Of Muse and Calling it Quits.

I have quit Runescape. I doesn't appeal to me anymore, not enough combat, too many quests, noobs and spammers. Look on the Rants forum if you want to see what I mean. My membership runs out in May and its gonna stay that way for a very long time.

As for these 'Of' titles, Musings of a Small Mind is my new title but that lil bit of info beneath the title is now gonna say: Oh Muse ! Grant me voice and memory to tell...after tell, the word 'Of' comes in. I want that lil line to connect with my titles in some small way.

Of Spam and the End of the World

Quote: lol so u dont like people with bad grammer? go fuck ur self then noob lvl 70s arent high lvls, and stop whining about bad grammer ur one of those noobs that jagex is worring about End Quote.

I found at least 7 errors in there that aren't slang, netlingo or shortened versions of regular words. That, my friends, is how Boombaye1's theory of reverse evolution works.

A while ago, I got this comment. Since I don't ever check back on the comments on old posts, I only ran into this one when I was deleting E-Mails. I'm lucky though, Marlaine has to deal with something along the lines of 200 spam comments per post and I expect at least 20 of them should be from haters.

Listen, Sparky, I don't care what you say about me, I have my opinions and you have yours ! I don't meddle with you so you don't meddle with me ! Capiche ? You have one chance to pull yourself back together before the Ban Hammer comes down. Gah ! I just read on Kitt's New Blog that Blogger doesn't let you ban anymore ! Great. My last line of defence is gone. Now I see why Tim doesn't allow comments, Kitt stopped blogging and Marlaine doesn't use Blogger.

Kitt has changed genders to slow down people making passes at her and something about outfits. I changed mine just for fun at first but then, watching how many people would ask me out (the red outfit helped) I now hang around on free worlds a lot and report anyone who asks for a BF/GF.

Kitt says hell is other people. I say this isn't life, this is Hell with fluorescent lighting.

Here are a couple links I ran into at Yahoo!

End of the Earth Day
Take a look at the solutions to these problems, they're the best part.

Films that make Your High-School History Teacher Cry
Gotta love Speedos (You didn't hear it from me)

I am getting closer to changing my blog title to Musings of a Small Mind. It seems more fitting.

Boombaye1 over and out !

Of Post Titles, Money and Sandpaper

Most blog post titles tell you something about the topic. 'A Bright Prospect for Merchants', 'The Good, the Bad and the Stupid' and 'Tips on Magic.....Summoning.....' are prime examples. Mine are no less the same. I've lost that creative jest when creating post titles and most will now start with 'Of' Kitt seems to have the most humorous and creative and I can't mine humorous and creative without crossing the copywrite line.

While I was casually strolling about in Lumbridge on a free world and reporting noobs (Wow, me, reporting noobs. Shocker) 2 people said I was showing off my high level and equipment in the space of 1 hour. Why shouldn't I be allowed to show my Dragon Sq Shield or my level 100 Combat ? I earned it through hard work and you should stop flapping your git and get yourself to work earning something. This isn't a case where Daddy's Little Princess phones Daddy and within 1 hour, shes strolling down Main Street, flaunting that diamond studded purse of hers. She didn't earn it, she shouldn't make it look like shes better than anyone else here.

My lips and mouth feel like sandpaper. I got myself dehydrated when school started and I can't yawn without feeling nerve ending swear at me. That glass of water in front of my monitor is also obstructing my vision ! That and I'll allow 3 Days to answer the questions I post before I post my ideas and/or answers.

Boombaye's Questions of the Post:

How many things are in the WOM's house that don't exist anywhere else ?

Shellshock: What does it do ?

Why do people use fake flavourants in concentrated lemon juice but real lemon juice in dishwashing liquid ?

Of Names, Luck, Disappointment and Musings of a Small Mind

Disappointment. We've all faced it. That new Andre Sanda Rodriguez dress you can't afford. A computer that handles Crysis you can't afford. A friend who has stopped blogging (Kitt Fox reference).

Today, luck struck for me as I emptied out my kingdom, no eggs. I was Disappointed. Dug through the nests, I was lucky and hit a Spirit Seed. I said:" Aren't these the seeds that go for like 2 mil on the GE ?!" I charged at the Exchange (maniac style) 'This item cannot be sold on the Grand Exchange' Disappointment. That seed is now a placekeeper in my bank. I also like to buy a few things or just go through the exchange if I'm upset or something. I accidentally sold my whip for 1.3 mil but that resulted in me doing Legends Quest and obtaining a Dragon Sq shield.

Today, I made the idiot mistake of buying a Rune Berserker Shield "just because I can". Its sitting there at minimum price waiting for a buyer. However, in selling everything I got from my kingdom, I did manage to rack up another 100k boosting my budget to 300k. That 171k from the shield is gonna make it even better.

That brings me back to the days where I would quit on a goal and have a stack of coins sitting there and then spending it on something stupid. I have considered more Mole Hunting as the nest prices have raised and I can actually get buyers now.

Onto the names !

A name is something you really shouldn't change but I hope to change mine to Boombaye instead of Boombaye1. Then I can join the Pantheon of Cool People with no Numbers Behind Their Usernames. I kinda feel that Boombaye1 seems like your average 'secondary player' and not a main account. Boombaye's password was lost to time though. I have been thinking of changing my blog title to 'Musings of a Small Mind' (inspired by Marlaine's Musings) its gone about 2000 miles off course from the Runescape topic. Remember, thinking about it, not implementing yet.

I'm also adding a few things for you to think about at the end of each post. Just to get that grey matter working.

Boombaye's Questions of the Post:

Which melee Barrow's armour is stylish and provides good defense bonuses ? (Torag's is out !)
Combos of different parts are also accepted.

Why are coffins always nailed shut ?

