There’s a press release posted on the Dr. Jinx Network. It’s not on the UO site, I haven’t heard about it from my myriad sources (yes, both of you), but Jinx got it. Hell, maybe he wrote it himself. If so he has a bright future in public relations. Anyway go here and all you Aussies rejoice that you can now PK with regular ping times like normal people.
However, I am beating the Dr. Jinx Network to the punch on the new Volunteer Shard. HAH! Apparently this is like the Test Center, only even more special. Maybe this has something to do with encouraging the mentally ill to vote. At any rate, YOU TOO can play on the Volunteer Shard, and in fact the Men, Women And Other in Blue wish you would, because, you know, being a chief is no fun at all without indians.
