WotLK soon?!

The latest Burning Crusade patch has, somewhat, been released. But I haven’t been able to download anything yet. Keeps giving me “data for next patch not available“.

But, when I launch the “WoW launcher”, I do get this splash screen, which doesn’t seem to be right just yet.

Seems like Blizzard messed up something, especially if the game and latest “pre-wotlk” patch hasn’t been installed/released yet.

Anyway, this does mean the expansion is going to be released soon, which is good I think. (Though I’d still like to get the ZA Amani bear, but doesn’t seem like I will anywhere soon)

Create Bootcamp partition

Today I had to reinstall Bootcamp, and thus create a new Windows partition.

Trying the Bootcamp setup wizard, I got the same error as I had before – “Your disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved”.

I tried to Zero-Out-Data, overwriting all deleted data on the disk with 0’s. Yet this did not seem to solve the problem.

After deleting some big files, like my heroes & 24 episodes, I tried again. Still nothing.

I then remembered I had WoW Wrath of the Lich King installed (7ish Gb). Deleting the WoW folder and trying again, did solve the problem. I didn’t even have to zero-out-data again.

So, basicly, deleting big files (folders?!) seems to solve the problem too.

Achievements are here

Seems cool, but only half of it is working. Some things I did are not reflected in the achievement page.

The stats tab is clickable, but pretty much everything is still set to “0” or NYI (not yet implemented).

WotLK & the new patch

After tonights 240Mb patch, you can now “learn” all mounts in your bag, and once learned, they’ll dissapear from your bag, creating additional space.

You can summon your mounts (and non combat pets) from Character -> Pet -> Companions/Mounts tab.

Also the first part of the Hunter’s pet talent tree has been added.

And yes, a flying mount for the Death Knight!

Mana & energy regeneration has been improved, and it seems very nice!

Quest log seems bugged, and you cannot open it anymore using your mouse. Use <L> instead.

A lot more info has been added on MMO-Champion.

Here are the patch notes (little or nothing seems to have changed from previous patch notes):
