Warlords of Draenor – World of Warcraft

I am throwing the biggest fit ever. I don’t get to play. Not by choice but more by life kicked my in the but and of all things I had to go to HomeDepot and order parts to fix the kitchen cupboards someone in the house broke. (There is a ‘not me’ ghost in the house… again.)

But I so digress. I have had the privilege to watch the Beta edition the past 2 months? And OMG I cannot wait. The game hits the US at midnight the 13th, 7 hours earlier in the GMT. (I where I’ll be at 3)

I follow US and GMT (UK, Ireland) gamers on Twitch and YouTube for the games. I cannot wait to see the opening to the game again… and watch (and maybe glean some tips for when I get to play) and watch and laugh my ass off.. I think by a slight margin better than the graphics being released are the reactions of the players. I mean? The facials for the triumphs and the epic fails. It is wonderful.

Blizzard is releasing some new things soon. I’m not at the place where I can get to all the facts and research I want to make sure I report things accurately. December, January…. All going to be awesome months.

So I am spending time Gaming and watching gamers do what I want. I will get my book done before next December in-between all the playing I’ll be doing.

Twitch, Iphone, YouTube, PC – Aw****!!

web-oct 2014 003      web-oct 2014 005

I did not have a good combination of options last night. I am not a tech-noobie, but boy did I do a noob justice last night. The picture on the left above is just before a moment where I was laughing my ass off. (I can say ass right?)Anyways… Yes, I did have to go and replay it a few times. It was good for giggles. 😀

One of those can I do this moments followed after that.

Can I get this converted to YouTube?

Wait do I even have the right software….

Followed by a search of can I even find the footage? (Footage is there. Just have a glitch in the original recording. But the audio….)

So back to my quest for the search, yes the software is there, yes the Iphone works… wait Iphone needs to update. Update started at 10:02 pm. The little blue bar is not moving… Still not moving after I patiently read part of a book.

Still hasn’t moved. A clue?

At midnight I decided to go to sleep update was not done. Up at 2:30 the OCD in me could not handle the fact that the weather made the WIFI wonky and the update was NOT done. Aaaaaaahhhhh!!

Click on Apple exit, will stop the update. Must restore phone. Restore phone? Huh??  Okay restoration of phone. Requires a computer restart (by then I had all the USB connections screwed up between the assorted portable hardware.)

And restarting the computer gets me this little square blue box.  WTF? Okay, the USB ports got all screwed up. Restart the computer, again. By now I am beating my head against the pillows, the house is cold and dark and I really cannot make a lot of noise.

Its three o’clock in the morning, a sane person would have went to sleep. But the phone is my alarm clock, I am addicted to IG and I have to, have to, have to have it available on Halloween. Did I mention I have to?

Computer and Apple do not even recognize the fact that the Iphone exists. Iphone doesn’t even recognize itself.  I’z a litte perturbed. Now this is running the fact that I got maybe 3 hours sleep the night before? Yah, not impressed.  So, okay I get the phone restarted and figured out. I now need the password to the household WIFI.

I live in a house of people where nothing is ever put back where it belongs. For example:

The pamphlet from the cable company containing the passcode is not in the little red box or the bag of cable stuff. Both logical places to find it.

The Motrin for my niece, who has since woken up with a fever, is not in the medicine cabinet, on the rec-room table or in the kitchen.

My keys are not on the hook.

At this point, priorities get rearranged and I run to the 7-Eleven in my minion jammie bottoms and grab Motrin, 2 Dr. Peppers and a few of those little silver dollar beef jerkies. I felt better after those.

sept oct 2014 181

Okay everything delivered. A little bit of food and some caffeine. Somewhere in the mess of electronics I own there is the password. Quick search through the computer – no go. Kindle, Ipad, well the Iphone is out. It’s what wanted the password in the first place.

Back to the computer:

Network and Sharing Center – click

Wireless Network Connection Center – click (I’m starting to feel smarter)

Wireless properties !! (Small celebration)

Securities. –click At this time I have one of those palm to forehead moments. I mean why didn’t I go here before? I am really not this tech-illiterate. Has to be the lack of sleep.

