I picked the game back up last weekend and had a pretty identical experience. Quality drops and interesting legendaries that affect skills and game mechanics in fun, useful but not really game breaking ways. I also found far more crafting recipes dropping than I remember. I'm definitely excited to get into the expansion as soon as I can.

I don't get it. What does your SSID have to do with driving?

What driving? He just wants to avoid huge ships.

I assumed he wanted to avoid the other bits that were clogging the tubes.

Your Wifi issues seem to me to be related more to your AP than the devices themselves.

I've had a similar wifi issue with my phone (Nexus S) maintaining a connection to a home network running one of those ISP provided all-in-one router/modems. The solution was to turn off "Avoid Poor Connections" in Settings > Wi-Fi> Advanced.

I'm in the US, I only have a cell phone, and my number is also registered on the Do Not Call list. I've gotten 2 in the past month from numbers in Washington state. Legality doesn't seem to stop them. Though it's hard to complain since there's never anyone on the other end by the time I answer.

I've only played through the intro, a bandit camp, and a cave full of bandits, but I definitely agree, so far magic is way more fun than Oblivion. Setting people on fire, or watching lightning arc across their skin is way more satisfying than almost anything in Oblivion. Additionally, more than once, when I've run across multiple enemies, I've shot some fire at them with my left hand, realized I should try to use my sword to level that too, but I kill them with fire before they even make it to me. That's how a mage should play! I also like the change to a constant stream of magic firing from my hands, since now I don't have to waste half of my magicka when my Big Powerful Spell misses.

A few weeks ago I had my (2 years inactive) WoW account get owned and banned, possibly through my email account, so that was a major sign to sort out and properly tier all my passwords. I found firefox's list of saved passwords to be particularly helpful as a checklist of sites to change, as well as a reminder of how stupid I had been using my "good" password on far too many low priority sites in the past. Also a strong reason against having one "good" password.

Thanks to your post, however, I am also reminded that I shouldn't assume this list is complete, as I had completely forgotten about Ebay and Paypal passwords, which I must not have used in the past couple years.

I use an app called "SMS Backup" which uploads all SMS messages I send and receive from my Android phone to my GMail inbox with a custom label (default is "SMS"). They show up properly as conversations between me and my contacts (To and From fields appropriately link to the correct contacts since the address book is shared between phone and GMail). I've found this extremely useful when I can't remember if I said something to someone via email, Google Talk (which already logs chats in GMail) or SMS, since a GMail search will find it. I suppose some may have privacy concerns with Google logging all their SMS, but I think this behavior would make an excellent addition to Android/GMail to keep GMail competitive with what Facebook is doing as well as to make GMail more attractive to "casual" Android users who only signed up for GMail as a requisite to getting an Android phone.
