How stupid do you have to be?

October 15, 2007

This started out a very different post. It originally started life as a post about a stupid pally. Unfortunately it turned into a post about a short term decision by someone I trusted to do better.

First, the pally:

So we had this pally in our guild whom we tolerated for a long while. About the only person in the whole guild that we did tolerate. We tolerated him for a number of reasons:

1. He was a healer. Not as good a healer as he thought he was, but more often than not his healing assignment lived. Mostly. (more…)

Am I addicted to driving my car?

October 5, 2007

car.JPGI like driving my car. I need to drive my car to get to places. Are people lining up to create an addiction to cars? Not being over 100 years old I wasn’t around when cars were first delivered to the mass market. However back when cars were first delivered to the mass market, life was tougher. People had jobs that actually produced things and kept them occupied. They slaved away in factories, created things, grew things, sold things. There weren’t anywhere near the number of experts or people with jobs whose main function seems to be poking their nose into other people’s business. (more…)

When guild leaders go bad

gesthalok9.jpgOkay this is a ninja loot.

I’ve never wanted to go out in a small forgettable way, so I decided to do something big, and perhaps somewhat irrational and stupid. But it was worth it!

I’d like to contribute to Barthilas what I would hope to be a very entertaining video which pretty much describes what this server is about: heart-pounding adrenaline, and the “do anything” attitude laced with much humour.

And he frapsed the whole thing!!

Oh noes my gold is missing!

August 22, 2007

If the search engine traffic is anything to go by, Blizzard is deleting a lot of gold from people.  So Blizzard deletes your gold, and the first thing you do is google looking for information on Blizzard deleting gold?

How about don’t buy the stuff in the first place.  How about if you want to play a game, play a game.  You know how money “Can’t buy me love?“, well money shouldn’t be buying you an in-game advantage either.

By the way when you buy gold or powerlevelling services, and then the same company hacks your account to steal your gold, the rest of us are laughing at you.

Fuck you, you morons.

Seriously are you insane?

Jack Marx, thank you, for your beautiful writing.  Don’t stay away for too long.

WoW as a terrorist training tool

August 1, 2007

Apparently the Australian had a story up about terrorists using games such as WoW as a tool. The direct link to the story now gives a 404 error (those pesky terrorists!), but enough folks out there have quoted the story for the gist of the story to be available:

Kevin Zuccato, head of the Australian High Tech Crime Centre in Canberra, says terrorists can gain training in games such as World of Warcraft in a simulated environment, using weapons that are identical to real-world armaments.

Very Modern Flint-stone.

June 29, 2007

In today’s Crikey they let that ridiculously irrelevant David Flint offer his opinion of why bias in the media is good. Although it seems that the bias is only good as long as it is not (gasp) left bias. He can’t resist having any dig at the left that he possibly can :

And radio offers a wide diversity of views. True, presenters from the left (eg Mike Carlton) tend to rate poorly compared with their direct competition, but that is listener choice.

President stirs debate with evolution remark – World – smh.com.au

August 4, 2005

A debate between scientists and religious conservatives has escalated after the US President, George Bush, said the theory of intelligent design should be taught with evolution in public schools.

The President said both theories ought to be properly taught “so people can understand what the debate is about”.

Erm….. this is like a new dark age.
