Out of the Blue

Happy birthday DOOM! I'm guessing it's as surprising to many of you as it is to me that the grand old game came out ten years ago today, so I won't try to place that in perspective. I will definitely be playing some DOOM today (probably DOOM II actually, it's hard to eschew the double-barrel shotgun) to celebrate the anniversary of what remains one of my very favorite games of all time. On a sort of related note, I see on HomeLAN Fed that some older id games, including Final DOOM, can be purchased online now at the id Software Store.

A couple of folks have written into point out the RSS feed seems to be broken... I'll try and see if I can figure out what's gone wrong with that today.

If he/she can afford that car, then he/she should be able to afford to have it cleaned by professionals.

Sir, I must take issue with that attitude. How far is ok with this mindset?

Say someonone rents their apartment, and that landlord had 1000 rental properities. Would it be fair for someone to conclude that the landlord is doing fine without their rent, so they won't pay?

What if a bunch of the windows in your home were broken out by some malfunctioning device, or heck, by your own horrible judgement. Would you expect someone to look down on you for asking for a way to cheapyly replace them? Hell, you have a house and they have a lousy apartment....the nerve of you trying to save some of what you already have more of...

The person with the paint can garfed, and now they are stuck with the damage. Is some friendly advice on how to help cut his losses so much to ask? Does it offend you that much?...
