Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I must admit I didn't put 2+2 together when I was awarded the most prestigious of awards, the coveted "Fear the Pink Mist" award. It popped up and of course I said, "What the ..... ?" Scratches head. I tucked that away and figured I'd look it up later.
So I was checking out my friends progress at http://www.bungie.net/Stats/LiveFriends.aspx then decided to look back over my stuff. I noticed the glorious pink badge and the description. KEWL !!!
Now I'll be trying to earn more of those badges. I like the Used Car Salesman award as well. This is what makes the game, Halo 3, really great. Not only is the gameplay fun, but look at all of the other stuff surrounding the game. Screenshots, video playback, stats, multiplayer matches, etc.
Can you possibly imagine the sheer amount if data generated each and every day between now and about January 3rd when everyone goes back to school? It's a SQL Server dream or nightmare (depending on your responsibilities).
I know this is an achievement, not a badge. It's called artistic license folks.
