I haven't really played many MMOs.  I do enjoy playing WoW.  I have not played on the real servers yet though.  When I get my new laptop I'll probably start doing that.  Also I do intend to play EVE at some point.

Did you ever work at Convergys? I used to talk to a guy from Brandon online, worked at Convergys (he was somehow related to Battle.net, but I forget how)

No, but my mom worked there.  Convergys is not going to be in Brandon anymore.  I forgot why.

I just don't like Pepsi products that much (Mountain Dew is an abomination). And yes, this started with your post. :P

Also, Dr. Pepper is not a Pepsi product. In Canada, though, PepsiCo owns the distribution rights. Next to the deliciousness that is Dr. Pepper, my favorite thing about Dr. Pepper is that it can be found almost everywhere I eat. And if it's not available, there's Mr. Pibb that is pretty similar. The only sad part is I don't drink that much soda/pop anymore. :(
you have horrible taste in beverages

[Mountain Dew]

Use: Instantly restores 100 energy or 100% of base mana, but permanently decreases your total HP by 5. No global cooldown.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

Hello.  My name is Lukas.  I have a passion for programming, playing games, and learning new things.  My life revolves around computers.  I currently do lots of random web design & development using HTML, CSS, javascript, ajax, PHP, and MySQL. I also know C++, and C#, and I am new to Python, Java.  I'm new to linux;  Using Ubuntu 6.10 and 8.04. I look forward increasing my intelligence points, and possibly share some as-well. I plan to be around x86labs IRC in my spare time and will enjoy being active in the forums. My goal is to get through university successfully, and major in computer science/programming.

I say Slackware over Ubuntu! DOWN WITH UBUNTU

Eh, Linux is Linux. Linux users need to give up the animosity and to save their hatred for something worthy, like Windows. :)

Down with proper infinitives!

[edit] Upon close inspection that sentence is proper either way, so just down with infinitives in general.

Haha, I actually went back and added that, because I don't think it's right without:

(Linux users need)
(to give up the animosity)
(and)
(to save their hatred)
(for)
....

Because the first clause starts with a "to", I think the second should also. *shrug* whatever. :P

It does indeed change the meaning to something ambiguous :P

The other way is less ambiguous, but not necessarily more correct.
But you can't say "Linux users save their hatred", so that doesn't make sense.

Obviously; why else would I have edited 17 seconds before you posted?

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.
