Wow, this thread got large overnight.
Normally I dont like to feed the trolls but most doctorates can be gained via "distance learning" (although it may be a bit different here in blighty).
I got mine through the University of Manchester. It was a study on the effects of artificial intelligence as a medium of self tuition. The only work I needed to do at the university was a competency interview (two of them) and a few days in attendance for the viva et al.
Took three years in total (after a failed viva) but it was all done "at home". My wife is currently completing her doctorate (some sociology nonsense
) at home too.
Then again, anyone who needs to brag about income loses all respect in my eyes. I earn about $20,000 a year (in US terms) but I own my own house, my kids have grown up and I am the happiest I have ever been.
I do not like battlecruiser etc simply because I cannot be bothered to learn them
I find it very worthy that 3000AD games are released free though.

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
