Upcoming Code: TITHE

Boreas says, 'any code changes?'

Boreas prods the welcome board.

Kaige says, 'Ea's headed home, he should have that up in a bit'

Kaige says, 'but yes.'

Boreas nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'lots'

ArchAngel bows deeply.

LadyAce giggles.

Kaige says, 'and some next week too'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'that idea for a clan tithe that came up before is going in next week.'

Chaykin says, 'clan tithe?'

Emrysia cheers for Kaige - huzzah!

Emrysia giggles.

An aura of heavenly light appears above Emrysia's head.

ArchAngel says, 'should organize some more activities where you can gain coupons'

Boreas says, 'oh no, now I 'ave to be nice to me guildmaster'

Kaige says, 'completely and utterly configurable for each clan and person.'

Geber says, 'clan tithe?'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Boreas's head.

ArchAngel says, 'what do you mean by clan tithe????'

ArchAngel says, 'i am a gm of a clan so i'd like to know what you mean by that'

Boreas says, 'so that when you deposit, a percentage goes automatically into the clan account?'

Kaige says, 'basically a tool that lets the GM set a minimum percentage that gets taken from all member's deposits and put into the clan account.'

Kaige says, 'if you give me a second I'll be able to type it all OUT'

ArchAngel nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'and also you'll be able to set personal levels as well, so you can split deposits between the two accounts and not have to think about it.'

Geber says, 'what about us greedy money hungry types?'

ArchAngel says, 'sounds like a good deal and this affects the gm to i imagine'

Boreas says, 'I give everything to my clan anyway'

Nexela screams loudly!

Nexela licks Kaige.

Nexela peers at Deanna, looking her up and down.

Kaige says, 'it's basically just a tool that GMs can use so that a clan hall doesn't overburden one or two chars that do all the contributing.'

Kaige says to Boreas, 'then you could set yours to 100% and use deposit instead of clandep'

Boreas nods solemnly.

Nexela says, 'what do what where'

LadyAce says, 'So say I'm GM and I set the tithe to 10%.'

Chaykin says to Nexela, 'eww a shroud. you brought enough must in here to choke a dustbuster!'

Kaige says, 'which is the max possible, btw.'

LadyAce says, 'Kaige doesn't want money, and she sets hers to 100%'

LadyAce says, 'but Deanna is in my clan too and only wants to give the minimum'

LadyAce says, 'so she leaves hers at 10%'

Boreas says, 'that seems rather low for a max'

Kaige says to Boreas, 'for the GM to require. each member can go all the way to 100% if they want'

Boreas says, 'what if somebody sets 50%. Do they then deposit 60%, or does it override?'

LadyAce says, 'higher number would override'

Boreas nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'the higher of the two applies'

ArchAngel says, 'its set at what the person wants to have it set at then?'

Boreas says, 'good then I don't 'ave to do math'

LadyAce says, 'so you can't go under the GM's minimum'

LadyAce says, 'you have to give as much as the GM says, or more.'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says to ArchAngel, 'make sense?'

Kaige says, 'but they all default to zero. The amounts will show up in statement and it'll be announced on the clan channel when the GM changes it.'

Boreas says, 'I do think 10% max for GM's requiring is fairly low. I can imagine a clan with an extensive guild'all easily asking for 50%'

LadyAce says, 'If you're being oppressively tithed, I spose you could vote in a new GM :)'

Boreas nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says, '10% was the arbitrary number I stuck in... easy to change it and part of the reason I brought it up here.'

Boreas says, 'well, per'aps you'll see 'ow it goes with 10% and up the max later.'

Chaykin says, 'no taxation without representation!'

Nexela licks Emrysia.

LadyAce says, 'seems like a max isn't needed'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'pledge is your representation mechanism.'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Kaige.

Nexela pledges his fealty to Emrysia.

Nexela pledges his fealty to Nexela.

