Guild Meet

I will soon be heading out for the 2nd annual Arm of Hades guild meet. We had a whole lot of fun at our last meetup and this year we’ve decided to get together for a whole week. Twenty of us have rented a lodge in Indiana, where we’ll be playing Rock Band, board games, golf, drinking a teensy bit and likely doing a whole lot of talking about WoW.

The 10 hour drive begins at 6am. I feel bad for the people I’m travelling with. I am not pleasant in the morning.

So, I’m going to be away from the blog/Twitter for a bit. I do have an awesome guest post lined up and may even squeeze in a post or two of my own depending on the internet situation. It may take me a little longer than normal to approve and respond to comments.

See you in a week!

(and good luck on Ragnaros!)

Merry Christmas!

I’m off to the in-laws for Christmas (hooray for half-days at work!).

I hope everyone has a happy, relaxing holiday.

I’ll be back next week.

Updated feed

I’ve redirected my blog feed to Feedburner in preparation for my eventual move to WordPress (if I can ever figure out how to do a second WP installation).

Jasyla’s Twitter Experiment

I did the unthinkable (for me, not at all unthinkable for most others) and set up a Twitter account. I’ve been ragging on it and thinking it’s ridiculous for a long time but I never actually tested it out for myself, which is a little unfair.

I joined up on Thursday and followed a handful of bloggers I like. My first impression:

Ahh! So many updates!

A lot of people are quite prolific and seeing new posts come up every 30 seconds was a little overwhelming. I’m sure the fact that Blizzcon was happening exacerbated this. I found it a little difficult to filter the stuff I didn’t care about and pick out the things I was interested in.

I also had some good experiences. I posted about losing my VuhDo panels and almost instantly had people respond with helpful suggestions. That was pretty nifty.

I’m still not completely sold on this, but I’ll continue to make an effort. If you’d like, follow me @Jasyla_

I have one request though. If I ever use the word tweet in anything but a sarcastic and mocking tone, please slap me.

New Blog

I created a new, non-WoW blog over the weekend. There’s not much on it yet, but I will be discussing and reviewing games, movies and books. If you’re interested in those things, give it a look at:

Cannot be Bored blog

I set up the new blog using self-hosted WordPress. Thank you to everyone who weighed in on my blogspot vs. wordpress dilemma. Special thank-yous to Jen, who set up a WordPress install on her server so I could test it out and Zelmaru who gave me some much needed hand-holding and fixed all my HTML problems.

I’ve still got some stuff to do: create a header, find some new stuff to put in the sidebar, add to the blogroll, add any nifty plgins I can find. If anyone has any suggestions or critique I’m happy to hear it.

I will most likely be moving this blog over to WordPress in the near(ish) future, but I need at least a few weeks before I’ll be able to stand looking at themes again.

Update – Lack of Posts

Posts have been a bit lacking lately. I’ve been really busy at work, plus both of my guilds seem to be stuck in ICC. Horde guild is stuck on Rotface. He gets to 30% and everything goes to hell. We are, however, getting Festergut down much more easily. Everyone has really improved their dps. We might change gears and work on Valithria this week.

Alliance guild got Valithria down last week, but has yet to foil Putricide’s plans to destroy all life on Azeroth. We got really close a few times last week, but we didn’t get any attempts in this week. Chinese New Year celebrations occupied a number of our raiders last night so we only managed to get in one night of 25-man raiding this week. Server lag also ruined our usual 10-man nights, so it was a pretty crappy week raiding-wise.

I’m planning to do a few posts on my UI this week, but every screenshot I take in raid seems to be deficient in some way, so it’s taking longer than I thought.
