Oh Dear
Hi Larni,

You think you've got problems. Most of the results for "Granny Magda" are me, on one forum or another. Except for this one;

Granny Magda - Toilet Voyeur Oma - Granny - Mature - Old : Movies.

That one's not me. Honest.

Re: Asper your site:
I think I'll join your club. I'm undefined* as well. Although my cousin is sure that it means christmas in japanese.

*that is, by the urban dictionary. In all honesty, it's just a translation.

Well, I kinda knew this would turn up, since it is exactly why I chose the name, but here you go:

Urban Dictionary writes:

A derogatory term for any player in the MMORPG "World of Warcraft" who plays a hunter as their main character and so has developed bad habits and inferior skills for working in groups. Huntards often fail to watch their threat and use their "feign death" ability at the wrong moment, causing party wipes.

yes, I play WoW. :P

Straggler
Main Entry: 1strag·gle
Pronunciation: \ˈstra-gəl\
Function: intransitive verb
Inflected Form(s): strag·gled; strag·gling \-g(ə-)liŋ\
Etymology: Middle English straglen
Date: 15th century
1 : to wander from the direct course or way : rove , stray
2 : to trail off from others of its kind
strag·gler \-g(ə-)lər\ noun One who straggles.

But I particularly like the description of the 'blue straggler' star which is what confirmed my choice when I first thought of it.

Blue Straggler Star
Astronomy
Main
Star of bluish colour (and thus hot) that is found in old star clusters and that appears to be lagging behind most of the other stars in the cluster in its evolution toward a cooler, reddish state. Blue stragglers tend to be strongly concentrated toward the centre of the cluster. Various theories have been proposed to account for the anomalous behaviour—for example, a blue straggler is the coalescence of two stars whose combined mass has altered the evolutionary state of the product—but no one theory accounts for all cases.

I'm not even going to tell you what Urban Dictionary put for my name.

Honestly, I wanted to be "Blue Jay" (my actual nickname), but the space isn't always allowed in file names, E-mail addresses and stuff, so I wrote it as one word.

Perhaps this was a bad idea. :(

(I voted a "thumbs down" for both definitions Urban Dictionary gave, because it made me feel better).

That's kinda hard in wow, the mob gets tagged to you once you've hit it, while others can still kill it, they won't get exp or loot from it. I did ninja loot something from dungeon loot though. :P

I Googled my name and all kinds of stuff came up... its too generic.


I play a MMORPG too.

Age of Conan

Its fucking awesome. I've played both EQ and WOW and I like AoC the best so far.

Their main site, http://www.ageofconan.com/ , isn't very good :mad:

There's a lot of compare/contrast videos on youtube:

I got my girlfriend addicted to WoW. Issues of videogame related strife are now a thing of the past, as she occasionally encourages me to play more.

Don't know if anyone else here is on the Azjol-Nerub US server.

How have you felt about AoC so far, CS? I bought it because of the more mature basis, great premade backstory, more brutal combat, and absolutely beautiful graphics.

I then determined that I didn't particularly like a lot of things about the game engine, and never really found a class I enjoyed much. But I know they've made some very significant changes over the months since release. Is it worth me picking it up again for a second chance?

Oh, and on-topic...my name is shamelessly stolen from a book series I used to like. The character was woefully underdeveloped, but I liked the name, so I've been using it as a handle ever since.
