    coordinate with me via ICQ or PM here..
    We'll link group events depending on capability..

    HAHA good idea !

    I think I already had my migration situation party last night.
    Am planning to go visit first and only grandbaby over the LaborDay week.

    Anyhow I have not even TRIED to migrate thru the migratation situation for our UO EA MYTHIC accts. at all yet.
    My accts. are *in theory* paid up till, mid Sept on the one,
    & mid to late Sept. on the other 3 till I am to be cc. rebilled which they won't be able to DO unless I can link migrate and swim thru the new system unimpeeded and with success. :sad4:

    So as I was plannin my trip, & thinkin what to pack etc.
    but the only thing that kept poppin up in my mind was

    will my UO EA accts. [be working] when I get back,
    if not, will I ever succeed to migrate,
    with NO issues, should I have TRIED it now when it is still kinda messy and confusing or not workin for some, or wait
    & maybe become shut out of my nearly 14 yr. old Ultima Online Accts. ?
    My high blood pressure don't need STRESS ! :scholar:

    STRESS STRESS !
    ----
    I did come up with some mood music though last night, that I kept playing over and over again regarding our accts. and migration.

    For those whom HAVE successfully migrated their accts.
    and everything is workin ok for them ...go them :)

    The DOORS singin "Break on thru the other side" for the lucky ones, that is.

    For those of us terrified to even TRY that migration yet:
    also the DOORS singing "Riders in the Storm"

    For those whom already got shut out of their UO accts. via this migration, thru not fault of their own:
    The Doors again..."THIS IS THE END" might be a song to play.

    For some of us opting to just LEAVE TOWN on some rl vacation for awhile,
    till this straightens out before we even TRY...
    to migrate accts. thru this,

    BonJovi...song title: living in, " Broken Promised Land !"

    Well them all fit my MOOD last night,
    so, I think I had a migration party of my own, sorta ! :)

    So if anyone can think of songs to fit UO EA acct. migration situation /parties just add ye own tunes to my list above. Or maybe some gamblin songs of letting the chips fall where they may, roll of the dice, sort of songs, might fit some folks' moods, too. :)
    -----
    As for myself, I will be the elderly person, carrying a 3ft. tall stuffed booted pink Energizer Bunny on up to some rl 'FARMVILLE' in Indianna,
    that my one daughter and son in law created up there.

    So ima gonna be visiting too many dogs, cats, goats, a calf, buncha chickens and a grandson whom is gonna be given LOTS of stuffed animals
    which I am takin up there,that been sitting in my home since 95 along with 3 yr. books and a couple of HER prom dresses and IMA willing to pay ' xtra baggage fees' to get some HER stuff out of MY HOME, finally ! Her White Snake, Poison, Scorpion etc. CDs are MINE
    ima not givin em back to her ! rolleyes:

    My trip at this time/timing is sorta my other version
    of a UO EA MYTHIC migration party..
    LEAVE go somewhere rl and do something fun, [out of UO]
    cuz come hell or high water, there is LIFE beyond, UO, anyhow.

    But, *just in case* ....
    I wanted to try to enjoy my trip without worrying about my 4 UO accts.
    and what condition they may become by time I get back..
    sooo I already packed up my 12 yr. vet tele tiles pairs, crystal portals, my fish tanks, myriads of fishbowls killed off all my aquarium fishes to bank the tanks, my beehive, and whatever else I *could fit* into my UO bankvaults, on two shards, IS pretty much now all banked up,
    while I still COULD, log into my ancient UO accts. to do so.
    The rest will maybe all IDOC one fine day on 2 shards,
    if I don't get my accts. *migrated* successfully.

    IF I can migrate with *success* when I get back and get back into UO
    YAY..so be it,
    if not... it'll be an unwanted but forced bon voyage
    from this nearly 14 yr. old nonstop paying UO EA customer
    and my never before shut down 4 main, active accts.

    As to my being able 'to continue' to be an EA/ UO customer,
    into the future, to play UO, guess time will tell, for us all !

    Migration parties are a good idea, or going on a rl trip to GET AWAY,
    to relieve the *stress level* of much of this sorta malfunction junction
    we may find our selves forced into that we didn't want to happen to a game we'd so love to continue to pay for, to continue to play !

    their first word.

