You (almost) called it Worldie;
Diablo, World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Hearthstone players may be impacted by high latency and disconnections during their gaming experience that are the result of a series of DDoS attacks on certain European online services. Although Blizzard’s infrastructure isn’t targeted, the disruption effects rippled and have been felt by a portion of our players’ population.

I hate April 1st. They teased new female Draenei for today. I was looking forward to it. The design is ugly and includes the following:

The original model was never very popular among players, and while certainly there are the few who dearly love playing a female Draenei, we felt like we needed to start over.


This day needs to just go away.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I also hate April Fool's Day. Some chick at work brought in white sugar covered doughnuts. Only they were covered in baking powder. I was the first sucker and tried to stuff the whole thing in my mouth. Only to spit it back out while she took pictures. I've since heard her nail about six other people on the floor. UGH.

Never encountered people doing things like that in real life. I just see the day as one where lots of websites do fun/stupid stuff.

(And there are some good bits in these new patch notes they've released, heh.)

That tends to drive me to violence.

I don't understand what it is about this random fucking day in which people think it is ok to inflict harm on others for their purely selfish amusement.

I tend to draw the line at "harmless fun", i.e. takes 5 minutes at most to realize and one more minute to set back to normal. Ya know, paper fishies, tape on the laser of the mouse, that kind of stuff. The point is to have a laugh *with* others, not *at* others.

Had a weird case on the radio this morning - they usually do a "Happy Birthday" skit, calling someone on behalf of an auditor. So they call a girl, and after the little song they hook the guy up on the line. Girl sounds sour, so the radio people try to smooth it out a bit until she goes apeshit about the guy cheating on her and things devolving in their life story going on radio, while the anchorpeople try to shuffle it out the air ASAP.

Turned out it was all a prank a couple actors played on the anchors. I'll be honest, I think it might have miffed me more than necessary, had I been in their shoes...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Rather amusingly, she sent out a powerpoint presentation to the entire floor with pictures of the people she did and did not prank. She got a lottttt of people. I kind of felt better that it wasn't just me... but I still had trust issues for the rest of the day. :s

This was just as I was about to spit the disgusting thing out...

LOL Your expression is akin to finding out you're eating Rocky Mountain oysters after taking that first bite.

And it sounds disgusting, too.

My Work did a fake press release about up coming product development. Emailed it to all our customers. While not a new concept, I thought the email blast it self was pretty damned funny.

Cheers.

So at work, we have two different soda machines - Pepsi and Coke. I'm not even interested in the soda part, but the caffeine I had (iced tea) wasn't working at all. So I went downstairs to get a Pepsi to just sip on the rest of the day, but the machine proudly announces, "SOLD OUT" - which means, everything.

My roommate is in a different building, and offers to check his. "Nothing Coke, but if Pepsi is out, Mountain Dew is ok." (There are no other caffeine options.)

He brings me a Mountain Dew.

It is HOT (like he threw it in the microwave for a minute).

This is not a case of just-freshly-stocked, as the Pepsi is out.

What the hell...

(Fortunately, I have disposable cups at my desk, so I just went to get some ice.)

Six months after stopping the game, I want to treat myself to a farewell Figureprint of my beloved Queldan.
Goddamn things are expensive as fuck :-/
