    It never runs well in windowed mode for me, personally, and I don't really know why. It doesn't work that well when I window in and out using alt+tab, either. Seems as though there is always a chance that the program will crash. Luckily I generally don't do anything that requires that I tab in and out of the program repeatedly.

    Anyway, my point is that windowed mode seems dicey - I'm not sure if that's just my experience. I would never really trust it while in a instance/raid - I can't afford to have it lag, crash, skip, etc.

    Yes, I raid in windowed mode too (as minstrel level 60 in Moria) and never had a problem due to windowed mode. Also, in order to hear when out of the window I just open up LOTRO Midi Player, and can hear discussion and any game sounds no matter what I do on the desktop. My rig is not the perfect high-end gaming machine either. Also play windowed on my laptop as well.

    One thing I make sure to do religiously is a weekly defrag.

    Ales and Tales is at the Bird and Baby this eve at 1030pm. Also, be prepared to spin a Tall Tale for the nights festivities. Tell us a zinger, or a true tale we simply cannot believe.

    Perhaps you could tell us a tall tale about a flight that didn't get delayed?

    Well, it'd be a whale of a tale. Though, I'm not seeing any reasons for the flight to be delayed. Here's hoping.

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)



    This week Ales and Tales was at Michel Delving at the Bird and Baby. We had a great turnout, with Galenswerd, Harperella, Javelarry, Belindriel, Falibrand, Meribuc, Ashenwoods, Lyondardo, Omsi, Diamiond, Kaleigh, Keptwise, Macalaure, Tarnorili, and Grabesh in attendance. (Apologies if I missed anyone) Tarnorili told some jokes, Javelarry told the tale of a very hungry hobbit, and Lyonardo told a story of the big one that got away. Of course, there was plenty of ale to go around, and Old Winyards seemed quite popular with the crowd, as more and more drunken cheers to "Old Winyards!" periodically made the rounds.

    We had some great music as well, with Keptwise, Macalaure, Omsi, Ashenwoods and Diamiond putting in great performances in the band, as well as solo pieces by Ashenwoods, Belindriel, Galenswerd, and Harperella.

    Next week we have a Ales and Tales first--we will be meeting at the Prancing Pony! See you there!

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)

    Oh, sure, sure, forget only the best-looking Hobbit in attendance. The one whose handsome face and hairy feet had the girls swooning left and right. Oh wait, that was in the dream I had last night. I wondered why Pervinca Took...well, nevermind. One word: Winterberry Ale. Okay, that was two words, but you get my point. I think.

    I certainly showed the boys in the band a few new licks on lute that they'd never seen before. (I spilt some Winterberry Ale on it and that was the only way I knew to get it off.)

    Tarnorili says, 'No mastication?! Crazy!'
    Kaleigh 's eyes widen
    Engilbert says, 'I got a brother like that'
    Grabesh sits down.
    Engilbert laughs.
    Eleowen says, 'How did he do that?'
    Javelarry says, 'See what he'd do is swallow some nails and rocks and things. Anything hard would do.'
    Macalaure says, 'It is good to chew food, otherwise....'

    Macalaure says, 'Are you sure he isn't part Turkey?'
    Niddlebo cries and shakes his head in agreement with the biggun.
    Eleowen giggles.
    Javelarry says, 'Who was always growin the biggest vegetables around.'
    Javelarry says, 'And Hubert was always right there, ready to eat when they got served up.'
    Meribuc says, 'How big were they!?'
    Sophronia drinks to Keptwise's health.
    Javelarry says, 'And since he din't have to chew, he could eat more than any other hobbit.'
    Keptwise begins to smoke.
    Macalaure takes a drink.
    Keptwise begins to smoke.

    Tarnorili says, 'He should go in that pie eating race up on the hill sometime.'

