Happy Fat Tuesday
Why is it that every single talk for my afternoon class has to be scheduled for during my evening class? WTF? It's really starting to irk me.

So long ago I threw GAIM on my home machine, but then got hooked on WoW. So people had to IM me using Google Talk or the like on my device, which wasn't the most reliable of methods. At one point, when I had forgotten to sign in to GroupWise Messenger with it, a helpdesk employee created an undead warlock on Uldum to ask me for help in diagnosing a computer's problems one Sunday evening. That was a sign that something had to be done.

So, after much prodding by ogun, you can reach me on AIM, ICQ, YIM, or whatever at home most nights as well.

After months and months of denying it or saying it would just be a nice pipe dream, Sirius is buying XM. Obviously, Stern's going to stay, hopefully the commercials XM's started adding to their music stations will not.

Yay for crappily slow USB DVD drives, scratched DVD-Rs, and vendors who put necessary files on the HD without a supplemental disc. And one day maybe I won't have to worry about the different versions of 888111?

Thursday nights at the helpdesk are not for the thin-skinned. And not just because of noone7212. A few weeks ago, I insisted that having a level 70 warlock was something I could put on my grave. Ruth snapped back with, "Well, who's going to write it there?" Ooof! Ever since then she's been on fire with barb after barb, followed by a red-faced apology.

I know Andy enjoyed yesterday's Bourdain marathon, I assume dulamae did as well. The New Jersey episode was one of the few things I copied over from my old dead TiVo. While I know he has as much involvement with the day to day activities of Les Halles as I do at this point, it's been a few months since my last dinner there. I should remedy that.

by the time we die they'll be up to level 80 at least. gotta get with the times, man.

They said we'd have to be 90 to take Arthas on, I thought. So I either have to plan to die early or quit WoW. I don't like either option.

i like the quitting wow option in theory, and so does my wallet... but in practice... DAMN YOU TUESDAY.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 20th, 2007 08:42 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Yeah. Whenever one of my co-workers that plays WoW calls in sick on a Tuesday and someone else makes a WoW joke, I quickly correct them.

I did watch the marathon and enjoyed it, until I had to switch over to 24 :)

As cheesy as I thought the Vegas episode was the first time around, I enjoyed it a lot more yesterday. My favorite episodes are still the far off and random countries.

I really enjoyed watching the mexican border one again, especially the bar scenes.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 20th, 2007 08:24 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I enjoy bar scenes with him, though the Ireland and Iceland bar scenes were better in my mind. I enjoyed the parts of the Tex-Mex episode that were South of the border more, I think.

Now I really wish I had a pancake boat that would visit my apartment in the morning.

Odd fixation

Each NJ location had me looking for Rus somewhere. Very odd. Oh, and I want some of that cheese.

Re: Odd fixation

Sweet. I'll have to friend you so you can see all of my dark and deep secrets about how everyone in my guild makes me nutty.

Heh, I'm sure I'll recognize nobody.

Fun Fact: I have been to a Leon Russell concert.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 20th, 2007 08:45 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Cool. Though I think I prefer this to that. Call me a fool if you will.

Your point #2 about the help desk employee creating an undead warlock to get in touch with you is hilarious.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 20th, 2007 05:59 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
It was pretty hilarious when it happened. A level 1 warlock, looking for help. "You're a high level warlock, can I ask you for some advice?"

"Err, sure."

"So that machine you suspected had a rootkit installed didn't come up as being infected by these scans..."

"Bur?"

But I'm such a sweetheart...
Although I'm contemplating bringing my Nerf gun down now... Much more effective then trying to sneak comments in-between Ruth's.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 20th, 2007 06:01 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
What was the comment last Thursday she made that left her blushing like mad?

Whatever it was, it was the most stinging thing I've been slapped with as of late. You two are dangerous together.
noone7212 From: noone7212 Date: February 21st, 2007 08:38 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I don't remember what she said either... But it was very low, even lower then I was willing to go at that moment. Also very funny. Esp. the red look on her face. :-) Sarcastic people who make stinging comments make life fun.

....a helpdesk employee created an undead warlock on Uldum to ask me for help in diagnosing a computer's problems one Sunday evening.

I find that utterly, utterly hilarious. I'm still snickering.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 20th, 2007 08:49 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I think I have the screenshots from that incident somewhere, my guild thought it was hilarious.
metallian From: metallian Date: February 21st, 2007 04:15 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Seriously, that's pretty fucking funny.

As for the XM/Sirius thing, I am intrigued. For while I did intend to get Sirius when Stern jumped over there, I never did (because I don't spend nearly as much time in the car anymore and therefore have less need of it). Since then, I've been intrigued by XM's music selection. If they manage to combine the best of both worlds, I just might be tempted to sign up. I noticed that Eddie Trunk is on XM when they had it on in the gym recently.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 21st, 2007 05:19 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Yeah, Eddie Trunk and Ron and Fez are the two draws for me, personality wise, for XM. I've been happy with the music on Sirius, though have heard many people praise one or the other over their opposition.

My boss blackbytes traded our logins for a day at work once. She preferred the jam band station on Sirius, I preferred the metal on Sirius but kind of liked some of the genres they had stations for that were lumped with other things under Sirius.

We'll see. Should be interesting.

So what you're saying is, if zombies inspired a global genocide and chaos reigned supreme in the real world, the best way to contact you would be to create a virtual simalacrum of myself and get ahold of you via the fake world?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: February 21st, 2007 06:15 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Err, yeah.

If that's the case, I'd recommend Urban Dead.
