The Server has been down for the last 3 hours or so - to check whether it is back up you can try the command "ping atokar.is-a-geek.net" which says "request timed out" when the Server is down.

Or you can keep trying in the new client - when the Server is down it will say "connection failed" as you are experiencing

It's a shame that they don't have mirror servers in case of failure... This is SO depressing... :( :(

Afaik Cleo is the only one who can do anything about the Server (Kiana's Server is entirely separate), so I think all we can do is wait for Cleo :)

It depends on whether Cleo is busily working on it, or whether he is currrently taking a well-deserved holiday!!!

We definitely need more servers, as backup... :(

The main server has been down since yesterday at noon. See: Main Server down
My test server currently runs the latest version of Atrinik. If you want to check out the new client feel free to connect. Lets hope the Main Server will be back online soon.

Estimated cost to me: 8 million exp points; 5 stones+3; 1 stone+2; 1 day shorter life due to frustration.

Poor poor Floozy.

Still, Kiana very very nicely removed my depletion caused by the connection failure - many many thanks :):):):):)

I guess Cleo only owes me about 20 PoIs then!

Problem was Internet connection outage that should be fixed now, apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

Kiana throws her server up whenever the main goes down; however, having other servers would be nice. If only we had the money to do this! Of course, if you already have a server and can host Atrinik on it, then maybe Cleo can get you put in the list and figure out a way to keep the two in sync or something so that they're both talking to each other but if one goes down the other(s) can continue on without the one(s) that has(ve) dropped out?

It's just technically impossible for us to have a real-time synchronized back-up server. We're not Google ;)
Cleo's working on a better host. Actually, we recently switched servers AFAIK. 8)

Maybe putting Atrinik into the Google Code Base could get Atrinik a nice little real-time synchronized backup server?  :shifty:
