Re: Nekochan.net operating costs?

Is that the cheapest SDSL plan? Is a SDSL plan really required when it comes to bandwidth? And you have to pay extra for a static IP too, right? That is a decent price in my area for good SDSL - virtually all SDSL connectivity has been lumped into business class connections, which usually means a s...

Sadly, I never managed to pull out enough free time for Aion over the break - too much family and shopping, I guess :(

Free to a good home: *Apple* WWDC 2008 LAPTOP BAG

All - I have an official Apple WWDC 2008 laptop bag (swag) that I've never used - I can't bring my self to throw it away, and it's not worth putting up on the auction sites, so I'm just asking price of shipping (probably $10.00-$15.00 U.S).

Re: Snow leopard is it worth the upgrade?

For $29.00 the 10.6 upgrade is absolutely worth it (of course, I has a seed key which gives me access to the builds regardless, hehe) - I've also tried to promote, help, and encourage people to make the switch. You'll get some disk space back, the Exchange support is fantastic, and overall 10.6 perf...

Re: Mac Pro 2006 Upgrade

I've been having a lot of fun with it so far; I'm on the Fregion server and have playing mostly with a Chanter and Gladiator. Leaning towards the Chanter though :) Nice - most of the reviews I've read thus far have been positive, and the game looks fantastic (its using the Fry Cry engine I think). ...

Re: Mac Pro 2006 Upgrade

Cool cool - I'll look into it! Thanks for the posting!

Aion presently

That's on my horizon as well, since I let my WoW account expire last spring - probably pickup a copy once Christmas break starts and I get some time off :)

Re: Mac Pro 2006 Upgrade

I decided to upgrade my old 2.66GHz Xeon 5150 Mac Pro rather than buy a new one, so installed the following over the past week I've been thinking about upgrading my MacPro1,1 (Woodcrest 5130s) but haven't really looked into yet - the system isn't really doing much right now except for file serving ...

Re: Who here plays WoW

Both. At the moment I'm leveling a Draenei warrior (at 55 right now), but I have a level 70 Blood Elf Mage on the same server (and some other assorted Horde characters). I play on Sentinels. I've always found not being able to roll apposing fraction characaters on PVP servers annoying as hell. Anyh...

Re: Who here plays WoW

I played a bit over the holidays but allowed my account to expire - and I really haven't played much since last winter, when I retired my main and quickly leveled a Warlock to 69. But, I might be interested in reactivating my account if I had a reason to.... I only play Horde however, unlike most of...

Funds for Leopard? There are some great deals on the Intarweb - or so I've been told.
