Bytes – Blog owner


I am an Australian.
I work as a Reference Librarian a Repository Application Administrator a Research Information Management System Administrator at a rural university library.
I am a casual gamer nerd (I say casual because my gaming life is fairly much dominated by MMOs these days, and really full time work and social activities get in the way of game time.)
Sometimes I DnD Sometimes I pathfinder Sometimes I White Wolf Sometimes I Camarilla. Sometimes I NetFlix cause I am old and tired now.
I garden a lot.
Mostly I read.
I have 100 hobbies and very few commitments and a half dozen animal dependants to go with the mortgage.
I have played warcraft since vanilla wow.
That was five years a long damn time ago?
I played Horde for many many years.
Hunters are my original main class.
I started on a role play server and used to offer the mighty defenders of the barrens crossroads drinks that cost whole silvers to buy! 😮
As soon as I switched factions I became a raider.
I have raided in Wrath and all through Cataclysm.
When Cataclysm Dragon Soul came out I became a Guild Officer.
I raided through the Pandaria xpac as a Disc Priest.
I’ve entered the WoD xpac clutching my bow determined to return to a hunter wonderland.
I had a break for most of Legion because I worked far far too hard on the whole IT career segue and gave myself RSI.
It took me another year to realise you can’t have “full-body-RSI” and seek proper medical attention.
I am only now dipping my toes back into computer use at home.
I love my guild because they are kind enough to boop my nose like I never left and seem convinced I’m not going to fall on my face because I must still have skillz.
I think I’ll make this my confessions of fail blog.


The names this blog has had in the past:

  • Great Green Hunter
  • Snake in the Grass
  • In honour of the Dog-butt-face (warhammer reference)
  • Reality AFK

    I didn’t realise you were from Australia that’s totally cool. I’ve been following your blog for a little bit and I’m really liking the new one so far (and the name lol). I’m interested to hear what it’s like on the Alliance side as I have yet to roll one, I have an 80 orc hunter (she’s my main) 80 shaman, 66 warrior, 67 mage and a baby kitty/druid at 22. I’m too stubborn to venture over the fence, Horde pride and all so I’ll be waiting on the edge of my seat to hear about your adventures. 😀

    What a blog name hey – my sense of humour leads me in odd directions I would reckon *cheers for the vote. Did you know the alliance have a whole little beer garden tucked out behind their inn in Dalaran? O_O I’ll post photos!

    Here is hoping I can keep it entertaining ^_^
