vjmurphy writes "Connectivity to the massively-multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft servers and web site appears to have had some difficulties over the past week. Their hosting is provided by AT&T." That includes my raid's dying twice in MC due to 4000 latency, and also a soft reset of MC. Good work, AT&T.

    Note: the following post has been graciously hosted by AT&T.

    This [Connecting...] is [Authenticating... ] absurd. I [Authenticating... ] demand that all of [Authenticating... ] these false [Authenticating... ] allegations be stopped.

    When will you learn that if a company takes your money, they are providing a service that cannot fail? [/console reloadui]

    We almost beat razorgore this last week DUE TO the lag. Seems mind controlling him and destroying the eggs was good and the mobs that were supposed to be attacking him weren't. They'd just stand next to him, I suppose hoping the disapproving stares would cause him to stop destroying eggs. On the other hand, Blizzard has not been above doling out a free day here or there when server issues erupted into full scale cratacularness. I also strongly suspect AT&T beta/piloting it's "Wouldn't it be a pity if something nasty happened to your precious data?" scalable bandwidth usage plan.

    I warned you against buying that Adaptec shit. Get a decent RAID controller that isn't so touchy with latency issues.

    Did they port the server code from Europe?

    Apparently they have people paying them $15/mo for the privalege of DDOSing their servers...

    Blizzard Server Admin 1: Hey, some guy on Slashdot said we should fix the servers!
    Blizzard Server Admin 2: *facepalm* Shit, I NEVER thought of that.
    BSA1: Imagine the implications of such a radical approach!
    BSA2: My god, thank you ZombieRoboNinja! Your insight will revolutionize server administration around the world! Fix the Servers! Simply amazing.

Man will never fly. Space travel is merely a dream. All aspirin is alike.
