At this time, it is best for you to ensure that all services are set to the default values before updating your system.

I have now placed back online a big chunk of my old gaming information and also included a new page: World of Warcraft Character Listing. As with any major update, I could have overlooked something small or huge. Contact BV and report any errors that you find. It is appreciated.

I found out recently that one of my new co-workers knows who “Black Viper” is while we were casually talking about computers. This set a fire under my butt to try and update the site more and get more information current. In the coming days, I will update the XP and Vista information as well as put more pages online dealing with both. Stay tuned!
