at this rate and at this hour 200 pages is a joke.
There will be like 500 pages before the server will be up again Cool
the only problem is that the forum servers will be down too if this continues long enough Twisted

So you guys do QA testing behind the scenes like you said at Fanfest don't you
UH no, we lied about that
Oh but you make a make up don't you, so you can roll back when - sorry I mean if - things go wrong don't you
Well we say we do, but seriously if we had a rollback we'd have used it by now
In that case surely you can't have been lying when you said "Aegis has been successfully released"
In Icelandic "success" has a different meaning to the rest of the world, so we didn't really lie about that

"The server used is an IBM x3850 M2 server with 128 GB RAM and two 2.6 GHz six core Xeons (Dunnington) running Windows server 2008 x64 Enterprise Edition and Microsoft SQL Server 2008."

The pc I am playing on is not that much behind lols.

Btw now that I know it's run on Win server I have no more doubs as to why it failed : Microsoft:



What you picked out of the whole cluster is just specs of one alone DB server. DB server does not need that much of a CPU power, but rather a lot of fast memory and really fast storage.

You may have missed the part about 60 blades, each equipped with 2 dualcore processors.

Take a drink every time Christo posts this. Also, guessing game, how many times will they have posted that before the servers are back up and running?



NOOOOOO!

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



The concept of asking for soemthign is NOT about the training. IT is about the time we PAY and cannot play.

IS that so hard to understand? Or if they left the server offline for 10 days you would not want a refund for the time you payed and could not play?



~$.02 USD an hour. That's what you're missing out on. If it hurts that bad, give me a verifiable invoice of your accounts, I'll reimburse you for the downtime out of my own pocket. I'll need you to cover any money transfer fees though, I use Western Union.


And, before you say something about ISK, that's even better. If you want, I'll reimburse you the USD equivalent of however much you would have made in ISK during the downtime. In order to maintain fairness in the accounting, I'll be using the ISK to USD conversion rate as set by CCP.

Just give me a buzz, I'm happy to help.


Finaly someone that understands it :)

From this day on, after 9 months, there will be a Baby Boom. Players will b... their wives because most of them are idle and when they see his women around, they say: "Honey, let me show how we make drones in EVE" :P
