...I love you all, and I love E2, but I just can't afford to subscribe. Happy noding!

-- the last post of a very well-regarded noder

This was my nightmare: that, in order to keep E2 on the air, the management had to go to a subscription model like Salon or EverQuest. We lost some of our best noders to economics, but at least we didn't lose the site entirely. We had to burn the village in order to save it.

When I woke up, I did three things:

  1. I thanked God that it was, so far, a dream.
  2. I noded my dream.
  3. I put twenty bucks in the donation box.

My other dream was that I was sorely tempted by Ms. Pac-Man machines in a light wood cabinet, whitewashed, for $99. I went further back into the collection and saw OutRun and Galaga, but alas, no Discs of Tron. But that wasn't the important dream of the night.
