Selling my aPad and getting a Kindle

In March I bought an aPad, a cheap, Android-based 7" tablet device. It is quite nice to browse the web with and to read on it, not to mention the 720p video playback, but now, after half a year I rarely use it for anything else than reading and browsing.

So I decided to sell the aPad for 100 GBP and ordered one of those new Kindles, because it can do exactly what I need from a device like that: browsing the web and reading ebooks.

I did a lot of research before I made the decision, and the most important factor was the INK-technology screen, which will make reading for long times on the bus or on the plane so much less eye-straining. Not to mention that you can read in plain daylight, which was impossible on the aPad during the summer months.

I will see what 2011 brings in regards to Android tablets, and if someone adopts the ink-screen technology, because it just makes sense to have this for these devices.

I'm still using Android on my current phone, a HTC Hero, which I can upgr…

Warhammer Online - Shadow Warrior Advice - October 2010

Lets start with the trees
Scout - Long range / long cast trees, this tree is for those great big wind ups that you blow an enemy away with. You'll be focusing on "Festering Arrow" with Enchanted Arrows and Fell the Weak following it.

Assault - Melee tree, does exactly as it sounds, makes you a melee hybrid where you peck at them from range then close in and dish out some pain.

Skirmish - Kiting/AoE/Short Range Tree, this tree gives you the flexibility of shooting shots on the move as well as AOE. While its range is generally short, you can increase it with Powerful Draw. Your most useful tool comes from here as well, "Shadow Sting" -- just about every spec you do will require this.

Theres many abbreviations involved with talking about skills, so get to know these--
BHA-Broadheaded arrow
FA-festering arrow
EE-eagle eye
BA-brutal assault
SFA-spiralfletched arrow
FS-flanking shot
PD-powerful draw
RS-replenishing strikes
