    Nice article.

    I just came here after typing “Gear Acquisition Syndrome” on Google, in order to know how advance it is in me. I’ve been buying gear the last months, even when I’m not playing at all! (Duh!) My justification: I’ll make the most of that gear when I play again.

    I sincerely hope it’ll be true, because I’m invested a lot. Meanwhile, I keep practicing.
