There've been recent updates at Long Haired Weirdo and For The Dream. The latter was written today, when a news article said that Colonel Pappas has been given immunity and ordered to testify at some courts martial.

I did the exercise bike yesterday, and got through the end of .Hack, Part II, and started in on Part III. I think I've decided that I don't want to do any more four part games. The worst part is, the game tracks how long your current character has been played. I know some of the time has been spent with the game paused (or with the characters left in a safe location) while I grab food, check e-mail, etc., but I know that a good 90% of it is time that I've actually played, and *ick*.

Tomorrow, I'll hear back about the results of one interview, and I have another scheduled for next week. We'll see what happens.

Calluna (that's callunav) wants to know how you got past the boss at the end of the second game. (She had some problems with it.)

Mind you, she was also calling you a bastard at the time, but she was doing it affectionately. (I mean, as affectionately as you can of someone you don't know.)

Chuckle; I understand.

I don't remember doing anything, you know, *special* re: that boss. However, I was level 53 or 54 (and sometimes just one or two levels makes a big difference), I think I hit both Kite and Blackrose with all three of the physical combat boosts (+attack, +defense, +accuracy), and I treated every injury as an emergency, because (is it named Magus?) Magus can do some 800+ hp in a single hit.

I can't remember if Magus had any tolerance, but the board tells you that if you cast a reduction spell on a tolerant critter, it removes the tolerance. e.g., Dek Vorv (reduces defense, I think) removes physical tolerance.

I might have been casting spells, as well. I do know I was carrying around scrolls for water and earth (because twin blades don't get any water or earth based skills on weapons), and I know that, if I ever couldn't hit him, I used a spell (rather than waste time running around to catch him). I can't even be sure I didn't cast a speed charm, just to reduce the "running to catch up" time.

But the biggest thing I remember was having lots of healing potions, and 15 recovery drinks, and using them every time they'd fit. (i.e., as soon as someone was down more than 300, I hit them with a healing potion. If they were down 600+, I used a recovery drink). And, of course, I kept plenty of Mage Souls and (whatever the next higher one is, for recovery of skill points.)