    Omsi takes off his hat.
    Javelarry says, 'Well, one day a Biggun came to the village.'
    Meribuc eyes widen
    Javelarry says, 'He was one of these wizardy types, clad in brown.'
    Tarnorili winks at Sophronia. Interesting.
    Javelarry says, 'And Farmer Toktuk begged him for some seeds, that would make large enough vegetables to stave off Huberts apetite!'
    Galenswerd begins to think this is a tall tale.
    Eleowen sits down again.
    Bowlin chuckles at Galenswerd.
    Grabesh says, 'Him want to grow squashes BIGGUR then house?'
    Meribuc laughs at Galenswerd.
    Niddlebo says, 'So far it all seems plausible.'
    Javelarry says, 'The wizard thought a bit, and gave the farmer a single golden seed.'
    Engilbert says, 'Did he ask for a cow in trade?'
    Diamiond giggles uncontrollably at Javelarry.
    Javelarry says, 'Twas a pumpkin seed, of a golden luster and larger than any that had been seen in those parts.'
    Engilbert says, 'I heard a story 'bout a giant once'
    Engilbert grins
    Ashenwoods says, 'I think this tale's a bit taller than Larry'
    Falibrand says, 'Mmmm.. pumpkin....'
    Falibrand has a little bite to eat.
    Tarnorili smirks
    Javelarry says, 'Well, the farmer bid him good day and planted the seed, and wouldn't you know it!'
    Grabesh says, 'Ooooh. Can you imagine a pumkin pie big 'nuff to swim in?'
    Sophronia sits with Tarnorili.
    Meribuc says, 'They didn't get baked in a pie, I hope!'
    Javelarry says, 'It grew a bigger pumpkin than any had ever seen!'
    Javelarry says, 'Was bigger than the town hole in Michel Delving!'
    Engilbert says, 'Did they make a waggon out o' it?'
    Grabesh says, 'Probly smell'd bettur too!'
    Falibrand grows faint thinkin' of the pies that would make....
    Macalaure says, 'That is indeed a large pumpkin'
    Javelarry says, 'And the farmer thought this would take care of Huberts hunger once and for all!'
    Engilbert says, 'I heard 'bout a princess what rode in a pumpkin'
    Javelarry says, 'And offered it to him as a gift.'
    Falibrand says, 'I think yer listenin' to the wrong folk, Engilbert!'
    Engilbert says, 'Mebbe I am'
    Lyonardo grins.
    Engilbert shrugs.
    Javelarry says, 'Hubert quivered with delight at the sight of this enormous pumpkin!'
    Harperella sits down.
    Galenswerd takes a drink.
    Niddlebo says, 'He said quivered...'
    Galenswerd begins to smoke with Javelarry.
    Meribuc says, 'Uh, no food there is, that can squelch the appetite of any proper Hobbit'
    Javelarry says, 'And started in on it right away!'
    Grabesh says, '. . eww? quivery fat hobbits . .'
    Lyonardo laughs out loud at Niddlebo.
    Omsi pulls a pipe from his bag and begins to smoke.
    Falibrand says, 'Raw?!!'
    Javelarry says, 'Carving off bits and roasting them up on a bonfire he made'
    Falibrand shivers for a moment.
    Falibrand says, 'Oh... that's ok, then.'
    Javelarry says, 'And always eating eating eating!'
    Omsi says, 'At least he had the common sense to roast it first.'
    Macalaure sits down.
    Grabesh says, 'Oooh! That sounds good.'
    Niddlebo says, 'Youd think he would take that pumpkin pie north to chilled areas. It is best served chilled I have heard.'
    Meribuc says, 'I'm hungry...'
    Javelarry says, 'Eating the seeds whole! And his belly swelled and stretched and distended!'
    Grabesh 's tummy rumbles.
    Engilbert says, 'Me, too'
    Lyonardo rubs his belly.
    Eleowen says, 'Oh no!'
    Niddlebo rubs his belly like the rest and pats his head at the same time.
    Grabesh says, 'Him eat th' seeds whole? Nuuu!'
    Ashenwoods says, 'POP goes the Hobbit'
    Javelarry says, 'Until there was no hobbit but arms and legs and head off an enormous belly!'
    Galenswerd wonders at a Hobbit's use of the word distended.
    Engilbert says, 'It's about time this story distended'
    Meribuc laughs at Niddlebo.
    Engilbert laughs.
    Javelarry says, 'Well, they dint know what to do with him in that state.'
    Omsi says, 'Roll 'im down the hill above Hobbiton!'
    Javelarry says, 'But he'd left just a bit of the pumpkin.'
    Grabesh snerks at Omsi.
    Javelarry says, 'And so they baked it into a pie.'
    Javelarry says, 'A golden pumpkin pie.'
    Javelarry says, 'And the hobbits still out there. Out on the green.'
    Niddlebo says, 'Also known affectionately as...the Great Pumpkin.'
    Grabesh says, 'Nuuu! Is cursed pumkin! Must be cursed pie.'

