About Me

nessI have been gaming since I got my first computer, age 8. An Apple IIe.  Since then my love affair with computers, technology, gaming and anything with an electronic pulse has been overwhelming.

I began attending computer programming courses when I was just 10 years old.

At 23 I set out overseas with my shiny new MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) on a quest for adventure, only to fall in love and fling that thing called a career out the window (or so I thought).

Later, my passion for creativity and computers came to the forefront again, and I am now an independent creative with a graphic design business, various internet properties and I do some design work for this bunch of guys called Method, perhaps you’ve heard of them?

I have been blogging on various platforms since 2004 and love the mediums ability to put great content out there at the touch of a button.

About the site

This is a fan site, documenting the fun that I have playing in the awesome Blizzard Universe. I am in awe of the incredible imagination, design and development work of Blizzard Entertainment. I am not in anyway affiliated with Blizzard, am not compensated by them, do not claim any of their works as my own, and simply wish to share the fun and brilliance of the best MMORPG of all time, as well as their other games.

What made me decide to try World of Warcraft

It was the Chuck Norris advertisements  on television that eventually convinced me to try out World of Warcraft.

Yes, really.

I’ve always been a fan of strategy games e.g. Age of Empires I, II and III, Starcraft etc, and more than a few Christmases’ ago I was given Warcraft III.  I have never really been a fan of FPS (first person shooter) games, but I had enjoyed the Tomb Raider series on Playstation, and from the advertisement, the style of game play looked similar, in that you control one persons movements.

When the ads on TV offered ‘play for free to Level 20’ and I had some free time, I thought, “Why not?” and tried it out.

You can guess how things went from there 😉