Kaige says, 'well but if you're in a PK clan with a timer, you're kinda stuck not depositing ANYTHING or it'll get sucked into the clan account until you can abandon if you've got a jerk of a Gm'

Masha says, 'so what's the command, then?'

Kaige says, 'tithe'

LadyAce says, 'it hasn't gone in yet (it'll be tithe)'

Kaige says, 'not this week, but next'

Masha nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'as in not tomorrow, but next friday'

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'well, that seems like "part of being in a clan" or something. I guess you could say 99% as a max or somethin'

Ea! says, 'modem'

Nexela cheers for Ea! - huzzah!

Boreas says, 'I think 80% would be a good max.'

Nexela waves his hands around.

Kaige says, 'I've just heard from so many GMs that no one bothers to contribute to the expenses of a clan hall, but also a few people who were talking about this said they wouldn't have any part of it or a clan that used it.'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

Kaige says, 'so it's set up as a tool that can be tailored to the clan.'

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'well, but then they could choose clans that don't use the feature, I spose. Or vote in/out GMs accordingly, etc.'

Kaige says, 'I'm not sure how fair it would be to REQUIRE more than 50%...'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'yup.. which is why it defaults and can be set to 0.'

LadyAce says, 'yeah, it might not be a good move for a GM to put it up too high'

Boreas says, 'will there be a command so clan members can see the tithe, or maybe put it as part of the roster?'

Kaige says to Boreas, 'statement like you get for clanhall costs now'

Emrysia says, 'personally i think 10% is a fair max.'

Boreas nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'and deposit will tell you how much goes to each account'

Nexela says to Kaige, 'QUIT writing tithe and write some areas'

Nexela ducks to the ground.

Ea! says, 'I like the "vote out Gms who don't agree with you" policy.'

Kaige says to Nexela, 'worked on that some today too.'

Boreas says to Emrysia, 'I'm surprised that you wouldn't want it higher, cause you have a large hall'

Nexela cheers for Kaige - huzzah!

Nexela beams at Haley delightedly.

Ea! says, 'I mean, a religious order might have a vow of poverty -- all money must go to the church.'

Boreas nods her agreement with Ea!.

Geber says, 'well, I have nothing to complain about'

Chaykin says, 'this is what's called "tough love"'

Emrysia says to Boreas, 'we've supported it so far, I don't see any reason to overburden the members, most of them have housing costs of their own as well'

Kaige says to Ea!, 'and that can be done.. just have to trust the members to do it like in rl'

Kaige giggles.

Geber waves happily.

Boreas says, 'they shouldn't buy houses if they can't afford it. The clanhall comes first.'


Roster Long

Kaige says, 'so how do you guys like the changes to roster long? I noticed a lot of people learned about that command for the first time'

Boreas says, 'I like it a lot'

Kaige says, 'since we're talking clan stuff...'

Chaykin says, 'my question was about that'

LadyAce says, 'ok, good :)'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'go for it'

Chaykin says, 'neat segue eh?'

Chaykin giggles.

Masha says, 'i like the new roster long. works great now'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Boreas says, 'eep, I've fallen in the ranks!'

Kaige giggles at Boreas.

Chaykin says, 'could we please either have a) an option to display the list ordered by who joined first, like before, or b) add a "member since" string?'

Kaige says, 'hard to do a member since on the existing clans...'

Ea! looks up into the sky and ponders.

Ea! nods his agreement with Kaige.

Chaykin says, 'well, it would have everyone already a member be the same date'

Chaykin says, 'but it would take effect for the future'

Chaykin says, 'I guess'

LadyAce says, 'same with the clan since thing'

Kaige says, 'well yeah... creation date would probably be easiest there'

Boreas says, 'member since December 30, 1969'

Ea! says, 'yeah, I wish I knew what caused that.'

Chaykin says, 'but jeez, it's hard to pull rank on the newbies without being able to see who's got tenure!!'

Chaykin ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'I hate that bug. but I dunno where to even start looking for that one.'

