I'm back in the saddle officially as of tonight. Feels good after taking some time off to get back online. Unfortunately one of my hard drives crashed last night so I spent all day today getting Windows reinstalled on my data drive. Then the install of classic WoW, followed by BC install, followed by downloading patch 2.3, then 2.4, then 2.4.1. and finally 2.4.2. That's to say nothing of getting my add-ons back in order.
Ah well, I raided Hyjal tonight with nothing more than Bongos2 and Perl Classic. It was an experience. I was thinking going into the raid "maybe this will be good and I can break free of being so mod-dependent." Nope. Not gonna happen. I'm putting them all back and going right back to where I was before: mod crazy and loving it.
