Weapons of Mass Distraction


Having trouble getting your laptop fixed today? You’re not alone. Blizzard Entertainment took a massive digital dump on IT departments all over the country today with its 12:00AM release of Wrath of the Lich King, which is the latest installment in the massively mutliplayer online timewaster World of Warcraft.

The outbreak of productivity drain will follow the same pattern of “Prequelitis“, the phenomenon which gripped IT departments when so many IT guys called in sick the day after a midnight showing of The 1999 Star Wars prequel movie The Phantom Menace.

In other words, today is basically the day after a night binge drinking. For geeks.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a Death Knight to create.
