This is way off topic, but thought it was just too cool not to share.

There's been two similar incidents in The Matrix Online (http://www.thematrixonline.com) - a flame virus plagued the Mega City spreading on contact - the end result being a lot of confused players running around on fire :D. The interesting thing to note is that in such a situation, most of the players seemed more intent on spreading the virus to others than curing themselves - it reached epidemic proportions in less than an hour. I wonder if the WoW players are reacting similarly..?

I bought WoW last November and still haven't played it yet. My biggest worry is not being ably to fully commit to it in the 60-day time frame prior to having to pay the additional monthly fee.

Reading stuff like this on what's going on WoW just makes me want to get involved even more in playing it. It's really cool on what Blizzard and the WoW community are doing with this mmorpg. :thumbsup:

...and now back to the regularly scheduled program...

You know.. I just think this is funny! That's all there is to is.. very very funny!

I think these bring a whole new spin to the term "computer virus"
