Join the Lord of the Rings Online Stress Test:
I got an email this weekend inviting me to "Join the Lord of the Rings Online Stress Test." Does that sound like spam to you? Well basically it isn't, but it's an email title that's wonderfully confusing. Unless you realize at once what it means. I respectfully declined this offer. The email came from Gamespot, and they want people to help them test the ability of their new Tolkienish MMORPG to handle large numbers of players. Thus: Stress test.
