Does this not work? http://www.swtor.com/buy#optional-game-add-ons

I clicked on the order on Origin button and it seems to work fine...and I believe Origin started shipping to Europe a while ago, though obviously I haven't tried it myself.

That scroll-over says they're out of stock, but previous links given by CSR Droids have re-directed to the main-page of the Origin site.

Edit: Can't seem to find it on the Origin site.

It says "in stock" on that page.

Maybe Mr. Phillip_BW talks to his yellow bathtub duck a lot, to share his security ideas and secrets.
Well, that's one possible scenario.

Having the questions without names might have been better - it wavered over from "joking approach" to "have a cookie while I talk down to you" a little, I thought. That's just me, though. (I'm a grumpy morning person.)




Oink... wait, that's not it.

Well, I do like to picture Mr. Holmes as a big yellow duck now.

Quick, someone do some fan art.

Hm....I'm lost, then.

When I go to the main site, I just search "swtor" and the security key comes up. Maybe try doing a browser cache dump?

This is a legitimate coding strategy.

I for one liked the duck thing. It was a good way to be light-hearted and represent the questions that he obviously takes seriously as is evident in him replying to them. After all, it is better to use a question and attribute it to a random person rather than call out specific angry forum-goers. The duck thing just broke it up and made it easier to stay interested in. Good work, Phillip!

I think the changes are good, as I have always been a little wary of using my email address for things. I use LastPass to type it in for me so I don't have to do it in case I have a keylogger on my system.

Lastly, any person that uses xkcd as an explanation for anything gets serious props in my book!

Okay, but getting serious for a second, we are pretty sure he is pulling all the duck references from the phrase "have your ducks in a row," right? Where else could it be coming from?
