    if you're looking at a desktop CD, i'd encourage you to consider making a custom PC. often far more bang for your buck.
    there are many websites that'll help you put together a build, and there are many suggested builds for various price ranges.

    that would require some setting up from your side though, (or from any techie niece/nephew you have lying around)

    been aching to play DDO again.
    Would love to try out the new content and classes.

    Sadly would require too much money from me, and too much catching up to do :\
    If there's a DDO 2 i'd be super happy to jump on it.

    So, few days ago on Hobbit-side. Trying to force myself to tolerate the unbearable lag just to do some crafting in the Craft Hall. While stacks run, I read & engage in /World chat when it's friendly banter.

    Rat-named character and bear-named character are joking around, and bear-named character makes a comment about doing a 'bear fart'. I pipe in with "Better a bear fart than being in the room when the wife and her cat have a fart war."

    Gets a couple lols and the conversation moves on.

    Few minutes later a GM steps into chat to admonish folks to rein in the offensive banter. Confused, I scrolled back and couldn't find anything remotely offensive other than the mention of farts. So I reply out "You mean fart jokes?" The GM replied and confirmed, then re-explained that we have to be considerate of all players, blah blah. For a fart comment. Not religion, not politics, no nationality bashing, no R/X-ratedness. Farts.

    I called the wife in and had her read both what I'd said and the GM response. I got smacked on the shoulder but she laughed and walked out shaking her head. I tried showing it to the cat and he just glared at me for interrupting his nap - but he's old and crotchety, so that was expected.
    [I do smack myself for not grabbing a screenie. Also, not digging at the GM, they just did what they had to do after someone reported the fart jokes.]

    Farts.


    ....

    At least Russell always listens.




    Guess I should go watch at least a little of the Chokes/Titans game. Got a big $2 bet on it with the daughter.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but people today are so thin-skinned that kids get suspended for using their imagination. My son got written up and was almost suspended in the first grade for a couple days for playing knights & dragons, and pretend slaying dragons during recess. Apparently using the words kill, slay, hunt or fight are ALL inappropriate even when talking about imaginary creatures. Let that sink in.

    Also I'm sure its part of the reason he had such trouble making friends at school because he was afraid to get in trouble for being himself and enjoying the things he likes. Nothing like your teacher, principal and school condemning you for your imaginary play to stifle that impulse summarily.

    Sooner or later they are going to ban certain words from our lexicon altogether and we'll only be able to use euphemisms until those hurt someone's feelings too then we'll have to find all new words.

    Things have been... very bad, for a while.
    several months.

    think this might be it for me, to be honest. i've tried a lot, and i do mean a lot of things. but it's been a month of feeling this way now.
    my family knows how i feel, as do others.

    think it might be time to call it a night.
