Last night, I saw a tweet go out from the WildStar account that made me super sad. “It’s show time!” Carbine said. “Sara Conavius is in town September 14–21 to help renovate your homes for the best program on holovision.” I had no stake in this game at all, and I still felt awful for the players seeing that like a jolt on Twitter – heck, I can’t even tell whether the tweet was something the devs scheduled long ago and just forgot to delete, or they really are trying to drum up support for some final events in the game before it’s gone. The player responses were similarly confused. What’s the point, they wondered, when it’s slated for execution? I’ve certainly gone through those painful thought processes myself in past games. I had to force myself to log into sunsetting games to take screenshots. I couldn’t fake enjoying it; mostly, I’d log in to commiserate with other folks who were just as frustrated … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Do you still log in to play MMOs that are scheduled to sunset?
Clinics that are open today
World of Warcraft raiders, start your proverbial engines: Uldir, the first of Battle for Azeroth’s raids, officially opens its gates today. The eight-boss raid is an ancient Titan facility where the Titans once quarantined and studied specimens corrupted by the void energy of the Old Gods, searching for a way to counter it. Unsurprisingly, things went horribly, horribly wrong, and of course now it’s up to 10 or 25 of Azeroth’s finest to sort it out. The normal and heroic versions of the raid are open today, September 4th, with the mythic version following next week on September 11th. For the time being, you’ll need to get a premade group together to tackle the raid’s challenges, but for those who prefer to PUG it up, the raid will be accessible via LFR in three stages: The first wing will open alongside the mythic raid on September 11th, followed by the second wing on September 25th, with the third and final wing opening up on October 9th. Good luck, … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth’s Uldir raid opens today

A lot of your subscribers follow different blogs. So don’t be surprised if they forget about your blog by the end of the month. With tons of content on the web, I bet some of your subscribers only visit your site once a month, or once every few months, or maybe even never. When faced with this dilemma, how do you keep your blog in your subscribers’ radar? How do you make sure that they keep coming back for more? If you answered “write more interesting blog posts in the hopes that my subscribers will miraculously discover my content”, then you don’t exactly have the right idea. These days, if you want subscribers to be informed and updated, try a simple email. No, we’re not talking about just any email. Think drip campaign emails that are meant to nurture your subscribers for a period of time. Say, WHAAAT? For the uninitiated, “drip campaigns” are a series of emails that contain marketing information which are meant to acquire customers. … [Read more...] about How To Create Drip Campaign Emails That Get Opened And Read
There was a time when I (and probably you) struggled with Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop software on a Windows PC to remotely access someone else’s computer. It was a terrible experience and never worked for me as it involved quite a few network settings and protocols — which I still don’t understand much. And there were few free and premium remote desktop connection managers like LogMeIn, GoToMyPC, etc. at that time. But I was least interested in trying those remote desktop connection managers as it was of no use to me. Then, with the advent of the smartphone era, I tried remote desktop apps for mobile like Splashtop, PocketCloud, LogMeIn, Join.me, and TeamViewer, etc. and almost all of them failed to impress me. It was simply not the kind of productivity apps that I wanted or even care about. My impression completely changed when Microsoft and Google introduced their own Remote Desktop apps for web and mobile a couple of years back. The good thing is… both … [Read more...] about 3 Best Of The Best Remote Desktop Access Software That Are Free
