Lets resurrect the one wich is already dead since …

I’m talking about UltimaOnline in the clawed hands of Electronic Arts. In a way i am quite happy , because Uo is and will remain my favorite MMORPG. Well now EA is pulling out their most expensive investment in Uo: Kingdom reborn.

Apparently they revamped the client and the game arts to make it more appealing to the players.

Well maybe it will give a second wind to Uo, maybe not, that depend how badly they screw up i guess.

They will screw up anyway, it’s EA after all.

The big question i am wondering is wich of the different server emulators, POL, Run/SunUO , LOnewolf … will have the guts to redo the reverse engineering of the client… And basically stay head to head with the current and new Uo.

Time will tell…

The flying (not spagetti) monster

Tomorrow i am taking a plane for the first ime in 10 years and i am dead scared.

You think i am afraid to fly? you are wrong, dead wrong.

I am afraid of everything ELSE that is linked to this flight.

Lets see:

2pm :in theory i should leave home at this point

3pm : In theory again after one tramway and the airport bus i SHOULD be at the airport.

3pm to 5pm : I gave myself two hours to do the following:

  • Checkin in my luggage (weight 21kg when the flight is limited to 20kg so lets see if i will have to pay or if their scale suck as much as mine)
  • Taking my tickets (i got one of these weird “print me” tickets that i need to exchange when i arrive)
  • Going to the security screening (i am transporting a crapload of metallic things aswell as laptop and various other electronic things.
  • Find my plane (first time i set foot in this airport)

5.30pm : take off.

And no it isn’t finished…

6:35pm : landing to the transit airport

6:35 to 9.05pm: nothing nada niet, maybe count the steps of the airport stairs…

9.05 pm: another embarkment — take off

11:05 pm: landing to my final destination, several thing to do:

  • find luggage
  • find my friend and get the ffff away from this.
  • 3 hours of bus til being able to hit the ground.

Lets do the math:

  • time airborne : 1.05+ 2.30 = 3.35 hours.
  • total time: 9 hours.


And i can see like 10 points where it can simply fuckup with various levels of consequences.
