Ok, I know I’ve been neglecting the blog for a good while now. But hopefully that is about to change.  I think I’m finally getting settled into my new home and job out in Las Vegas and things seem to be getting back to some modicum of normalcy.  Only time will tell. I just updated my PC last weekend, so that was nice.  I did the upgrade because so many new games are going to be coming out soon for the PC.  I believe Skyrim will kick things off, followed by … Continue reading

Busy as all get out!

Mostly I’ve been shopping and just generally trying to get ready for the holidays and all the other stuff that goes along with that, like preparing for a 450mi. drive up to my Mom’s house, making sure my laptop is all up-to-date with all of the latest MS patches and gaming patches, etc.  And I’m seriously considering updating the laptop’s dual hard drives from two 80gig drives to two 500gig drives, the 1G RAM to 4G, and the XP Pro to 7 Ultimate.  That will be a weekend project if I really … Continue reading

EVE’n Flow

(it’s a bad Pearl Jam ref. for those not “in the know”) Most of the weekend was spent flying around, if not in EVE then I could usually be found somewhere over the SW US in FSX/Tileproxy.  I did log in very briefly to LOTRO, but mainly just to unload my bags and do a bit of crafting here and there. In EVE, I’m still mining away quite happily and making some good ISK, but the weekend crowds were kind of annoying.  So I took my miners out for a … Continue reading

Into the (Mirk)woods

I got LOTRO all patched up last night while EVE was going through patch-hell, and goofed around on my ‘lil Champion.  Dunno what it is about that class, but I love bashing stuff with my shield.  It has such a satisfying “thump” when you smack things with a big shield.  And I don’t feel like I’m gonna die if anything looks at me funny, which is so very unlike my “main” Loremaster.  After I marched him through all the intro stuff and the first little town after, I checked back … Continue reading

I’ll get you, and your LOTRO too!

Well, I guess that doesn’t really sound like the witch of the West or whatever… Oh well. I’ve decided to go ahead and re-up my LOTRO account, at least through the holidays since it’s one of the few games that I can actually play on my laptop while I’m visiting family.  EVE also works, but I hate playing it “single account” now that I’m so used to multi-boxing it. Anyways, I think I’m going to buy into the whole Seige of Mirkwood expansion as well, even though I still haven’t even entered … Continue reading
