    Have any good facepalm pictures?

    I am the coolest guy ever. I just made an Enigma, left it on the ground and exited. :alright:

    Long story:
    Ok, so I didn't actually make the Enigma and drop it, but whatever.

    Doing pit runs with the poisonmancer I realize that while I don't have a Ber, I do have a Jah and found a second Sur just now. Off I go to get the runes and armor. I mule them to the character, save and close gomule. I open D2 again and notice the game is paused. Unfortunately my brain was still in MFO mode, and only vaguely aware of things. I save and exit. A couple of seconds pass, while my mind is trying to catch up and get what I just did, and then I start flailing my arms about, in a desperate effort to turn back time.

    Please post your facepalm pictures now..

    I don't get it.

    EDIT: Did the runes leave then stash when you muled them, but didn't arrive on the character since the game was paused?

    So you did the reversed hotmuling trick? It really should be declared in your trade profile:thumbup: [/sarcasm]

    I have done the exact same thing with Tal`s armor and amulet, but that is nowhere near the wealth you just threw away.

    [email protected]: You are spot on in your edit:)

    That would be a good idea. That way people would know not to loan me anything, or they'll never see it again.
    edit: done.

    @Twoflower: Thanks. No palms here though, will a pine do?

    OT: Do people actually play while their muling program is open?

    Was testing out Didn't know it worked here. Heh, it works for gif's. I'll leave the Avatar one up. :)

    @LD50 - sorry man, that sucks. I've done that too, but not with anything that rare.

    Nowhere near as bad, but I've swung my ethereal HotO more often than I'd care to remember. I used it on a wolf and accidentally left the prebuff switch on.

    I lost a Wisp Projector the very same way, it had a nice roll too. :(

    I'm assuming you couldn't get it from the backups?

    Come on, give us a happy ending here :(

    Ouch, sorry about the loss. Nothing of that magnitude, but I managed to lose a CtA just a couple of weeks ago by throwing it on the ground and forgetting that runewords disapper like white items.

    I backed up all my characters, reformatted the HD, and decided last week to re-install D2. So game gets installed, ATMA too, and I go to Gmail to fetch my characters. They are all there except one, the Lite sorc with the brand-new HotO.

    Re: Have any good facepalm pictures?

    Although not a loss of items, this was still a "facepalm" moment for me; I decided to respec one of my sorcs and try a new build, everything went fine and my skill allocation was looking great, until I was going to assign my hot-keys, F-3 for static field right? Where is SF??? Turns out I forgot to skill SF and more importantly Teleport :doh: This is probably the first and last time I have to use Enigma on a Sorc :wink:

    Re: Have any good facepalm pictures?

    Thanks for the sentiments. This was my first time doing the "reverse-hotmuling", and oh how I wish it would have happened sooner, with something of a bit less value...

    I didn't..

    @maxicek: If you really try, you can maybe see a happy ending in the fact that I no longer have to decide how to use the other Jah :coffee:

    My GoMule makes backups automatically every week. Have you checked the auto backups?

    LOL


    Sorry to hear about that LD50. I once lost stashes and characters but nothing compared to a Ber and Jah.
