Well, I was planning to get back into World of Warcraft in the near future, as soon as I started earning some money from a job. I started doing the updater to make sure I was all up to date and would only have to buy Mists of Pandaria and then activate it, but I kept getting an error message.
Now, as usual, when I get an error message, I fire up my trusty web browser and hit Google with the exact text of the message. This has always given me good results, linking to forums and even the software support pages with other people having the same problem, and super smart nerds telling them what to do to fix it. (Yes, I’m also a nerd. Shut up.)
This time, it was talking about the launcher having compatibility issues with the version of WoW and if you didn’t update in a timely manner (which I didn’t, having quit WoW when I was short on money because I was totally not addicted. Shut up.)… um… oh… if you didn’t update in a timely manner, you couldn’t update after a certain version without performing some software gymnastics. I tried some of the solutions they offered, but none worked. Kept digging and finally discovered that since my MacOS has not been updated past 10.6 yet (because once you do that, you can’t run Neverwinter Nights), I can’t update and run WoW.
Now, once I update my MacOS, I’ll have to create a new partition for Windows, and I have and old version of Windows XP hanging around. That’s all I need to run Neverwinter Nights anyway. It’s not like I’d ever use Windows for anything else. So, the current problem is that since I’m sharing my computer with Anne until we can fix hers, I can’t create another partition, since we don’t have the room on the hard drive.
So… my grand re-entry into WoW is once again delayed. I’m going to blame Windows for this because, hey, why not?
