    Canthan New Year that is.
    This time it's the turn of the Tiger to take centre stage.
    Here's the PR:
    The Year of the Tiger is upon us—it's time for the annual Canthan New Year's Festival! Help honor the Celestial Tiger, a divine feline that will descend from the heavens to bestow good luck upon the populace for all of 2010—but only if the traditional New Year's feast meets the beast's heavenly standards!

  2. Remix' vs original songs

    It's wintersday again, and I should be running charas through quests, and yet I'm avoiding logging in because of sleep issues, and I have the oddest thing pop into my head while going through stuff.

    I have various music like all of you do, and much of it is alternative and trance among other things.
    Something artists of this nature are wont to do is to take existing music, and remix it with new beats, maybe adjust the speeds on them, maybe only use a small sample and reuse ...
  3. Replaying: Arx Fatalis (summary & impressions)

    Late Friday night the GuildWarsGuru database was accessed by an unknown third party. We caught it as it happened, but in that short space of time it appears they may have managed to obtain tables of user account information.

    Their point of entry was a flaw in the WordPress software used to run the GuildWars2Guru.com front page. How they managed to get from there to the other databases is unknown right now, as it involved bypassing other security measures we have in place.
