A real wife would support you in your time of need. Obviously you need to level, work plays secondary role once released.

I think I saw this someplace already but just double checking, early access begins on the 28th, yes?

I asked a popular writer who often wrote about freedom and free markets and asked him what he thought would be the True symbol of 'freedom'.
He answered succinctly:

"Whatever is the opposite of surrender"

Except that countdown clock is apparently a bit buggy. It currently tells me it's going to be at Noon on the 26th for me (that'll be 10am Sydney time). But the official release time that they have announced is Midnight August 25th Pacific Time - which equates to 7pm on the 25th (5pm Sydney time). That's a difference of 17 hours.

So yea. I think the countdown clock is messed up.
