Adjusted for cost of entering races. Would you believe that third place, even though it pays out at least 20K gil, makes you lose money? It costs 37,200 gil and two hours of RL time to enter a race. So this will take a while! Total to get to this point: 18 RL hours of "free" racing and 334,800 gil spent to make 569,800 gil for a profit of 235,000 (rounded). This is also 9 days instead of 7.
In other 'things that will take a while' news, Catsoup is finally up and running! He stuffed a few sheep this afternoon, got all eight gobbiebag upgrades, got his aketon (whenever a mule becomes a crafting mule, they get gifted with an aketon), and set off to work! A server-wide lack of yellow globe (fish) has me halted at the moment. :/ Earlier today I picked up the last five stacks on any AH (and the guilds are all out), so... yeah. He's level 12 now (I moved to jellyfish too soon, now he's out of those as well). I don't know why I never before saw it as odd that a craft bottlenecks at so low of a level.
In WoW news, (unsurprisingly) I find I now lack time more than desire to play. I found 45 minutes last night and logged on long enough to kill stuff to get 43, but that was the first time I had been on in three days. :/ I activated my account on 8/11, so I have to decide by 9/10 what I'm going to do. If I can't make time to play a reasonable amount, it makes no sense to keep paying. :/ (Reasonable to me means logging on at least once a day, for at least an hour. Strongly don't know if that's going to happen. It's already bedtime and I haven't finished my FFXI stuff yet, and WoW comes after that... :/ )
