Once again, amidst all the arguing currently going on in IRC (usual stuff... people who can't take a joke and people who can't drop a matter), another Monday comes to a close. I for one and very thankful that it's over. I'll feel the same way about tomorrow too as Wednesday is Canada Day. Woo!
bushofghosts, I feel your pain
. The whole regional thing MS has going with their XBL accounts and points is total bullshit, and haven't been able to get a straight answer from them yet as to why they do it. Thankfully I was able to (on the advice of MS support) to get ahold of the seller and get my refund since it doesn't really say anywhere that I can't use it. Still though. :(
And on a final note before collapsing to bed, and I'm going to be very polite here, SilverDragon1979 is frankly just wrong
and really needs to remove the retro-goggles. Not to say the old days sucked as they were pretty awesome too, but I do not believe for one second that the quality of the community or the cblogs has gone down. Just because you don't know the frequent/good/bad cbloggers anymore doesn't mean they aren't as good.

S- A good friend did the same thing with FFXII: hated it at first, but played it awhile later and now loves it
E- I think it's worth losing a dtoid panel at SGC if we get sexual favours from uncle Jimmles

S- HA! megaStryke's mall pictures find their way into the US News!

R- Might've been fail, but those are some awesome pictures
S- I honestly think the cblogs are as good as ever... just the faces keep changing. This one is questionable though :P
F- Sorry, but when you ask what is an acceptable cblog then follow it up with one that you didn't even bother to proofread...
F- Yeah, please stop directing this stuff to the forums. This wouldn't cut it there either
