Has anyone ever told you that you're quite a handsome man? Of course, anyone wearing Spartan getup is.

Go Green! Spartans in the Final Four!

So what are we looking at Chris, a Wall of Force? That's kind of the general idea I'm getting here. Or is this Not For Me To Know?

That is specifically it, a wall of force.

Thanks for the condolences. . All of our games are close, this one was just close the wrong way.

Ah well. There's always next year!

They certainly put on a good showing.

They got a lot farther than they should have, given the injuries they had to put up with. Lucious and Allen showed up in a remarkable way once Lucas went down.

Too bad about Butler. I was really hoping they would do it, partly because they're the home team, partly because they're the underdogs, partly because I hate Duke and didn't want coach K to win another National Championship. But mostly because, had they won, it would have completely revived my battered and broken EvenFlo bracket and I would have risen, like a fiery, phoenixy Jesus Christ from the bottom of the rankings to number one, which would bestow upon me not only $180, but eternal bragging rights.

As it is, I placed in the number two spot, out of sixty, and won $75, and that ain't hay. The bragging rights aren't quite as good, but they're pretty damn close. My bracket was atrocious after the first couple of weeks.

Thanks Doom.

Originally Malak had an animal companion, a falcon named Jess (pun intended)! I couldn't remember if I'd moved that name to a bow or not.

He has two bows, Jess and Bessie I think. Jess should be sacred/holy/metalline, and Bessie should be wounding/greater dispelling/shattermantle.....

Can't get to my record sheets right now, sadly.

Got the Red Ring of Death right in the middle of my Dragon Age tonight. Looks like my extended warranty expired December 29th 2009, so I think I know what my bracket winnings are going to.

Oh no!!! That sucks Doom! Warranties are made to expire just before the products do, too.

It goes on an Xbox 360, and looks like this:


Those red lights are supposed to be green indicator lights that show what controller is currently turned on. When they appear like so, it typically means you have hardware failure, which, I understand, is often the result of using lead-free solder that becomes brittle when exposed to high heat, like the inside of a game console. It's supposedly an easy fix, but if you try, then Microsoft won't touch it should you need to send it in.

Well since the warranty is over, sounds like it's time to get the old solder gun out of the closet.

If I'm lucky, it's just dust and cat hair.

Ah, who am I kidding? I spent all my luck during March Madness.

Cat hair: Negative
Cat urine: Affirmative

There's some corrosion of the circuit board below the power switch under the main face plate, and there's dried urine all over the inside of the box. When I explained to my roommate the reason his cat needed to be re-homed, he said he'd be willing to pay for a new Xbox, should it be required. Looks like he gets to keep his promise.

That is lame. It's good that your roomie is being good about picking up a replacement, though. Cat must not have liked the game you were playing. Did you buy Leliana the cute little nug or something?

I'm guessing we're currently stymied by real life intrusions?

Well, Mizuki is waiting to hear Aros' reaction. Not because it'll change what she does so much as she's just curious.

You mean this reaction?
Feeling Malak's hand on my shoulder, I halt where I am. Why can you not leave this place? And who are you, that you should know so much about it?

Yeah. I'm not sure if I hear it or not. Chris' post confused me. Course I wasn't any more clear above. >.<

*amused chuckling*

So in this game, which spans thousands of miles between players, the binding point of confusion is between the two who see each other on a daily basis, face-to-face. :p