The Learnean Hydra: How many heads does it have ?

Post your answers in a comment, please I really don't want these things in the chatbox.

Of Kitt, gaming and vacation.

Kitt stopped blogging and has left her blog in the dust...This is my 80th post and I'm typing this out as Dawn of War: Soulstorm is installing. I'm an avid gamer, no surprise. Runescape has lost its position as top game I waste my life on. Now its between the Maxing out my character on Titan Quest and beating the snot out of anything in Soulstorm. I have not quit Runescape and may never will but I will miss Kitt. It appears that her blog was shot down by flak from someone by the name of Kayla.

During my vacation, my Father bought a new laptop with Windows Vista and enough Ram and a good enough graphics card to run Company of Heroes and I spent more time on that than sightseeing.

I'll see about posting pictures of my vacation later on but right now...Soulstorm finished installing.

Kitt = Tau Empire. Strong in her beliefs and willing to take charge...even if it means gross consquence.
Kayla = Dark Eldar. Malevolent, cruel and takes pleasure in cruelty.
Boombaye1 = Can I pick more than one ?
Tim = Inquisition. Leaders and warriors dedicated to punching evil where it hurts most...genitals or the wallet, we may never know.
Marlaine = Sisters of Battle. Maintain calm and never explode unless with a good reason =p

Buy Kitt and happy slaughter of Dark Eldar to me.

We had a blackout earlier and I got bored enough to right a my descent into madness. Our group was hit by the Llamas again and it took an hour to restore power and evacuate...

19:55. Power goes out. Was playing Titan Quest. Lost all progress. 6000 exp away from maxing out defense.

20:03. Parents arrive home from work.

20:05. Realizes cellphone batteries will die within an hour.

20:17. Finished Dinner.

20:19. Decide to listen to music.

20:20. Got bored of music. Decide to listen to music upside-down on couch.

20:21. Got bored of above idea.

20:22. Decide its easier to listen to music upside-down on couch in living room than study.

20:26. Got bored.

20:27. Decided to jot this down and post on blog.

20:29. Attempt to pour Coke in the dark.

20:30. Cleans up mess left from 20:29.

20:37 Plays the same song over for the third time in a row. Got another 'battery low' message.

20:39. Battery dies. Preparing to give it a funeral.

20:42 Opening up the cellphone to obtain battery requires screwdriver.

20:43 Launches world's smallest search party. Objective: Screwdriver.

20:45 Aborts funeral. Can't obtain screwdriver without murdering a crow.

20:51. Brain starts shutting down. Lack of radiation from Computer screens and TV is primary cause.

20:54. I hts hed on tabel.

20:56. After 4 glasses of Coke and some kind of solidified, frozen water, my brain appears to function as normal.

20:58. Our scouting party gas been trapped in this desolate wasteland for over an our. Morale is low and we've eaten our last swimsuit calendar. I got June through August. Voting to see who will give up an arm for breakfast.

21:05 A clan of mutant Llamas armed with harpoon guns steal our breakfast.

21:11. Delta 62 went bananas.

21:12. Tossed 62 off a cliff. He landed on another cliff.

21:17. I am writing this by the light of mortar fire as the Llamas are hitting us again. We have 07 on the conduit but it could be a while before power is restored. They're comi-

I'll let you guess what happened next.

Draw. Write. Play.

I discovered a great new comic by the name of Draw Write Play. If you like Ctrl Alt Delete then you'll love this. Its Ctrl Alt Delete with boobs ! Really. Refreshing humor, randomness and a barrage of innuendo. Too bad it only started in 2007 and there isn't much of an archive...yet. The author seems to also miss quite a few updates or is late rather often...meh. Sounds like me.

That comic is right

I beat Titan Quest !

I finished the game in 31 hours and 22 Minutes. Probably less because I took the time to killing some guys. However, don't be fooled by the shortness.

I only explored: 1 out of 28 possible classes.
2 out of a possible 8 skills.
1 difficulty level.
3 rare weapons.
2 rare pieces of armour.
Killed only about half of all creatures that existed.
Only brought down 12-18 out of a helluva lot of bosses.
Got level 31 out of 65

I want to create a new character and use 2 different skills but I also want to max this other one out. I'm gonna max this one out first.

Forum Spam

Title says more than enough. I opened a page on the forums and there were NINE locked threads in a row. I see that the mods never seem to be idle. JaGex really should start banning IPs more often. Every time someone like 76ers Master posts, a possibly worthwhile thread is pushed off the dark cliff onto page 51.

Pure Noob992: His name says it all. Terrible spelling and punctuation. Wheres a guillotine when you need it ?
1099 Carson: Wastes a space saying something utterly pointless and has been said a thousand times before.
76ers Master: Idiot. 'Nuff said.

Does that tell you why I want idiot repellent ? Bear Mace isn't strong enough for these guys.

Regards, Boombaye1

Runescape free worlds falling apart...

Aye. Nutjobs are actually soliciting cybersex on Runescape free worlds. There is less trouble like that on Members worlds. I often visit free worlds if I'm bored to check out the chaos. JaGex has also tightened security on those worlds. Every time I go there, there is a 75% chance of running into a mod. This never happened when I first started playing. In fact, in early 2007, it wasn't too common to see someone begging. Whenever I walk into Lumbridge, all hell breaks loose as a get at lease 5 trades within 3 minutes. Most will just say 'plz' after I say no. Its a harsh cycle.

There are a few players who go about their business and I just say to myself "they have potential". I still wonder what those few non-noobs can handle this torrent of stupidity. Whats worse is the report abuse system. You can't send more than 1 report every 60 seconds. Why can't JaGex have a system that filters reports, if there is more than 1 report for 1 person every 60 seconds, can't they just keep if for later ? That way I kind pummel as many different players as I can pummel different keys every minute.
