Another lovely Tuesday in Azeroth, and Yes! It's maintenance day!

From our Server Status Forum

We will be performing maintenance for all realms on Tuesday, March 24th. The downtime will begin at 5:00AM PDT and end at approximately 11:00AM PDT.

Thank you.

As always, there may also be periodic outages of web services during this time, including these forums.

This is always a good time to update your security software, do deep scans as well as any other maintenance your own systems might benefit from for peek operation during the week to come!

# Why the Downtime Every Tuesday?

# No, but seriously—why Tuesday?

Q u o t e:

I've also heard strange tales of people using this time to do things like 'going outside', or 'reading a book', but I firmly believe that is just idle talk. Everyone knows that the proper thing to do is to stare at your 'puter counting the seconds until maintenance is over

I've yet to confirm if this rumor is true, but I've heard tell of this horrible burning globe of hydrogen in the sky.

Sounds very frightening.

Just FYI folks, my tools are unavailable with maintenance.

I'm not ignoring threads, but I am unable to research anything now.

I'd just as soon leave threads unanswered so folks later in the day can spot them easily.

the entertainment value is thru the roof!

(and this "Sunlight" and "Outside" you speak of....what is that?? can't you eat it??)

Now, be nice, Cupcaké.

It's not nice to laugh at the timezone impaired :)