Boreas laughs with amusement.

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'I'll see what we can do. figure something out'

Boreas says, 'well, at least it is a harmless bug'

LadyAce giggles at Chaykin.

Kaige nods her agreement with Boreas.

Nexela says, 'Its a manifesting bug....'

Nexela ducks to the ground.

Chaykin says to Kaige, 'thank you :) otherwise I like the colors and whatnot, it helps see who's not pulling their weight'

Nexela says, 'it gets bigger as we speak'

Masha says to Kaige, 'the only thing i can say about the colors is have the last pk battle in bright red so it's easier to see.'

Kaige says, 'red is if it's over 3 weeks'

Masha nods her agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'it's the "really not adding anything to your clan and the gm should consider kicking them out" color.'


Logins on Clan Channel?

Nexela says, 'What about something where the clan gets a message when someone logs in/out'

Kaige says to Nexela, 'my mort's clan always gets a message when I log in. =)'

Emrysia says to Nexela, 'it's called saying hello'

Boreas says, 'I check roster as soon as I log in and say 'ello if anyone is on'

Emrysia tickles Nexela.

Nexela glares icily at Emrysia.

Nexela says, 'its not the same thing'

LadyAce says, 'could add something to your client I spose'

Kaige says, 'yeah.. it's warmer?'

Emrysia says to Nexela, 'yah, it means you have to type something :P'

Nexela says, 'It would be nice though to not have to type something even make it a user option to turn on and off'

Boreas says, 'I just don't see how it would add anything'

ArchAngel says, 'thats just being lazy as i see it'

Kaige says, 'clans are a social institution, why remove some of that?'

Ea! says, 'In general, we don't like adding things that give you magic information -- stuff that you wouldn't normally see...'

Nexela says, 'its not removing anything :P'

LadyAce says, 'I think in general we try to encourage interaction'

Chaykin says, 'just say hi, it's not exactly hard'

Nexela says, 'what about chat tells gossip auction'

Nexela ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'or make it easier to not have to be social? People complain already their clans don't mean much to them.. we're trying to make it more meaningful in subtle ways'

LadyAce says, 'encourage non-automated stuff, it's why we're not fans of info triggers'

LadyAce says, 'people level, there's a trigger, people complain that no one means it ...'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Chaykin says, 'before housing, clan channels were never used, and believe it or not clan members still found a way to communicate'

Nexela says, 'ok so strike that avenue dead.....'


Housing Title/Desc Changes?

Nexela says, 'What are the rules on changing room titles....'

LadyAce says, 'you can add your name or clan name'

LadyAce says, 'or remove them.'

Nexela nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'no other options, it's been discussed already ... this is policy.'

Nexela says, 'and what about customizing room descs :P'

Nexela winks suggestively.

LadyAce shakes her head.

Chaykin says, 'would it be possible to have a name change approval from the builder of that area? after all, the whole reason you only add names is because you want the builder's area to retain its feel'

LadyAce says, 'again, policy, sorry, no can do'

Nexela says, 'cause my room desc says theres a pallet in the room but I got rid of it along time ago :P'

Kaige says, 'If you find a room title/type that you need desperately cause none of the available ones match... suggest it to the builder responsible for the area. They might agree it'd be a good idea.'

Chaykin says, 'if the builder of the area approves, it still can't be done?'

LadyAce says, 'no, we're just limited it to what's been written into the area file'

Kaige says, 'if they approve it, it'll be an option using the build command.'

LadyAce says, 'or what's added by request and made available to everyone'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Chaykin says, 'well I understand that...but I guess what I think is missing out of housing is individuality...'

Chaykin shrugs philosophically.


Weather and Special Affects?

Nexela says, 'and why isnt Cheyla here my next question is her area :P'

LadyAce says to Nexela, 'we might be able to answer it -- otherwise, mudmail :)'

Nexela says, 'Its more of a flame.... WHY do I run the risk of snowblindness EVERY tick'

Kaige says, 'are you wearing dark shades?'

