I decided to close this blog as well.

Syp had me thinking, it’s time to close this blog as well, start a new chapter of my blogging.

My New Blog.

Thanks for all the good times, goodbye


A sign of things to come?

Posted in Warhammer- Online with tags on March 31, 2009 by theerivs

Back in the ancient days they would look for signs, and omens everywhere. A crow flew over a dead cow, that was probably a bad sign. Today I saw a dog wagging it’s tail while walking backwards, might of been a good sign. Seems like everyone that plays WAR is looking for signs, whether good or bad.

When I took up blogging for WAR there is a short list of people who inspired me, and one of them was Syp from Waaagh. Well he closed the doors on the blog a few days ago. I can’t say that I’m a little bit saddened by this.  A dedicated WAR blogger, has moved on sort of. Sure he’ll still blog about WAR a bit from his new blog Bio-Break .

It’s like when your favorite lead singer from a band leaves to pursue a solo career, sure the music will most likely be good, but just not the same. There’s nostalgia there, the songs you have associated with your memories won’t be the same knowing the band is no more.

I wish Syp the best of luck with his new blog, he will go on to bigger and better things. I just can’t help shake the feeling though that this is a bad sign.

I will have to check the goat entrails to be sure though.

More Stickiness

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on March 30, 2009 by theerivs

Looks like over at Echoes of Nonsense,  I was given another Sticky Keyboard

Well since I already fulfilled the original requirements, I won’t rehash that stuff, but since I’m so modest,  I will boast accordingly. Ardy wants to Hammerstaff me, must be code in Order for something dirty. I can’t turn this charm off, and it’s the sexy purple I usually wear. The guys LOVE it.

Ardua is one of the reasons I’m around blogging now, his insights, and posts are purely awesome, but his support of the WAR community is legendary, plus I gotta say his blogroll is pretty long, and that’s hawt.

The Sticky Keyboard Award

Posted in Warhammer- Online with tags on March 29, 2009 by theerivs

Well Regis over at Wizards and Wenches gave me the dubious honor of a Sticky Keyboard Award.  I am truly touched even though Regis thinks I’m dirty, which I am, and the blogroll is incredibly huge. I can’t help some blogroll’s are just big, if that isn’t boasting I don’t know what is.  I’m still in amazement that someone’s blog is named Wizards and Wenches, and the site is devoid of both. Tell you the truth, I happened upon his website to see the aforementioned Wenches, thus proving that I am in fact dirty.  Well he failed me in that department.

The award comes with stipulations…. 

  1. When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
  2. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
  3. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!


So pass it on I shall…..

1. Cry me a RvR –  Well with all the green if I sneezed on my monitor would anyone know?  A female playing a healer on my server on the destruction side, if that doesn’t scream masochist I don’t know what does.

2. Incoming Pull – There’s only one person with less luck then me when it comes to gear. That’s this guy. Plus all the pictures and videos, even someone with a 3rd grade reading skill like me can enjoy his blog.

3. Shadow War –  Shadow been around for awhile, and his pictures are a little more disturbing then Incomings. Like he had an old dude scratching his back. It just gives me the heebie jeebies, and I worry about him.

4. The Captain’s Blog –  I love how he conned his Significant Other to actually think his obsession is healthy, just kidding.  I do however an old joke always pops in my head when I read his blog.  I was at a Halloween party last year. I saw a pirate with a steering wheel on his crotch. So being a little tipsy I asked him, “Excuse me but what’s with the steering wheel?”  The pirate replied, “Arrrrr it’s driving me nuts”

5.  Bootae’s Bloody Blog –  This guy knows his Chosen, and his banners scare the hell out of me. Wanted me to Pimp my Chosen, but being that I have a Trendy Title I really want to out do every one so I’m kind of waiting for that color scheme that screams AWESOME!.

6.  Gaarawarr Gabs – Good blog, Dirty Dwarf. I got some space for you in my pants, my good dwarven friend.

7. Starbreaker –  Another Dwarf Scumbag. He kind of wins cause his actual blog title takes 3 days to type. Starbreaker’s adventures in the great beyond of marshmellow land and on and on, etc…etc.  It’s a good blog though.


The 10 things you may or may not  know about me.

1. My nickname in real life is River. Pretty much all my toons follow the same naming convention with “Riv” in it somehow. I once had to tell a girl I was dating and took to a wedding if someone was talking about Chris, that ‘s probably me. She was wondering when I was going to tell her my real name.

