So I decided to give it another shot, I reactivated my account and I'm back baby!
But I think I might make a fresh new character and start again, because things have changed since I last played. One thing I noticed in the brief 3 minutes I was on-line before I decided that actually bed was a better idea, was that there is a proper screen shot command now. Woop!
OK, just so anyone still reading knows. These days I have less time to play games so FFXIV really has to be tight now to keep my interest, so this will be a good measure to see if SE has sorted this out enough.
