Well, here is a first. I do not use Internet Exploder except when downloading these patches. While I was downloading these latest patches, Exploder remains open - cannot close - and I got infected with a virus

Glad I have Firefox

That homebrew air con kit is pretty impressive, but he forgot to include the cost of using ice . Can pile up pretty quick if you have a continuous flow of water going through - defeats the purpse of an air con kit for the poor college student.

I was really tempted to get in to WoW - the ethos was very interesting and while playing Warcraft 3, I had always imagined how much fun it would to get on to the "troop" ground level, instead of the "general" overhead level to see what the game played like.

But the monthly $15 fee and the many problems at launch scared me away. Fortunately school intervened and kept me busy, and HL2 soon made me forget WoW. When I got tired of HL2 DM, I started looking at WoW again, but did not want to make the jump since I was now behind the hardcore players in a way, and the $15 still discouraged.

Fortunately for me, Guild Wars was released just in time

Tax Man at 40 Pecent at all ends of the money movement leaves them 360,000,000 * 0.60 = 216000000.

Don't confuse revenue with profits. There are development and marketing costs, server and bandwith costs. I am sure Blizzard spent a ton of money during the game's long gestation. And you have to pay your employees.

Sure Blizzard is making money, but how much money cannot determined simply by multiplying the monthly fee with the 2 million subscribers. And as someone else mentioned, it is not clear whether the 2 million refers to the total subscribers, or total average monthly subscribers - BIG difference there.

No problem. Just glad the hype is over and the collective press can now move on to the next scandal du jour and focus their feeding frenzy on some other fresh meat.

FWIW, apparently the Jacko jury is in and a verdict will be read at 1:45 PDT.

Sad? I'd say it's quite admirable, actually

Admirable that fans are dedicated enough to make such a patch. Sad that the publisher/developer is not doig their job. And even more sad if this becomes an expectation/trend by developers of their fan base.

You can always leave that guild. But I believe there is a limit to how many times you can switch guilds - so always think it over before you join. Of course if you are happy with the guild you joined, you can stay with them - there is nothing that stops you from partnersing with other guild members in PvE areas.

Honest Question, not trying to start a flame war...

Bought a 9800 Pro AIW. If I were to do it all over again, I would buy another ATI AIW without hesitation. If I were buying a "regular" high-end performance 3d card, it would be a toss up between ATI and NVidia, and the decision would be based on overall performance, not drivers.

Except for when KOTOR1 was initially released and I had some problems running the game, I have not had a single problem in any other game. I did have graphical glitches running a beta Far Cry demo, but not the later ones.

Most MMORPGs wont delete your characters when you stop paying the fee, they just don't let you play.

Then I am mistaken, and corrected. Thanks.

I used to buy games all the time that I got bored of after a week (some more, some less), but let's say one game per month, at $45 (to make the math easier).

That is a highly subjective opinion on games. Just because you think it is shitty does not mean it is the same for everyone else who plays that game. Besides, no one is forcing you to buy a game a month. Unlike in an MMORPG, where you have to keep your subscription going month after month and cannot cancel or you lose your characters that you worked so hard developing/farming.

We'd LOVE to quest with some of the Blue's fans, if you spot us online

I am lvl 12 Ranger/Elementalist finishing up the Ascalon quests, named Tr Gandhi. Drop me a line if you see me and I would be happy to quest with you guys.

I will be on tonight and tomorrow night for sure. And most likely Sunday night.

Mistress Lula (Me/Ne --> very nice combo :))

You know, I have seriously thought about making a character with that combo. I think I will do that tonight. Was not sure whether I would do a Me/Ne or a Mo/Ne combo.

Yeah its real cool to run into invisible walls and be forced in one direction!

But certainly not as cool as having to stand in line near a boss monster spawn point with a few dozen fellow players. That is why most manly MMORPGers like you pay the $15 monthly fee afterall

I know that I'm enjoying a game when my every waking minute i'm thinking about when I'm going to get to play it next, and forming strategies when i'm supposed to be doing other things (like work for instance)

Hi .... my name is Gandhi (Tr Gandhi in GW), and I am a Guildaholic.

I spend my days thinking about GW, when I am not playing it. I spend most of my time at work looking at area maps and quests instead of working.

I spend my time in classes looking at various skills combos my character have to beat the charr, instead of listening to the professor drone on and on.

The first thing I do when I wake up instead of looking at my beautiful wife is to check to see if there were any in-game updates. The last thing I do before I go to sleep instead of kissing my beautiful wife is to relive in my mind the blood thirsty raids quests I just finished playing.

My name is Gandhi (Tr Gandhi in GW) and I am a Guildaholic.



PS - please make sure my wife does not see this

Repair (the mobo failed) cost 350 clams. I'd avoid buying LG fridges if I were you.

I begin to really worry when fridges come with mobos.
