Thing is I never really eat much of the traditional Thanksgiving food. This year in particular I only had a few bites because for some reason, even after not having eaten previously I was not hungry at all and the food was rather tasteless, but I didn't bring up the latter. It wasn't until around 3am that I actually got hungry and went out and got a burger.
When I first bought my machine, prior to me knowing how to install my own cards/components, the GPU it came with busted just a few months after I bought it. The replacement GPU started failing a few months after the warranty finally expired. Around this time I actually got further along with my schooling so replacing a GPU would be a sinch. I bought my own QUALITY GODDAMN GPU and put it in myself. Works amazingly to this day.
Not all hardware is created equal. I can easily replace any cards or RAM sticks or what not because it's as easy as unlatching the old ones and slotting the new ones into place. I'm less confident about switching out motherboards or power supplies.
Just the subject matter makes it a worthy purchace...speaking of playing as dragons, I think Istaria is still online. Which is speaking leaps and bounds considering much younger and well funded MMOs flounder and close down.
Yep, Istaria is still online. Good for them. They get by on their tight knit community, dragons, and the crafting in the game is actually unmatched. Probably one of the few (if not only) MMO I enjoyed crafting.
That's odd, I never had problems installing it. Was a subscriber for a long time...I thought it's actual combat system was kind of archaic so I didn't level very far. I just remember being a little hatchling gliding around and tugging around a wheelburrow full of crafting supplies and building random stuff
Although the music on the island was pretty cool at first, I thought it was a bit too...well, "busy" for a hatchling going around clanking at ore. So I decided to mute it and have Spyro music playing in the background. Yes, my dragon was purple and yellow. No, I regret nothing.
I bought it and going to go play it, I was reading the patch notes and I'm pleased with how fast and how meaningful the updates are, and it definitely seems the devs are hard at work to get this game up and running. Even more pleasing is the steam commentors actually knowing this is pre-alpha, and are all full of support and constructive criticism.
Anyway, the game has went from virtually unplayable to playable in a couple of weeks. So it's had great progress so far. The thing I'd reccomend they fix pretty soon is the camera controls, as I can only really adjust it sanely while in flight. Other than that I can kill stuff, eat their cubey gibs, and gain experience. The health and stamina systems seem to be in working order. Can't wait to see how the game shapes up.
Veluux dives deep into an explanation for Understanding the open development process on both Landmark and EQN. After reading this article I can see and understand what Veluux means. So many people do not understand that when you get early access to something. That it is not early access to a complete game. You are one of those lucky ones that are getting early access to aiding in the development of the game. Your voice gets to be heard. Sure you get the benefits of seeing the product as it is being creative, but also a chance to learn more about the game itself.
Kerrans are an extremely aggressive race by nature and spent much of their early history divided into feral clans mired in bloody civil wars. This weeks discussion will be on the Kerran:
Kerrans are described as a race of dualities. They are a people driven by fierce animal instincts, yet are seekers of spiritual enlightenment. They treasure family and tradition, yet relish exploration and discovery. Life of kerrans is a cyclical. There is a time to fight, a time to relax, a time to explore. Kerran do not choose between peace and war, or savagery and spirituality: they do not accept that one influence must extinguish the other.
They hail from a lush archipelago of the Kerra Isles, which in itself has a wizard spire that during the time of high magic. Which links up with their colony world Shadline.
Once again anyone wanting to bring something they like or dislike to the topic. Can be anything from appearance, biology/physiology, society/culture, architecture, lore, military, religion, or even notable racial characters. It does not matter. In the end the discuss is based on the content given to us by SOE and the lore master himself, Moorgard.

More tid bits and juicy morsels are in waiting. Lurking around the corner. Also if you want to voice your thoughts on the matter not only here links below, but also on the Religion Wrap-Up - Dev Blog Discussion click the link given.
They are known by the elf word, Teir'Dal, a word meaning "elf of the abyss." The Teir'Dal were a caste of warriors within elven society. There, they would work to establish their new society within the plane of Umbra. Here, they were transformed both physically and culturally so that the elves that eventually returned to Norrath. It has been quiet over the last few weeks on due to the holiday. I thought it would be great to have a review discussion outside of the workshops and content, and have this community give its thoughts on the races that have been covered so far. While this will at first will be weekly, it will move to a monthly thing due to content release by SOE coinciding with their workshops.
Now to business. The spectrum of the discussion will be on the Teir'dal. Can be greatly up to anyone wanting to bring something they like or dislike to the topic. Can be anything from appearance, biology/physiology, society/culture, architecture, lore, military, religion, or even notable racial characters. It does not matter. In the end the discuss is based of the available information given by the content given to us by SOE and the lore master himself, Moorgard.
