It's like a gaming Meyers-Briggs, kinda. I love this stuff. I spend altogether too much time thinking about my relationship to games and the meaning of gaming, I guess.

OK, this FFXIV expac is the jankiest damn upgrade process I've been through. And I'm not even sure I'm done.

ALSO: My main character is now not listed in my Lodestone or Mog Station accounts. I assume this has to do with the expac, but I'm getting kind of cranky about how involved this seems to be!

This is my cat, Omar. I guess he became my ex's cat after the divorce, but still....

My ex emailed me this photo after he had to put Omar to sleep.

I don't understand why Square Enix would send me this email on March 10. It just seems mean. #ffxiv   #tooslow

Funny enough Daniel, in the decades that email has existed, I've only ever had this issue from private email hosts and Square Enix. This is the 3rd time I've had this issue with Square Enix in the past 5 years.

Once upon a time, I was young and irresponsible. I'm neither of those things anymore, but I suddenly have a scavenger trying to collect a twenty-year-old debt that was discharged long ago.

It seems like a lot of people don't know much about zombie debt or how to deal with it, so I pass this page on to you, just in case you were once young and irresponsible, too.
