For the past month or so, I have been trying to spend every ounce of spare time available on Final Fantasy XIV, but I'm starting to relax a little bit because I realized just how silly it is.

The Daily Evergreen Online, a publication with which I'd had no previous contact, has won my immediate love with this article on Second Life's Knowledge Base. Apparently the author was trying to find a solution to a friend's avatar problem and got distracted by the tempting, low-hanging fruits on of...
