At least Blizzard is consistent.
Those of us patiently (maybe?) waiting for the latest World of Warcraft update may have to wait just a little longer as they sort out the issues of the last patch before Wrath of the Lich King. According to the realm status page, I've found the error "404 File not found" so it looks like they are using the Blizzcon ticket dispenser somehow. Apparently the official word is that the realms going live is imminent and should be up shortly (I would link the forum post but the forums just went down too).
Keep checking in though, the 1.2GB patch has brought networks and machines to their knees so hopefully they will get it ship shape soon. While we wait, make sure you check out the Ten Ton Hammer Blizzcon 08 Coverage.
