The dreaded day has come.
I knew this would happen eventually.
I know someday it might happen to you too.
In my haste to get out the door this morning I forgot something very important. Something critical for my online daily survival. Something without, my day at work will be... well, work.
Yes folks, I forgot my Blizzard Authenticator Key sitting on my desk in my den at home.
The dreaded day is upon me and it is going to be a long one. So, what will my online life be today without WOW... let me run it down for you.
It starts with this little post, then a look at the Drenden forums at the WOW website with a quick visit to read all the QQers in the Druid forums.
At some point I will read over all the new blogs from the likes of BRK and BBB.
Take a visit and read over some new theory crafting on WotLK attack rotations on the Emmerald forums. Toskk has been working on some new models using our new talents and the changes that are happening in the expansion... fun stuff.
Then I will take a visit to Gatorsports.com and check post for content and what not... I am a site admin there and while in the football and basketball off season there is very little interesting to discuss I still need to make sure posts are following the guidelines of the site.
I will check out my Dashboard at Entercard and do some advertising for my blog site.
Hop on Facebook and see if any new friends have turned up or left me any interesting messages. Then check out my Brothers site at MySpace for any new music his Rap group Nothin Less has turned out (NSFW)... I recommend listening to the song "I'm Sorry", most of the others are good too if you are into Rap.
Next I might visit the WotLK site for Wowhead to see if any new gear has turned up that looks interesting. One thing I notice right away when looking at new gear coming out is all the new gems and the mix of stats they provide. I think gear gemming endgame at level 80 is going to be a bigger deal than it was in BC as a way to fix stats on more shared gear across classes.... that is just my guess though. With the nerf to agility as it relates to kitty DPS this ring looks like a decent DPS upgrade.
I will stop and visit my guild forums however it has been quiet lately since we are on a break from raiding, perhaps until WotLK... and a stop by the website for No Vacancy, a guild I have a couple of friends at that I might be raiding with in the near future to see if I fit in. Unfortunately it looks like AC is done raiding until WotLK and I still want to see more of BT and maybe some of Sunwell. Right now I have been raiding on my 70 lock and leveling my Horde hunter. Playing a hunter is probably the most opposite from playing a druid. As a hunter I can basically level while eating a 3 course meal just by sending in my pet, hunter marking the target, hitting it with a poison shot, auto shot, loot, skin, and repeat.... easy stuff hunters.
Lastly, I am going to work on putting Linux on an old laptop of mine. If WOW ran well on Linux I probably would not have a windows machine any longer. Sure I know there are ways to make this work but not only will it not perform as well but I would hate to have Blizzard see it as a hack and shut my account.
If I missed anything else it is answering IT calls, the innevitable "I can't access this folder", "is e-mail down", and the "I think my account is locked" calls... big fun.
