Mar 6th 2010 2:41PM I know the author was just being cute, but put me in the group that loved running MC. Back when the game was so much simpler if you wanted to raid, I would get up every Saturday morning, go to the store and buy a coffee and 2 bagels, and be back at the house in time for 11AM invites, and then spend my Saturday afternoon with 39 of my closest friends.
It was so nice to only raid 1 day a week, instead of having to put 5 nights a week into content and racing to get all your gear just to have it be outdated before you complete your set.

The Doctor did not marry Queen Elizabeth. He said he married someone called "The Good Queen Bess," whoever that is.

There wasn't a national debt when President Clinton left office? are you serious? In September 2000, 2 months before President Bush would be elected, the national debt was $5,674,178,209,886.86.
We've been running a deficit in this country for 60 years and have had a national debt since 1791. If you "were an honest and good citizen who cared" you would be better informed. Get your facts straight.
Aug 30th 2009 11:57AM Joyce are you serious? There was no debt when Clinton left office? That is crazy talk. We've been running a deficit in this country for 60 years.
The national debt in Sept 2000, before Bush was elected, was $5,674,178,209,886.86. It doubled over the last ten years, but their certainly was a national debt long before Bush was President.
If you were a "an honest and good citizen who cared," you would be better informed. Please get your facts straight.

You'll see here that RR had problems before the funding cuts in 2005. It wasn't Bush's fault. The program became to expensive and the private companies that used to fund it no longer wanted to.
Aug 29th 2009 3:48PM I did a google search to try and find out who pays for Reading Rainbow, and they were having funding problems all the way back in 2003.
I don't see how the DoE's change in direction is responsible for this problem. PBS, the station and CoPB don't want to pay for it anymore because it costs to much. How is that George Bush's or the DoE's fault? The show is funded by corporations who no longer want to fund it either. I can't find anything that says The DoE pays any money for it.
The truth is this is one Government funded broadcaster using really poor journalism, trying to blame the boogeyman to drum up funding for a cousin's in TV. You'll notice that the AP and other private media outlet's stories on this didn't fall for that crap.
Just remember the source when you read this story.
Mar 9th 2009 11:24AM Wow what an epic fail of an article.
In the first paragraph there is the quote "ESPN this week reached the one-year mark in its ambitious plan to expand into the feature film biz"
the third paragraph is "This week, the shingle announced the addition of two theatrically targeted biopics."
Reading is fundamental.
Feb 19th 2009 12:51PM The one piece of advice I always give people is to be gemmed and enchanted correctly when you apply, especially if you want to play an over-populated class like mage or rogue. If you want to be a healer, then this stuff doesn't matter as much because guilds always need healers. But we get 3-4 mages applying on the website a week, plus all the ones who inquire via tells, and the 3 we use haven't changed in 6 months. So if you want in, you really have to stand out.
If I click on your armory link and see that you have +3 weapon dmg on your spell dmg sword, you are out automatically. I don't care how amazing you are, that says to me you are a moron, and you don't take being a top end raider seriously enough to put in a good application. Same with gems, if you are a mage and you have 100 hit, and then you are gemmed for haste instead of hit, forget it.
And the answer is always "well I was waiting to get better gear until I bought good gems/enchants." I've heard it 100 times. I understand that, but sometimes you have to spend a little to get a lot. You have to stand out, like I said. We have the pick of the litter as far as people go, there are only 2-3 guilds as good as us, so lots of people in guilds below us are fighting for the limited spots in those 2-3 guilds. So you figure there are 50 mages or more fighting for 12-15 spots. Plus all the people who are willing to server transfer now.
So spend that thousand gold and be hit capped and enchanted. It will be well worth it in the end. That is my #1 advice.
