Back From the Shadows! A Quick Post-Quest Status Report…

Greetings from the end of a long journey, fellow rogues!

In case you’re wondering what happened to this adventurer over the last week or so…I went to a conference! It was a wonderful conference on the latest sneaking techniques, the best ways to use smoke bombs without making your clothes smell funky, and how to manage problem paladins. I myself gave a presentation on the finer points of dagger polishing!

(Actually it was a science conference, but you know what I mean 😉

Path of Exile Lush Hideout Throne Idea

Luckily, even after being exiled to the forsaken continent of Wraeclast, she was still able to use her interior decorating skills.

Anyway, although it was a large conference (>500 people), the town it was held in was small, so…basically we broke the internet. This meant NO POSTING OR COMMENTING OR INSTAGRAMMING FOR A WHOLE WEEK OMG. It was hard, I’m telling you. So if you’ve been wondering where I’d gone to, there’s your answer! I will be back at my usual rogueish games soon, so expect posts, comment dumps  and general rogueishness from tomorrow – I’m looking forward to catching up with all the reading I’ve missed while I was away. 🙂

Speaking of science, though, the one thing that has hit my social media feeds once I got out of the dead zone was the news that my fellow scientist and blog BFF Jaa had her paper accepted for publication in a kickass high impact factor journal! ❤ Congrats Jaa!  ❤   😀

Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for internet dead zones! Also traps.

    • It’s really amazing how much we all become dependent on it – and not just for blogging! You suddenly realise how much work stuff you have on the cloud, or rely on Teamviewer for, etc. Crazy times T_T

  1. i feel like the hardest part of no internet is messaging programs not working? i’d hate to be out of touch with bf & cousins for that long! i’d have to resort to…. /cringes with horror… paying long distance phone bills?!? (assuming i was out of the country of course)

    • Definitely. I was intending to Skype with the Wizard while I was away… guess how well that worked out, LOL! Plus unless you’re on some stupid extortionate plan, it costs you like $1 per minute to call anything from a cellphone here T_T

  2. Haha! I definitely laughed about the bit where you broke the internet, but I can relate. I’m glad that you’re back and I’m looking forward to more posts. That’s fabulous to hear about Jaa’s publication. Peer reviewed journals involve quite the road to publication (which they should).

    • You can probably imagine what broken internet does to the moods of 500 academics who now can’t check their emails during long plenary sessions, LOL! It would have been hilarious if it weren’t so annoying… 😉

  3. A truely flamboyant throne. I approve. Also good to read you know posses the power to control the internet. The combined power of 500 scientist surely is enough to bring it down on its knees. I suggest you make it put down those “1 simple trick” adds and it may go freely again.
