    at approximately 0901 EST there was received a SYSTEM MESSAGE that stated "sever shutdown aborted. no need to camp"

    perhaps the term used might not have been clear, to me the term "aborted" is defined as the following:

    past tense: aborted; past participle: aborted
    1. 2.
      bring to a premature end because of a problem or fault.
      "the pilot aborted his landing"
      synonyms: halt, stop, end, ax, call off, cut short, discontinue, terminate, arrest, cancel, scrub;
      informalpull the plug on
      "the crew aborted the takeoff"
    are we using the same definition?
    or was there those "Not Left Behind" that are using a different definition?

    or using the same dictionary where the term "rare" means every ten minutes?

    Again a good job for DBC in communication :mad:

    In a computer or data transmission system, to abort means to terminate, usually in a controlled manner, a processing activity because it is impossible or undesirable for the activity to proceed. Such an action may be accompanied by diagnostic information on the aborted process.

    Just because you do not understand definitions in a computing context, does not mean you are right.

    Carry on.

    Re-read what you wrote. Did you just wake up? I don't think you said what you think you said.

    Boss: Announce the server restart
    Dev Announcement: Attention Players, we are restarting the server in 15 mins
    Boss: Abort the restart
    Dev to Boss: I pushed cancel button. Restart process has been aborted.
    Boss: Thanks, tell the players.
    Dev Announcement: Server restart has been aborted. No need go camp.

    "ZAM's EverQuest Community is temporarily down due to hardware failure."
    EQ is having 'maintenance" issues?
    Confusion over the past tense of 'abort' being used in past tense? "sever shutdown aborted. no need to camp" - isn't that past tense?
    Regardless of the question, the answer is Aliens!

    While we're all bored and riding this grammor natsy trane , how about we work on the difference between "then" and "than". I started to see the confusion from the tech world in the late 90's and now it's an infestation on grammar.:rolleyes:

    This message was broadcasted unintentionally, but things proceeded with the server shutdown as originally stated.

    That aside, the downtime has been extended and should run for approximately 45 more minutes - I'll keep things updated if that changes again.
  17. Phess New Member

    LOL yep, they're not really on the ball with their web site. You won't find it under news, or the server status site. I looked under "Game Updates" one time and got a brag page on their 15th anniv.

    That being said you will find any delayed update here:
    look under News and Announcements.

    Overreact much? If you click the link on the patcher you'll see big red letters saying that the game is down. Move your eyes one inch down the page and you'll find a shortcut to the update about the downtime.

    Plus, although you seem to have finally found it, you should link directly to the post to prevent anyone like yourself from getting confused: https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq...esday-june-20-6-30-am-pt.249908/#post-3675225

    I'm really not ********, but, you would think that in 19+ years, they could have gotten the estimated time for a patch nailed down pretty accurately by now.
  20. Phess New Member

    Yes, you overreacted. I was making a statement of fact based on my opinion derived from my observation stemming from my perspective, personal baggage & a bit of sarcasm . ...Which I might add turns out to be spot on.
    But I'll excuse your misunderstanding & aggressiveness and add a thank you for mentioning one of the links in the patcher which I failed/forgot to do and a thank you for mentioning one of the 2 thread shortcuts forums page I mentioned. The other thread is Game Update Notes (Live) which gives good details on the patch itself and by looking at that expansive list is a reason why a patch can have issues.
    Thank you for your assistance.
