These are very rudimentary right now but I'm starting to build landing pages for each of the teams to feature the team's twitter feed, roster, and schedule. Football will have a depth chart and upcoming class commit list as well. I'll think of some other fixed content that would make for a good reference point. The links to the pages are above the twitter feed on the home page.

Hello,

Okay, so I've not tried doing this in what...7 years? The last time I tried winning the fishing contest was back during the twilight days of Wrath. Back then, I remember this being an absolute pain to win.



Has anything changed? Really the only reason I want to win it is for the heirloom ring to complete my collection and perhaps the fishing rod.



Please if anyone has any information about it please help me out, i've been trying to serach it everywhere but didnt find any proper solution for it, please if anyone has a proper and exact information please help me out



Please help.

Thanks!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

NEWBookmarkLockedFalling Gearscore ruining WoW?

0 586 by jensenbreck
Hello,

The reason this seems to be a problem with me is the fact that people like me, who just hit 80, seem to have a hard time getting into groups. I haven't been able to get into a ICC raid (10 or 25) because my gearscore is too low and I have never run it before. I have tried to bolster this by getting arena and Justice point gear, but I still am low compared to other 80s.



The issue is that I want to run ICC for gear, but can't because my gearscore is too low for people to accept, so I can't run ICC for experience or gear, so I'm stuck with lower gear, so people won't let me run ICC, so I can't get gear, because people don't like my gear, beacuse I can't...

Thanks,

NEWBookmarkLockedFalling 2 observations from the horde cinematic
jensenbreck Avatar

0 488 by jensenbreck
Hello,
Are the alliance right to be suspicious about the goblins and curious about the ore? Sure. But it's looking like they're prepping to attack for what again, is simply a large mining expedition, which would be a huge character departure for Anduin. It might conveniently tie into why Sylvannas eventually "retaliates" by burning down a world tree (that would be some super-fast escalation though...). But I'm hoping there's more to it than that.

Is Blizzard trying to write Llortermar out of the story for some reason? We had all the horde leaders there (even the trolls got a nod with the reference to Vol'jin)...and if you squinted hard in the 3 frames he was visible, you could see some blond hair in the corner that might have belonged to Llortremar (but could have been any blood elf).
Thanks,

NEWBookmarkLockedFalling Obvious Hatred of PvP

Hello,

Today, I got an achievement in PvP called Bloodthirsty Berserker while in Battle for Gilneas. At the same exact time, two other people got it, but we were all huddled together not attacking anything and none of us were berserking or anything, and also none of us killed anyone there. AND that achievement is for Eye of the Storm.
And also, I was on my alt level 19. I had PvP on and got ganked. So I got two achieves for that. An Honorable kill and also Honorable medallion for entering a battleground.

Thanks,

Just stumbled onto the site and thought I would look around. Seems like you have a lot of changes coming...is that why you haven't promoted the site heavily?

I was a long time poster on uf.n, and I know there are some new options since webmonkey's passing. While the format of uf.n needed updating badly, the conversational style of posting was a plus. Hope you can create something that becomes a good landing spot for a good cross section of Utah fans.
Thanks for dropping by.

There's a few more things that I want to see the site able to do, and I have a time frame for when I want to finish those. I'm still getting a little bit more functionality out of what I've already paid for, but I'll have to see what I ultimately have to pay in terms of upgrades to know what my final promotions budget will be. My goal is to get those things done with low enough cost that I can have a pair of season tickets for every Utah sport to give away for in-site promotions. The platform I went with was best for filtering out Cesspool stuff, which I thought was the most important requirement for a Utah message board. It sucks as far as in-site contests go, and that's what I'm figuring out now.
You have done a great job so far and I believe it will continue. I wish I had more time to post more here but there is that pesky thing called time again. Oh my, look at the time, I have to run.

NEWBookmarkLockedFalling Academia Utah researchers find....

When I lived in Tacoma in the mid 80's I would go to a place called B&I Circus which was nothing more than an indoor flea market. They had a 500lb Silverback Gorilla named Ivan who had been in the Daktari TV series in the sixties. He would come up to the window inches from me and I would be in awe looking at his muscle mass and guessing at how much testosterone it must have taken to produce that Kind of muscle.

Years later I was watching Animal planet were they explained that the average Gorilla only has an inch and a half long penis. In my opinion the trade off isn't worth it. :)

The good news to the story is they moved Ivan from his tiny room in Tacoma to his own outdoor habitat at the Atlanta Zoo. My youngest boy was able to see him there 12 years later.

My question is, does a foreign government that wants to attack the US hack/take down military targets/satellites/communications or do they do the smart thing and bypass the US military entirely and attack civilian targets like power grids? The Russian hack on the power grid in Vermont suggests to me the latter.
This is a good question witch obviously you and I have no answer to but I would like to think that we as a nation are prepared for both and beyond. I hope we learned from Pearl Harbor that we can never sit back on our heels, never say never, and by all means never think we will not be attacked at any given point in time.



There is nothing new to taking out civilian power grids, this will always be the plan. The first Iraq war I recall that we had used a new weapon that would take out power grids and if I recall it was basically the first time ever used in war and it worked like a charm. Now with that thought I would think that the first strike would be satellites, Hit the communications first then the power grids. Scary stuff to think about but hopefully that is also what keeps the peace.

So they're actually top 15 rather than top 10 in ARWU rankings. Rutgers, Maryland, Colorado, and Utah are in their respective conferences based on the academic factors weighted in ARWU.

With UCSD the PAC would have 5 top 20 ARWU schools; the rest of FBS would have 0. That's the branding the PAC wants.

I don't think it matters whatsoever if UCSD sucks at sports. PAC membership would automatically catapult them ahead of SDSU, SJSU, and Fresno. They also have a wealthier alumni base to support growth.


It might even work better to just go to 14 with UCSD and Texas. UCLA and USC would just have to alternate divisions every few years. Utah would play more SoCal games in this scenario than currently. I think the money and recruiting access to Texas would be a big deal.

I spent a lot of time getting a "New Posts" section on the top of the home page, but for some reason haven't got it to work, so I built the forum quick links you see now and moved it into my global header. I think it makes the "Active Threads" view better than the current home page. I think I'll do a poll to see what people think.
jrj, sanute. I was referring to this post. jrj's last sentence said he thinks he'll take a poll. Both you and I put likes on it. Considering the site traffic right now I was trying to make a joke  that our two likes were the poll. I must have been drinking Stella instead of Budlight cause it turned out to be lame. :-/
