WoW: The Movie

I took a trip down memory lane and watched Exploration: The Movie. It made me want to make my own video in World of Warcraft. I got the screencapping software, now I want inspiration. [more inside]

What are some great "wow" gifts for an almost 5-year-old?

I usually buy my daughter one larger gift each Christmas, one that we can set up as the big surprise Christmas morning. The challenge is that our house is fairly small so whatever we buy should be able to fold up and be put away, either up on a shelf or in a closet. [more inside]

How do I check if a World of Warcraft CD key has been used?

I recently purchased a used World of Warcraft Collector's Edition to sell. I'd like to know if the CD keys have been used (especially the one for the special companions), since that effects the value. Is there any way to check that? I don't have a WoW account.

Please help us be better at collaborative gaming

My partner and I are playing Borderlands 2 and World of Warcraft (WoW) together, which is great fun, but we are sort of terrible at combat. He's never done collaborative gaming (but has played a lot of Borderlands) and I haven't played games in years (but I used to play a lot of WoW). [more inside]

Wow & flutter: is it the tapes or the tape deck?

Dog training strategies for chewing, counter-surfing, and piano-raiding?

Our dog, a two-year-old rescued black lab mix has two bad habits which we'd like to train her out of: she chews on things that aren't hers, and she counter-surfs with a vengeance. In both cases the worst behavior happens in rooms we're not in, and it can happen quickly. Too often the damage is done before we have chance to startle her away from the scene of the crime. I'd love to know what training techniques have worked for others in similar situations. [more inside]

Silent Science Videos To Entertain Teens?

Looking for videos to create a youtube playlist to entertain a group of science-minded teenagers for about 30 min that are largely visual. Sound is fine but the bulk shouldn't be someone talking to the class like an instructor - visualizations are best - ideally they should look really, really cool. Class is engineering focused, but chemistry, robotics, wobbly bridges, comp-sci, biology, are all welcome. [more inside]

O hai. I'm ur noobtank. I'm here to wipe your group.

I just started playing World of Warcraft again after two years. In short: I'm a total noob again and I'm starting to tank heroic dungeons and it is... messy. Noxxic seems pretty good for basic gear/stat information, and the in-game Dungeon Guides are nice, but they're really terrible for reading on the fly and don't actually include popular strategies. Is there a good place where I can learn how to tank Cataclysm Heroics or am I fated to drag poor strangers along on my very painful learning curve? I don't love sifting through dozens of YouTube videos, but videos would be helpful.

Images of Love in World of Warcraft

As a handmade gift for some folks who met in World of Warcraft, fell in love, and got married, I would like to use an image that says both A) Love, and B) WoW. I found info on Love Tokens and "Love is in the Air" items (and a pretty badass-looking plaque), but I don't play the game, so I worry that an item that visually seems to say "Love" may also have deleterious side-effects or something. I like the non-obviousness of the Lovely Charm Collector's Kit, but again, I'm way over my head. WoW players, what think you?

Advice on WoW files not copying into external drive?

I plan to return to playing World of Warcraft. However, I need to keep the game on an external hard disk, or at least temporarily transfer it from the computer's drive to that disk frequently. When I played before, the files (install files or the installed game) would not copy to the external drive, although I have never had any such problems with a non-WoW file. I am thinking of getting an install CD for the game, so that instead of transferring from the computer to the external drive, I can just erase and reinstall. Problem is, I would need to reinstall all patches each time I did that. Does anyone have any ideas about why the external disk doesn't like WoW or how I can get around this?

World of Warcraft: Want to BUY the most bad ass account possible!

Yes I know it is totally lame to buy a WOW account. Don't Care. I want to buy the most bad ass World of Warcraft character possible. Its a present to myself for finishing a 10 year long project. Anyway, how do I go about doing this, how do I evaluate the bad ass-ness of the account? I'm willing to spend thousands of dollars. Yes yes yes, I know it is lame. Whatever. WOW looks pretty cool and I'd like to get into it no matter how lame.
