Lacy, Gently Wafting Curtains

Oh Em Gee.

If you haven't yet, you MUST check out Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Funniest thing I've seen in a long time. As a bonus, you can watch it now for free at Hulu.com. However, if you love it as much as I do, you might possibly want to purchase it from iTunes and benefit Joss Whedon and friends. It's only $4!

In other news, I had a bunch of fun at SOE's Block Party. However, the same day as the Block Party I found out that my awesome friend Patrick "Leurocian" Malott from Mythic was in town for a UO Town Hall, so I headed down there to attend the Town Hall and then brought Patrick up to the Block Party to check out the SOE New Hotness. We had a playable demo of DC Universe Online that people were loving, a new dungeon on display for EverQuest II, other games, a live band, food and more.

Speaking of EverQuest II, Game Update 47 is set to launch tomorrow. With support for (finally!) the Voice Chat system I've been working on for the past few months. Yay!

The Chat system was breathlessly awaited on many fronts on my server. Now that it has been implemented, I realize that it is much more complex than what most players originally thought.

What a wonderful thing to add to such a great game. It can only enhance the experience to hear your e-friends. :)

Thanks for the note!

It was a pleasure to bring the feature to light and I've enjoyed using it myself and hanging out in public channels with my play character.

The response we're seeing is very encouraging too!
