I can probably do 9pm eastern tonight. I was working late last night and did not feel like actually getting on last night.

Wife is going to probably kill me, but I should be in. We need to pick some designated fall back points... not the spawns. I think a added layer of targeted attack zone might help us some.

(Re:Stewart Development)

Oh, yeah. Is that still going on?

Currently sitting in 21C (rear exit, aisle) aboard UA1408 as we sit at the gate @ IAH, as we have been for the past hour and a half. Weather is fine, no mechanical issues, but for some reason they can't get the weight & balance sheet to print. I could have done W&B with a pencil and slide rule by now, and I've never even flown a 737...

Nope. But you said tomorrow, and I just had to reference it.

Sounds like you'll be in for TF2 tonight then, eh Joe?

... and they've now de-planed us. Back in the terminal, waiting for God-only-knows-what.

Mann Up mode from MVM.

You buy in with a ticket for Valve's special servers with special maps that you can only access in Mann Up. At the end, you get guarenteed items - squad vouchers multiply the guarenteed items you can get.

For $3, you can walk out with between 7 to 12 items and some other special perks.

Ugh, finally got home last night.

We knew something major was going on, as every single gate at IAH terminal E had a United airplane parked at it. As in: there were no United airplanes moving at IAH at all- they were all just sitting there.

That's never a good sign.

Periodic updates were given from the flight deck, each one saying something to the effect of "We still have absolutely no idea what's going on out there, but we appreciate your patience and we'll inform you as soon as we know something."

That's even neverer a good sign.

It wasn't just IAH, though. Apparently United's entire booking system went offline for about two and a half hours, grounding every single United flight across the country.

We finally took off about four and a half hours behind schedule. And the reason that they de-planed us was that the loss of the reservation system meant they'd lost all their data as to who had actually boarded the plane. So they ran us all through boarding a second time, this time physically tearing all the boarding passes in half and handing back the stubs.

On the plus side, my Russian chauffeur was right there waiting for me when we finally got into San Diego. I gave him an extra $50.

Hooray! Joe is back! Now MvM with us.

We'll need to run through a normal game first though so you can earn a Canteen.

I'm not entirely certain. My gaming machine was acting a tad funky when I powered it up last night (it automatically started to do the overnight backup which it has missed, and was still crunching on it 8 hours later, which is way too long), and this morning I seem to have crashed it by trying to do a remote reset. I don't think anything is seriously wrong with it, but I haven't had a chance to really play with it at all.

I think I'll probably run through a few games with other random idiots who I don't care about so that I can at least learn the basic mechanics of the game,

(Translation: I don't want all of you to see your beloved moderator thrashing around like a total newb.)

Hit me up for team queueing if I'm on then.

MVM is fun, but incredibly frustrating for me to random queue if no one with a clue is in the game.
