April in Review

The Site April is usually a big month for page views.  The Blizzard April Fools post usually gives me a boost in search engine traffic for a day or two. August generally sees a boost in page views as well due to Blaugust.  So turning that into Blapril ought to have been a double whammy. […]

Screecher Spirits and Feralas

Technically I can make the claim that the instance group got together this past weekend.  We were all logged into WoW Classic at the same time for a stretch and shared some information and made some plans.  But it was otherwise more an afternoon of parallel play than a group effort. The plan was small.  […]

Down Around Gadgetzan and Steamwheedle

Previously our run up to Zul’Farrak moved from the Hinterlands to Booty Bay.  This past weekend we got a bit closer to the dungeon as the group took the boat across from the Eastern Kingdoms to Kalimdor and flew on down to Tanaris. Tanaris is where Zul’Farrak is located, so we were at least moving […]

An Interlude in Booty Bay

After our run through The Altar of Zul and Jintha’alor the previous week it felt like we needed a level or two across the group before we should consider taking on Zul’Farrak. Left with some time to consider this, I did a bit of scouting and decided that Booty Bay might be the opportunity for […]

March in Review

The Site What a month.  There was nothing much of note new on the site, but gaming life and blogging time and all of that was subject to some changes as the COVID-19 pandemic confined so many of us to home.  Fortunately my job is doable from home, but being there at my desk all […]

Archaedas in the Foyer

The past weekend found us all at home.  Since we all live in locales that were under community lockdown guidelines… “shelter in place” they call it… thanks to COVID-19, we seemed to have ample opportunity to play.  Nobody had any reservations for dinner, a show to see, or a sporting event to attend certainly. So […]

February in Review

The Site With Firefox and (finally) Chrome trying to make the web safer, both browsers are now less tolerant of potential security risks, flagging sites as containing questionable content much more aggressively.  And The Flag Counter widget, which I have been running for almost a decade in my side bar, apparently started causing the site […]
