Well my original plan, tuberculosis way way back in the day, was to take several days off work and level my JC shaman healer most of the way to the cap and try to make a killing on the JC market.

This and that got in the way and I eventually found myself unable to take any days off during the release of Cataclysm, and little time to game at all.

Since then I have leveled a bit and got Flowersz’ Jewelcrafting skill up to the point where she needs to buy recipies to progress any further. And that is a minor problem, you see I didn’t find the daily quest giver until recently so I don’t even have enough “tokens”  to buy a single recipe!

That said, there’s a chance she could still level enough to make a killing, or, alternatively she could just sell the JC gems for what wowhead recons is 600-800 gold each! That’s a lot of gold for a daily and it certainly looks very tempting. The biggest fly in the ointment is having to go to Stormwind to get the daily!

I might level my paladin instead – I’ve got a couple of drops already that he can use and there’s been a couple of byproducts from JC’ing that are suitable for him too.

Still undecided.

Little on the slow side here.

Strange that I’ve not seen this any-were else, urologist but the day that they released Cataclysm and more significantly Worgen, which we all know are werewolves, was a night when the moon could not be seen – aka the exact opposite of a full moon?


Well, probably yes.

I got slightly freaked

Filed under: General — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 8:09 am

A few days ago I was reading an article in new scientist (Summon a ‘demon’ to turn information into energy), tuberculosis it’s the usual kind of stuff except one phrase really caught my eye: at room temperature, link one bit of information converts to about 3 x 10-21 joules.

That’s freaky! I’ve often come across phrases taking about about data-compression and entropy in the same sentance, but this small statement means that there is a real, honest to goodness, relationship between the physical world and the world of information.

The numbers are still very small, but none the less actual numbers!

Slightly less freaky, but impressive is that someone called Leó Szilárd actually worked out this value theoretically way back in 1929, and have been shown to be right by this experiment.

1929 – that’s 10 years before the first electronic computers!

Advent Calendar

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 5:26 pm

After several days of eclairs (yuk) finally got some real chocolate.

Our advent calendar is in the pic below and was a cheapish something we bought a couple of years ago when we didn’t like the cardboard prepacked calendars on sale. Each day is a little box, sickness and we fill them with chocs at the start of advent.

A friend of ours used to fill one with marbles, for sale tiny blacksmiths puzzles, pair of magnets and other tiny stuff, but we’re not quite up to that.

Level 80

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 8:06 am

Well, prostate I was worried a few weeks ago that I wouldn’t manage to complete the palatank project, visit this vis a vis getting Fflow to the level cap before Cataclysm was released. I did make it though, a few days back, making him my second only character to hit the level cap.

Level 80 achieved, I began to buy him some cheap auction house blue quality gear for to start running heroic dungeon. When I suddenly realised that there wasn’t a lot of point. A freshminted tank in blues just wasn’t going to be able to cut the mustard when all of the DPS were going to be in tier 10 epics! I have already had a little experience of this the other day in CoT Culling of Stratholme trying to keep aggro off a full epic Hunter.

Fortunately Cataclysm will be out in a few days and the playing field will level out again after a little bit. Also I’ll get to group with my guildies for a change. And I can legitimately ask them to behave. If they don’t we’ll at least be able to have a laugh about it.
