!

I'll be honest, I see a lot of blame to go around.

1st, I'd never dare to lower my defenses for anyone already in a relationship, however tenuous and fragile it might be at that point.

2nd, the greek dude is a douche

3rd, women... that said, everyone lashed out in anger, but to her, you were the one that betrayed her trust, not the greek douchecanoe

4th, screw the raid, your mental sanity is first

personal experience: almost killing myself after finding out my fiancee was cheating on me.


If you must, stop playing for a while, or change/transfer -- you're not bound to those people, specially if being with them will not let the wounds close, and in fact, fester instead...

That sounds pretty awful, sorry man. :(

Sounds like your story would go well in the relationship thread! They might have some good advice for you!

As for the raiding bit, do you enjoy World of Warcraft and raiding? Because if you do, then that's a hobby to not just be thrown away. So as Klaud say, your mental sanity is first - find another guild. If you like everyone else in the guild and they can't replace you, then maybe they'll be willing to let the douchecanoe go in order not to lose you. But don't ever feel guilty about leaving a guild you don't feel comfortable with, even if it puts them in a tough spot. We're all here to have fun, and while "doing the right thing" is commendable (AKA staying just so they can raid) - it's honestly not required of you in this situation.

When it comes to the girl, irrelevant point but out of curiosity, can I assume you're also from Norway from your user name "Nordix"? If you're really into this lady and you feel it's all a bit of an emotional miscommunication, how about getting a friend to talk to her and explain how you feel bad about what happened and don't want to lose her?

I love life and faith.
It truly amuses me how it fucks me up over and over again and shows huge middle fingers witha smile.


After I wrote what I wrote in my previous post,literally 5 minutes later I got news of someone dying in my family.

And no,she is gone for good,I just want her to stop manipulating the greekdude and generally fuck off for good.I'm going to quit raiding for a few days possibly.

Really sorry to hear that. I say just step away from the game for a couple of weeks. I'd personally transfer somewhere else just to avoid running into them altogether.

Nordix...

First of all, hang in there...

Second. you certainly need a few days break, at least. If you can get out of town to see some relatives or friends that might be good. Unplug for a few days, see some movies, meet up with friends.. enjoy some life outside of the game.

THEN come back to the game on your terms.. You are the MT there, so if you still want to be there, take charge, tell the greek to STFU, and be the MT.

Chrome's new omnibox... luckily there's a way to disable it -- i like opening new tabs to my apps as I created a bunch of custom apps/extensions that are pretty much links to the websites i visit the most, including this one.

I think I'm done asking for advice regarding certain things. Asking for advice, only to be given something that isn't advice, but a "hey, start over, and do it this completely different way" is not really helping.

trying to explain why your point is amazing when I point out that your solution is not in the realm of feasibility is not helping either.

I asked for advice about how to progress my build in Path of Exile, and was greeted with options that all involved massive amounts of currency to wipe out passive choices. Massive amounts being:

I could take the currency that would be used to do this change, and trade for an item that I'll probably never upgrade from until they release an expansion with higher level content.

That's just not happening
