One thing I really love to try in Japan is the crazy drinks some companies can come up with… Today I tried Suntory’s “Espressoda”. Hmmm, what a clever play on words to describe this beverage made of… sparkling coffee!
6 weeks ago, I bought Diablo 3 and had to use a VPN in order to access Battle.net. After lots of research, it turned out Battle.net is blocking hundreds of IP addresses in Japan, for no valid reason.
I’ve been running into issues connecting to battle.net for the past 3 weeks. If you’ve followed my adventures so far, it’s become obvious to you that the problem is on Blizzard’s side, but sadly they are not treating the issue with huge importance. I opened a ticket with their Customer service, and here is the last reply I got from them:
I know it’s always risky to make such assumptions in a haste, but basically two weeks ago I upgraded my server to a better machine, and I saw a dramatic increase in my adsense revenue.
My last comment was that I opened a ticket to Blizzard in order to get them to fix the issue. The problem is not with playing any of their games, but accessing the battle.net website with a regular browser.
If you’ve followed my adventures last night, you know that I haven’t been able to connect to battle.net recently. Not one of those “my game refuses to login”, no. I can’t f##ing access the battle.net website with firefox!!! This means, among other things, that I can’t even buy the game. Crazy, I know.
Recently I bought a new computer, with the sole goal of playing Diablo 3 on it (might blog about that one day).
I went to the diablo3.com website, which has a convenient link to buy a digital copy of the game.
This is what I get when I try to click on that link:
I’ve watched many, many TV shows and drama in my life. I think I can safely say that HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is by far the best drama I’ve ever watched in my life.
I’m not that big of an heroic fantasy fan, I’m more into science fiction usually. But the quality bar is extremely high on Game of Thrones, and it feels like each episode has the production value of a full length movie.
Yesterday LinkedIn.com got hacked, and about 6 million passwords were stolen. Those passwords are encrypted, but it seems the hackers are looking for help to decrypt them.
I already blogged about Carmageddon finally getting a sequel through kickstarter.
The campaign will soon be over, and is close to its stretch goal of 600k$, which would guarantee a Linux and Mac ports to be completed in time.
You might not be a Linux or Mac owner, and asking yourself “why would I pledge for a port of the game to those platforms, if it already is funded and guaranteed to be available for my platform?”
