    Diet Coke > Diet Pepsi, imo. Growing up in a household with a type 1 diabetic father, I became a diet drink aficionado. Diet Pepsi has definitely come of age in the past few years, but back in the 80s, diet Pepsi was comparable to Raid or some other aerosol bug spray and I just can't get that out of my head. Now, the diet cherry Pepsi is pretty good, however the cherry Coke Zero is probably the best diet drink around.

    Also, as far as I know, Kroger doesn't own Safeway. I just looked at the Kroger site and it's not one of their listed brands (Ralph's is though).

    Edit: AoC sounds pretty cool. The day/night aspect sounds interesting.

    Tobar, you're 100% correct. Fred Meyer, not Safeway, is owned by Kroger. Fred Meyer is the other grocery store I usually go to, so I got the brands mixed up.

    Fred Meyer!

    Ahh, yes. I'm not too familiar with the Pacific NW, so I wasn't sure what all brands you have out there. I was stationed in CA for a while, so I do remember Safeway. Thanks for the info on AoC. Sounds like it could be a great game, not necessarily a WoW-killer though. Not that I want a WoW-killer. I'm pretty happy with WoW at this stage.

    Fred Meyer, Safeway, Haggen's are all PacNW chains im aware of. Not sure if albertsons is more widespread or not. I can't tell if my stores are usually out of Diet Pepsi cuz i dont check for it, but im pretty sure i see it when im there.

    I usually drink any of the Jones Sodas, a Seattle brand that is getting pretty widespread thru the country. Also drink AW Cream soda, dr pepper, and most variations of nondiet coke. I dont know, diet has always tasted funny to me and i dont really see a need to drink it other then taste.

    To explain the Diet Pepsi soda.

    shelf space is set by contract (probably cant exceed diet cokes space)
    the diet pepsi purchase rate is set by customers
    Restocking rate is set by Stock Boy and his motivation level + the Store managers riding his ass.

    So if diet pepsi is the most popular soda, and the stock boy is a normal american you would expect to routinely find empty shelves and extra cans of pepsi in the back.

    Just for clarity's sake...I'm pretty sure the Conqueror can't actually equip a shield. I think its the only tank class that doesn't use shields.

    I'd have to agree with this. Now, I'm a big fan of the new diet Dr. Pepper flavors as well. I think one is berries and cream and the other is vanilla spice or something odd like that.

    The Jones sodas are pretty good. I had the Thanksgiving Jones gift pack with such wonderful soda flavors as Green Bean Casserole and Turkey with Mashed Potatoes. Never again.

    Correct. They are set up as evasion tanks.

    Guardians are the "bread and butter" tanks and Dark Templar are the AOE tanks.

    Hello.
    I'm experiencing trouble downloading and listening to this podcast.
    The header indicates the length is 48:21, but both the listen and direct download only has a time of about 1:07.

    Is there a problem with the file itself?
    Anyone else experiencing the same issue?
