Blackburrow to Everfrost Server Merge - December 8, 2010

Hey everyone! Please see the announcement linked above about the server merge for Blackburrow and Everfrost.

The servers will be coming down at midnight tonight (Weds, Dec 8, 2010), so please feel free to use this thread to chat while you anxiously await meeting your new server family. In fact, you might use this thread to get to know each other in the meantime.

In case of emergency, your seat cushion may be used as a flotation device. 

If the cabin loses pressure, an oxygen mask will drop from the ceiling.  Please be sure to secure your own mask before helping others around you.

It's going to be a long night and we will do our best to not delete all of your characters.

Just curious... providing of course that there are no problems with this merge... are you guys able to say yet which pair will be next?

Y'all are cordially invited to hang out in ZAM IRC Chat and discuss server economies, bacon, or what kind of caffinated cocktail Rothgar is drinking to pull the all-nighter.  We're in the #EQ2 channel, of course.  Instructions here.  Feldon over at EQ2 Wire might still have his old ZAM IRC web portal up somewhere too.

Edit:  Here's EQ2 Wire's web portal to EQ2 ZAM IRC chat.  No installations and probably doable from work SMILEY  http://eq2wire.com/zamchat/

24 hours...wow...and I'm a night owl...

I guess maybe I can TRY to force myself to sleep and get up in the morning and do some of the stuff around my house that I've been putting off for the past couple months...

(Please don't change this quote on me again. There's nothing dirty or inappropriate in this quote. It is my own original quote making a joke of the old adage that "It's all fun and games, until someone gets hurt". It's actually a very appropriate forum signature, since many people strive to make puns of other people's posts, or they flame them for the posts they make. Hence, "It's all pun and flames, until someone gets butt-hurt." Butt-hurt being the end result after someone gets flamed or punned on. I've had this quote on a dozen other forum personae from other games, and never once, did anyone attempt to change or correct my quote, until here.)

I have to work half a day today so when I get home, might hop into IRC and see what everyone is up to.  Or play on Test.

Or wipe out people in Civ V.

Update:

It's 4am and the merge process is going smoothly so far with no surprises.  A few steps are running faster than expected, so that's good news.

Thanks!  I haven't been to sleep yet, but going to try to catch a cat nap in the next few hours so I can deal with any post-merge issues. 

We have a group of very dedicated people from different departments all working together to make sure this goes smoothly.  None of them are going to get much sleep tonight and some of them have another 24-hour maintenance to do right after this merge.
