How are you able to see the timestamp of the last metaserver update?

Only Developers can see that and some other server info.

Is this a bug then, b/c Cleo told me that the MS updated every 5 min. Therefore, metaserver shouldn't be reporting to my client that it's able to see the main server, n'est pas?

The server updates to the metaserver every 5 minutes. If the server stops reporting, the data stays listed on meta for 24 hours until updated once more. This also explains why there appear to be  people on (Atrinikbot, Cleo, Idicus, Gramlath, Floozy).

So is there any word as to what's going on with the main server? Or has anyone heard from Cleo about this? It's been over 24 hours now, I think ... ?

Yup - about 45 minutes left until 24 hours!  metaserver is also failing now - maybe the problem is quite extensive.  I am keeping all fingers crossed for Cleo.

Its a good time time improve your website stats though - I am now 9th in the "Most Time Online" stats and climbing!!!!  A long way behind your 1d 2h 53m though!!!

All the best

I'm starting to think either something happened to Cleo or his computer. I certainly hope he wasn't attacked (cyber-attack) by the angry mob who banned me from that other game ... :/ (yeah I'm a worry-wort).

The reason I'm thinking this is because unlike last time, I'm actually able to see traceroute work its way into Slovakia; it might be failing in trying to connect to Cleo's server, which physically is located there.

I just hope he's OK ... I worry about the kid, y'know? :(

Hmmmm ... I see what you mean about Cleo. Let's try some deductive reasoning:

There are 4 systems involved: The main server; the metaserver; the website server; and Cleo's personal computer.

iirc the metaserver should continue to list the servers, and if the main server hasn't responded for 24 hours it simply uses the last known information.  Now the client is reporting "Metaserver failed", which to me implies there is no connection.  I do not know the IP address of the metaserver so cannot check.  It was definitely working yesterday though, long after the main server went down, so something has happened in the meantime - maybe Cleo is doing something with that computer?

The website server Atrinik.org resolves to box572.bluehost.com [66.147.242.172] and is penultimately routed via Los Angeles so its a hosted website.  There has been no sign of Cleo on the website since the main Server went down which could be either a) he is too busy sorting out the problem or b) as you suspect his personal computer is also down.  If the main server and his personal computer are the same machine with a big problem now (e.g. HDD crash); or they are at the same location with, for example, a power failure; that would explain b).  Does anyone know?

iirc the only official way to contact Cleo is admin@Atrinik.org, which he wouldn't be able to read/reply to if his personal computer was also down or if a) above is correct!!!  Unless anyone knows a mobile number, for example, more information is required before we can deduce what is happening I am afraid.

Very sorry I cannot be more helpful.

Kind regards

Seems there was some network failure that lasted almost exactly 24 hours; perhaps some DNS failure or such. Seems to be working again, sorry for any inconvenience.

Yup, I was right. The traceroute was held up right before it hit the server. IOW, the server was down, it wasn't the US/SK connection (for once).

I'm going to update FB/T w/ status of MS being back up now. Yippeeeee!  :lol:
