We're here, we're bored, it's 3AM and we ain't takin' no mediocre theory no how from nobody!

You might not think that gaming involves budgeting and stewardship, but think again, pal.

I can safely say that the Guild Vault records are infinitely more complex than the financials were for my tiny rural Public Library. Hundreds of Guild Members and thousands of items will do that.

Public Relations work is the in game Guild Recruitment.

Funny, Innit?

I get this phone call, as I was on WOW tonight. I was in a good mood, so I answer it in English.

"Hello?"

"Yes, ma'm, we're conducting a survey. We aren't asking for money, and it'll be brief..."

My curiousity was piqued.

"Where do you turn for reliable information?"

This took me very little time, maybe a quarter of a second casting about, before I emphatically responded.

"Librarians!"

Yer man thanked me and hung up.

Join the Guild!

Haven't you always wanted to be * on World of Warcraft?

Come to the dark side!

Vote for Homecoming Queen

Awards, particularly the lifetime achievement flavour, seem to be loaded, risky business. This seems a particularly stinky year for those particularly sticky awards. The people that have the dubious honour of sitting these committees have my sympathy as well as my scorn. In a very inclusive field, why do we feel the need to have exclusive awards?

Like pornography, we tend to know who deserves one of those jobbies when we see them. Something resonates in us, and we think "Yeah, they deserve it."

I'd love to see the feelings set aside for substance.

Go On With Your Bad Selves, Pratt Students!

This is a How Not To on website design:

It serves to spotlight how awful a lot of our stuff is, but more importantly, how one might improve things in future. I must say (and I really, really, hoped against hope I'd never have to) that I think the Pratt site trumps ALA's in terms of confusion.
