Kinda a fun thread... Was curious what ppl are gonna be doing during maintenance...

Other than sleeping, I plan on watching more episodes of 'No Reservations' and 'Parts Unknown.' Maybe a little 'BBT' and definitively another watch of the new Star Trek (sooooo good). Hopefully, by around midnight, I will tired/intoxicated enough to sleep and wake for 4am and attempt to log and even create my alt.

Anyway, what do you all have planned?

Catching up on the sleep that i missed over the weekend playing non-stop >_>; Maintenance starts at 1 AM for me, and servers should be up around 11 AM. Still have a week off, may as well use it.

Fantasy draft will probably take up most of the night, then clean up this smelly brew mess. Oh, and checking the forums constantly to get my fix...

The maintenance is happening at 8pm for me, so I'll either watch some movies or play BL2, and most likely get to bed early. Hopefully tomorrow, all the login issues we've having will be resolved.

I've got Tales of Xillia to finish. And I just got Killer Is Dead, might fire that up.

But really, the downtime is while I'm asleep for the most part. 8pm to 6am, and I usually go to bed between 11 and midnight, so it's only a few hours to fill. Maybe I'll catch up on some DVR'd TV.

Assembled my new (and very heavy!) desk by myself in the living room. About to move the laptop in there. Now need to get the trash cleared, and the floor cleaned. Just need a new sofa, and my living room will be complete!

Which reminds me, really looking forward to the player housing areas. I haven't seen the Gridania or Ul'dah areas, but I took a look around Mist during beta. Beautiful!

The side effects of FFXIV downtime include but are not limited to:

- Changes in blood pressure, heart rates, and breathing rates
- Nausea
- Anxiety
- Convulsions
- Insomnia
- Loss of appetite leading to malnutrition and weight loss
- Cold sweats
- Restlessness and anxiety
- Possible heart attacks, strokes, or convulsions

Coincidentally these are also the same symptoms of crack withdrawal Smiley: laugh

Playing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F on PS3, US version came out last week, that game is beyond addicting... I played the Japanese version a year ago, and I still can barely pull myself away.

I only had time to log on for a total for 4 hours in the past week anyway since I've been out of town.

Today (ironically) was the first day that I had time to play after work. I finished two quests in about 20mins before the server went down.

I've visited some family earlier and now I'm watching Breaking Bad.
