How can I mitigate or prevent this pain without drastically altering my lifestyle? I understand you are not my doctor. [more inside]

After doing some research, I can't seem to quite find an answer to this.
A friend and I would like to play bridge together online, and would like the two other players to be computer-generated. Anyone know of where we can do this? The sites that I have looked at seem to be all live players, or else you can play against the computer alone.

I have a physical, legal copy of Diablo 3
I'm planning on selling on eBay. I always knew that once I got bored of D3 I'd be selling it, so when I registered it on Battle.net I created a whole new GMail & Battle.net account (with a fake name) so I could give them to the buyer as part of the sale. My questions, then, are as follows; [more inside]

After much grueling labor and self-denial, I have created a virtual Windows 98 machine on my macbook using VirtualBox, all in the name of playing my favorite computer game from high school.

A year or two back there was an online video (Boingboing tv?) showing an interview with a young artist (British?) who had mounted a camera behind and above his back, which fed the live video to goggles he wore. He'd also dressed in a getup that would make him look like a game character, spiky hair and such. "Live 3rd person perspective" in other words.
Half an hour of googling and I can't find the darn video or any info relating to the artist. I think part of the video was shot in Japan, where he staggered around and posed in front of people, á la WoW taunting.
