WOW Burning Crusade upgrade install:

For putting up a dialog at the start to allow you to upgrade your account, while CD changes continue in the background, thereby cutting down total install time: 10/10
For having an entry box for the authorisation code that is limited to two thirds the actual length of the code: 0/10

Both gmh and myself created new (Dranei) characters on Earthen Ring. Should you fancy joining us in the race towards 60, I mean, 70. :-)

Hmm, definitely odd.

In that case, 1/10, for failing to test it on a clean install of XP Pro SP2.

('Clean' as in the OS only went onto the empty disc about 48 hours earlier.)

At least on going to the web page, that worked.
