    Anyone ever tinkered with one before?

    I just set one up at home for me and a few friends. Seems to be working thus far. The only lag I experience is when my system is too slow. LOL

    I played on one a bit around the time I quit. The public ones are actually pretty cool because some have a few hundred people on them. They accelerate the level and gear drops so you don't spend as much time grinding, but the items mean less in the long run. There are some servers with normal or close to normal rules, too.

    If I were to go back to wow it'd likely be in the form of a private server. Though oddly a lot of people that play on private servers have a legit accounts.

    I'm down if it's on a private server just for kicks... can't dedicate the time/money to legit anymore. :)

    Word.

    I might be able to muster some enthusiasm if I didn't have to pay the monthly subscription fee.

    That's exactly why I want to do it. I don't get enough opportunity to play it when I pay for it, so I might as well NOT pay for it and play.

    Plus, it's spurring the need for a new machine. :D My CPU is starting to overheat a little too much.

    The plot thickens.

    My one buddy is a system administrator and they have a server that they don't need anymore. Dell PowerEdge 2400 with 512MB ECC Ram, 2x18GB SCSI and 2x73GB SCSI Ultra320, 2xPIII 866 processors.

    It's in the works. For $100...can't complain. :D

    I don't mind the monthly fee. I prefer the MM in my MMORPG.
