Actually, this is gignormous sarcasm. To put things in perspective, we just invested in 75, 300€, Dells, as many telephones and screens, a new server blade and our headcount has just broken the 300-mark. To give an idea, we're dealing with roughly 20 000 calls a day.

So when I hear about "too expensive", I raise an eyebrow to match David Tennant's
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Not that much of a problem nowadays.

Worst-case idea:
Keep data on a local unit, and have someone halfway decent write a script that creates a new file and sends the old one to, say, an external drive. Have him make you an exe so that when you get back home and plug the drive, you just start the .exe to have the file stocked somewhere on your home computer and then delete it from the drive.

A bit of daily management, but it's not that hard. We had something similar with our entire customer database at my previous job (using NASes and automated backups, but concept's the same).
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

My inner software developer just died a little inside after reading this... But yeah, that "could" work :p If you got a decent internet connection (without data limits) you could also make something that just sends the file through the internet with a private network ish idea (like Hamachi for example). That would be more foolproof I think :p

To explain you what sort of connection us people that don't live in super major towns have in Italy, just know that to download WoW it takes me about 20 hours (if I'm lucky)

Warrior co-tank gets blown up by the adds on Garrosh phase 1. I can probably survive them better but I lack the handy stun and heroic leap out of the ball of death that he has. So much ranged DPS time is spent dosing them down to die to the ball that Phase 1 takes forever. 2:40 minutes last night only once got to the second phase with the majority of the raid alive.

probably should go in relationships but its more ingame frustration than anything else so

raid canceled tonight, so friend asks for my help leveling her resto/boomkin with one of my tanks
i havent played tankadin in a while but i know how so i say sure

first dungeon - jade serpent..
trash to the water guy - everything fine
first add during boss fight - major lag spike and i finally catch up when the boss is at 30% in P2
second boss - no issues
3rd boss i dont THINK there are issues but she claims i was running in place part of the fight

we end up fine
i restart wow, and we get stormstout
no lag issues at start, but shite dps that is barely killing anything (as in i am top damage done at like 40% of our groups output and i havent played a pally in a while so i am just hitting shiny buttons) and standing in EVERYTHING

the vermin boss took something like 9 minutes to do, lag spikes return
trash to final boss everything was fine...until we get to the last room
i cant keep aggro on ANYTHING, taunt and hand of salv are kept on cd, dps is standing in everything possible, she (my healer friend) dies and we finish the first wave, and i get a rez off just in time to start the second wave...i gather what i can, ask the dps to come with me, and go behind the pillar
only dps doesnt move, i get yelled at on skype to get my fucking ass out there because that is where they are, and then i get told to calm teh fuck down because i SIGHED

oh and my computer crashed right after that...so yeah
now i have a friend who is very pissed at me, who probably thinks i bailed on purpose like that, and yeah...
the fun part is that my brain cant keep up with my hands and mouth at times and i send her a text basically saying i WAS calm til you pissed me off!
yes i know, i am a fucking dumbass

so who wants to start the betting pool for how long it is til i hear from her again?

Last week, my roommate was sick. Sick enough that he wound up calling in sick on Friday - due to the holiday, I had to work it, though it's my normal day off.

I don't know what it was I ate on Friday night, though, but I came down with the worst case of stomach cramps I've had in a while. I can't even drink plain lukewarm water without nausea. I wind up not eating at all on Saturday or Sunday, just vomiting a lot. Like in an epic boss battle - I get to the basin, and then have waves of vomit end on end. It was awful.

Monday, we agree I'm not going to work because I can't even navigate stairs by myself, I'm that exhausted. And then what happens? I pick up said roommate's fucking illness. So I've spent all week at home, in bed or on the couch, sleeping or watching whatever is on Netflix, unless I'm coughing my lungs out. If this doesn't stop, I should have abs of steel by spring break.

Flex with anywhere from 12 to 15 people. 2 Melee. If the adds don't die from the star he gets blown up with 9ish adds on him when the war cry goes out. Only way we can get them down in time is to have the ranged on them.

Can't you get a warlock portal or priest life grip out of the ball?

no..lock portals make you unable to gain threat for like 15 sec

lifegrip would work though


what iron star is being let through, the one closer to the throne or closer to the back wall?

Demonic Gates don't make you drop threat now, but you can only take one every 60 seconds, up from 20.

They changed this in 5.4. Lock portals don't have a total threat dump anymore.

Why having them rot when you can vendor em (or use em on random token and vendor the item)? :P

And yeah I know your feeling, this one day I got 4 Burdens within 10 minutes on my priest. Useful (not).
I do understand that they are not BoA because they don't want people to entirely skip all gearup gameplay on alts, but that doesn't make me happy to vendor them :|
