Amazon Love

Nothing breeds customer loyalty for me better than free money. I just got this delightful email from Amazon:

You are receiving this e-mail due to your purchase of an HD DVD player from before February 23, 2008. As you may know, manufacture of HD DVD players ceased February 23, 2008, and major studios in the U.S. have ceased production of HD DVDs. In recognition of this development, is providing all customers who purchased qualifying HD DVD players a credit for $50...

This certainly eases the pain of having bought one of the devices on the losing side of the format war (which may still turn out to have more than one loser...).

Kudos to you, Amazon.

Official Scorched Earth T-Shirts

Thanks to the mad design skills of my friend Richard, I'm happy to introduce the first ever Official Scorched Earth T-Shirt.

Echoing a popular sentiment, this all-black classic features an exploding funky bomb and the slacker slogan

I wasted my education playing Scorched Earth

(also available in military green, naturally)

This shirt is now available at the Official Scorched Earth Cafe Press Store. If you have ideas for shirts you'd like to see, let me know in the comments. We have a few other ideas, but we'd like to know what you want to wear.

P.S. As an official Scorched Earth product, you are hereby absolved from any guilt of having never registered your copy of Scorch, once you buy a shirt. Doesn't that make you feel better? :^)
