First I fall off the bridge across to Spirit Rise in Thunderbluff.

And then I fall off the Internet while doing the corpse run.

The ADSL modem decided that that was the moment to fry its brain. It's still working as a switch, but it's gone away both on its configured port, and on its default port. (And I tried a hard reset.) So it's time to get a replacement. (It's not the first time I've seen one do this: its predecessor managed the same trick.)

did the Org run this morning, but not tried the TB one - had to go and do other things. Sorry you fell off in such a bad place though

Really annoying, because I'd been ganked at the top of the lift. But I rezzed behind a tent, way out of sight of any Hordies, bandaged myself, remounted my bear, and had charged through the gatehouse for the bridge. Unfortunately, I was slightly mis-aligned, and managed to ride up the side rail and over by the half-way across point.

Once we have the Internet back again, I'll be able to restart it. (I suspect I'm too far below the bridge to rez on it.)

Tonight I get the druid finished on the fires and start working on the mage, if only for the huge pile of cash it generates (about 1000g for each complete sweep)

This truly is a language I do not speak.

ganked ... rezzed ... Hordies

Indeed. And even when I recognise the words, and the grammar is correct, the images conjured byt them are... disturbing:

remounted my bear

Let's see:

ganked = set upon by the Opposing Faction and killed
rezzed = resurrected
Hordies = Members of The Horde i.e the Opposing Faction

As for remounting her bear (the character in question is female), well, yes, I know what you mean :-)

Well, you're multilingually fluent already, so don't feel ashamed.

(And that goes for a certain Swede too.)
