That's all well and good, descender. I have no issue with it taking hundreds of hours. I was kind of vague, but I was basically expecting someone to say, "No real character does damage like that, this is a dev playing with unattainable items." I was wondering if I spent hundreds of hours playing, could I reach that? Or does only 1 in 10,000 people (or less) reach that level because finding the items is so unlikely.

I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering how much money Blizzard actually pulled in from the RMAH. I doubt we'll ever know. Even knowing the scale would be nice. Millions? Tens of Millions?

So you are telling me it would take me many hundreds (thousands?) of hours to get a character capable of what I see in this video... Not that this is bad, just trying to get an idea of the scale of time required.

Here is a tip. Dont. Ever play D3 I mean. Unless you are a masochist, or a fan of World of Warcraft.
I did play WoW for 6.5 years, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. I also played a ton of D2 so I was initially looking forward to D3, but even before the release it became clear it wasn't what I was hoping for. I still hold out hope they'll get it fixed to the point I might be willing to give it a go. But I'm not holding my breath...

Haha -- Okay, I never played D3, so I gotta ask. Is that normal to see a character using a skill that does damage hits in the millions?

I need to make another pass at this... I got to the final bosses once, lost. Haven't been back yet.. I watched a couple of Let's Plays of the game and I have to say, I if I had half the luck the guys I watched had, I would have won.

I actually managed to see this post before the site went totally ka-boom. I tried to comment on it and say something like, "we seem to be having these brief outages more regularly lately" and couldn't. It wasn't too long after that the entire site was just down.

I was referring to the SimCity debacle.
Ah, well -- since I have at least half a brain, I didn't buy that -- so I didn't notice.

Damn, his father only lived to 53 and he dies at 48 -- fate has not been kind to the Henson family. Condolences to their friends and family.

The toughest non-game outage evar!

It was still shorter than EA's outage, and at 1/100th the resources at that.
There was an EA outage? I never noticed.

On the IPv4 to IPv6 conversion... I work in that field -- configuring routers, switches, and load balancers. And let me say, I hope the switch to IPv6 does not happen in my workplace until after I retire.

There will need to some seriously better tools than we have in IPv4 or it will be a nightmare. I type IPv4 addresses many, many times a day -- having to type IPv6 addresses instead would be a major headache.

Any word on how many are being laid off? Are we talking dozens or hundreds? Definitely a tough business to work in if a company this successful goes this way...

One of my pet ways of annoying the crew is by turning various moments into musical interludes, so I actually did sing bits of that while we are playing. I regularly make MrKawfy crazy by singing Black Betty any time someone says Bouncing Betty.
Ha! That is funny -- good song.

Yeah, that was my reaction. Pretty funny from a guy who is famous for ranting about people caught in the 20th century.
