Well, that answers the question I asked in the other topic. In about three hours we'll find out if they are going to actually open them or do something else.

News Comments > Activision Blizzard Results, More WoW Subs Lost
23. Re: Activision Blizzard Results, More WoW Subs Lost May 9, 2013, 08:14 Mr. Tact
 
Agreed. Love it or hate it, WoW has been and continues to be a fantastic success. While I'm holding onto hope that Titan will be as compelling as WoW was at launch, I figure the changes are very small. Actually, at this point, I think the odds of me ever buying another Blizzard game is pretty small. SC2 being the last thing I bought. And frankly, thinking about that makes me a little sad.

Truthfully, I don't think it's settled -- above my pay grade. But I suspect we'll end up replacing periods with underscores. Our naming scheme must indicate the physical location. It is required when you have data centers with up to 8 rows of cabinets with as many as 16 cabinets in a row...

Oh and it's only appropriate for me to say again, that I would REALLY like to know how much money Blizzard has actually made off the RMAH. Something we are unlikely to ever learn...

Well, I found someone talking about it and I admit I really hadn't quite thought it all the way through -- didn't really understand what people were saying here.

In case someone else didn't "get it" the issue here is people apparently were generating literally trillions of gold. Then they bought everything in the gold AH, then turned around and put them up for "cheap" on the real money AH. Hence, if you legitimately logged in, unaware of the problem, you could wander into the RMAH and spend your money on items purchased out of the Gold AH with duped gold.

Quite the mess -- it will be interesting to see how it all unravels.

Our biggest issue recently is to stop using periods in device names -- so it will reduce the pain of dealing with DNS. For instance, a name in the old standard might be something like:

sw1.2-01.abc
sw2.2-01.abc

So that would be the switch pair, in cabinet 2-01 (row 2, cab 01), in the "abc" location. Trying to DNS around that complicates your life...

Is there a video of someone doing this? I'd enjoy watching that...

Aye. I'd vote to make all fonts which do not distinguish between the number one and the lower case "L" or between zero and upper case "O" as being declared illegal. Not that it would do any damn good...

Great job gaming community for sticking it to EA (sarcasm). Actually, this all leads me to believe that we are, in fact, the minority....
Story of my life. I'm almost always the 5% (or less) that doesn't care, isn't interested, or is unaffected. Reality shows is a great example. People watch that stuff, really? I'd rather be at the dentist.

I couldn't care less about community for this type of game. Played probably a couple of hundred hours of TL2 as single player, all of it "off-line". I'd consider co-op if any of my RL friends were playing, but otherwise, *shrug* why bother.

The capitalization of "Internet" is actually useful in my job as a network guy at a major corporation with major data centers is four states. However, I understand your reluctance to use that convention.

Can anyone explain to me why this works from Cutter's link and not mine when the URLs are exactly the same?
Guessing case sensitivity -- the 'i' in Internet.

Heat have to beat the odds now, teams winning the first away game have won the series most of the time. That said, I don't expect the Bulls to win the series.
