    Default GAAAAH, apology number two, today sucks for me

    I have found out something about my computer I didn't know before - it has a button that turns off the internet. Found it, and DCd at the start of E6 VON. The party had 3 FVS, so I hope it finished, took me half an hour of restarting and verifying my wireless before my 10 year old says - "what about this button?" (she apparently had already found it....)

    Time to log for the day, I think... ugh

    Okay maybe you don't know how things work on Khyber. I will say it again. We do not apologies! Especially when it is our fault.

    This is what you should have said.
    Lost Internet connection just before saving a bunch of gimps in E Von6. Poor bastards probably wiped without me. Oh well.
    Awww, that's so sweet....oooh something shiney....look an airship....Gak! There's a halfing chasing me!

    I have a button on my keyboard, not a laptop mind you but a keyboard, that turns off my computer with no prompt. I also have one that puts it in sleep mode and bugs DDO out.

    I am quite annoyed whenever I accidentally hit either. Wiped a hox as the bard and stone runner one time because I hit the sleep key and couldn't move after that.

    Worse thing is when you hit the [X] while in window mode when you mean to close some other window or minimize.

    URGH!! I used to have a keyboard like that. I would bet any amount that it was designed by someone who didn't have cats.

    Anyway. I fixed the sleep and reboot keys with a fork: stick the prongs under the key, press down on the handle and...*pop!* there goes the offending key

    The Windows key is another annoying one that usually immediately flies off any keyboard I acquire.

    Lol. My cat has done that to me as well, not by hitting the keyboard but by turning off my power stip.

    I was one of the 3 FvS in that group. Even with 1 healer per platform, we did not have enough DPS on platform 1 (In fact, only 2 people there) and the other 2 FvS had to drink sev. pots. We had to redo djiins after 1 fail, and then all those in platform 1 died.

    We failed, so no need to worry about leaving us. A fourth healer would not have changed anything there :P
    DCing happens and real life > video games, and you shouldn't care about those that would hate you for it.
    Besides, the leader dismissed you right after you DCed.

    You can disable these, I did for similar reasons.

    Yeah...I've done this one a few times sadly. As soon as you click it, there is that split second where everything stops before closing and you say "****!".

    And thus Gornn let loose Hordo, not to save the party, but so the party may be wiped by his hand.

    So sayeth we all.

    Now if you hear a nuclear control expert say "Opsay, where is the nearest bomb shelter?", then we Khyberians shall all be worried.
