MMOs, The Internet and The Perception of Gamers

A post on Wow Insider recently promoted a link a survey asking about addiction to MMORPGs. As I'm not a USA resident I can't answer it, but the comments on the post at WI, were quite revealing.

1. Survey seems to be rather biased and closed
2. 'People' still don't understand that the internet is a tool that can be used for good, not just a procrastination tool or a thing of evil.

Would I say I've been addicted to the internet? Yes. Would I say I've been addicted to Warcraft? Yes. Does it worry me? No. Why not? Well ....

On Boobie and Bottle

In case you didn't guess from the title, this is not a Warcraft post.

On Tuesday 21st February I gave birth. The following is the tale of my progress through the world of feeding this amazing Level 1 Human. I'm sharing it because I recently read this.

I gave birth via C-section and thus wasn't able to have the precious skin-to-skin moment with our little boy until I got into the recovery room. However, he had a clear sucking reflex (he almost took my little finger off!)  and I tried to latch him onto the breast to feed. I didn't succeed.
