A Conversation for Categorisation of Queues and a Guide to Queuing
Biocorp Started conversation Oct 14, 2009
There's a somewhat new (I say somewhat... s'been around for a while now) phenomenon that's appeared on the glorious Internets. File distribution services, particularly for game mods, patches, demos and the like now allow you to join a virtual queue, waiting in "line" until it's your turn to download.
Steam does this, too. Joining a full game server requires you to wait in line until someone else has kindly been disconnected/ragequit/banned/actually left of their own accord.
It's like all the fun of standing around staring awkwardly at the walls, but without the real life sense of accompishment.
