Finished the 2nd Game of Thrones book last night. So far, so good..then I surf around today and find out that Book 4 is overdue (was originally due out fall 2002).. Have I gotten sucked into another Wheel of Time saga ? *smacks myself on the forehead for succumbing to another series*

I know it, I've been bitten by it, but I'm still putting off the upgrade.. there is a special place reserved in hell for being this lazy (as several people keep reminding me)
Going to play Colin McRae 2 with a few friends tonight.. been almost 2 years since we played last
