Cryptic is having a free-play weekend for Star Trek Online. I get it, lots of changes to the game and they want former subscribers to check it out. In fact it is something I ranted years ago that MMO companies should do often. However 3-4 days is horrible. Simple reason. 1-1.5 days wasted finding out about the free weekend and downloading the client. Leaves 1-1.5 days for play. *sigh* At least this time I have my 10Mbit broadband connection. Previously my 350Kbit connection ensured almost 2 days were gone before I could give it a whirl.
