Thoguht’s UI

Thog’s UI

More or less what it is  now.  I’ve replaced CT with Bartender3 and KHThreatMeter with Omen.  I also don’t use Natur’s Enemy CastBar anymore…

  • Unitframes: PitBull
  • thing up top: FuBar (with QuestFu, LocationFu, etc.)
  • buff icons: Buffalo2
  • tank windows and other raid stuff: oRA2
  • what you can’t see: Cartographer, Auctioneer, SWStats, ItemRack

To get most of these, use the WoWAce Updater tool for ease…  🙂  See my previous post about Ace.

Fallout 3

I heard earlier that Bethesda (the folks who made Oblivion) would be making Fallout 3, which of course is great news, but it didn’t sink in until I finally saw the trailer.  Oh, man…

Zelda piano Medley

I dunno what it is.. but this medley almost made me tear up. Tons of Zelda fans participate in a shared experience. Think about it… While everyone may have varying degrees of attachment, it’s still true that millions of people around the world know what it is like to play Zelda.

Ace is easily the best addon suite for WoW

Their site is a little hard to navigate, but to make things easier, just click on the WoW Ace Updater on the left there… or actually, to make it even easier, just download it here. Then run it and see all the cool addons you can pick!

Must haves are FuBar, Cartographer, either agUnitFrames or PitBull, and, if you do raids, oRA2 and Big Wigs.

What’s funny is that two different people recommended the Ace Updater on the same day. Hooray for viral networks!


Yep… I’ve been playing Lord of the Rings Online this past week and think it is pretty awesome.  My subscription to WoW runs out in June… not sure if I will be renewing.

Part of the reason I am finding it fun is that a couple of my WoW guildmates are playing, and I enjoy hanging out with them.  Not sure yet if our social network will sustain the game, but I pre-ordered so will be playing for at least a month.

divided loyalties in WoW?… and Jade Empire and papers!

So, two weeks ago I worked my ass off to get a key made in World of Warcraft so that I could go with a group of people from an allied guild to a 10-man dungeon known as Karazhan.  I was invited because apparently the server was lacking in 70 rogues at the time (who the people in the guild like… ).  Anyway, after many hours working on it, we finally went for the first time last week (Friday and Sat nights).  And it was fun!

Buning Crusade instances attunement

But to get there, I basically had to outrun some of my own guildies who were also working on getting keyed and solo/stealth some of the steps instead of waiting for them.  Now a week later, some of them are still working on it and more are catching up to where they are.  In a few more weeks, there should be enough people in my guild to go.  Then I’ll have an interesting decision to make.  Do I ditch the allied guild for my own guild?  How permanent was my invite to the group, anyway?  How will players from both guilds take my seemingly loose loyalties?  Or is it a non-issue given that I was available and helped our allies and have always said that I prefer in-guild raids?  We’ll see…

The past couple of days, I’ve also been playing a lot of Jade Empire.  I’ll write a review soon.  But I’ve also been writing papers and such for the end of quarter and now need to work on a book chapter with Lisa!
