ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Friday. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing like the feeling of sitting on a patio with a cold beer on a hot sunny day with a cool breeze. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll relive that feeling later after I finish my banana, cherry, coke flavoured Slurpee (I hate spoon straws).
This upcoming weekend, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be engaging the boss that is Iron Council normal hard mode. Will see if I can create a movie of it. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been able to record via Fraps before but I lack the know-how to resize the video entirely.
Speaking of news, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m busy moving blogs this weekend. Plus Heal and No Stock UI will be moving servers in addition to this blog. By the way, not sure if anyone noticed, but I inserted a Google Reader widget for additional stuff to read. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll share stuff that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve written elsewhere in addition to cool stuff I come across in my Google reader.
So whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new this week?
World of Warcraft
Wordy WarriorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s back and is now self hosted. I was starting to wonder what had happened.
LenelieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Voice voices her WoW pet peeves. One of which includes countermanding raid leader instructions by a non-leader. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rather frustrating when I see it during various pickup raids. Let the leaders do their job. If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not satisfied with it, leave and form your own. The way I see it, when I join a pickup raid, I place myself at the mercy of their leaders and trust that they will do the right thing. NothingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to stop me from leaving if I’m not satisfied with the way things are being handled.
Blogging and writing
Write to Done: Five Tips on Writing a Fantastic About Page Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Solid post. I stumble across new blogs all the time. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m loving what IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m reading. But I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know who is writing it. DoesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hurt to toss in your email or a contact page so readers can send in some fan mail to boot.
Psyblog: When Groups are Bad for Productivity Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Social loafing. The idea that the more people there are involved in a group, the less effort being exerted by individuals within the group. Does it sound like your raid? Give it a read!
