patching

AO is the main topic, but you can also talk about things like the latest console game you've played, web comics, movies, music, etc. as they pertain to your AO experience.

Many clients, especially when you first start out patching, have problems serially patching the 17.x series all at once. Try closing the client after every patch. If you have Windows Vista, turn off User Access Control or install AO into a directory other than program files.
