Can’t believe the weekend is coming to a close, back to another boring week of work!  It pays well though, and that’s the most important part!  I have a lot on my mind – about this site and my life in general, so let me get to writing!

Site wise, I can’t believe Luke’s little post about his desktop stirred up quite the controversy, one of our most commented posts 😛  Anyhow, I can’t stress hard enough that this site is not limited to strictly Sims – it can be everything and anything that I want (and allow for them) to post.  I like his new desktop, I’m a sucker for seeing how others have theirs laid out.  Mine personally has no icons, I use ObjectDock instead for all of my needs.  If I had a touchscreen monitor, I’d end up doing exactly what he did!  So, let me make this clear – if you see a post that you may not find of your interest, just skip it and scroll on down 🙂  It’s that simple.  This site isn’t meant to stand out of the rest, we’re just another fansite – we just want to share our normal human side and not just be robots programmed to sell and advertise EA games.

Let’s see….The poll – not planning on changing it this week, will have one ready for next week!  Oh, and thanks for the tip about our forums being down.  It appears that the latest PHP update broken them.  I’ve let our tech guru, ManagerJosh know about this so hopefully it’ll re-appear soon!

One last comment about the site for I touch on a few personal things.  This summer looks like it’s going to be a busy one, so I think I may be on the lookout for a new recruit.  I already have one in mind (I’m looking at you, Simillion) but if anyone else is interested (possible someone who is good at creating custom content or knows many of the sites that are high quality and would like to feature some downloads) then please email me.  Familiarity with WordPress is required!

Now to the personal matters.  As I mentioned, this summer is going to be a very busy one!  I’ve decided it’s time to move out of my old folks place (I’m 23, and no, I don’t live in the basement or attic – not a total loser!) and find a home for myself.  Problem is, I need a good chunk for a downpayment.  It’s kind of a spur of the moment thing, and I know that’s not a good idea in terms of wanting to buy a house, but I feel like the sooner, the better.  So, considering that I’ll be needing money, I’ll be going thru my room selling a lot of my collectibles that I have on Ebay.  Look forward to seeing some posts hawking my stuff in the coming weeks.  If anyone is interested in Star Wars, Nintendo and model cars/collectibles then keep an eye out!  And no, my EA/Sims stuff is off limits!

I’ve also been considering if it would be a good idea to put up a donation button but my morals are getting to me.  I can’t help but to think if I could somehow get 4,000 visitors to each Paypal $1 that’d be sweet.  I’m not going to place one up just yet, rather I want to hear your opinion on this.  Would it be wrong to do?  I mean, it could be a cool campaign ralley “Help Jud buy a House”.  I’ll even give out a free tour via video 😛
