Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

And What's More

A little box from Sony just arrived at my door.  That was quick.

It turns out that the regular (as opposed to budget Classic) loops come in rather nice jewel cases.  It actually makes me miss physical packaging for music.  And games.  And stuff.  Not DVDs so much; DVD cases aren't pretty or well-designed, and I have twenty of them on my desk as it is.

Electronic Arts Tech Support

Is actually pretty darn good.

I was expecting to post a mild rant (mild because I got into the problem myself, rant because they set things up so it was impossible to get myself out of it).*

But instead they gave me a freebie that solves the problem.  Not quite 100% the way I'd like it solved, but that's just my OCD; it solves the problem.

So, well done Electronic Arts.

* Relating to one-use untransferable DLC codes, saved games that lock unless you have all the necessary DLC activated, the fact that you can't buy the same game on Steam twice even if you wanted to, and that with their purchase of Bioware I now have multiple EA accounts.

Ready Please Mister Music!

Okay, looks like I'm going to have to either write some more music or wallow in guilt.  Sony Creative Software is going download only, so they're clearing out their stock of loops on physical media at 75% off.

I thought that the delivery charges to Australia would be prohibitive, but I guess CDs and DVDs in cardboard sleeves don't cost much to ship, because it's a flat $30 for FedEx Priority shipping.

So I went through the sale catalog, ticked just about everything I had ever wanted to buy but couldn't quite justify previously, and ordered the whole lot.  Whee!

Should land here late next week, which is perfect.