Okay, passcode entered _ Restoration will take 12 minutes.

20 minutes later (remember the phone said 12? And the internet has been wonky?) the phone is up and restoring back to the other night and it is now a half hour wait for all of the apps to reload. I might just have too many apps.

By this time it’s 5 in the morning. There is no reason to go to bed as I have to get up at 5 to get ready to go to work.

I am now at point A, again. I have the weekend, I think, to get the vid figured out. Maybe…

I’d would say my Halloween started out with a little bit of a trick. And I think I’ll wait to upload the software upgrade for another day.

However the greatest thing? The computer and the Iphone now both recognize that it is there.

Coffee is now a requirement to function. I hope everyone has a great Halloween (if you celebrate) and if you don’t, Have an awesome Friday!

Share Your World – 2014 Week 43 (week 4 for me)

Another week with Share your World – Here’s the questions and my answers below. 😀

What is your favorite time of day?

First thing in the morning when no one has woken up. It’s quiet and I have some peace before I have to pretend to be human. Now it’s starting to get dark so I can take a few minutes to snuggle down and think about what needs to be accomplished for the day.

What’s your favorite charitable cause and why?

Honestly I don’t have one. Sadly what interaction I have had with charities does not leave me with much faith in them. Because of circumstances I really am not wanting to say which charities because they are good organizations.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?

If I could get away with it and the timing was right: in bed listening to my favorite gaming stream on Twitch and reading or writing with a good cup of tea. Right now it’s not raining, and I actually am sitting and writing. I got a few minutes in my day for me. Off to do the parent thing, conferences you know.

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

I prefer a pen. I always smudge the pencil and I have learned 5 years down the road that pen preserves, pencil not so much.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week… well I am grateful. I just had a good time Friday afternoon and learned somethings I didn’t know before. This week? The half hour I have to listen to good music today. Tomorrow? Going to work. Work is a good place to be.

Share your world – wk 3

This is in answer to the questions provided by Cee’s Share Your World Wk 42.

What would be your preference, awake before dawn or awake before noon?

Before noon, where I live dawn really moves around. Though as winter gets closer dawn gets later and later. So I am up before dawn, sleep could be a wonderful thing.  If I could just sleep in the summer past sunrise that would be awesome.

If you could choose between Wisdom and Luck, which one would you pick?

Wisdom, luck could be either good or bad. With wisdom you can see the choices you have for the path in front of you.

If you were given the opportunity for free skydiving lessons would you take them? Why or why not?

Why not? I’ll only live once. Even though I have a hard time imaging jumping out of a perfectly good plane.

Is the glass half empty or half full? What is in the glass?

I honestly drift between the two. Sometimes the glass is half empty when I look at where I am at. Then when I truly look where I am at and where I am HEADING the glass is half full.

As to what’s in it? Something shiny…

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I guess I am grateful I made it through last week. I am looking forward to payday. That is always a good day!

With a click…

Uriel stood in the shadows watching the woman before him. With one click she could change the destiny of the world. He could do nothing until she made her decision. Silently contemplating why he could feel no emotion from her as she studied her choice before her.

If she clicked the mouse, he could interfere, stay protect her. But if she chose not to, then he would be assigned elsewhere. It was strong and strange, this feeling of fate that he must stay by her side.

“I know you are there Angel.”

About to speak, it was the crystal blue eyes that stopped him, eyes so blue as to be colorless.

“Will you kill me?”

“No.”

-click-

“I would have clicked yes either way.” Standing Sefora walked to the angel, Uriel if she remembered. Why had they sent the Archangel of Justice? Was he needed to weigh the scales…

“I have no choice.” She smile reaching out her hand to the one blemish on the man’s face in front of her.

“An angel with a broken nose.”

ggrrrreeee- ggerrree

Uriel went to move the women out of his way, but she side-stepped him and picked up the hell-hound?

“How did you get that?”

“Lucifer gave him to me.” Snuggling the pup a moment, Sefora turned the pup Uriel’s way, “He’s the runt.”
