I've seen...

3.5 disk stuck in 5.25 drive.
5.25 disk folded and stuck in 3.5 drive.
the "hard plastic wrapper" removed and the "floppy disc" inserted into the drive (both 3.5 and 5.25)
5.25 disc folded to keep in the back pocket.
5.25 discs that were kept on a refrigerator with magnets so they weren't lost.
discs repeatedly jammed in the drive the wrong direction and upside down.
3.5 discs inserted into a Zip drive.
Various sign of animal and human teethmarks on the discs.
Discs that went through the laundry (likely after they were folded and put in the back pocket..)
and others...

and always the "what do you mean my files are gone... you just don't want to help".

Quite a while back, I had a tech from our IT group pull out a CPU upgrade card to reset it WHILE THE SYTEM WAS BOOTED... (old Mac IIci that had a PowerPC upgrade card).

we kept getting to three protectors before 85% and we needed to have just 2 up. 6 dps. so it's me, warrior, rogue, shadow priest, lock and mage. me, shadow priest, mage and lock for the most part do solid dps...the warrior and rogue...especially the rogue...not so much. the monk that we had would have been better than the warrior so that probably could have helped us a good bit...but he stopped raiding.


Yeah, in my case, someone would always fail at their spark, or their tower, and we'd never get 4 and 4. Our fill-in this week was good and pushed us through that. But don't know what will happen next week. If we fail again, the finger-pointing will start, and the push to replace people with begin. That's when I leave.
We finally downed Elegon last night, after about 60 or so pulls total. This is the second time we got into 3'rd phase, to be honest the first we knew we had no chance we only wanted to see how the healing was(it looked brutal, but now i think it was just because the healers had to move and couldn't heal that much).
on the kill we had a frost DK pulling 55k dps but she did die at the start of 3'rd phase possibly losing the bloodlust and 2 more dps pulling under 70k. I'm an offspec shaddow priest and I was second on DPS pulling 98k dps and I have no words to describe how much bullshit that is on a fight where you have a 50% damage increase buff.

to be honest, the fight felt nerfed a bit, I'm actually hopping it's because the DPS improved( I and 2 other dps'ers improved by about 10-20k dps). What helped allot was setting goals and wiping immediately after failing them, adjusting if necesary (we played allot with how many and who should be on the adds) like spark kills, smoth-fast transition to Phase 1 again, ads.

Even so do not despair: remember that now you can upgrade gear. Considering you are on Elegon most of you (especially mele) will have blue(heroic dungeon) gear that can be upgraded by 1.5k Justice points(that are not capped and you don't waste like VP). Even 1 upgrade like a weapon upgrade for the mele dps will help by TONS, consider upgrading trinkets and weapons first these should have the biggest impact on DPS or Mana regen for healers.


just found our that our raid leader is not dead, so now we are waiting to find out if we have to start with other people or if he was just taking a break.

i actually only have two 463 items...so i upgraded my belt. holding off upgrading my lfr sword for the moment. if we are not doing anything anymore...i may or may not upgrade it. just need to see what we are doing.

heck, i may just go fury warrior full-time if we stop raiding. execute is fun.

My roommate finds it hilarious that I will have fits at idiots in other cars when I'm the passenger.

I do the same thing, Ami, it just doesn't compute with them, lol.



Frustrations....sitting on Dalan for a chance at the Brawler's Invite, lose the tag(s) to some one who just sweeps in a moment before he spawns, and then they get the invite. Two people didn't know what it was for, and another three said it was their first time killing one of the rares...I've racked up 13 so far with nothing.

New 'work' shoes to replace 2 pairs that I had literally worn out.

Yay blisters from a walking on concrete factory floors and getting some rub that didn't appear on the carpeted surface at the store (seriously... maybe a bit of vinyl flooring to try things out on? would it kill em)? I must have some sort of mutant heel/ankle, because pretty much every single dress shoe (except a particular set of cheaply made ones that wore out too fast) rubs in the same place even when arguably the proper size for the rest of my foot, and seems to not happen on soft surfaces.

but yay for moleskin.

I hate the Alliance ganking gang on my server so much. Can't ever do pet battles any more because there are 4 people stalking me for fun just killing me every 10 minutes. Why does my guild have to be on this horrible server? :(

I seem to hear a lot about competitive raiding guilds on PVP servers... and I'm always curious: is it because of population (I'd imagine they tend to be lower pop than PVE/normal servers) making less competition in the drive towards a server first? Or is it just one of those 'we've always been here' kinda things?

It's actually the other way around, population is usually higher on PvP servers (with notable exception of Silvermoon :P )

For us it's a "we've always been here" kind of thing. We talked about moving before MoP (mostly because the server economy is completely shit), but it's hard to convince people to spend real money on it. Especially when you consider alts and out of guild arena partners etc.

Computer overheats because one of the fans on my cpu came loose and fell into another one causing a whole lot of fuck. Got it fixed no worries but also got replaced for the raid today and missed out on at least one guild first within. I get why they sat me but it took me five fucking minutes to fix it and I'll sulk about it if I damn well want to. Especially when I get sat for people who didn't sign up. Also fucking fuck bitter. Just goddamn bitter.

Sulk.
