    Happy: Our first week on Heroic ICC 10 and we made up to blood queen, and I got her token. 2 more to go! I also won a wand but I didn't have anything else hit wise to juggle so i gave it a priesty sub who needs the upgrades :)

    Love/hate: Princes' heroic. I hate it becuase I can't just out right DPS (i been spoiled in raids), but I love it because it reminds me of old BC days when I was considered more utility then actual DPS.

    Happy2: Thanks to you guys and suggesting NPC scan I snagged me a rare spawn. I should of read what the mod does before hand because it scared the hell out of me! Overall, pretty cool mod :)

    Happy3: X-perl working right! My HP/MP bars do not decieve no more!

    A hate of mine last week was Lord Jaraxxus Must Die! This week was it looked like Lord Marrowgar Must Die!
    Groups were looking for tanks or healers for Jaraxxus and I forsee this week it's going to be GS and achievement shit
    I hate it because these are the two wrost choices they could have made for a weekly I know Windrunner is not like other realms but some of them are far worse

    Happy: Down time. I've been playing too much WoW for my own good. Since I've been unemployed I leveled a priest from the 60s to 80, and geared it to a point where I don't really need any more gear. It finally came to a head when one of my friends even said, "go the fuck outside". So, I pry myself away from my computer as much as possible.

    The thing that has me happy is I've been doing a lot of reading. Books on my list are: World War Z, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Dawn of the Dreadful, Children of the Mind, reread Watchmen, maybe some more Ender's Game, and maybe reread my Calvin and Hobbes collection(by far my favorite).

    WoW Happy: I decided to cash in my frost emblems for primordial saronite. I had enough emblems to get 4. Hello 6k gold in one day.

    Hate: I still can't find a jorb.

    Hate: I still can't find a jorb.
    Get your ass street side sugar

    My brother lost his job just after Xmas so it's leaves me the only one with one. All he does it level and play the game when not looking for one and there is not a lot out there
    A job fair last week had over 2000 people show up. a Call center they built had over 5000 people show up for 200 jobs
    It's really sad that I work a job I am not fond of but don't want to leave it because of that

    A happy was I got 100 mounts at last!

    That's the reason I quit mine. I lost all motivation to even wake up in the morning to go to work. Basically, I had been working there for 3 years, been promoted to a supervisor rank without an increase in pay, then got my $0.16 raise to make my pay a whopping $8/hour, then was told I wouldn't be getting any more raises.

    I hear prostitution is a good way to network. I HAVE PEOPLE SKILLS DAMN IT!

    Sounds like you worked at McDonalds or something equally bad.

    If you've got supervisor experience go to best buy or a local grocery store or pretty much anywhere and work as a store manager. That's a $20/hr($41,000/yr) for 1-4 years of experience, at least around here, and the job market around here sucks, but they're always on the lookout for new managers.

    That's actually roughly what a McDonalds store manager makes. Actually a shift manager makes significantly more than $8/hour.

    I worked in a Casino the smoke was a omnipresent fog. I hated the fact on the days we were open all 24 hours some people would stay there the entire time and fight us when we would ask them to leave because we were closing

    But then I hated that job for a lot of reasons. I feel dumb that I stuck around for a girl I was really interested in. I messed that up so bad that I don't even talk to the people I work with now

    Tell me about it. I worked at Taco Bell back before I swore I'd never work in a place like that again.

    It is my personal policy to never complain about skipping or killing any optional bosses and just listening to the person marked as group leader. I assume that is what it is there for. I'm always pleasantly suprised when the tank wants to do the extra bosses in an instance.

    I'd like to see that made into an addon(or a script I suppose), just grab the party's names, slap some random numbers putting yourself at the bottom(or top?) with 0. That alone would greatly heighten my enjoyment. Especially if someone decides to post the meters.

    Ah, I thought Bowen meant there was away to grab the party member names and quickly put them in the macro

    like

    1) &partymember1

    or whatever is used to generate a name from a party member or if you even can.

    The /targetparty command will cycle through groupmembers. So, the macro might look something like this:
    /target [target=player]
    /targetparty
    /p %t: blahblahblah
    /targetparty
    /p %t: blahblahblah
    /targetparty
    /p %t: blahblahblah
    /targetparty
    /p %t: blahblahblah
    /targetparty
    /p %t: AWESOMESHIT
    

    That'll skip over yourself and then go through partymembers saying shit about them. Assuming you have five people in the party, five /targetparty commands will cycle back to yourself.

    I haven't tested this at all and don't even play WoW any more, so no assurances that'll work.

    Another fun option would be to modify Recount to monitor chat and track how often people say "DPS", "meter", "damage", etc.