    My parents fainted cuz my 'first' word was

    an entire paragraph,
    I stood up on my momma's big box of Tide Detergent,
    like pretending I was some wannabe politican speaking.

    Ooohoh jumps up and down;

    Your song selection made me think of another older bonjovi or some group's song

    " Shot thru the heart ! " *and you're to blame, you gave our accts. managed unmanaged a bad name*

  16. Hail Queen Zen ... music for a partay?

    got one
    [youtube]mEszTzdUMcY[/youtube]

    If I may, gonna "sell it" a bit.

    It has it all, tinge of regret, if past wishes were different, accepts what is as ... what is

    as a video, celebrates our service personnel,
    uniforms in contract, carrying on what has been gone through before
    Old and established performer, re-rolled to "look new",
    *grins*
    Virtually, suspend disbelief and you Can "see it",
    take a moment and "imagine", play a little mind game
    Pause and reflect for a moment ... let the >music< carry you away

    as a video, that's a >classic< video game chic, eye candy for the guys
    and Enormous Weapons of Destruction as a backdrop/stage
    Maintains "proper respect" for the ladies, young or old ... they all get to play
    they even get to lead, Queen Zen, Queen Zhah, Dawn ... poor baby!
    If I could turn back time, I'd write it a different way ...

    @ ludes, dude, if you so choose to just play it once
    there's the moment to acknowledge those what couldn't make it
    those what have fallen, or departed, or even just "disappeared" in some way
    Raise a glass for those, and that what might have been
    If you could turn back time ...

    Raise a glass, but please! don't spill it, sip it all and be refreshed
    If thee would honor me and mine, drink it all and pour another
    I won't be there, coulda been, youngest boy PCSed out of Carson, august 3rd
    I considered, hearing about the gathering, Hunting out an old friend from here
    AesSedai, and doing a Gateing to get him there too,
    but he ain't been around here much anymore,
    and we have never met, in rl or ingame ... o'well
    If we could turn back time ...
    wouldn't need to raise a glass
    To all our Fayled Dhreams, whatever their names or games or lifes really are

    Well! that's how I will imagine and remember it

    Ludes party of Migration, moving on into the future.

    Thank you, Queen Zen, I needed that *grins*

    I believe the song you are thinking about is: "You Give Love A Bad Name" by Bon Jovi. :D One of my favorites!

    From some reason Pink Floyd's "The Wall", Motley Crue's "Shout at the Devil" (EA being the Devil) and Ozzy Ozbourne's "Crazy Train" come to mind.

    How could *I* forget Cher...smacks self !
    I have that song/albumn entirely both on cd and movie cd.

    IF I could turn back time,
    I would be back in UO back when the lost lands first came out,
    and the then young Queen Zen doth found a thief
    whom snuck her bandages out of her backpack.

    To wit the warrior in her/me back in the UO day that is, laughin,
    thinkin that he must be a newb at thievery, seen his name and all that
    when he robbed me of me bandages.
    I quickly pursued that young thief from Delucia bank all the way to the front gate of Delucia and ...
    promptly exterminated the wee learning thief,
    to wit he expired from me speedy arrows, right at the gate were I reconfiscated my 30 bandages from his lil corpsey ! rolleyes::lol:


    Since I also had a thief character,
    I later on doth help that thief to become 'better'
    so he be far less *detectable* doing his rounds of thievery. LOL

    OMG if I could turn back time, there 'might not' even be a trammel.:hahaha:

    SHHHHHHHHH if I could turn back time,
    heck I might be in my 30s-50s in age, again. :):lol:


    Meanwhile, I dun thought up another song or two
    for this here Migration party tonite. :)

    1969 version of [Don't let me down] by them other guys
    called the Beatles.

    or these younger fellas, to the music world,
    singin their song, that I also liked,
    & hopefully we all will not be "walkin alone" in UO anytime soon.

    I could set up my web cam if you would like a pic of me playing Uo in my underwear while throwing back a couple of over-sized glasses of Ketel on the rocks in my favorite official Mcdonalds Shrek glass.


    *note to OP. You should be careful what you ask for lol.
