I suspect that cartographer's constant badgering me to be more upbeat and optimistic is having an effect since for the second time in as many months I am inexplicably excited about something. It is a mere forty minutes until I will have a copy of the Burning Crusade collector's edition in my greasy mitts, complete with its book of concept art and CD of music I will promptly be ripping to my MP3 player.
I also find myself wondering why the phrase is "Badgering" since badgers are more famed for turning on you, ripping your face off, giving you rabies and murdering your spouse forcing you to scream vengance at the stormy clouds than gruff yet good natured persuasion. I suspect "Hedgehogging" lacks a verbal ring but it seems more appropriate. Hippapotamising too.

Ah! You might be the man to know! Do you need a copy of BC for each computer/account you intend to install it with, or can you use one copy to install on multiple computers, as with the original WoW disks?

One copy can be installed on as many computers as you like, macs and pcs included. You just need one account key per ... account you want to expand. So just like the original really.

Account key? I've not heard of that before...

You enter it in the website to create the account you'll log into. Chances are you did it years ago and don't remember.

Lord, I don't remember that at all. My recollection of account/password keys for other games installs tell me that it was strictly one copy-one key-one acccount, and that meant you couldn't use the same disks on another computer; you'd have to get fresh disks and a fresh password/key.

Ah feck, I should just give up this attempt to understand gaming systems.

hippos are fucking mean nasty creatures won't hestitate to eat you, your children, and anyone so much as fucking looking at them the wrong way from half-mile away, which is the approximate range of their all-encompassing gigantor maws that devour the bodies and souls of men and their families unto the third generation, just to see the surprised look of your great-grandkids years later.

they're sort of like dick cheney in that respect. except they don't shoot people in the face. they just eat the face.

hippos fucking terrify me.

I asked this very question some time back. Well, a similar question anyway.

Hippapotamisation would be bad for the environment, I feel.

And hippopotamisation too, which would be a better spelling.

I'm pretty sure hedgehogging is a very dodgy sexual prctice. Kind of like Teabagging but spikier.

Oh dear, I read "since badgers are more famed for turning on you" as "since badgers are more famed for turning you on" twice before I realised what it really said.
