I am back. I will be blogging. Though I had a lovely time away, I have nothing to report of great interest. Though I could share one World of Warcraft anecdote before I sign off for the night. Oh, what the hell, nobody tires of WoW, do they? *grin*
Last week, I logged on at some extra busy time and noticed something very strange. It seems a nudist group had set up camp in the city I was in. All around me were unclad Night Elves. "Is this some sort of strange convention? A protest maybe," I thought to myself. Then I started noticing that, in fact, it was me, not them. It was some sort of strange connection issue. It seems that I was getting some
of the info about the other players in the world (like that they were there) but not what they were wearing. This amusing (but annoying) bug continued to plague me on and off. I thought it was something everyone was suffering through silently, but discussions with some friends revealed that they had seen no such thing. It seems I was extra lucky.Finally, I'd had enough. I mentioned my woes to my company's resident WoW expert (every company has one of those, right?). He knew exactly what I was talking about and directed me to the official workaround to the problem (which oddly makes no mention of the nakedness issue, but I guess this is a family game, and we don't want anyone to accuse Blizzard of secretly putting this in on purpose to give people some sort of extra kick. For those weirdos - er... interesting folk who get off on digital nakedness). Anyway, I followed the directions in the post and my problems are fixed. No more strange conventions of unclad Night Elves. And if anyone is planning on organizing such a grouping, let me know, so I don't think I've gone mad! I can think of worse bugs, but a more amusing bug I haven't experienced.
