Ok...

Linux sucks...well, not so much Linux as running programs that should be scrapped and are written in COBOL on Linux sucks.

Games Workshop is a bunch of sneaky little bastards. They published a catalog of 90% of their merchandise...the majority of what they SELL at any rate (not a complete listing of everything that's EVER been...over 25 years some molds got destroyed and what not). It really is a nice catalog, weighing in at 1070 pages of full color, high-gloss work. Now, I had convinced myself that I wasn't going to spend $30 on stuff that I could look up online (albeit, sometimes at a severe pain in the ass). However, the other day in World's Best I happened across one of the rare *hardback* catalogs, which were $40. Ended up paying that much for a catalog, but it's just such a gorgeous reference guide, it was worth it. Since a comparable "real" book would have cost closer to $100, I'll lie to myself and say it was a really good buy. Nevermind that the purpose of this book is to separate me from my money.

Again, Mr. Ulanti kicks ass...just letting you know that is a trend that continues.

Finally, I have begun to plumb the depths of my madness with Games Workshop. As many of you know, Mr. U maintains a slowly more accurate toy inventory (think it's at least 2/3-3/4 in now). As it stands...the retail value of my collection currently (which is NOT equal to the price paid, but is the replacement value of) has so far come out to $10,175.50. Now, there are some big items missing off that (for instance, about half of my Space Marines and vast majority of my Imperial Navy and Chaos Warfleet) so that number is closer to $12000 I believe. NOW do you people understand why they will be a mentioned item in my will? They're worth more than my car! Which is probably a sign to start car shopping....

Anyway, I was going to write this big post about political issues...but maybe next time...
