Decateur's Weekly Business Roundup

Hey, all ...whatever.

I know, I know, you've all been wondering where I've been. And no, it isn't because the FSRI fired me or anything. I haven't been writing my weekly column here because I've been living in an alternate world off and on for the last several months.

Why am I spending a lot of time in an alternate world, you may ask? It's because it's way cooler there, and I don't have to stress about stuff like feeling nervous when talking to women ...or getting flack from my mom about finding a steady job. When I'm in my alternate world I can be who I really am, absent the prejudices and constraints that our society imposes on us.

Which brings me to my new column that K.W.A. has permitted me to write this week: The World of Warcraft Weekly Business Roundup.

For everybody under level 30: I'm looking for a strong showing in tin and copper bars this week. I'm looking for tin to ceiling out at 8 gold pieces for a 20 bar buyout (...yes, you heard my right), and for copper to sneak up to 5 gps per 20 bar bundle by mid-afternoon on Friday. But don't hang on too long. Try to dump and take your profit by 6 p.m. because it's all going to tank after that.

After a bit of profit-taking go straight into steel. That's right, I see steel on the move and peaking by Saturday p.m. That's when everybody and their brother is gonna be crafting armor for Saturday night and Sunday instances. Ride that gravy train and cash in. Even if you can't afford a full 20 bar bundle, get your hands on as much as you can and you'll be grinning by the end of the weekend.

As for magical gear ...stay away. If it's as hot near you as it is here, magic and enchanted items are a dud. Wizards hate the heat. This goes for all players--no matter what level.

That's it for now,

KWA and FSRI Reveals official "Glitch" in Speedcat Blogging Software

In an effort to undo any and all misinformation regarding the recent debacle regarding the fecundity of remarks left by KWA and the FSRI, on Speedcat Holydale's latest post (a post posted on his site on this day on July of 2009), the FSRI has decided to articulate an appropriate and legally binding rebuttal. It runs as thus:

Dear Speedcat,
On the part of the FSRI and Karl Wolfbrooks Ager, we wish to extend an apology for any inconvenience this problem in your blogging software might have caused for readers of your daily column. It is never fun to see a comment repeated, let alone a comment as pithy as one generated from our automated blogging post response division. Please remedy this "glitch" at your soonest convenience.

From all of us here at the FSRI,
the best...

(...and we hope you're feeling better after your contraction of the "Wilbur Fugue.")
