With regards to World of Warcraft Beta, I modified a few UI files to make my life (and maybe yours) a bit easier. The changes include: Quest log is instant and shows level numbers Target tool tip moved from the bottom right to top middle of screen Mods that were taken partially from Cosmos: Party HP/Mana/Rage/Energy show always as text Party Buffs (16)/Debuffs (8) always show And something I conjured up myself (the code was always there, just not used): The HP status display bar fades nicely from Green -> [Continue Reading]

After over two hours of banging my head against the monitor, I figured out the solution: The "normal" way many DSL providers offer their service is using what is called "PPPoE" or Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet. Under normal circumstances, this is fine. However, it can cause issues such as this one. The [Continue Reading]

Today, Black Viper and Flipper McQuack will be joined together in marriage. With over 5 years of being together already under our belt, I would like nothing more than to spend the rest of my life with her.

I have removed the "automatic" banning feature of the domain outlined in my Abuse Rant. I have also placed online a page describing the Web Site Layout CSS files and JavaScript file used throughout the domain.

A change in the way I publish information (pass and present) on the domain is coming. A new (but very old) philosophy is in my head and I hope to follow through with it. However, due to my “knee-jerking” behavior in the past, I am going to wait 48 hours to ensure that I am doing “the right thing” until it is “active.”
