You mean the game where you type in your password every minute to see if the servers are back up? Same sort of thrills as the slots. Plug in the credits, hit the button and watch while it dials up the magic numbers while you hope you hit the cherries 3 in a row!

It was a hell of a lot better after 6pm, before that Diablo was more of a login simulator than an RPG for most. It is fun once you get in though.

Guess I deserved that one. Well, I'm going back to the backup plan, reading. Hope it's resolved by tomorrow evening.

Just more proof to me that the "always online" model sucks a*s. This has been a single player game for me in all other iterations. I don't care if it plays online, I really don't. I am also not going to spend real world cash for virtual items, so this just turns into a PITA rather than a feature I would use.

Oh well, at least it is early out here on the west coast, so I guess I may get an hour or two in yet tonight :)
