Zombie plague infects World of Warcaft

No word whether diet includes brains.

With just 20 days until the launch of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, the early effects of the undead's looming arrival have manifested as a zombie invasion.

The first sign of trouble was the arrival of the Argent Dawn, who appeared in capital cities throughout Azeroth. Said the Dawn, "The plagued tendrils of the Lich King lurk close." Scary!

Then, the zombies.

The walking dead appeared outside major cities, and players unlucky (or lucky?) enough to come in contact with them were themselves infected with the zombie plague. Players have 10 minutes to find a healer before the plague takes hold. Becoming a zombie isn't as bad as it sound, though. Players are granted a new status bar and zombie abilities, which last until the player is cured by a healer.

And then the zombie crates showed up.

In the Booty Bay area, "Conspicuous Crates" appeared last night that can also infect players. The results, after 10 minutes, are the same as the zombies.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
