The nice fanatics people at Blizzard have provided lots of helpful starting tips for WotLK. My favorite feature is the interactive map of Northrend. My hat’s off to their web team. Beautiful and helpful.

Proof of the evil of crack…er…Bejeweled

Woody at GU Comics makes it all clear for us:

Bejeweled in any place will only suck your soul.

Oops…bad computer

So this weekend, I had aspired to performing a number of speech tests. Unfortunatly, my iMac had a conniption and I had to reload the hard drive. Sigh.

I spent about a day and a half reloading tons of stuff. My download folder is gone. Lots of fun stuff there.

My birthday was Sunday, so I managed to get online and visit with some nice folks. We all waited to do a run in the Underbog, but we could not get the group together. Oh well. 🙂

I got an iPod touch 2g 16GB – I’ll be posting and commenting on the wow apps i’ve found soon 🙂

yeah!

Kurn out!

Speech tests so far…

Apple Speakable Items, speech

Well, so far, I’ve had decent success talking to FireFox. This is largely thanks to the LifeHacker article by Adam Pash. If Speakable Items is turned on, it will create a Speakable Items folder for you when you open an application that you want to give voice commands to. My observations show that it can take a minute for the system to notice. (It probably depends on how many apps you have running.)

So far, I have not had success with WOW. I know it’s possible because  Sean Forsgren over at Wowinsider.com has written a fantastic article on it. I don’t know for a fact, but I suspect that I have a problem becuase I am running WOW from an external drive. I will be investigating this.

Crack + Crack = More Crack. Bejeweled + WOW

Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. Bejeweled will be rolled into the next update of WOW. At least that’s what wired says. (And they are responsible journalists – I’m told).

Go see for yourself. We’ll be here keeping the coffee warm.
