World of Warcraft

Last Tuesday the World of Warcraft expansion came out, and at the urging of my also partially WoW addicted girlfriend and a coworker, I took the week off to obsessively play.

You see I don't really have a good idea what one is supposed to do with a vacation and I get caught up in routine so I don't really feel like deciding what to do. Also my job is pretty good, and I don't usually feel the need to "get away from it". The end result is I've been a work-a-holic american and maxed out my vacation time.

The end result I played obsessively for a week, and worked through some of that obsession, there's some other interests I also want to pursue. There's full plans for an additive fabber, there's all sorts of interesting things to be built with gumstix and there's also an interesting project for running a port of apache on my phone.

Although I'm also curious about some meta-WoW topics. Blizzard's art department has been designing a variety of cities (well towns) that have interesting and consistent architectural motifs. Is there a 3d-computer generated world could take the place of having to commute into an office space? And would the necessary networking infrastructure bring us closer to carbon neutrality?

As a side note-Dang the guy living in the apartment next to me is #()@*$@ loud (though perhaps the walls of this apartment are only a small step up from paper.)

Dang 68! I'm slow... I'm only almost 64.

Vent'd be fun.

I took that to mean secretslip was WIRED. On what i'm not sure, but she wants to do mulitple things at once. mainly Vent and play, and there still isn't enough time so the universe should be paused.

Kinda makes you wonder...
