That’s a picture of my WoW character, Frink. For the uninitiated, that’s not what he’s supposed to look like — in general, characters in the game wear, you know, clothes. But this is what he looked like a few weeks back, after someone somehow hijacked my account and stole all Frink’s stuff. Pretty much back to normal at this point, after the Blizzard folks restored Frink’s gear, but was a very weird experience. In case anyone’s interested, getting stolen from in an online world feels pretty much like it does in the real world. You have a sense of being taken advantage of that’s not good at all. 

But so far at least, the “undo” aspect of online makes everything better. Would have been a lot worse with something not undoable…
