Heh, of all the things… after I posted yesterday about Shinnokxz trying to get me into World of WarCraft by offering a ten-day free trial, he went ahead and sent me the keycode for the free trial. The thing was, the email that was sent to me with the keycode also included a link where I could download the entire WoW client free. Not being one to pass something like that up, I went ahead and downloaded it. Seeing as it was something like 2.2 GB, it obviously took a while. :-) Once it finished downloading, I took a look at it and was mildly surprised to find that the downloaded client did indeed have both the Windows and the Mac OS X ports included on it. I’ll probably load it up and try it once I get my Powerbook back.
Speaking of the Powerbook, the Apple Store called me and told me they weren’t able to replicate the problems I was having. I had a talk with the guy, and we came to a mutual conclusion. A few days ago I had tried my MS notebook mouse on the laptop I was borrowing, and it refused to work there. What we think happened is that the malfunctioning mouse was also preventing other USB devices from working on that controller, including my USB flash drive. So, I’ve gone ahead and ordered a Logitech V400 Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks, and will have it delivered to the office. In the meantime, until it arrives, I’ll just go ahead and use this old MS Intellimouse Explorer I have. As for the Powerbook, I’ll be picking it up tomorrow night.
Apparently the Overclocked Remix guys have released another site project. This one is called Blood on the Asphalt, and is based off the music from Super Street Fighter II Turbo. I’ve already downloaded it, but haven’t added it to the iTunes playlist or burned it to CD yet. The reason I hadn’t put it on iTunes yet is because I use my Powerbook as the main control for my music library. As for burning it to CD… usually when a site project is released, they release album art and lossless versions. They didn’t release either this time, so I’m going to wait for a few days to see if they do so. (There’s already been a few comments about the lack of album art; apparently the project lead mistakenly thought no one would want it.) If one is interested, one can find it at http://sf2.ocremix.org.
And that’s about it for this end… now it’s time to rest up before work in the morning. Fun fun…
