…Is This Thing On?

Filed as: Meta | Tags:
May 26

My sincere apologies for the protracted radio silence. A combination of health issues and RL issues conspired to shut me up for several weeks — and then I managed to totally bork my WP database such that I couldn’t make new posts. After some hammering (and some begging of help from an SQL-savvy friend) I think this should finally work again, although let’s face it – if it doesn’t, you won’t see this!

Anyway: I have a lot of catching up to do, so meaty posts might be a little thin on the ground until I’m up to date again, but hello, and I’m back, and I shall attempt to be relevant if there’s anyone out there still reading.

Incidentally, I shall be attempting to catch up with my RSS feeds, but if there’s anything important I missed or should know about, drop me a line in the comments!

(And thankyou to those people who pinged me via email; I’m sorry if I worried anyone!)

WOOT! Good to see you back and typing!!

Oh yes, there is something you need to post on, have you perused MMO-Champion recently? Much dramaz and QQing about GhostCrawlers comments about holy pallies not valuing MP5 as a stat (Which, let’s face it, he is right! Although I wouldnt say that MP5 is undervalued, more that int is OVER valued itemisation-wise and that needs addressing) the contention is about how to resolve that, and it’s getting into the realms of “special”.

Oh I AM pleased you’re back. I inherited a Holy Paladin and have no clue how to play her! You’re one of my guru sites and have been missed. There’s only so many times I can read through what you’ve already written. :)

Hope all is well and will continue to be well for you.

Glad to see you back and hopefully well Siha. I know that myself and many other members of the community have been missing you! However, it’s always important to take the time off when you need it – your health and RL are MUCH more important! <3

Yea, It seems that the good pally blogs are going MIA

Siha is around guys! I will do my best to nag, annoy, complain and generally be a pain in her side until she posts something up :)

I do know that her health is still an issue and is probably impacting her ability to put the due dilligence she usually puts into this blog.
