Spoke too soon…

So, yes we were back, and! we gotz the Itch King…now we need a suitable computer. The very same day Lich King was released, my always faithfull Dell Laptop decided it was time to hang the towel, the video card burned (literally) and it now only works as a very messed up office computer…with some luck and tries. So I was left with one choice: Meara and I were to share her laptop. Now, that one handles Burning Crusade “OK”, nothing great, all settings down, etc. But Lich King is a tad heavier than the previous expansion.

As such, I had a lag-tastic experience during that week, and I was…well, not satisfied, nor happy, but I suppose I at least was playing huh, and Meara was too, so that’s something. Oh no, that wouldn’t be allowed. Three days ago her laptop took a nose-dive into Hard Drive issues!.

Now, after a few testing and more thinking, I’ve transplanted ( O.o WTH) my hard drive to her computer, and at least last night it seemed to go well enough. We shall see, and hope it lasts long. EDIT: Forgot to mention, while installing windows and office apps, and WoW on my ex-hard-drive, the DvD drive decided to start acting up, wooopie! 

In-game, I got as far as some Zul’drak, and level 76, slowly crawling my way there and not daring to do instance runs, something that is slowing down my leveling a bit more. We have some 80’s in the guild already and it won’t be long before we start wanting to venture into Naxx, I must hurry, that…and I have to get another computer so Meara and I can play like the old times.

Ah yes…that was the last time I buy a laptop as a main computer, ever (even if it’s a gaming one).


And We’re Back!

So, a lot …and I mean LOT has happened since the last post, from me being utterly broke and unemployed to me working as a salesman, to Meara and I moving, again. That’s out of game, in-game (once I was able to play again that is), also a lot has happened, going from struggling at Lurker, to going into BT (4/9), Hyjall (4/5), finishing SSC and almost done in TK (Kael refuses to die).

So, I’ll go slow and will start with the subject that has to do nothing with WoW, to then “talk” about the WoW stuff in a future post.

What happened to us? Where have we been? Ok, so …after a long (2 months-ish) of unemployment -if that’s a word- and scratching everywhere possible for money, I finally found a job, as a salesman for a nation-wide department store, in their toys section. Soon after my brother proposed an interesting idea: to come live with him at Veracruz, a big city 1 hour away from my home town.

After a very hectic trip, we arrived a week ago, and I can’t say how happy I am. While this poses a series of other problems and possible chaos, Meara and I are living a lot more freely now, while the apartment is not anything out of this world and is actually quite small, the city itself is great, and opposite to the old town, the weather is hot, but nice. A very nice cool breeze blows into the house at almost all times, but it is most noticeable by night.

There’s a very big mall just 5 minutes away by foot, that places a huge money-spending temptation on us (ok on me) that will have to be controlled, and the beach is only 15 minutes by foot. Meara is quite happy due to a Dairy Queen at bus-trip distance, or at 30-40 minutes walk.

Although my first impression was that we would find a problem to get our internet back, turns out my brother already had internet where he lives, therefore we’re back in game.

What remains right now is for me to find a job here, to get the expansion pack somehow, working on that now. Sadly I forgot to pack our camera, so no pictures for now, but soon enough I’ll have some.
