    Rant: GOG please stop tempting me by putting games on my wishlist on sale for super-cheap. I already impulse-bought Sid Meier's Railroads a week ago. :scared:

    I got a notification for Master of Orion 1 & 2 for $2.69.

    Are those games good? They're set in space right? What do you do in the games?

    Master of Orion II is one of the finest space strategy games ever made. Every space 4X game since the mid 90s has been compared to it.

    Rant: Remind me not to post when tired. I posted in the wrong thread and probably confused anyone who saw it. :crazyeye:

    Built a shoe rack. They lied about the dimensions and half the screws were stripped and unusable. Still put it together, and I guess it's better than no rack, but really not feeling like I got my money's worth.

    The pants I bought are too small as well, and the supplier charges for a return. The soap I bought congeals rather than foams, and leaves my hands feeling greasy.

    Amazon customer support has quickly become the worst rather than the best. The latest rep I had was completely incoherent. I am pretty sure they used Google Translate. Even the follow-up "please don't give me a bad review" email was partly incoherent, and that's something that should be almost entirely form text.

    All in all a terrible shopping experience that I regret.

    You should let someone like @MaryKB shop for you. Tell her what you need/want, send her some money and turn her loose.

    It's probably because I cheaped out on all three products.
