Well, that was a fun month of playing Dark Age of Camelot. However, like some other randomly chosen businesses on the Net, they don't accept my credit card. Bookstores and flower shops usually do, most others don't. This turned out to be one of the most others.
Perhaps I should try EverQuest now. Or perhaps not.
[EDIT: It could have something to do with the incomprehensible fact that I'm not American. It probably costs extra to check for non-American cards.]
