Also, if you would of been able to bring servers back up for original time, this would be les of an issue, but an 8 hour downtime period is pretty long! (game client currently states 2pm for return of server...this thread has not been updated at 12h10 eastern time)
All on Orien: Kanuk 20 Cleric (PL: 22 heroic (7iconic) + 15 epics) - Frapfor (6th life, Bladeforge, 16pally/2fighter/2monk bladeforge) - Confesseur (2nd life, Bladeforge, going 12 Monk/6Ranger/2Pally) - Grospivit (2nd life,Human , going 20 Barb) - Casai (2nd life 18wiz/2rogue) - Robokanuk (2nd life, Human(for now)going 15Bard/3Fighter/2Rogue)
I know its not the original artist but he does it so it sounds good unlike the unhearable original
The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE
interesting that the launcher doesn't show the first extension of time
please hurry i'm getting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbVvbDAEfkE
They could at last use the time to do some long needed fixes to the lag problems... But I feat they only will get worse afterwards...
By the way, something seems to have been going horribly wrong with the server hamsters, it seems. No necromancer available to produce zombie hamsters when one is needed?
At least I can pass the time reading all of the whining about the downtime. Dang, I got to the last post. Now I got nothin. I guess I will go read the back of a shampoo bottle.
is another eta possible?
Thx in advance.

DEVS - While I do understand that problems arise that are unforeseen, you would think after EIGHT, yes that's eight YEARS of handling "maintenance" on this product you would have figured how to keep it within a reasonable time frame given. A good 70% of the time you always bugger it up and have to extend it (which I and i'm sure many of us don't mind) by an hour or two. Then you turn around and due to stress, higher ups, complications, short staffing, or just flat out honest general incompetency add another 2+ hours onto the scheduled "3" hour maintenance. This has often times even led to entire days of being unable to access the product which a fair number of us so graciously pay out of our pockets for on a repeated basis for an out dated and antiquated product. We do this for love of DnD, for what DDO USED to be, and because more than likely (if they are anything like myself) for the sheer amount of money we've spent on the game over the last 8 years and we just can't walk away from that investment.
All ranting aside, you really need to get your development, research, and maintenance teams together and motivated to get their hamsters moving. Not sure if your marketing and finance people realize it or not, but the moment a competitor who's customer service / reliability / etc whom are MUCH superior to Turbine's are able to launch a product that has the same level of customization (because let's be honest, that's the only thing your product has left currently), then you're in a world of trouble.
Final point: take the time to do things right, code up a maintenance protocol that everything done that you want for the session which when activated will auto-run itself and seamlessly integrate to the live servers. The result is about an hour downtime, if that.
See you tomorrow.
Just so you know DDO got more information about the downtime than Infinite Crisis. Their announcement still says 10 AM EST.

Do you actually have an idea of the workings of a server farm pretty sure you don't otherwise your statement would not have been made lol and if you have to defrag your pc once a week you're doing it all wrong, jump forward in time 20yrs mate and catch the rest of us. And yes i work with servers everyday, maybe not game servers, but i can guarantee they see more traffic then Turbines and far less maintenance, not commenting on their set-up just your pretence of knowing how it all works.

If it is non game related will you give all VIP a nice "I am sorry for screwing you again " gift?
