||Okay, so I'm not very frugal
Posted on April 29th, 2010
|After uploading the newest version of this website, I started planning the revamp of Background Service's website. I mentioned a few details to mom, who reminded me that at one point the site had one of those features and I ended up removing it. I might or might not bring it back. The fact that I removed it weighs against it though.
During the evening Steam brought up the recent news, as it does every so often. It brings up these alerts to let you know of new games or demos or sales going on. In this case, one of the games I've been debating about picking up at Target has gone on sale. Target wants $60 for it, Steam wants $20. Mind you, I've been pondering buying it for weeks (almost bought it the last few trips), so this was something to jump at.
So I'm now the proud owner of a copy of Guild Wars. The previous MMORPG I tried had a number of problems, and everything I've read about Guild Wars made it sound like it had addressed them. I haven't played it long (it took most of the afternoon and evening to download -- however, unlike the other MMORPG it didn't lock the computer up), but it seems that it has in fact addressed those issues and done so well.
Today's link of the day shows the difference between society and the individual.
