Operation Echo Isles: Transcripts and details {WoW}

Mar 27th 2010 2:43AM Probably similar to the Wrathgate event.

Why Blizzard can't (and won't) sell gold {WoW}

Mar 4th 2010 5:30PM This is not meant to be something that every joe-schmoe gets. This is something that a guild works together to help their members get.

Expecting to do it on your own is going to take forever.

Why Blizzard can't (and won't) sell gold {WoW}

Mar 4th 2010 4:53PM The hackers strip guild banks as well to send money to other people. The guild and player report the account hacked, blizzard refunds the guild/player their money.

The gold sellers have created new gold in a closed economy, because the people they stole it from were reimbursed.

Abilities I usually wish didn't exist in 5-mans {WoW}

Jan 14th 2010 4:39PM I wish that druid thunderstorm ability didn't exist, because I can't actually see anything going on when it's happening.

Breakfast Topic: What secret weapon lies within Uldum? {WoW}

Doesn't surprise me. It looked kind of that way when they showed screenshots of it at Blizzcon.

Breakfast Topic: What secret weapon lies within Uldum? {WoW}

Aug 29th 2009 10:03AM Deep inside Uldum is a copy of WoWEdit... a weapon capable of reshaping Azeroth itself! It can even make Onyxia deep breath more!

A video look at the new Shaman toolbar {WoW}

Aug 29th 2009 5:40AM I thought my voice was just fine in the video.

Multiple realms offline tonight {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 10:05PM Battle.Net with Authenticator here and stuck at connecting.

BlizzCon 2009: 15 Minutes on the Street {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 5:22AM Agreed, I'm a guy and I thought the hoodie was made of cute.

The Queue: Nuts and bolts {WoW}

Aug 24th 2009 3:19PM On Authenticators:

Replacing the battery (or just disconnecting the battery long enough for it to reset) would be _BAD_. The authenticator would be unusable at that point, because of the algorithm inside of it that calculates what the next random number will be would be reset and no longer match up with what the server expected.

RSA-Security was the first to create these types of things and theirs usually had a 'replace by' date on the back. Theirs usually died not that long after the date (a month to a year from what I saw). Being as the ones from Vasco only display anything when you hit the buttons, this should cause a much longer battery life if you aren't constantly hitting the button for no reason (or it is getting hit in your pocket).

But as I said before, due to the nature of how the system works, battery replacement is just something impossible for this particular product to offer even if they wanted to allow it.
