All us folks living in Gauteng are being rained out like crazy, but whether or not that’s a good thing all depends on the individual now doesn’t it.

While everyone appreciates a clear, beautiful day spent running around naked in their complex sprinklers, I think it’s safe to say that gamers love the rain more than any other kind of people. There’s nothing quite like sitting enjoying some good gaming with a heavy downpour outside the window. We all know what it feels like… well… except for people who live in Cape Town. That stuff you call rain is more like falling fog.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were running around in the rain wearing umbrella hats and nothing else.
