The long-awaited migration of the European Megaserver in Elder Scrolls Online is happening tomorrow the 30th of July and will begin at 8:00AM EDT (1:00PM BST) and is expected to last until 5:00PM EDT (10:00PM BST). So if you’re a player on that server you better plan something else to do during that time frame. Only the European server will be unavailable during the time; if you got your character on the North American server you won’t be affected and can game on as usual.
There won’t be any change to any characters or progress nor any patch to download. It is purely a physical location change of the servers to Frankfurt, Germany. Bethesda also said that it won’t be possible to move a character created on the North American Megaserver to the new European server, but the phrasing could hint a possibility for this in the future.
Moving everything to a new data center is a complex operation and is the reasoning for them to do the move during prime-time. “A server move like this involves a large amount of engineers and support staff in both Europe and North America that need to be awake and ready.”
Rumors are that Intel and various tech related companies are showing interest in experimenting with and entering the brain-computer-interface market, according to Mind Solutions. The BCI is said to be a dedicated communication pathway between the human brain and a device, having early focus on helping medical patients recover from severe physical injuries.
Mind Solutions hopes to make the BCI technology more familiar and opened to everyone, with the help of Intel and other companies that wish to contribute to the project, over the next few years. When technology will overcome the neurons in the human brain, with the increasing number in PC transistors, there is great potential for long-term development.
“We will finally remove the fiction from the science fiction,” said Mooly Eden, Intel head of perceptual computing, during CES. It will be possible to “open a car door with our finger, receive constant information about our health” along with using devices that “interface directly with your brain.”
Mind Solutions is not looking to make it to the top with BCI, they hope that a major tech company enters the market with it and is looking more to get involved in a fairly small partnership.
