One of the other games I play is having some...errrr....difficulties with their servers. At one point, the server I want to use was described as "obstinate". Not knowing what to make of this, I searched around for some definitions.

"Obstinate: The afflicted device tends to emit destructive bolts of plasma energy, strangles technicians with creeping tentacles of wire, and/or fires intermittent bursts of hex screws at velocities of 500 ft/sec or more".

When the deflicted server improves from "Obstinate" to "Unstable", it is somewhat easier to fix.

"Unstable: The temporal rift that has been creating a direct connection between the server and HELL has closed enough so that only the smallest demons can squeeze through. These can typically be slain with a sharpened screwdriver. Ravenous hordes of flesh-eating maggots no longer ooze from the power supply, and the graphics department is not generally required to act as fire support. At this point, the bones of previous technicians can be safely recovered and repairs can proceed with minimal risk of death or dismemberment"
