Yesterday, the City of San Diego officially proclaimed March 16th 2009 to be "Sony Online Entertainment Day". Presented by City Council member Carl DeMaio, the honor coincide's with Everquest's 10th anniversary and celebrates the company's employment of over 600 San Diegans, their 60+ published titles, and their charitable work in the San Diego community.

Okay, so I've given SOE a lot of crap over the years. But I won't give them too much crap over getting a day dedicated to them in San Diego. Whether you like SOE or not, you can't deny the number of people they employ, the amount of money they bring into San Diego, and the massive amounts of charitable work and money they contribute to the San Diego community. So yeah, kudos SOE. And for those of you that take issue with this honor, try to derive solace in the fact that it's only one day. It's not a yearly thing.
The question left infront of us now, with just under a week to go, what will you do on SOE Day?
My plan is to fire up EQ again, and see what's what. I doubt I'll play Vhah much as the re-learning curve is ridiculously steep. I've been away for a long while; so, it may be easier to just start a new character and ride the day out like that.
