  1. Winter sucks.

    Because I get tired so much earlier than usual. I hate that! I'm falling asleep before 11pm, and that's just weird for me. I'm not enjoying it one bit. Time I'd usually spend going online and playing FFXIV or chatting with people has lately been spent watching TV instead. I'm barely remembering to have dinner. This never happened in NZ, it's just the Scottish winter... it gets dark so early and having to close your windows to keep the heat in also means you get a real lack of fresh air circulating ...
  2. Have you played? Do you enjoy it?

    This is a (long, now that I finished!) rant about trolling! And also perhaps people who are just easily frustrated by a video game and like to talk about it a lot.

    Obviously (for some, not all - but yeah, note the category this blog is in!), this stems from my recent reading of / posting in a few forums throughout the web.

    Basically, I'm wondering how many people have a purpose in going to a forum to slate a game they don't like. I can understand people who do like ...
  3. Only 700gil, 1400gil for a +1!

    I think I must have sold about 80-100 bronze needles by now. Barack Obama has bought a bronze needle +1 from me. Hell to the yes.
    Final Fantasy XIV
  4. Something that passed me by in late August.

    I've now been registered at EoFF for over ten years. Go me? Probably actively posting for just as long, too. I think I've only taken one month off, so yeah... crazy.
  5. Server Maintenance!

    Which means I get away from FFXIV for a little bit. Well, three hours, anyway. Which is great because something I want to watch is on TV in half an hour. Anyway. Final Fantasy XIV!

    My first impressions were pretty much what I expected - the only major changes from the open beta are that the story has been expanded, you can go to more areas (presumably - I can't verify this as I've only played for a day so far, I'm still too weak to travel that far) and that - most important ...
    Final Fantasy XIV
  6. This time tomorrow, hopefully I'll be playing FFXIV.

    It's more than likely that I'll still be downloading and installing patches while looking into the various vB4 issues, but hey, a guy can hope! I'm really excited about getting the game, I gotta say. I enjoyed the beta a lot, but I'd stopped playing after I got to about level 10 with my various classes and did the second storyline mission... There was no real point in continuing for me as I knew that it would be leveling etc. just to have it all wiped once the beta closed. But yeah. Soon! Hopefully ...
  7. Me! Meeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    1) First person you become good friends with on EoFF, to your recollection.
    2) Two members you PM with the most.
    3) The third word in your most recent post.
    4) Four banned members (OFF THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD, NO CHEATING):
    5) Five people you'd like to have a meet-up with.

    Robb is the first person at EoFF I became good friends with. I don't know who I PM with the most as it changes over time - the top two overall, though, are smittenkitten and Jess (not Rye, ...
  8. One day later...

    Search Index count: 904750 and counting at 250 a pop. UARGH.

    So far, so good. The expected grumbles, the expected conflicting interests, and definitely the expected slow but steady progress. Actually, that's a bit unfair - thanks to many people, this has been progressing pretty quickly. Before we went live, Marshall Banana in particular was immense for a good few months where she almost (almost! Not gonna forget the efforts of rubah/Rantz/etc) single-handedly got the styles looking ...
  9. vB4 almost ready!

    Just a lot of red x's and a bit of trouble with PM's spotted so far, but we're getting there.

    Yes, this is just a test and excuse to get in first blog entry
