I was thinking to write a long long post about my life in WOW
from start, and the change of view thru my advance to the top, (I mean high level, I am not a top player and never will be)….
Umm, as you can see I changed my mind,
reasons, it’s kinda boring, like some one bragging how strong they are.
And it is chopped into parts, since I always change from aspect to aspect, from alts to alts
Currently I am on a little project on WOW’s economics
with the knowledge about the game, really helps a lot on this
I was making money on selling off farmed materials,
and hard earn the money…
I had playing a while in the Aution Hall once a while before,
but not for long…
(okay, it’s already some keyword most of the non-WOW player don’t know, my fault, I’ll explain soon)
We had played with leveling, quest, instance, and raid
currently. And Thanks, it had been fun, but gotta tired about it for the moment….
so I am messing with trading now…
because of what mr. Skrooge is doing (the AH Gnome’s work)
This is my little toons representing me for all my trade
of course, She’s a scientist in her Draenei Heart
We do this for science!
Ok, and profit, of course)
So, Let the Research Begin!
On a side note:
A top auctioneer would said that she shouldn’t spend much on her outfit, but to put in investment instead.
leveling to level100 engineering for the goggle use up 6g60s,
the flower 5s
sum up to around 7g
Better than most alternative for a head slot for a lv 10 character in my view,
And the most important part,
it’s fun, and fit her.
(she does throw a lot of dynamics on mob
when she level to lv10 to get those glasses on.
A research psycho sounds nice to me, anyone?)
and the kitten?
I always got one for all my alts,
in case they are bored,
and I always consider that’s the same kitten though
There are many different kind of friend for any given person
Some of them are always more resourceful than others.
You may not hangout much with them,
however, whenever you’ve got question or doubt,
you’ll ask them first
I am considering myself as one of those people
who love to gather different knowledge and tell others when they need it.
Some may think that, it takes so much time to get the knowledge
and just share it with friend is not, umm, fair/profits (I can’t think of a phrase)?
It’s okay for me, because I always like new knowledge,
and most of them interest me
(You may think that me as a knowledge pack rat)
Being resourceful is good, if you enjoys it.
Some people love to live simple and direct, that’s good.
But I know I am not that kind of person and cursed to find out the truth outthere somehow.
I love makes friend with thinkers, as we can talk about many topics in depth.
But I also like makes friend with straight forward people, who can let me take a rest from my unfulfillable desire of knowledge. XD
In The Wow term:
if Knowledge is Magic, I am a Blood Elf
As Said in previous two post,
I seldomly talk about my game life in here
But recently I think that it’s kinda part of me now
(And if anyone notice, I do start posting more about the game here as well)
I had been playing this game for one-two years,
why I mentioned this less,
well, I was thinking about focusing on RL (real life) thoughts in here.
and trying to cut out the little little things,
apparently some random thoughts as well
that’s why i build a second blog on stuff.zekta.com
(As mentioned by BRK on his post on bloggers (Oops it’s Daniel now))
I always want to write an article about world of warcraft
Most of my readers here (as If I’ve got a lot)
had not play the game nor even played online game once,
That’s why i am hestated to put content about it here…
But recently I had some thoughts from there,
and hardly to describe without talking about the game there…
One of the reason is BRK’s leaving, what strike me is the “REAL LIFE” to game relationship (from the event that I really got my toons/charactor show thanks to him, on the real world)
Another reason strike me , is the I dig out a draft of mine on July 2008
with a line… “I always want to write an article about world of warcraft.”
So I guess it’s time for me to do so…
So, here we go, We’ll start talking about it soon.
I had been involving in the online game for about,
say ten years now
and yes, I use the term “involving” not “playing” for a reason
There are some periods times I had not played the game, but by managing one, and developing some of the aspect
I started the whole deal with the game Ultima Online
back then, private server are legal (as is now for Ultima Online)
(We kept hosting them, as soons as people likes it and it’s legal. I don’t like crossing the line)
From a admin pov, one will come up with many thoughts.
A view from high land.
Some question keep appear on my head,
Why they keep playing, and keep spending time on the same thing again and again
Why a virtual item become so value to them, while we gm can just add it with a single command
The bond of a person to his/her character, to his/her friend, and to the society
The Virtual world is a abstracted level of real world,
but with the people with the same urges, desires, needs
It become a good place to learn
especially one have lesser thing to loss and experiment
I learn much there, and even had a project in uni soley on the topic “virtual reality”, online culture is forming in the same extend as online games. technology advanced, but people will remain the same.
Well, behavior will change, but the reasoning, the driving force will remain the same.
Ps. Scarcity , is one of the answer of my questions
It was until I read the book of adam smith to understand that
Ps2. if you read till here, thanks for your time on reading this post.

Learner and Focusing
WARNING, This is a ME post (All about myself, boring as expected)
From years dealing with myself,
I had discovered parts of me is a learner…
Umm, will pursuits to acuire knowledge.
I like puzzle, but rather than solving it by the twisted brain or efforts,
what joy me much is the solution, the secret of taking it apart.
One way or another, some people enjoy solving it all by themselves,
to me, knowing how to solve it is kinda enough…
It doesn’t mean I don’t like to be chealleged or not work out to prove my thoughts.
I ocassionally work on little projects of mine.
however, maintaining it makes me bored,
even if it’s benifits me.
You may said that I am kinda experimental guy rather than a “bussiness man”
(finding something work, rather than working on something profitable is kinda non-efficitent)
It’s kinda hurt business, but that’s me
This raise to the second problem, that,
I don’t stay focus long on one thing for too long…
there are so much interesting thing going on,
and I always come up with new ideas,
and what to get my hand on it..
If… given a project is over, or prove to be working
I’ll move to the next one…
I know sounds like a disadvantage to me,
but if I can get a project running smoothly,
and got a maintainer running it for me, (Partnership, anyone?)
It should be fine,
I bet this will be how my life going to work out…
