A few days ago I stimulated the economy by purchasing a new HP computer. It’s a nice mid-range PC (2.4g processor, 4g of ram, 256 video card, Vista SP1) that I got on–sale but it is 10x better than my broken PC that has now become an oversize paperweight. Of course my broken PC is 4+ years old made from older PC parts.
Once I got everything hooked up and running I decided to install WoW first. Forget about word, adobe, xls, or any of the important stuff that my wife needs in the computer. Nope, I had to get my WoW fix (I was jonesing). So for the next 3+ hours I spent staring at an installation bar moving from 0% to 100% and getting the patches. I reminded me of the old department store commercial when a lady is at the front door saying “open, open, open”
I was finally able to log in and the first thing I did, not run an instance or the battlegrounds….the stupid cooking quest in Dalaran. For some reason my mind is program to complete it everyday. With me out for a few weeks I didn’t skip a beat.
Ah well at least I was able to log on and enjoy the game once again.
It’s good to be back!
