AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!That is an appropriate level of panic.
Eh, I'm on vacation anyway. Too bad there's no internetz where I'm going :(
But...But...But.... What will I DO?*Sobs*
omg no! not the !
Upgrading whose raid? Heh, 3 hours without Wowhead sound like a good time for extra sleep :)
Upgrading whose raid? Heh, 3 hours without Wowhead sound like a good time for extra sleep :)sounds like someone's hoping for extended maintenance :p
"Alright guys you've done a god 3 years work. Time for a 3hour break, one hour for each year you've worked here.""Butbutbut, I just got here""one minute for you"

Wowhead and WoW down for maintenance at the same time? I think that is a sign of the end of the world, no?
Well its better then having it on Friday, some people would die from lack of Light and Death (you kow who you are).
Wowhead and WoW down for maintenance at the same time? I think that is a sign of the end of the world, no?No, Saurfang just really need time to meditate.
but...but.....what will I do for my WoW discussion? Am I supposed to go to *gulp* Thottbot? I think if I do my eyes will implode.
You're upgrading your server's raid?Are they getting new healers?I joke, but does that mean I have to go to Thottbot in the mean time?
This will suck ass. I love Wowhead, why do you have to update the firmware *sobs*I will have to go to a rehibilitation centre for this just to curb my 3 hours without Wowhead.
Its 3 AM to 5 AM if your arn't asleep in those hours something is really wrong with you... after all I get off wow at 3 and sleep till 10

lol, I actually wrote a small text about the RAID and raid similarity back in February (yeah, I was bored...):While doing the exam I was going through the previous week, I happened to notice a funny, yet extremely obvious similarity between the subject and World of Warcraft. Part of the assignment was about Redundant Arrays of Independent Disks (RAID). The rest should be, as mentioned, fairly obvious. Of course, a similarity isn’t that funny if it’s only because the names are alike, so I started to look for something more, since the assignment was about improving a system with RAID level 0, to RAID level 5, and why it’s better.A RAID contains disks (insert funny and original comment, which includes the almighty Captain Obvious, here), while a raid contains members. Thus, a member of a raid resembles a disk of a RAID. Lower levels of RAID doesn’t contain any real security for lost data if a disk starts failing, and the data will be lost forever. The same applies to a raid where the members takes damage, and there’s no healer around. One or more of the members will eventually die.So, the security in the shape of parity is introduced to the RAID. When a disk fails, the data is not really lost, as it can be restored by comparing the data on the remaining disks. A healer joins a raid, and ensures that the members stay alive longer, and thus be more efficient in the long run. This is basically the idea of RAID level 4, but it has a flaw; there’s one disk that takes care of all the parity, and as such it will be used a lot more than the average disk. One healer in a raid will likewise have a bit of trouble, and will be a lot more stressed than the non-healing members.At RAID level 5, the parity is spread amongst the disks, and thus the disks will be evenly used, providing an overall longer lifetime. Raidwise, the healing is represented as every member in the raid having minor healing-skills, a potion, or something likewise. Point being, the overall stress is just as high on every player.Lastly, this scenario doesn’t really support combat resurrections, as the raid has to be out of combat for some time, before a member can be restored to life. I’ll leave it to you, as to what that resembles in RAID-lingo.:D