2. I like whiskey, alot. me on it.  I chugged a bottle of Early Times Whiskey like John Belushi in Animal House.

3. I like pie alot, Blueberry pie, warmed up with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream is my all time favorite. Followed up by Pecan Pie

4. I like to work out, in the last year I lost 100lbs. I got 100 more to go about. 250lbs is my goal.  I’m 6’5″ that is my ideal weight.

5.  I do actually take blogs off my blogroll from time to time, and I do read all of them at some point or another. Except the foreign language ones. I can hardly read english.

6. In grammar school they thought I had a severe learning disability, until I started taking the standardized test to get into High School. In 8th grade they found out I could do math, and reading at a college level.  It turns out I just didn’t like school that much.

7. I have had more jobs then that guy who does that show “Dirty Jobs”, I’ve been everything from Cashier,  Armed Guard, Cook at Hooters, Assistant Manager at a Quick Oil Change place, Bouncer at various bars, finally to what I am now an Network Admin.

8. I use to party, and drink with the Hell’s Angels. They use to hang out at Bars I use to bounce at.  

9. I was a jock in High School, yeah I was a Football star, Wrestling, and Track. I was that kid Geeks hated.

10. When girls ask me what I do, and I don’t really like them. I tell them I own several shemale porn sites, I tell them the niche market is where it’s at. They usually leave me alone after that.


So there ya go. Thanks again for this honor.

My Mom plays War

Posted in Warhammer- Online with tags on March 26, 2009 by theerivs

Turns out she’s ignorant, and stupid.  I left a nasty comment up, I don’t agree with it, or that kind of stuff. Some of the best players I played with were homosexual,  some didn’t have penises aka girls, and some I don’t really know if they had backbones, they could of been amorpheus blobs, for all I care.

I left it up, because I believe in freedom of speech. You come on my blog feel free to say what you want to say. I will let it stand, for if you come off spouting ignorance, and stupidity, people will see what you are.

There’s alot of negativity coming from alot of places. A lot of things I really could be upset about. I’m not really that upset. Sure it bums me out. The real reason I pissed is my graphics card took a dump, and I could chop up idiots like Mom.

I still like this game, even though my WAR is like a slideshow, I still logged on respeced to Rending Blade, with the rest in Discord for Quake. Gemmed up my stuff with Toughness, as much as I could afford, donned my 2hander sword, and dyed my stuff Chaos Black. 

When my graphics card gets here , there will be a new era upon us. Change is good, so sayeth the Raven God.  Time to show that Rivs changes accordingly. I’m coming for you Mom, and all you ignorant fucks. The Master of Change wants your soul!

My hate is consuming me.

Posted in Warhammer- Online on March 25, 2009 by theerivs

I don’t like posting negative things, but Mythic just keeps battering us down and then with my graphics card blow up it’s left me in a foul mood indeed.

I’m still under warranty, but waiting on the RMA request is taking time, time which I don’t have.

Order for the first time since I was playing Destro has made it to IC. Lets thank the OP of Bright Wizards for that. This makes me really upset since I can’t be there to defend my city.

I have to give up my beloved tanking spec so that I may compete in RvR when I do get back up and running. Run Rending Blade, with stacks upon stacks of toughness. I said goodbye to my regular PvE buddies, it isn’t fair to them. If I can’t properly tank then they need to find someone who can.

My  guild is falling apart, the apathy of Destruction side of Iron Rock is so thick you can cut it with a knife, the whole atmosphere is draining to say the least.

Part of me says to call it quits, part of me says to close my doors here.

I won’t though, my utter hatred for Order has me seething with rage. When my new graphics card is working again. I shall go on the hunt, and earn favor with the Raven God once more.

Cry me a River

Posted in Unrelated on March 24, 2009 by theerivs

So I was getting a whopping 2fps, I heard strange noises from my computer a few days ago. It went away, but now graphics are running horrible. I opened my computer, and the heat almost blew me away. Well I reckon that my Graphics Card Fan stopped working, and I think my Card is fried. I had a Galaxy 8600GT 256Mb DDR3. I switched to my onboard graphics card, I just wept. I have a slim case, and need a low profile graphics card, that doesn’t suck up juice.  Hopefully it’s still under warranty, if not anyone have any cheap suggestions? My budget only always for whiskey, women, and pie this month.
