EQ Traders Corner
{Twitch}, {Twitch}

(Originally posted in September, 2004, this article has made the rounds a few times since then. I'll let you folks do the math on how long it's really been, based on when you read this ... As an FYI, the text on the jacket reads "EQ Traders Corner, Niami DenMother, www.eqtraders.com")

It's been a long 5-1/2 years and a LOT has changed with tradeskills, this site, and my life.

One thing, however, has stayed rather consistent for the last couple of those years. Every time there was a new expansion, and every time Ngreth and I went to a Fan Faire, I could be heard to whimper, sometimes loudly, for a "straightjacket of tradeskilling."

Let's face it, anyone who tries to track this many items, recipes, mobs, drops, forages and so forth for a splinter group of gaming junkies (I resemble that remark!), has got to be a bit crazed.

Regardless of whether I get "paid" in donations, chocolates, heartfelt thanks, or just more spam posts from board trolls, I just keep plugging along, brain often pretzeling during the times when a few thousand new recipes are all released at once. It may be insanity, but it's my insanity of choice.

I never really expected anything to come of my whimpering. After all, the devs have more than enough on their plates without custom-making an item for one demented redhead. I didn't, however, take into account one very devious and determined House Ogre.

Imagine my surprise when I was having an especially annoying fight with over 100 problem entries in the database today, to be handed a lovely gift bag by my grinning hubby. Lo and behold, at long last, I have my very own Straightjacket of Tradeskilling, complete with site name and all.
