For some reason, I’ve been feeling the urge to give World of Warcraft another try. As I still have the game installed on the Windows PC, it tempts me from time to time.
I’ve quit twice after playing a short time each instance. I just couldn’t get into it. But with Jerry Pournelle mentioning it all the time, and that damned icon on the gaming machine, it is just so tempting.
Oh well. It only costs 15 dollars to see if anything has changed that will capture my fancy. Now that I’ve finished justifying it to myself, I guess I’ll reactivate my account.
Oh and by the way, did I mention I got a nice new MacBook? I was offered one for a price I couldn’t refuse. I guess I’ll be sending back the Dell that replaced my iBook for a few days. It wasn’t a bad machine, but I sure missed OS X.
The bug is old news, but folks have started to actively exploit it.
You really should unregister that DLL or switch to Opera or Firefox. Or just get a Mac.
It isn’t panic time yet, but this could get really nasty.
Monday. Oh, how I hate thee. Rotten to the crunchy center art thou.
For some reason, I feel like I didn’t get any sleep last night. I know I did though. I even had some bizarre dreams. I don’t usually get those on weekdays. My theory is that I don’t sleep long enough to allow REM sleep on weekdays.
My subconscious refuses to be ignored even in those cases. I get all the wacky dreams come the weekend. Saturday morning is always wacky and adventure filled. I wonder if this is common for folks who don’t get enough sleep during the week.
Once, I dreamed that I was dreaming that I was dreaming. I woke up twice into a complete reality that was my own, only it wasn’t. In that way that only dreams can. I’ve only had that happen once, but I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. It may be the oddest and most lucid dream I’ve had thus far.
In geeky news, I discovered rsync.net over the weekend. We’ve been looking for offsite backup at the dayjob, and this looks to be a good fit. The price is a bargain, and I get to use rsync. Together with one of the FUSE encrypted filesystems, I should be able to use all the power of rsync and have a nice safe encrypted offsite backup.
