Hooking up Brazil with World Of Warcraft

by ecribbin / September 8, 2006 1:15 AM PDT

Hello, first time poster.

My name if Fernando Garcia and I've been listening to BOL for some time now, (as many people, it started from Molly and Tom's appearance in TWiT).

Yeah, I was the one who pledged pesos for SpectableFest and offered to provide the real, authentic mexican food :), but I digress.

So, I was listening to last friday's episode when Veronica mentioned he has a South American friend (presumably from Brazil) that needs to get a copy of World Of Warcraft.

Maybe I can help. See, I'm mexican, and I work for a global company. I'll be going to Baltimore MD at the end of the month for a project; over there I'll meet a danish colleague that currently lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I'm thinking, if this Brazilian friend happens to live in Sao Paulo, and if someone is willing to ship a copy of World of Warcraft to Baltimore (I hear Veronica thought about it, but it didn't seem feasible to ship all the way to South America); I could give it to this danish friend of mine and ask him to ship it within Sao Paulo, so it reaches its final destination!

If this guy doesn't live in Sao Paulo, but elsewhere in Brazil, perhaps we could even ship it within that nation, and maybe it won't be that more expensive.

So, what you guys think? I think we can totally make this happen!

the credit card problem
by aribeiro2 / September 8, 2006 9:08 AM PDT

if you do, it is very cheap to send things across brazil, with 10-20 dollars you can get the cd to him wherever he is...

but i guess the problem is he has to have an international credit card to sign up for the game... and pay the monthly fees...
and with an international credit card, he wouldn't have problems having the game delivered for him from ----amazon (er.. not amazon anymore...) to his house!

or else he could go to (a kind of ebay in brazil) and buy the game

and don't go to S

I was in Sao Paulo last year, it was an incredible city. The amount of skyscrapers is surreal.

I wish I could've gone to Rio, but it was a business trip; I couldn't find an excuse to head out to the beach Happy

Problem already solved...

Thanks to Lady V and to the people on the forums I was able to download a trial version from the WoW website.

I installed it, played some time and purchased the game from the same site.

I actually wanted to buy the box version, but I couldn't find it in any stores, I found it in some online stores but in some cases the game was too expensive, in others I just didn't trust the store.

Thanks a lot Fernando, next time you're in Sao Paulo I'll take you out to a beer Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
