On a related note, for the first time (I've started and failed at running ~4 games on various sites...), I've DMed a game online in which the characters actually leveled up. It's been active just over 2 weeks... Most of us have jobs that involve staring at a computer screen most of the day... But hopefully it will be long-running!
Wow, very cool on the long term games, dauph! And happy birthday back to you! My day started off by having to get to work an hour early because I'm slammed (and probably shouldn't be posting on MW). Hopefully your day started off better.
