    Still not on my menu.

    Oh dear.

    Nothing about it on UO.com either.

    GL appears to be one of the top shards in terms of population too!

    Not good.

    Really now, not having at least two hampster backups is just unacceptable in the world of technology... shoot, even our school district can manage to throw an extra one on the wheel when needed!

    Aren't you all on GL? It's going crazy. Mondain's destroying everything. I see lots of corpses, that must be you. And Daemon's are looting your houses.

    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to apologize for not messaging this on the Herald. I was recently added to the server outages list and unfortunately didn't recognize that an email I had received was in regards to this shard.

    I'll strive to better communicate server outages such as this in the future via the Herald.

    Thanks all,

    How about no more outtages...then your response time can be infinite :p

    And the next time Siege is down I'll tell people to go play on the Asian Siege shard (I forget the name, just remember it starts with an "M"), and we'll see what happens.

    Thank you for the word and the admission of responsibility. And to the server people for getting it back.

    God-damned right.

    Of course the point, as most folks with reading comprehension skills can probably discern, was that "your kind" (for the moderators, note that it was aran's phrase, not mine) finds it necessary to slip in and deliver snide comments, and then whines if one of "my kind" does the same. "Your kind" (for the moderators, note that it was aran's phrase, not mine) has been doing this some time now, and it's not really my fault if few if any of "my kind" calls you on it. "Your kind" (for the moderators, note that it was aran's phrase, not mine), I have noticed, isn't as good at taking as dishing out.

    This is not surprising.
