Crappy stats

Still regretting, see? So I’m looking at my blog’s puny stats. Oddly I get a lot of referrals from brokentoys.org and raphkoster.com. But I couldn’t help but chuckle when I was looking at the search terms… Following in Lum’s footsteps, here are some of the most common and/or esoteric:

Note that we have removed the insurance payout you received for the ship loss. Further details are available in your character’s eve-mail inbox. Thank you for your patience.

17 day turn around. Guess the Free Trial has killed their tech support guys. Feel any better, Bloo?

I’ve died

Which means that I now qualify for life.

Earlier today I took a short break from working on hulks, to try and notch up a couple thousand points on MUD1, having lost my character at the rank of Enchanter (it’s a rank, not a class, in MUD1) and his ~25,000 points on Tuesday night when I lost my network connection (The irony of my trip down memory lane being spoiled by a CTHL…)

I’d just about done gathering this and that, when it started to rain (uh, in the game). I had been about to go sailing, but the waters around The Land are lethal when its raining. So I decided to finish one last quest before logging. And then I was dead.
