Heard a term on a podcast today that might solve the casual-hardcore debate.

Softcore.

Basically, they described softcore raiding as someone who raids on a casual/restricted schedule, but still knows what they are doing and comes gemmed/chanted, knows the tools of the class to a reasonable level, and has all the proper addons and such (DBM, etc). The softcore raider might not play the optimal spec, but instead play they one they know and love (Arcane vs Fire vs Frost, etc).

So you would have hardcore - softcore - casual. The hardcore is of course pushing serious progression, the softcore might be pushing progression as well on a limited schedule, but could still be mostly limited to LFR due to RL restrictions, and the casual, well... we know what's on the shallow end in the water wings.

So.. anyone here would at least be softcore (except for those old farts in the lawnchairs with the rocksalt...).

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.

This one could go in Amusements or Frustrations...

Client: I need to add a client to the client list Blah spreadsheet
Me: There's a button in G1 that will update the clients from the database
Client: I don't know what G1 is. Will you please let us know if this is something we can amend ourselves or do we need to send you a list?
Me: I was referring to cell G1 in the spreadsheet, which says "Clients - Click to Update"

Just another day at the office :mrgreen:

We just got a Windows 8 tablet. Really nice and all, but its the full version. And since our "app" doesnt work on the Windows 8 tablet version yet, we put the "Desktop" version on it. It works and all, there is just one tiny detail...

When you are working in the "desktop" mode, and you tap in a textbox, there is no software keyboard that pops up. So basicly, our app can run on window 8 full version tablets, you just need to bring a usb keyboard, wich is twice the size of the tablet. And it looks really stupid ^^ (Besides that, the HP elitepad is a really nice tablet for what i`ve seen so far!)

Is it bad that my brain auto-completed that link as druid before I followed it?

What rather than drug dealer? No, i think that could probably be seen as a positive.

Took me a while to figure out, but once you combine this with the story about Narnia, this one made me smile a lot :D
