    Just finished installing all new PC fans

    Things I have left to do:

    Install GPU cooler
    Drill hole through desk for monitor mount (due to drill being in storage will be done manually with a screwdriver )
    Mount monitors
    Buy an ottoman

    Not gonna lie, just bought a new TV (to use as my monitor) just to get that 1080p goodness over 1440x900, bought a cooling pad for my laptop, and a brand new cushion.

    Luckily, in Japan their energy shots are amazing. During the stress tests at 3:00 AM my time, those things kept me jittery till 6 at night.

    Nothing at all. The weekend will be a perfectly normal weekend for me, I just know which game I'll be playing most of.

    Im preparing myself for a bunch of disappointed fans. Just Like with, Warhammer Online, Connan, Aion, SWTOR, Darkfall (I think it was called), LOTR online, and soon Elder Scrolls Online - Just like it was with all of the other "WoW killers". See you guys in a month or two.


    Infracted for baiting/trolling. -- Blood

    Hmm, we are here, at the forums, cos GW2 is not yet out, WoW is, why are you here, if it's so engaging, how do you find the time to troll around, one would think you'd have something interesting to do in-game?

    So for you every new MMO that cames out is a fail comparing to WoW?

    Even Elder Scrolls Online, that no one know "nothing" about...

    Not specifically related to GW2, but I replaced my old computer mouse (I broke it!) with a brand-new Logitech G700.
    Thought about getting the G600 with its button overload but figured the 7 buttons + tiltwheel on the G700 had all the buttons that I'll need.

    Already got mountain o' cola zero, and my nvidia panel tells me I should run GW2 perfectly, except of a minor "Some objects render at a wrong depth". So other than killing my sleep schedule, and doing as much homework as I can so I have a lot of time to play, not much.
    Belief can become reality!

    I have deleted my "old" GW2 install and re-installed it fresh, and I let it update once a day so I have the latest files.

    I have spent the morning watching GW2 lore videos as I never played GW1. Oh, and I will be going to the store today to buy a new keyboard. One of my kids did god-knows-what to my current one and one of the keys no longer works.

    I've weaned myself off of caffeine, which is nice - I always forget how much more clarity of thought I have.

    The rest of week will be spent living very cleanly...lots of water, exercise, martial arts, nutritious food, sleep etc.

    Friday night I'll buy a ton of fruits/veggies/water/fish. I won't go to bed early...but I'll make sure not to over-stimulate myself and go to bed when my body says.

    Then we're a go, go, go :-)
