Right now I'm sipping glenmorangie. Too poor to afford talsker. gm at least half the price.

GMs nice to tho I hav to agreeBig smile


Its the normal 10 year. Much prefer the port casket GM. Have you tried that?
How do you drink your talisker? I've been told 5ml water to 30ml whiskey. Me, Just add 2 cubes and swirl till it goes down like nectar... okey it goes down like nectar from the bottle as well, but still...


Purists say no ice, no water. Myself, not fussy. If it's good whisky, it's good whisky. Big smile

Yeah yesterday the beta map was broken as another issues of the latest patch, i think that the updates fked up the system real good...CCP should be more careful testing better the changes before rolling them out to the public...so we don't have to wait a whole day to play...hope server gets on really soon!

You would think that after 5 hrs, competent programmers would have solved this issue. It's time for compensation folks.

To be fair, if the downtime is this long it's probably something serious, if a bug corrupted the db state during downtime they'l be able to restore from backup (they probably backup every downtime, I would) but it would take ages to restore.


Sounds more like a hardware problem than software. Did CCP remember to pay the electric bill and is it plugged in?
Don't have have a cluster of servers? Isn't the whole point of that to make sure that a hardware problem is contained to a single machine?

Who are the usual suspects?

Or, more expediently, simply round up the usual suspects.

I dont think that the skill queue works while the server is down... for all of you saying that we have a skill queue that saves up to 50 skills.. I dont think the skills are hosted in a different server.. so if the server is down, the skill queue is down as well
