OT: Important announcement for WinXP users

A new patch came out on Saturday/Friday that replaces the old driver for the ip connection on your computer. You have to go to support.microsoft.com or click on the automatic update icon in the taskbar to begin downloading.

There are 3 downloads if you have not downloaded before:
The first download updates the updater.
The second download updates critical patches.
The third update is the one that is very important. it has the microsoft service pack for windows and contains 17 files total. the service pack itself is around 375 megs. After downloading, you may experience a stoppage of internet service. this is normal when the old driver is removed and before the new driver is used.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS SERVICE PACK, YOUR D2 GAME WILL EXPERIENCE HUGE PINGS, LAGS AND DEATHS.

For people in hawaii using the roadrunner service, i believe roadrunner updated the software on their servers on friday, which is what is causing this problem. to fix it, do as instructed above.

Please spread the word to update windows.
