Okay, so I finally got a hold of someone at Credit Card Services. Man, remember when you actually called a company and got a live person right away? What? You don't remember? Well.. Okay... Neither do I. Anyway, I explained what happened and asked them if there was something wrong with my account that I wasn't aware of. And they said, no that it was probably just the terminal. They suggested that I try using the card at a couple of different terminals and if I still had a problem to call back and they'd send out a new card.

So I did. And it was fine. It's weird the the other cards worked at that one terminal but not the credit card but I'm glad there is nothing wrong with the card itself. Doesn't solve the problem of what to do about the rent, but ... see title.

There seems to be a new thing in games these days. A thing where instead of clearing a room, a tower, a dungeon, a whatever and that's the end of it, they keep sending you back and sending you back and SENDING YOU BACK!!! I HATE THAT.

I'm sorry but in REALITY - if adventuring can be based in reality - if I'm in dungeon, you can bet your sweet patchooti I will acquire every single thing of use in the room THE FIRST TIME AROUND! ALSO! If I'm being chased by a homicidal maniac, I am not going to not escape through the window just because I don't have the SUGGESTED proper tool for the damn job. I will BREAK the window with a WRENCH if I don't have a HAMMER, OMG!

The other thing I've noticed and hate in these games is the mousing. If you don't click on something JUST SO, the game refuses to recognize that you've touched the object. So you end up spending five minutes trying to find the exact angle at which the click with register.

If I find the person who's brilliant ideas started this I will stuff him in a room from which he can only endlessly escape.
