Pocket Lint Post — Double or Nothing

Posted in Pocket Lint Post with tags , , , , on March 19, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

I spend most of the weekend trying to get set up with dual boxing. On Saturday I could not get Keyclone working, or so I thought. I was cursing Windows 7 as I suspected that was the culprit. Sunday I realized that I was getting the controller in range and then casting. And the clone did nothing. She did nothing because she wasn’t in range … duh. I know, it’s hard sometimes, but I’m all I’ve got to work with, geez. So there they are, Shamimi and Shamami! I have no idea what I’m doing but it’s fun. I need to spend more time reading about dual boxing but as usual I’m just doing it. Hate taking time out to actually READ how to do it properly. I had planned on two Goblin Shaman but forgot they wouldn’t be available with just vanilla which was probably for the best as I don’t think I can face another Cata starting zone.

Yeah … this. I KNEW I shouldn’t have let her compete in Matty’s Leather and Lace. It’s so embarrassing. As soon as she read the results she rushed to the tailor shop and had that sash made, she’s been parading around Stormwind like that ever since. Batting her eyes at the guards and that dark, brooding looking guy in the Slaughtered Lamb. NEVER AGAIN Druid, I mean it!

So I’m way behind on my blog reading AND I have all the news about Mists to catch up on. I’ve read just a bit and already I have a conundrum. Do I want a black and white Panda Lady or red and white. I like the traditional black and white but on the other hand the red and white gets to have a tail! I have a lot on my mind … sigh. Yeah … really, I’m not kidding. Of all that I’ve read this is what I’m obsessing over. And YAY! Another slot, just one but still I’m happy.

I have  so much to do. I’m getting excited about seeing all the entries in the Mog Madness event and I have to get caught up with all my reading because on March 21st I’m sure a lot of my favorite writers and rhymers will be responding to Mr. Bear’s writing challenge and I’ll have lots more good things to read!

And OMG, are they kidding. It’s been so long since I’ve received any rl work that I admit I felt a little put out when someone HAD THE NERVE to send me some. Can’t they see I’m busy here! There are incredibly important decisions to be made here! Black and white or red and white. They are however, offering rl money which is always appealing I must say. Actually almost as good as gold … almost.

Throw the Shaman Overboard

Posted in General WoW with tags , , on March 16, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

I was recently involved in a whole cost cutting mission in real life. The story about Twain and the woman with no vices came to mind, if you have no ballast to throw overboard, you’re in trouble. I found we have little to no financial ballast. The only thing I could come up with was two game subscriptions. That’s it.

Anyway, the need for cost cutting has passed for now and I’m looking to gain financial ballast because really, you must have something to give up when times are bad. That logic works for me, sensible, don’t you think? So, what to do, what to do. It has to be a monthly bill  … like a subscription, yeah, something like that.

I can’t quite remember when, but it was probably back in BC, I saw a video of multiboxing Shaman. I was smitten. Then Wrath came and with it came the quest The Earthen Oath in The Storm Peaks. Yay! I’m multiboxing! I don’t want to do anything extravagant, just dual-boxing would be fine. So now I have to figure out how to do this. I remembered Martha at was a dual-boxer maybe she’d have advice. I found her post on Keyclone to start with and I’m going to study up and see if I can do this.

My apologies for typos and nonsensical sentences. Once again I’m being intimidated by WordPress to met my next goal, so against my better judgement I’m posting a post that was written without my contacts in. This is ALWAYS a bad idea but WordPress can be so FORCEFUL in its encouragement that I’m going to cave in and hit publish … I’m such a wuss. And THERE IS the gold starry thing you get when you reach a goal which of course is a rush.

Don’t know for sure if I’ll actually do it but this is at the top of my “add financial ballast” list right now. I mean, two Shamimis, how cool would that be! And really, I’m not having much luck with anything else for my list, I don’t know, Fruit of the Month Club?
