World of Warcraft's being stupid and not letting me sign in.

Also, apparently I managed to get an account by luck or something. Strange stuff, as my friend has very recently (2 hours ago) informed me that the signups were closed, and had been closed for a good number of days (12ish).

Lastly, the downloader is kinda strange... it's downloading sequentially... Not in random packets, like BitTorrent does. How do I know this? The active file is slowly being filled up, bit by bit, byte by byte. And everything else is at zero, and completely untouched. Kinda stupid, actually... What I don't understand is that it keeps touching the complete files (well, assumed complete)... their modification date keeps updating to the current time/day. Why bother, unless they're not really complete, but the sizes aren't changing at all.

Twelveish is silly; open beta started on Monday. The site's been down and up off and on, so maybe that's what they meant.

Servers are being stupid right now, yeah. Don't worry, they'll fix ^^ Influx of people who finally got the client to finish downloading, have installed it, and are now able to start their true open beta playing ^^;;

::blinks:: huh. Odd, I swear that the date of the news post "World of Warcraft Open Beta Signups Closed - Nebu on 11/09/04" had said 10/28/04, not 11/09/04. And that was what he was pointing to. Strange... Oh well. silly then.

Well, the patch to make 1.0 into 1.1 (open beta client) came out on Sunday. And on Monday, I told 'Narti via LJ to go sign up for Open Beta, because that was the first day people were talking about it. She was able to sign up, I was able to sign my mother up, and go through it without any problems, so... *shrugs*

10/28 was when the closed beta servers went down, I think, for recoding before the final stress test and open beta started, but as I wasn't involved in that, I couldn't tell you exactly.

Mom is pretty good with Diablo II/expansion, but she's not used to the two-button mouse I'm using for World of Warcraft (to be perfectly honest, I have no idea how I'd function without it. Then again, I never tried =3;;) so she got frustrated with the game REALLY early on. Still got her an account in case she does decide she wants to try her hand at it, though =3;;

Dad likes pinball and the old Ambrosia game Maelstrom. End of story, really XD;; He doesn't play anything else. he used to play NBAJam '96 with me, back on the Genesis, but... that was back on the genesis, So. =D;;
