I don't know why you'd want 2 or 3 accounts anyway
I think there are goofy reasons to have them for the summer sale. I'm sure someone will pop in and tell us...

I've been out most of the last two weeks dealing with a family emergency, and I have to say probably one of the best things that happened, was I totally missed this 700+ response topic which I'm guessing has about 50 posts worth reading. Thanks guys!

Looking around the web, it looks like bitcoins are on the way back up, over $200 again on some exchanges -- personally, I think he should dump the other 4/5 and find something a bit more stable.

Mistake to spend any of that. Should have reinvested it into diversified index funds for long term growth. If you get a windfall, never cash out on the principal!
Buying real estate is a long term investment. If anything he was too conservative selling only 1/5 of his bitcoins. As the article states, the value crashed shortly after he rediscovered his bitcoins. He probably would have taken a heavy tax hit, but cashing in the bitcoins at $266 before they crashed to $30 -- would seem to be good planning in my mind. Obviously he didn't know the value would crash, but I would have guessed it was coming...

I would imagine (looks at stats) that Steam is only 20 Million actual accounts. The rest are dupes and 2nd,3rd,4th accounts (see mess that was holiday sale).
I was gonna guess 5 million when you don't count abandoned accounts. Might be higher than that...

I started 4 or 5 weeks after initial release and played through "Rage of the Firelands" in Cataclysm, stopped just before "Dragon Soul". Thought I might come back for MoP, but never did. Miss some of the people, but not the game. I agree I'd like another experience like it, but I don't think it's likely.

I played it for a month or two this summer. It was enjoyable enough that I purchased some additional stash space just to reward them. Not sure I'll pick it up again after release though..

Most people who have problems with Windows 7 systems, are responsible for their own issues. Bad surfing habits. Installing every program without ever looking at install options(hey...let everything run at startup even if you'll never use it! Totally makes your system speedier!)

I've been using my current Win7 installation for years. It's just as fast as ever and I've moved it across at least 3 generations of hardware. I do minimal maintenance apart from a weekly deep malware scan(which never finds anything because I don't install crap) registry clean and general system cleanup.
I agree that 90%+ of the problems are bad user actions. But even experienced users get weird issues sometimes. Just this weekend I had a dll issue pop up relating to using an older version of Office. Now I'm sure something I did caused the problem, but I'm not installing stuff off random websites. In fact, other than Windows updates it's been a while since I installed anything. A Google search shows me it's not an uncommon problem, although in my case the simple solution didn't resolve the problem (doing a System File Check "sfc" scan of the system/registry). I'm not looking forward to my second pass at attempting a fix.

I've made a living working on computers since around 1988 and I have long had a dislike of MS Windows. That said, I have used it as my main OS since the day Quake came out and required it.

I'd be willing to switch to a linux desktop if I could get the same amount of functionality for the same amount of effort. Each time I have investigated the possibilities it didn't seem linux was up to that standard.

Minn. falling on it's face was unexpected but at least 82% of the group was wrong with me. But Tom FREAKING Brady pulling out his 32nd 4th quarter game winning drive screwed me over on my "upset" pick of the Saints. *sigh* Did pick the Steelers though, so that helps. I won't win the week, but I shouldn't move too far up or down the overall standings.

I managed to spend over $8k in one night, though that was due to being in a foreign country and putting the decimal point in the wrong place when I was converting stuff in my head
It was a good night, just not an 8k night...............
Ouch. Is it a good story at least?

I don't know, I would have no problem spending 5 grand on something I really believe in. I just don't really believe in videogames
Right, there are lots of things I might spend $5k on, but would you spend $5k for an evening on the town?
