I wonder now though with a real life money auction house(if its in WOW too or just Diablo?) if people can actually make money with wow - at least it would be like a real paying job finally lol specially with all the time people invest into it.
This made me think of this “For the Win” book by Cory Doctorow - http://craphound.com/ftw/download/
May be aimed at “young adults” (how old is that, anyway?), but it’s a must-read for anyone living on this planet, I think. Not because it’s about gold farming - it’s about things older than that. I live in Russia and I’m not “well-off” by any means, but this book made me realise there’s two different Third Worlds - mine and theirs. And I’m in the privileged one.
Speaking of games, especially Myst - I bought the “Masterpiece Edition” for my Mom in a sale a couple of days ago, on http://www.gog.com/ - it’s a lovely lovely site for those who prefer “oldschool” gaming. My favourite games of all time are SimCity 2000, Heretic and Daggerfall! (yeah weird mix of genres, but I’m weird like that) I also L.O.V.E.d the original WarCraft back in the 90s, the single player strategy game, before it went online and turned into a MUD - OK it was WarCraft 2 actually, I never got to see the “original original” =D My brother had it on PlayStation. I’d love to buy a PC version now to relive those days, but looks like it’s not available?
...and to the subject of these Kari-names in Nordic Europe… =D

I wonder if there is a “Kari” name in Sweden, Denmark or Iceland?.. If it’s a women’s name there, then it’s one of those distinct demarcation lines between Finland and Scandinavia =D *I do know there’s much more than that, but most people around me don’t…*