    Meribuc sits down.
    Periadoc waves to everyone.
    Tarnorili agrees with Omsi

    Kaleigh smiles
    Engilbert begins to smoke.
    Periadoc says, 'HAIL ALL'
    Bowlin says, 'Lets let Lyonardo tell his story before more music.'
    Keptwise waves to Periadoc.
    Omsi says, 'As lovely as the woman's dancin' may be.'
    Tarnorili says, 'Heh, that's the truth.'
    Omsi hails Periadoc.
    Periadoc waves to Omsi.
    Harperella says, 'Please Lyonardo, we are ready.'
    Niddlebo says, 'How deep was the Brandywine?'
    Lyonardo says, 'Around dawn... 'twas quite lovely morn.'
    Periadoc waves to Tarnorili.

    Ashenwoods sits with Javelarry.
    Periadoc begins dancing with Tarnorili.

    Grabesh offers Periadoc a mug.
    Falibrand sits with Lyonardo.
    Tarnorili says, 'Greetings Doc.'
    Omsi grumbles, "First women dancers, now hobbits on tables!"
    Grabesh bows deeply before Periadoc.
    Periadoc thanks Grabesh heartily for her help!

    Periadoc says, 'Hullo Tarn'
    Bowlin throws a bag at Periadoc to get him to sit
    Omsi thanks Tarnorili heartily for his help!
    Tarnorili grins

    Niddlebo whispers...just resting comfortably ma'am.
    Periadoc ducks
    Tarnorili says, 'Thanks Doc, we couldn't see a darn thing.'
    Sophronia listens to Lyonardo.
    Lyonardo says, 'the feller was near six feet tall!'
    Borley 's eyes widen.
    Engilbert says, 'Pardon me, Mr. Dwarf, why to you have a plow on yer back?'
    Periadoc says, 'Except my magnificence'
    Engilbert pokes Bowlin. Hey!
    Grabesh says, 'Dat not a goblin, dat an orc!'

    Lyonardo says, 'I watched as the great gobbie reached in the water an pulled out a seven feets sturgeon!'
    Harperella says, 'Seven feet!'
    Sophronia grins at Lyonardo.
    Grabesh drools at the thought of a fish that big.

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)

    Fortunately, there's always plenty of ale to drink to wash down all that

    I would love to hear the above dialogue acted out or narrated in an audio podcast.

    Fun times.

    Re: ALES & TALES (every Monday!)

    Ales and Tales will be held this week in Bree at the Prancing Pony. Many are bound to find adventure and fame eastward in dim Mirkwood, so this week we are looking for tales of adventure and heroism. See you there at 1030 EST.

    Ales and Tales
    We had a great turnout for Ales and Tales last night. Here are a few of the characters who showed up:
    Ashenwoods, Beacher, Olyver, Forthogar, Elwea, Jerett, Eleowen, Sophronia, Meadolarke, Lyonardo, Mordagan, Algrogo, Meribuc, Javelarry, Decatur, Tarnorili, Astleigh, Keptwise, Thored, Kayleigh, Sayenith, Kadren, Diamiond, Valararaein, Omsi, Saerwena, Eitheliell, Aralinne, Alerik, Mapleros, Haydyn, Sommer, Sammus, and apologies if I missed anyone!

    First we had a tune from Omsi the Dwarf and a bit of dance. Master Keptwise and company put on some great dance tunes. Tarnolili told a dwarven joke (at the expense of the elves). Thored recited an ancient poem of Khazad Dum. Beacher told a fairy tale. Harperella recited a poem about the Silithar. Finally, we rounded out the night with a great rendition of the Breetown Blues and a round of hearty toasts!

    In the end, we left the pub for some adventuring. Rochsul the captain had last ended up drunk at the top of the giant's needle. We all joined him in the Misty Mountains, then had to figure out how to get down again. Finally we all jumped. There was only one casualty--Omsi the dwarf. It seems that Thored had landed on his head.

    Good luck in Mirkwood everyone, and next weeks Ales and Tales is in Gondamon!

    Did you do something to those screenshots Val? They're really good looking.

    Do the tweens back in The Shire know that Lyonardo was there dancing with Harp and all those other ladies?! Better not tell them, they'll be heart-broken. And if you're ever wondering what some bloke named 'Santa Clause' does in his spare time, just look at the stage.
