Exteel comes to an end

Exteel, a free to play MMO from NC Soft will shut down its servers September 1, 2010.  The statement from the official site reads: "All good things must come to an end Tuesday, July 27, 2010 — NCsoft has made the decision that the Exteel franchise is no longer financially viable. On September 1, 2010 at normal maintenance time, all Exteel servers maintained by NCsoft will shut down permanently. This is a global shutdown, and not based on our server alone.

Updates, or lack thereof

Well, holy hell, it's been a long time since anything has been posted.  A few things can contribute to that.  One being a new full time plus job.  The other being my current subscriptions to three MMORPGs, World of Warcraft, City of Heroes, and Aion.  "Why?", you may ask.  I don't have a good answer.  All three are time sinks for the one thing I don't have much of, time.  I should probably impose a strict schedule for my gaming to allow for regular updates.  But as I've covered before , I feel that gaming isn't something that should fall prey to a schedule.  Gaming is a release, something done to unwind after a long and stress filled day. There is a balance somewhere, I just need to find it.
