For the birds

So, with studying for my Comprehensive exams that start Thursday, I have to limit my blog posting time. I did, however, have time to log in and complete the last 3 daily quests I needed for my Silver Covenant Hippogryph!

Here’s a picture of me (with my T9 bird-head-helm) on my pretty bird mount:


Have a Happy Tuesday everyone!

Also, a word to the wise on computer security. Since mergers have to be completed in the next couple weeks, if you have not yet merged yet, you should spend your Tuesday downtime running scans of anti-keylogger programs to secure your computer before you make the switch. If your computer is infected with a keylogger, then your account is likely to be compromised even after you make the switch. It’s not Blizzard’s fault if your computer is infected by a keylogger, and no amount of tin-foil-hats in the world will make it Blizzard’s fault.  You can also buy authenticator devices I’ve talked about before. If you don’t have an authenticator, you really, really need one! Also, remember that Blizzard will NEVER ask you to e-mail them your password. Also, you can make a NEW e-mail address to register to so that you aren’t using your common e-mail address for your login name. For example, the e-mail I have registered for my blog is NOT the same e-mail address I use for my WOW account, so phishing e-mails I get to my public lissanna70 gmail address are things that I KNOW are fake.

    Good luck on the Comps. I’ve got my thesis defense in eight days, kinda excited and kinda nervous.
    Also, recommendation regarding securing your computer before making the switch. Run a POSIX compliant operating system on your computer and use safe browsing practices such as limiting scripts in your web browser (Firefox with NoScript for instance). Basically, take some time to learn a good operating system and ditch Windows.
