I think I could have done better than that in first grade…
Last night I decided to buy the expansion pack for World of Warcraft, Burning Crusade because I’m now level 58 and can take advantage of it. I made the purchase, started the download, and went about playing the game. My download lagged out the game so badly that I canceled it and restarted it right before I went to bed. It still wasn’t done this morning due to my computer randomly rebooting in the middle of the night. I re-restarted the download and it ran through the day. I came home from work and my computer was asleep. I re-re-restarted the download. 2 hours to go, it said. I thought, screw it, I’ll just resume the download when I go to bed tonight. When I tried to play I got the following error messages.
So it turns out I need to finish that download before I can play ever again. I finished the download which took at least two more hours and installed the upgrade. Sweet…now I can play! Hah…yeah right! I launched the game, signed in and…
Only 7 more hours until I can play! Which means it’ll probably be three days the way the rest of the downloads have gone.
UPDATE: Jan 22 @ 7:19 AM
I went downstairs to my laptop this morning to find out that the download had finished! When I went to play, however, I was prompted with the following series of depressing screens:
So after all of that I STILL can’t play!
When I started jeremyglover.com in 2005 I used MediaTemple. *GAG*. They are overpriced and have horrible quotas for both bandwidth and storage. I searched for a host and found BlueHost. Woo hooo!
All you have to do is take a look at the stats on the right to see how amazing they are. And for $6.95 per month! Hah! Take that, MediaTemple.
When I signed up, BlueHost offered 200GB of storage and 2TB of bandwidth per month. Now they’re up to 600GB of storage and 6TB of bandwidth per month. Wow!
I’ve had nothing but great service from BlueHost.
Thank you BlueHost!
For whatever reason, mapping network drives in Vista is basically impossible. Sure, you can map the drive once, but as soon as you restart your computer the “Windows could not reconnect all network drives.” message pops up. Great…
I tried to be sneaky and specify the username in the COMPUTER\USERNAME format but was prompted for a security certificate when this happened. Check out the image below.
I’m still at a loss so if anyone knows how to fix this issue please let me know!