Kaige giggles.

Nexela says, 'thats a little too much for someone that loves that area...'

Kaige doesn't know if that's an option, but seems like it might be logical.

Dude says, 'well i love AT... i shouldn't be able to die in it'

Boreas says, 'on control weather and get a few clouds'

Nexela says to Dude, 'thats different! :P'

Kaige nods her agreement with Boreas.

Kaige giggles.

Dude says, 'alright, i'll settle for all of crusades minus AT =P'

Dude nudges LadyAce.

Nexela gets the feeling he is getting laughed at....

Dude winks suggestively at LadyAce.

LadyAce giggles.

Boreas says, 'well, I don't know if the snowblindness is random or based on the weather. If not it should be'

Kaige says to Boreas, 'ideas like that are useful for builders'

Nexela says, 'last time I was there didnt check weather but got a message every tick'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Boreas.

Nexela says, 'hmm brb'

Boreas says, 'same with when you are wandering in aboriginal dreamtime and got hot and thirsty'

Kaige nudges the big cardboard box containing slips marked IDEA.

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.


Preservable Balms?

Nexela pokes a vile vial of balm - It's dead, Nexela.

Nexela says, 'I wanna preserve this..........'

Nexela says, 'but I cant'

Dude says, 'oh a demonstrational aid!'

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

Ea! says, 'Correct.'

Nexela says, 'nuff said and I have a feeling it was ideaed'

ArchAngel says, 'if you create them generally you use them right away in most cases'

Chaykin says, 'why should it be preservable?'

Kaige says, 'it's set up in a way that preserving it would make it completely unbalanced.'

LadyAce says, 'it's intentional that you can't, basically.'

Nexela says to Kaige, 'well I think its unbalanced for a druid to go around with 40 preserved poults'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Nexela's head.

Chaykin says, 'that's a point'

LadyAce says, 'well, we're trying not to make problems worse :)'

ArchAngel says, 'most creates make the balms with a purpose to use them on someone right away anyways'

Dude says, 'specially when 3c create gives up a lot more stat for his abilities'

Kaige makes poultices and uses 'em.

Kaige says, 'but then my druid's cause, not create'

Dude says to Kaige, 'well some ppl dont?'

Boreas says, 'but making all those poults and preserving them takes a lot more mana'

ArchAngel goes and makes A LOT of use of the Romanian cup!!!

Dude says, 'yeah but then you can sit back for a half hour and regen'

Nexela says, 'but still if you have 30 100spir poults and are PKing....'

Dude says, 'then go kill something and have 15 auggies to heal yourself with'

Boreas says, 'I just don't think that mages should be complaining that they can't heal as well as healers.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Boreas.

Dude says, 'mage rights!'

Dude says, 'down with healers!'

Boreas says, 'if you want to complain, complain about causies healing better than creates'

Nexela says, 'but still.... a preserved balm would really be nice sometimes'

Dude says, 'create needs 3c healing!'

LadyAce says, 'Ok, let's be a bit more organized.'

Nexela nods his agreement with Dude.

ArchAngel says, 'personally i think there should a travel version of the romania cup that you cant rent out'

ArchAngel nods to himself - he must be getting senile.

ArchAngel says, 'but thats just my opinion... i head there too often'

Boreas giggles at ArchAngel.


Owned EQ & Crashes?

Nexela says, 'well If no one is gonna speak up then I might as well go ahead and ask this REALLY long thing'

LadyAce says, 'go on ahead :)'

Lorenzo peers at Nexela, looking him up and down.

Nexela says, 'ok bear with me.....'

Lenore peers at Chaykin, looking him up and down.

Nexela says, 'WEEKS ago I died went and got MOST of my stuff from my corpse'

Nexela says, 'didnt see the rest so I rented out'

Nexela says, 'Mud crashes'

Nexela says, 'I come back say hmm my Stuff was owned'

Nexela says, 'I retrieve it'

Boreas says, 'owned by somebody else?'

