I'm getting a jarring reminder that no matter how much I love RTS games, I am awe-strikingly terrible at them, especially against other people or against an AI set more difficult than "mentally handicapped".
So, you're like me, then?
Well, as I put it to one of my friends earlier, "I'm a turtler in a rusher's world." I don't know if there's a fundumental problem with how I play or if the turtler gameplay is just too deeply engrained in me, but I am just not fast enough to be good. It seems like the enemy (AI or human) always has an army before I even have a barracks. I'm going to try to stick with SCII as long as possible and hopefully figure out how to hone my skills a bit.
I sympathize, I'm a turtler at heart as well.

As far as SC2 goes, I heartily recommend the "I Suck at Starcraft 2" video series by TotalBiscuit, very entertaining and high production values
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
