    Hearthstone open beta

    ... is now open!

    No wait, that's not the word.

    The word is ASS.

    Step 1. Download the client installer.

    Step 2. The installer connects to the server, or at least tries to, overnight during which it just stops several times.

    Step 3. Realize the installer is for the Battle.net unified launcher, and not Hearthstone as such.

    Step 4. Install the Battle.net unified launcher. This may take a few hours, even after it's been downloaded as such, it's still just slow.

    Step 4. Install Hearthstone. Wait for the app to crash a couple of times, wait for it to verify various stuff, then wait for the download to start.

    Step 5. Wait for the download to finish. It is pretty quick actually, unless it just crashes.

    Step 6. ASS

    And no, I still have no compassion for the people bitching about EA servers.

    Word opening files as Document1, Document2

    This was the ticket. The .docx extension was associated with a word document template file type.

    I used Nirsoft's File Types Manager software to correct this and now everything works fine.

    That is, I open the document itself (not two copies or one copy), for reading or editing, if I:

    • Double-click on the file which I usually do
    • Right-click on the file and pick "open with > Word"
    • Right-click on the file and pick "open"

    Prior to your help and my fixing it, only the third option above worked.

    Big thanks.