Nexela says, 'Mud crashes I didnt save'

Nexela says, 'owned by me it was on my corpse'

Chaykin winces.

ArchAngel blinks.

Nexela says, 'ok Come back and I have EVERYTHING from my last save'

Ea! says, 'when you get the last item out of your corpse, you're forced to save.'

Chaykin says, 'what an unlucky chain of events'

Nexela says, 'wasnt on corpse'

Nexela says, 'corpse poofed'

Nexela says, 'owned on ground'

Deanna slowly fades into thin air.

Nexela says, 'back to where I was'

Ea! says, 'yeah, then you're out of luck.'

Nexela says, 'Sandra tried to answer but she wasnt sure'

LadyAce says, 'picking up an item removes ownership, if it's yours'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Nexela says, 'why though I think If you picked up Owned eq it should automatically save you not just the eq'

Ea! says, 'We tried it -- it caused too much lag.'

Boreas says, 'happened to an alt of mine once, that the mud kept crashing while I was trying to get my stuff, and overrent, but it all worked out fine in the end'

Nexela says, 'I think though that was kinda stupid'

Boreas says, 'make a 'abit of saving.'

Nexela says, 'I went back to my last save and had stuff that I sold/traded but my eq doesnt come back'

Nexela says, 'happened bout 5 mins after I picked it up'

Ea! says, 'ugly crashes cause that. there's not much we can do about that.'

Nexela says, 'I think it was a safe crash not sure though'

Nexela says, 'no it was a booboo one'

Nexela sighs loudly.

Ea! says, 'If it was safe, it'd have saved it.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Ea!.

Nexela says, 'so why cant owned Eq be tied directly to player save'

Ea! says, ''cause it would cause too much lag.'

Kaige says, 'because it caused too much lag for everyone when it was saving every "get" on owned eq.'

Ea! says, 'we tried it. the mud froze.'

Nexela says, 'Im not saying like that...'

Lorenzo looks up into the sky and ponders.

Kaige says, 'as it is now, it saves on the last piece from your corpse. and if the crash was 5 minutes after you got your stuff, you had plenty of time to hit save.'

Ea! says, 'For us to be able to load the items into the game, we need to have it keep track of which room the items were saved in.'

Nexela says, 'Like If the mud crashed and I picked up owned eq and didnt save When Legend comes back I should be able to go where I died and get it'

Kaige says, '5 seconds I can understand.'

Kaige says to Nexela, 'if it crashes politely, you shouldn't have a problem.'

Nexela says to Kaige, 'Im not fighting for a reimb Just curious as to why owned eq becomes unowned like it does'

Ea! says, 'owned eq. becomes unowned when it's picked up by the owner, or after 3 RL days.'

Kaige says, 'it becomes unowned because if it didn't, duplicates would reappear in that room again the next start up.'

LadyAce says, 'the eq wouldn't stick around after crash if it was in your inv and owned'

Nexela says, 'then it should stay OWNED until the owner saves :P'

LadyAce says, 'it wouldn't make a difference if the eq was owned in your inv, you'd still lose it at a crash when it's not saved'

Nexela says, 'or something'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

ArchAngel says, 'if you pick something up and drop you like saying you dont care for it'

Nexela says, 'then why doesnt it go back to where it was before crash'

Nexela ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'because in the case of that ugly crash there was no record of it being anywhere'

Chaykin says, 'you had bad luck, it happens. the imms have to strike a balance between everyone being safe from losing stuff all the time, and having a mud that runs at the speed of the county fair tortoise race'

Kaige says, 'unlike a polite crash that goes through and saves everyone and everything it can.'

Nexela nods his agreement with Chaykin.

ArchAngel says, 'whenever i get anything of mine i make sure to save so i dont worry about losing it but thats just me too'

Nexela says, 'ok cleaning up about what I was saying earlier (if I missed an answer I'll read it on webpage) Owned eq should stay saved and the point it was last at until owner saves'

Boreas nods her agreement with ArchAngel.

