As always it is a treat to view into the life of Paul, Jewel and BBD. I have had such terrible luck lately that I have been unable to get on line regularly. I suppose it started last year and continues, as if I am marked red and have a magnetic charm to pull bad luck toward me, as I have ever witnessed. Lately it was computers, I assembled a new full tower and it has all the latest and greatest components that I could afford, but the video card failed and everyone was red color. I tried to contact the vendor for an RMA and it took two weeks for a response. All this adds to the repair time and once you mail it away, it will be weeks for a replacement arrives. Then my brand new modem/router started cycling on/off and it was worthless. I had to call my Internet provider company (IPC) 8 times and then Netlink 34 times trying to get it fixed , update the software or replaced. Did I mention I live in a small community and we have poor phone reception and I had to purchase a booster for cell and home phone. It drove me crazy losing and dropping calls, I finally went to see the manager where I bought it and told them I wanted to throw it threw the storefront window. I was told when I bought it that it was the one that I needed to use. She offered to replace it , but didn’t have the approved model as listed by my IPC and the one I had was not an approved model either. Anyway she put 200 dollars on a debit card and I went across the street and bought a nice router and used the modem given by the IPC. I can now remove the 100ft Internet cable for my wife’s pc as it was unsightly.
It certainly a refreshing change to see someone having a wonderful day in the snow while the BBD does all the leg work of running around.
Sorry I missed the final days of VOW, I will miss it forever. Thank you for your service, I enjoyed playing on your server.
