I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

You sure you wanna let 1 company own your entire internet access?

What the hell do you think having an ISP is like right now?
