The Habitrail

For the people in SoCal, who may be geeks…

I find myself moving up another rank on the geek-o-meter. I am currently in Orange County, and find myself in a dilemma. There is a solution, but I’m gonna try and see if I can find an easier way.

I need to be logged in to FFXI this Sunday at 5pm. Now, there is an internet gaming place in Arcadia, which I know has FFXI installed on their machines, but after calling them, they recommended getting there before noon to make sure I get a slot. Now, it’s not like I couldn’t find something to do for five hours in FFXI, but there might be a better way… not to mention a closer place to do it. (Arcadia is a good 30 miles away from Yorba Linda.)

My mother’s computer will not run FFXI, sadly. My laptop is a Powerbook. I’m not spending $300 for a PS2/Ethernet Adapter/Copy of FFXI/Copy of CoP.

If only I’d not gotten in to WoW (which runs on my laptop and gives me something to do when I’m down here), then my addiction would have made me bring my computer down with me, and all would be easy. Alas. All things considered, driving to Arcadia is probably the safest bet, but if there’s anything I’m missing…

If you were really addicted you would buy your mom a new PC so you can play FF11 ;-).

Black Friday is coming up and all.. probally can get a nice P4 3GHZ for cheap.

Bring a book, and get there way before 5pm.

Even if you get a machine, there is no guarantee that the machine you’re on is on the latest patch. This can be a two hour delay.

I’ve learned this the hard way several times.
