OOC – Back in the saddle again…

May 28th

I know I have been writing a lot of OOC posts of late because my brain has just been wired that way for the moment.  Oh well, I know that it isn’t very interesting to read about someone’s personal stuff, however, I am not overly fond of FB (Face Book) either.   I know that it is really a social network that I do try to avoid quite a bit.

Anyway, to make the long story short, I finally have my gaming computer back up and running and I will have to admit that I am totally amazed at how the World of Warcraft looks with the new video card.  Mind boggling at how long I was just happy to be able to play the game at all.  So, it’s off to the races and back to some gaming in Legion.   I am so far behind everyone else that I know that it really doesn’t matter how I play, so, it’s back to playing for the sake of fun, which is what I pay for.

As I said previously, I did get a new keyboard and mouse for Mother’s Day and only got to play with them for a few hours before we decided to upgrade the computer and three weeks later – a birthday too – the thing is up and going strong.  Now I will be able to finally take some screen shots that take forever to load and look at the map without the game just stopping until I closed – yeah, it was bad.  Processor was great; however, the old video card was kind of bad but doable and I had to make-do until I could afford to do the upgrade.

Now the fun part begins with me trying to play and get used to the new toys.  The keyboard that I got isn’t a big deal other than it is a gaming keyboard that I have never had before.  Big, keys all over the place and lots of buttons that I will eventually figure out the key bindings. Mouse is trippy with all kinds of buttons too that, thankfully, it downloaded the stuff it needed that was compatible with WoW and I’m getting used to that.  LOL, I am going to play off by myself for a while until I get the hang of this new stuff because I have already shot off some stuff by moving the mouse – hehe, was kind of funny but I really didn’t want to kill the little critter either.  I know that I am talking to myself a lot when my character takes off and trots off the side of a mountain because I’m trying to make them stop – I’ll get it figured out.   Just typing in chat is sometimes a challenge because I am still trying to get the feel of the keyboard and key layout – no multitasking for a while. So, if I respond to you with gibberish, sorry, fingers got on the wrong keys.

That old saying of “You can’t teach an old dog some new tricks” that we’ve all heard a thousand times.  Well, I am going to do my best to prove that wrong.
