    Greetings!

    Tomorrow, Wednesday 12/15 all shards will be brought offline at 11AM EDT for hardware maintenance. We anticipate the maintenance to conclude before 5:00PM EDT and will update this post when servers are available to players.

    *laughs* Well I am a day late and a dollar short. I was thinking TOMORROW was the 15th cuz well...I am behind a day.

    I did manage to get one vacation waffer into one of my fish tanks but um...got the notice shards going DOWN.

    Ok they were all due to be fed and watered today... so maybe I end up with a buncha dead fishes floating belly up, whenever the shards come back...or not. :) Maybe the fishes will survive ! ?

    Hopefully this hardware work will address some of the lag problems I've noticed in the last week.

    Re: [UO Herald] Hardware Maintenance 12/15/10 - All Shards

    Why hardware maintenance all shards at once? Easier to break everything without chance for rollback.

    Maybe some emergency publish they can't say in public like exploit fix?
