My guess would be the percentage in the US is higher than the UK for non-users of the Internet.

That is true for a lot of areas, but there are some with actual competition. I have an office mate who is able to get high speed DSL from AT&T and cable internet from Comcast. He switches back and forth getting the "new customer" pricing each time. Unfortunately, my house is too far from the CO for DSL worth having. Hence, I am subject to the Comcast monopoly.

Free weekend? I thought this was a F2P game?

I think the article makes that pretty clear. However, since their lobbyists are lining pockets in DC, odds are they'll get credit for the ploy. I'm not sure what the chances are they'll get approval for the merger, but I'd guess at worst it's a coin flip.

You have cable and it's not stable? That seems odd, I take it you are semi-rural?

AT&T and DirectTV are merging. Two companies that need to go out of business. Sweet!
Unlikely to happen in our lifetimes.

Ah, bah to the online requirement especially for single player.
It is stupid and unfortunate. However, if you enjoyed D1 and D2, the game is worth ignoring that problem -- assuming you have a stable internet connection.

Is D3 better or good as D2 and D1? I didn't like its beta.
I'd say other than the on-line requirement, it is as good as D1 and D2 since loot 2.0 and RoS. I waited almost two years to play the game, and it was worth the wait.

I generally like it cooler rather than hotter too, but I'd much rather have mid 60s than 50s. I suspect we'll go straight from this cooler than normal spring to the oppressive summer heat...

I suspect there is currently a global warming trend, though I'm not convinced how desperate the situation is or that the warming is being significantly exacerbated by humans. I've heard/read both that there is unprecedented melting of ice in Antarctica and a huge build up of ice.

I'd love to hear an intelligent, well moderated debate on the subject. That seems unlikely to happen -- people on the extremes of both sides seem to be overstating their cases. I've seen arguments on either side eviscerated.

One quick note, you can use Marquise on your lvl 1 chars. There is no lvl requirement on gems anymore, so find a slotted weapon as quickly as possible and throw a red marquise or higher in it DPS+++ level on master diff or higher.

Edit: ah hell another point. I personally never store anything above flawless imperials in my stash, i always end up using them to reroll rings/amulets. I can't see the point in storing gems above flawless (especially of each color), if you're spending the money making royals and flawless royals you likely have an item you specifically want to put it in anyway.

It would still be nice if Blizzard introduced a "wallet" similar to what ANET did in Guild Wars 2 but include gems.
Yeah, I know I could use the higher level gems on the low level characters, but I don't like to. Just a personal quirk.

You clearly have more gold in D3 than I do. On my "main" I have not yet gotten my gems for my chest and legs up to flawless royals. And even when I do, there are all my other characters. Let alone enough to make all the imperial flawless I would like to have for re-rolls.

$131.50 per credit hour at the local two year Community College, assuming a 15 hour semester, 1 year = $3,945 for tuition alone. A lot cheaper than the 4 year state university, but not "no tuition at all".

Considering the only gems of any value are Marquise gems...? So that's, what, six slots in your stash?
And the five types above it, at least. That's 25 slots. Plus if you want to keep some of the pre-RoS ones when you build new characters..

Let me be a pack rat if I want to. Sell me tabs!

Yeah, even in state isn't cheap. My local state University:

http://admissions.illinois.edu/cost/tuition.html

Residents

Tuition and fees -- 15,602 - 20,606*
Books and supplies -- $1,200
Room and board (10 meals/week) -- $10,848
Other expenses -- $2,500
TOTAL -- 30,150 - 35,154*

Tesla Model S prices (from the web-site):

60 kWh $69,900
85 kWh $79,900
85 kWh Performance $93,400

Prior to rebates.

That said, yeah at those prices they aren't going to replace the combustion engine any time soon. But then Ford's Model T wasn't exactly an every man's car. I will say this -- the Tesla Model S is the first electric car I can say I would actually drive if I could buy it.

I'll give it some points there too, the stash is pretty annoying in D3 with 7,000 different unique crafting materials. Allegedly they are going to remove all crafting materials from the regular inventory in an upcoming patch though.
I hope they do the same for gems. Crafting mats and gems take up almost an entire tab for me currently. And make gems auto pickup like gold does, even better -- make that a toggle setting in the options.
