Welcome to your Thursday Loading... You can read previously enjoyed editions of Loading... in the blog archive. (For the navigation impaired that means you click the link and then look in the right menu.)
The 483rd edition of Loading... is brought to you by Guild Portal.
Now on to your regularly scheduled program.
Loading... remains short and sour, much like the denizens at the slot machines here in Vegas. There will probably be no Loading... on Friday unless I can't sleep on the red-eye flight home.
As a gift I give you these gems in place of my normal drivel.
