The lights are on
By auctioning off old server blades that used to house the World of Warcraft, Blizzard was able to raise $330,000 for charity.
It's odd to think that, yes, technically that piece of hardware used to house the virtual world of Warcraft. It's kind of like the city of Kandor, the Kryptonian city miniaturized and kept as a collectible on Brainiac's shelf. It's like the folks who won the auctions are Superman, stealing Kandor away from Brainiac to keep on his own shelf in the Fortress of Solitude. It's more or less exactly the same thing.
Thanks to Laust for the news tip!

That's just lovely.
Hopefully when MS buys them out, they still do this stuff. Good job Blizzard. You're doing the world a favor.
Proud of them.
Wow!!! That's so nice of Blizzard to do that for them! Kudos, to Blizzard everyone.
Good to see.

It's always good to help needy charities and people. Rah rah Blizzard. ;-)
And people say video games are bad for you.
I think thats great and us GIO people should help alot more charitys.
This is awesome! Blizzard gets good publicity, a fan gets an awesome, one of a kind, piece of memorabilia, and children are going to be helped. This is a win-win-win situation.
That's good news.
Nice job Blizzard. Maybe more companies will do the same.
Well done Blizzard!!!
