So I just went on the Battle.net site to buy myself a copy of Blizzard’s latest game, Starcraft II. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that it’s going to take 68 years before I’ll be able to buy and activate the incredibly popular new title. Apparently “It’s about time” meant it’s about how much time it’ll take before you can activate your new game.
Update: Ok, the queue was grossly miscalculating. I was able to get the game after about 30 minutes. A reasonable amount of time, and I didn’t have to leave the house.
