Making the World of Warcraft more trivial, one post at a time…

The researchers think that a mechanism called probabilistic inference explains why the action games help speed up our decision making. Our brains interpret the sensory information they receive, and then work out what actions have the highest probability of a favourable result.

Happy birthday to me

Happy birthday dear Leafy blog
You're an aging tree…

Yes, folks, today is my third blogiversary. It's been three long years since I first put finger to keyboard on this fine blog.

Amongst the world of resto druid bloggers, I'm now an ancient, lurking in the woods, handing out annoying quests and reminiscing about the times when Phaelia and Bell were blogging…

Sadly, however, advancing age has not brought wisdom in my case, like it has with, say, Big Bear Butt (but I may be confusing "verbosity" with "sagacity" in his case…) so you can safely assume that for serveral more years you'll be "blessed" with the normal irregular combination of silly observations and video, mixed with the occasional long, deep and highly-linked to cultural analysis piece that makes up my output here.

Consistency, as a wise man once said, is the hobgoblin of small minds…

Anyway, thank you to all of you who bother to swing by, and especially those of you who comment, link or accept my strange view of a guest post. It's the community of readers, commenters and bloggers that makes this such a fun thing to do, and why I carry on doing it.

Oh, and a belated happy blogiversary to the lovely Keredria of Tree of Life, who is a few days blog older than I am
