Back from the Brink

Tuesday, October 17, 2006 8:50 AM

I know its only been like 6 days since I last blogged, but its felt like a lifetime. So what has happened:

Mac Update

So it turns out that my woes with Parallels had nothing to do with the software itself...sorta. That screen asking to do a hard reboot is actually a Mac "Grey Screen O' Death" (Windows only had a blue one...so far I've seen a grey and white one with my Mac...). There's some issue with the version I downloaded (or some RC2 update that I didn't download) and my Mac. So still no Windows stuff running, but that's ok...more than happy to keep Windows off my Mac box.

My hard drive came in...FINALLY. Seriously, it took a few weeks for them to ship a WD 250 Gig hard drive?! Unbelievable...so gotta take it back into the shop this week for the data and hardware transfer.

WoW Update

I've been levelling my undead warrior on Lightninghoof recently, and having a good time serving Silvanis all the while. I still have my human fighter, but I'm getting to the point level wise where I need a group to help me level up...and for some reason my GUILD MATES ARE NEVER ONLINE ANYMORE (sniff). But no guilt or anything. ;)

Work Update

Work has been kicking my @$$ lately, but in a good way. It's just been really busy, which means as a company we're doing well, which is good. We definately have a "we're all in it together" mentality here, so being busy is not looked at as a bad thing, unlike some friends who work for another company that toil to help pay for the owners new rock garden for his home. (Oh yeah, you know who you are.)

So that's it in a nutshell. Gotta get back into the swing of things here in rainy, snowy, windy, cold Winnipeg.

Sorry I haven't been online much, I have been moving, painting, working, and most importantly - I still don't have internet at my new home. Hopefully we will be able to group up some time soon.

Woah...that support site looks awesome! Very nicely done! :D
I've added you to my msn list...give me a ping (this has to do with the Mat Good pic doesn't it? ;) )

No internet at home?! How are you surviving man?! I think you should move into the office for the time being. You can still work, you're probably done moving, and you can take a break from painting to play WoW for a bit.
