My work day is mostly proofreading and site management -- not so much research into gameplay, just into news about them. So nope, I don't mix games with my work shift. I have bunch of set time-blocks for gaming with my guild, though, and I sneak in my own side-MMOs in between when I can.

The primary perk for me is getting to work from home, not having to buy office clothes, not having to commute, not having to get up at 5am, etc. This job also keeps my brain sharp and has improved my writing almost by accident. My last proofing job wasn't very creative or exciting by comparison. :D

Is the music that starts the Massively podcast an actual song and if so what is the name, who did it?

Yep, it's real! It's called "Vanguard Forward" and it's by Michael Gordon Shapiro (http://www.mikemusic.com/). He has written some impressive game scores, including one of my favorites from Empire Earth.

Ok, I cheated... that's one of the things Shawn always tucks behind the cut on the podcasts! Hehe.

Cool, thanks for info! Heh, I never actually thought to see if it was credited as I usually listen from the home page. Great music!

You're only 3 years old and already you're leagues better than that certain other MMO site . Perhaps you could give some tips to your ailing comrades?

Yeah, I know. I swept the leg there. "Zing" 'n all that.

Heh heh, alright I've had my morning mischief fun. Gotta scaddadle.

EverQuest for me, I think in '99 or 2000. I forget precisely. BBSes and door games were my "online" crack before that. (LORD & TW2000 woot woot)

Congrats Massively! I always enjoy reading this site when I am at work. You all do such a fantastic job! But... I have one VERY important question to ask you.... Cake or Pie? ;)
