There appears to be some major internet problems on the east coast at
the moment, which hopefully wont last too long, but can result in loss
of connection for several minutes at a time.
This happens in such a way that it is possible to get left online. I
would advise all of you to use TIMEOUT ON when you log in to ensure that
you don't get stuck online, especially if you may not be in a position
to always come back to ensure your character has been logged out.
I'll take this chance to remind everyone that while it is considered bad
etiquette to attack persons who are link dead, it can and does happen. You
are each responsible for your own character so take heed.
