Ok, I'll admit there probably isn't much of a point to telling you about this, but I'll do it anyway. Just in case you haven't been by Blizzard's WoW homepage in a while (and why would you, with such an informative site here, right?), it appears that they have announced a free trial for the Burning Crusade expansion. That's right, if you really weren't prepared and haven't purchased the expansion yet, you can now download and try it for free for 10 days.
That said, who among you out there really hasn't purchased the Burning Crusade yet? I don't mean to make a hard sell (personally, I don't care if you buy it or not), but you have an inhuman amount of willpower if you've been reading this site, checking out all this amazing stuff, and have been able to somehow avoid the temptation to go out, to plunk down the cash and head into Outland.
I guess if you're not yet 60, there's not a lot of call for it, but even if you're a lowbie, you'll like the new Draenei and Blood Elf lands. Has anyone out there not taken the plunge yet? And what on Azeroth has kept you from buying it? At any rate, if you want a free trial of what you're missing, Blizzard is ready to offer it to you.
