Raiders Win!

Hooray for the Oakland Raider win yesterday!

McFadden was great, though it sucks that Fargas was injured.  Now hopefully they can continue winning.

Warhammer Online Goes Live!

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning went live at least for people who preordered the Collector’s Edition.  I was one of those lucky people, so I was there.  Servers went live at about 11:00 am central time, and I managed to get started at about 11:30.  I got everything patched up, made my characters on my guild’s chosen server (Phoenix Throne), and then proceeded to sit in a queue for about an hour.  Luckily this gave me some time to make lunch and put my son down for a nap.

Things went pretty smoothly overall.  There were some problems, though, like the game kicking me to the character selection screen only moments after I finally got through the login queue for the first time, which meant I had to sit in that queue a second time before I could play.  They raised the population cap about halfway through my time in the queue and I got in early then I expected.  After that it was all smooth sailing.

I join up with my friends, ran some public quests, played a few scenarios, and helped to form the guild.  A little later after a scenario ended, they were kicked to desktop, while I managed to stay in the game.  We decided to stay away from scenarios for a bit in case the same thing happened again.  So we ran more PQs, and I managed to roll pretty terribly for the end loot in most cases.  Placing in the top 5 for contribution and then rolling sub-100 rolls doesn’t lead to many wins 😛

All in all it was a great time.  The servers were stable and there was almost zero lag.  Things ran great.  I’m loving the fact that I can actually play a character that won’t disappear in the next few days.

Hats off to Mythic for a great launch.  Keep it up!

Random Images

Just a few of my favorite pictures from an old blog that I wanted to save before I blew the site away.

New Blog!

Great, just what I really needed.  Another place on the internet that will probably get forgotten.  Oh well.  Hopefully this will get a little more action.

For now, this will probably just contain random pictures, musings, talk about Warhammer Online, paintball, disc golf, etc.

Hope you enjoy.
