The system is down -update


Life is conspiring against my blogging an gaming right now. Between having to work late most nights for the last fortnight and home maintenance problems i'm pretty hectic right now.

Should be good after this weekend though, Monday the 2nd of July is when a lot of stuff is due. Craziness should subside shortly after.

I've also purchased a brand new PC to replace the old one that was dying. I've resurrected the old one, but in doing so I had to reformat everything and buy new parts and a new OS. I've handed that one on to my partner to replace her 6 year old machine. Cue sounds of Fallout 3 and an angry woman cursing out super mutants. 

On the bright side, it looks like "A noobs guide to warmachine" has been added to Battle College, which is awesome. I didn't know that they had a newbie zone before but its in there.

Noobs guide is up to about 6000 direct click throughs and is about 75% of the traffic for the blog, so someone is reading them. To compare, and standard post gets about 30-120 views. The faction section for a Noobs guide is up to 2200 by itself. I'm pretty awed at how well received those posts have been.

So again, more blogging in the future, I haven't abandoned the hobby, i'm just a bit swamped right now.

Original Post

My computer died a horrible death about two weeks ago.... but like many peoples personal saviour after 3 days there was a resurrection of sorts.

I've had to format the operating system, buy and install windows 7, replace the RAM and reinstall all my applications.

As a result I have been unable to make any decent updates for a while.

On the bright side, my PC was showing signs of failure for a while so I backed up everything. HUZZAH!

Anyway, more blogging in the near future, not so much right now.


  1. I think this is all an elaborate setup to avoid crushing me on Tuesday. I will get the email 'sorry Sean, I cant come and crush you because my computer has died'. I can see through your feeble plans...

    1. Dont need a PC to crush you like bug

      However, I do need one to post photos

    2. Of me crushing you LIKE BUG

  2. Lol. Last night was one of the best games I have had in years! It had drama, it had action, it had incompetance (on my part), it had dice fail (on both parts), it had killing one's own battle engine for the greater good. Such crazy fun. I was still giggling about it when I went to bed and babbled on about it to my long suffering and bored-to-tears wife. Good times.

    1. It was an epic game, that is for sure. I realyl need to start taking a camera and writing these things up again
