Happy to report that I am done with slabs for now and will be taking a short break before I begin trying to get Kara attuned. Will keep you posted. If anyone has any tips for getting attuned quickly make sure to shoot them my way.
Special thanks to those who have emailed me with tips and tricks for slabs, I used many of them with great success!
(did i mention that i love mass dispell and shadowfiend?)
I finally managed to get in a decent PUG for slabs. We clear up to the Black Heart the Inciter then a couple of guys have to go :( Okay, so they agree to help finish off the inciter before they go and I am excited because I need an item he has for a quest. We take him down and this wand drops. I'm so excited I forget to loot the mob and we all hearth. ARRRRRRRGH!
Anyone doing more slab runs? :)
I just got off a customer call where we talked about them delivering in-house training on the new 3.0 Framework stuff. Being that im the n00b at MS, I didn't know about .NET University.
This site rocks! If you want to teach or learn about these new technologies, you aboslutely have to check out this site. I'm a teacher at heart and one of the things that is the best way to retain knowlege is to teach that knowledge to someone else. Seriously. Give it a try and you'll see what I mean.
PLUS ms will help you formalize the training and set up a registration site for you so you just have to deliver the content (and we'll even help with that too)!
If you haven't come across this yet you will at some point. There is a known issue with Vista and activation. You can get the details for common errors at this KB article, but the steps are pretty straightforward:
1) Go to Control Panel...System and Maintainence...System
2) Scroll to the bottom of the screen
3) Click on Change Product Key
4) Type in your key
5) Click Next and follow the rest of the steps in the wizard
That's it! Soon you'll be enjoying Vista and be activated :)

Okay, so I bit the bullet and installed WOW on Vista last night. I am going to install the patches tonight and see how it works. If anyone has had issues, lemme know. BTW, feel free to catch up with me on Eredar (70 NE Priest -- SQLVarChar). I don't play as often as I used to but still try to get in a couple of instance runs on weekends.
Very cool article in Wired on Microsoft and openess. This is very near and dear to my heart because I am part of the evangelism group that is tasked with getting the word out about stuff at MS. I just mentioned to my manager the other day that I was expecting to have a chip inserted into my brain when I joined MS to make me "drink the cool aid". I was suprised and scared when I found out how much freedom we have to communicate with the world. With sites like Channel 9 and others we really do want to educate and inform you about all kinds of stuff.
Just saw this on Somasegar's WebLog and wanted to pass it on if you haven't seen it yet.
