adalger: Earthrise as seen from the moon, captured on camera by the crew of Apollo 16 (Default)

As of last night, I am the proud rider of a Drake of the North Wind. This more than makes up for 1) losing the chaos orb and 2) no volatile air at all dropping for me in VP.

Heroic Vortex Pinnacle. I am fail at avoiding Static Cling. The PUG tank was waaaaay too fast, had no eye for caster mana, wouldn't even wait for healer. When the mount dropped, and I won (with a roll of 91 to someone else's 91 also), there was some gnashing of teeth. The healer was the other 91, and stopped moving while everyone else ran up the ramp; I stopped and waited for the healer, because that's what you do, and the tank sure wasn't doing it. Didn't matter that healer's reason was to make screen-caps and whinge to Blizz about being cheated on the tie roll. (What did this player expect, that for a tie roll Blizz should duplicate the mount and award two? I thought it was a settled fact and everyone knew about the internal tie-breaker roll that isn't shown.)

I rolled on the Chaos Orb at the end anyway, because that's really why I was on my third random H of the night. I have the dreamcloth pattern but not the 5 orbs, and I'm trying to get them. As mentioned above, I lost that roll. Who won?

The healer. Who accepted my 'grats on the orb with "Thanks. And grats on drake. :)"

I so desperately want to find a group of four (maybe only three) other people who meet certain conditions:

* They enjoy World of Warcraft
* They don't think you have to be at max level to enjoy just playing
* They can be counted on to show up once a week at the same time
* They think teamwork is cool

I was thinking it was time to set up some key bindings so I don't have to click the fiddly little totem buttons when I'm playing a shaman. But first, some back story.

The default behavior is for Shift-1 through Shift-0 and Ctrl-1 through Ctrl-0 to access pet bars and special bars (e.g., pally auras, warrior stances, druid forms). This conflicts with using them as modifiers on macros on your regular action bars, so I rebound mine to Shift-F1 through Shift-F10 and Ctrl-F1 through Ctrl-F10. Since I never used the F-keys to target party members, I rebound F1 through F6 to select the six pages of action bars.

All of this made it seem reasonable and logical to use Alt-F* for the totems. I began to bind.

Earth. *click* Alt-F1. Bound. :)
Fire. *click* Alt-F2. Bound. :)
Air. *click* Alt-F3. Bound. :)
Water. *click*

What happens, in Windows, when you press Alt-F4?

Anyone?

And SHOULDN'T I HAVE REALIZED THIS BECAUSE THAT'S HOW I SHUT DOWN MY ACTIVE PROGRAMS AT THE END OF THE DAY EVERY DAY AT WORK? Not to mention the trade-trolls who answer all the noob "how do I" questions with that.
