Apparently someone tripped over the power cord at Blizzard because, with less than 48 hours until the expansion launch, they broke the shit out of the game for over 18 hours. The screaming on the forums was so deafening you’d think they’d pulled the plug on life support. For some of those folks, I guess they kinda did.

Even when the game is up I stay on top of the “Need To Do” stuff (work, eat, bathe, exercise, socialize, marital needs, etc.) but I’ve found that when I can’t play, for whatever reason, I actually take the time to do things on my “Like To Do At Some Point” list.

Yesterday I taught myself the basics of video editing using both iMovie ’08 and iMovie HD (previous version). Granted, the goal was to add titles, transitions, and music to porn clips but hey, you gotta start somewhere. I got so into it (the editing, not the porn) that I was glued to the monitor for about six hours and never even changed out of my work clothes.

In the course of my self-tutorial I discovered that iMovie ’08 sucks balls for anything more than very basic work, and I’d like to know what the hell Apple was smoking when they decided a video editor that does NOT use timeline-based editing would be a good thing. At least they sobered up enough to keep the old version available for free download.

Oh, and I also checked the WoW server status about every 10 minutes. *ducks head*

EDIT: Just noticed that I now have a 3-day credit on my WoW account.
