So I wake up this morning expecting to be able to get on FFXI, and lo and behold, there's server maintenance.

The facts are, as soon as it's done, I have to download some stinkin' two hour patch, and then my siblings get home and I find myself suddenly lacking in FFXI-addiction-ebbing substance.

So how do YOU cope with server maintainence? Whether it's going on a mad rampage through your neighborhood, carrying around foam weapons, chasing small children ("Hey! I provoked you, get back here!!), or sitting down for a nice cup of coffee and laughing at my misfortune, we all have our 'coping strategies'.

This just happens to be mine:

I get around to finally posted 6+ month worth of pics in the FFXI Forum. =p

BTW, I think I have over 2000+. This is just a small sample -_-;


Sometimes when I talk to people, I like to imagine a giant "EDIT" button over their head. Not that it matters, I always reach for "DELETE".

Server maintenence is nothing. I think the last time I waited for maintence I think I called a friend and we complained about it and talked about FFXI for like an hour. But yeah thats nothing considering I cant get on FFXI for around 25 days >_<
