Inane Wanderings
A blog about....well about....something. Really.
assorted thoughts/update
No matter how hard I try, I still manage to play more tanks per day than plays on my own tank. I know I haven't been around as much (see also below), and yes, intellectually I know I don't need any players, but emotionally.....it still doesn't feel good.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do about that.

Gaia wants more and more money for stuff I want less and less. I've finally spent some of the GC I get for running commercials in the background or while I'm in the bathroom watching videos and downloading stupid games to my iphone and deleting them before I sync or anything else free downloads on some of the "would be nice" things, because I just don't want most of this crap they're coming out with.

I miss the old color palette. The current colors - babyshit brown, cement blue, that gawdawful grayed pink sometimes called "ashes of roses" or "post modern (po mo) pink" that looks good on no one, including avatars - are not pleasing to my eye. So even if the over-designed and over-complicated items have a pose or two I'm interested in, the colors are a complete turnoff. I don't want to see that in my header every time I come to Gaia.

Fortunately, I have enough old stuff to make avatars until my eyes bleed.

As for the zOMG "temporary" shut down to "fix problems" that are suddenly "urgent" but I'll bet dimes to donuts that they have been there since day one: my inner bookie is giving even odds that it doesn't come back. Yeah, like they're going to fix anything there. My best guess (and it is that, I have no more infomation than anyone else on this matter) is that it's stopped bringing in enough cash to justify the server time spent on it and this is a lot of smoke and mirrors to avoid the unpleasantness they know is coming when they turn it off.

I hope I'm wrong.

As for my real life, we're in June. June is ALWAYS nuts - there's always a LOT going on, and this year is no exception. It's made worse with the previously mentioned move of the in laws to far too close to us (see previous posts with "update" in the title for more than you ever cared to know about that). So I'm here when I can be, and I'm not a lot of the time. It has less to do with Gaia and lots more to do with the fact that I have a lot to do - and it's fun stuff, too.

July is always like hitting a brick wall because everything suddenly stops. I have lists of things I want to do in July when I have a chance. Assuming the weather doesn't go back to convection oven.
