    Well, I hope they get Cats up soon. I've got to get my UO fix before I go to bed (just got back from working all night).

    Btw, guess this will add a few hours to idoc times...

    I think Flutter stole it!

    Yep, That's it! Flutter stole it!

    With that whip of hers, no one dares stop her when she does things like that!

    You'd think they would have like a NASA style console with green lights that go red when a shard is down.. :p

    It's my fault. It was cold at my place last night so I plugged in a space heater and overloaded something and blew a fuse. I stopped at the hardware store before work today and picked up a new one. I'll have it installed as soon as I get home from work... in about 7 more hours.

    Go play on Siege until then. I hear it's where all the cool kids play... And Kelmo, but he's not one of the cool kids.

    I logged onto GL and all your Catskills characters are in the animal pens in Yew. Just standing there with a blank look in their eyes. It's freaky.

    Has anyone noticed of late the shards are all having a bit of a tiff and going down alot?

    I mean the last few weeks its been one right after another, some more then others too.

    I am wondering if the servers are going on the fritz and if so... will Ea fork over the $$ to replace or fix??

    Thought that was a software upgrade... i could be wrong. But it has been odd that about 6 shards over the last few weeks have gone MIA not to mention the lag.

    No it was a hardware upgrade, but generally with hardware you are most likely to have problems when the hardware is new, or really old. Parts that are going to fail due to manufacturing flaws will generally do so fairly quickly. Once you get past the first month or so you are far less likely to experience hardware failures until the hardware is reaching the end of it's life expectancy. :scholar:

    You may very well be correct Lady Storm. I have not noticed lag... I guess you need to log in to notice.
