In A Pyckle!

The terrible pun monster has struck again! But really, I AM in a pickle! My computer went boom last week. I can't even begin to tell you all the things I had on it. And of course I hadn't touched my external hard drive to back anything up for like...months? A year even? Saaaad panda!

I just barely finished the WoW Factor Deathwing and realized that of course I no longer I have all the screen shots of MY favorite outfits from the contest. I took screenies and had planned to list some of the sets that caught my eye while I was mingling after awards were handed out. No such luck. I am sincerely hoping that I will be able to salvage something, maybe if the hard drive is still good I can put it in one of my other machines. Maybe...not holding my breath though.

I've ordered a new machine from Several friends said they were good. Wow, a new gaming set up. Last time I bought a whole new set up was fifteen years ago when I first embarked upon the stormy sea of internet gaming. I won't tell you how much it cost. It was super high speed for the time. It had, OMG! an ethernet card! High speed, I'm telling ya. Last couple computers were builds. I did make sure to /snicker xmog my computer! I mean I did get a fancy case and quite a bit of cosmetic fluff this time. That's a first for me.

Now for the scary part. It's already giving me nightmares. I dreamt it arrived and it was the wrong case, the case was too small so they took the power supply of it's metal box and just crammed the guts into the bracket. Another time all the fans were broken so I went to the store to buy new ones and they only had used ones that were covered with cobwebs. Then it took five weeks to get and each week they charged my credit card. It didn't turn on. Everyone else could start it but me. And so on and so forth. Yeah, I'm nervous about getting it. I am NOT obsessed or anything! Or have any sort of computer addiction issues whatsoever! It should arrive next week.

In the mean time, working from my lag top. I did discover a particularly wonderful set of armor in MoP btw. It's the answer to a request I (and others) made on the forums quite some time ago. I'm tickled pink they added it. I'll be posting the full details of the armor set next week.

  1. Hey Pyckle, are you still working from your laptop or did you get your new computer? Were you able to salvage anything? It's one of my biggest fears to loose everything I have stored on this comp. Good luck!
