Pray for Me January 8, 2009

I have led myself into temptation.  I have brought something very dangerous into my house.  Something that has been known to Destroy Lives.  It is – well, I should back up a bit.

The thinking machine is here and I’ve set it up pretty much like I intended to.  It’s hooked to the big-assed hdtv and the home theater sound system.  I had a problem with the internet connection for the first night.  The computer could see the modem but not talk to it for some reason.  None of the diagnostic stuff worked and there were no further suggestions.  The next night I swapped out the standard modem for the wireless one I had upstairs (It has inputs for wired access too) plugged it in, installed the software and BAM I was in like Flint.  This is so very, very cool.  I have picture in picture capability so I can still watch tv while mucking around on this thing.  So I’ve been involved with setting up housekeeping, getting to know the new operating system (the Dreaded Windows Vista) and generally having fun.  Tonight though I bought my first game for a PC in years…the  notorious World of Warcraft. I even went ahead and bought the battle chest set that has the first expansion pack.  I’m trying to talk my sister in Indiana into playing too.  She is interested.  I may be dooming us both.

Huh, didn’t even get to play any last night. Too busy downloading patches. Maybe they should call it World of Patchcraft. Jenkies!

And this from the guy who said “Hey, LK, join me in this really freaking addictive game it’ll be fun and I’m sure we can quit any time it’s not like after a while we’d really need the game or nothing and I’m sorta kinda certain it won’t have any detrimental effects on your marriage or warp your kids beyond recognition are you game? Huh? Huh? Are you?”

Is this the same guy?

Of course you have the computer clap and I’m reading back issues, but my teasing still remains valid…
