Come on! Think outside the boxes!
I'm guessing you're not from an IT background, and have never seen a server room before, nor know anything about how they run.... so instead of trying to explain it to another poker player, ill point you in the direction of one of the bigger servers in Canada
... you know Nortel? they're long gone now... but the canadian gov tried buying their old server... guess how big it is?
you betcha, a whole ****ing building. now nortel only went under because of chinese spies placing bugs all over their server; hence the canadian gov not being able to buy it (it was for their "defense" sector lol.. right?)
now one would think, why not just remove the bugs?...its simple - get new servers... reset them, why don't you.... and to those people, i laugh... simply since they dont know the first thing about networking......
they always make it sound so simple when they have no idea whats going on.... its funny how you guys make it seem so hard when... you have no idea whats going on......
do you know how a server works, and resets? or why?
answer those two questions and you'll start to understand the reasoning behind not wanting to keep open an extra million tables for 5 minutes while servers are clearing out....
dont answer them, dont reply... cuz i dont like teaching poker players IT every poker player uses it, nearly none actually understand it though....
i bet you don't believe in roboplayers or admin accounts that access all cards... but hey, you wouldnt even know where to begin looking just remember that i've already looked
have you seen the size of the PS server?.... if you havent even seen it, why comment... lol
