I expect a decent patch of a couple of hours. Nope it's a mega patch. At least for me on DSL. *sigh* Okay, I'll let it patch overnight.

SERVER WIDE ANNOUNCEMENT: Hey folks. We're bringing the servers down because Grunty logged in for the first time in 6 months. We'll be back in a couple of hours.
Maybe... (evil laughter).
