    Evercrack Again! 2:35 am-

    EverQuest is another one of those things that make me think I’m starting to have some kind of bad karma, technology speaking. I decided to load it up again and have had some big problems.

    First is the fact I had a nice big patch to download. That only took an hour, so I guess it could have been worse. I know it could be worse because at work it took just about two hours with my 28.8 internet connection.

    To make matters worse, once I got the game loaded up and picked my server I ran into the next big stumbling block. After rolling a new character up and trying to get in the game I kept getting kicked back to the desktop. I’m hoping it was because I had the computer on the whole day fighting with Soldier Of Fortune 2. So I hope it was because my GeForce 3 was running to hot.

    And forget SOF2. I just don’t have the hardware to run that bad boy. My video card is ok. But perhaps my AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.2 is just not strong enough to play SOF2 with all settings on high. It doesn’t seem right. And maybe it’s because SOF2 is a bug ridden piece of software. I hope that’s the case.

    So playing EverQuest at work isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be. The 28.8 connection was very unforgiving when it came to passing through the different zones. When I zoned I had enough time to smoke a cigarette and go to the bathroom. I’m not kidding. It took forever.

    I got some minor twinking done to me. My brother in law by a far out proxy gave me some stuff that probably doesn’t really count as twinking. But it will help out my level 3 barbarian warrior. Kraig who gets inducted into the Northern Elite guild tonight at 10:30 est. time was my generous sponsor.

    So now I have accounts to EverQuest and DAoC. I’m not sure if I will play both of them. I am of course finding it hard to give up my level 22 mercenary I’m playing on Dark Age of Camelot. But I don’t want to pay for two games and only play one. So I have a choice to make.

    I’m probably going to go with EverQuest. It’s a lot more fun to be able to play with someone you know. And that’s how it is with EverQuest. Dark Age of Camelot just doesn’t have that for me.