Nexela pants.

Boreas says, 'I also save because I know about what my rent is, so I can tell that I have everything by that'

Ea! says to Nexela, 'It would cause too much lag.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Boreas.

Nexela says, 'ok I guess thats settled'

LadyAce says, 'okie, I think that's covered, yea...next? :)'

Nexela peers at LadyAce, looking her up and down.

LadyAce says to Nexela, 'do you have another?'

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

LadyAce appreciates you thinking up all these queries in advance, it makes the time a good use for all of us :)

LadyAce smiles at Nexela.

Nexela says, 'balm, owned eq, message to clan, room titles/desc'

Nexela says, 'not till I gather more evidence of a faulty quest in your Area LA :p'


Games this Weekend?

Boreas says, 'just a quick question, is there going to be a leprechaun hunt this weekend?'

LadyAce says, 'I don't know, actually.'

Kaige says, 'I haven't heard anything about one.'

Kaige looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'you could ask Kae or Cheyla'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Boreas nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'All I know about is the casino game, and of course there's always the blarney stone :)'

Boreas says, 'what's the blarney stone?'

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

LadyAce says, 'he's kissable :)'

ArchAngel says, 'irish stone :P'

LadyAce says, 'just a fun guy who runs around'

Boreas wrinkles her nose with distaste.

Tobias chuckles politely.

LadyAce says, 'you get good luck :)'

LadyAce giggles.

ArchAngel says, 'oh if thats all i'll just get a group and kill him1!!'


Music Board in OOC?

Tobias says, 'Is there a music board in OOC?'

LadyAce says, 'music?'

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

Boreas says, 'you could put songs in the poetry tome'

Tobias says, 'Yeah. We got a computer board, for comp/site stuffs, was wondering if there was one for music.'

Kaige says, 'I'd use the imac for that too if you wanted to share something'

LadyAce says, 'if ya don't see one, we don't have one -- you can always use idea and suggest it :) Describe what use you think it'd be, etc.'

Tobias laughs with amusement.

Tobias nods solemnly.

Lorenzo says to Tobias, 'just uuencode your midi files and paste them onto the iMac :)'

Copies of Spin and RollingStone magazines have been left on the table here.

Tobias says to Lorenzo, 'Heh. I meant more like recommending bands and junk ^_~'


Is there an OOC Bank?

Nexela says, 'is there a bank OOC :P'

ArchAngel says, 'why do you need a bank in ooc?'

Nexela laughs at Lorenzo.

Nexela says, 'so I can buy a pepsi :P'

LadyAce says, 'well, that'd certainly make money runs easier :P no need to find any bankers. Which is why...no :)'

Nexela looks up into the sky and ponders.

Kaige says, 'and besides many innkeepers that you have to find anyway, are bankers'

Nexela says, 'want about OOC banks separate from Ic banks :P'

Boreas says, 'or have one a few rooms away'

Kaige nods her agreement with Boreas.

Nexela says, 'nearest banker to me is 17 rooms away when IC'

ArchAngel says, 'why do you need ooc banks? so you can be lazy?'

Boreas says, 'right, we need a bank ooc for when I money run in the builder's wing'

Boreas grins evilly.

LadyAce giggles at Boreas.



Masha says, 'any idea when a tiny plot could be run?'

LadyAce says, 'if you want my help, it'd hafta be when I can do it -- m/w eves, sa/su anytime'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Masha nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Masha says to LadyAce, 'just wondering. hoping to be a whole mud-wide thing.'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'weekends are usually best for that'

LadyAce says, 'particularly weekend afternoons'


Client Problems

Violence says, 'Well not really sure how you guys can help but here it is'

Violence says, 'Why would my mud client start refusing to allow me to connect?'

Boreas is completely boggled.

Kaige says, 'what client?'

Violence says, 'Zmud'

ArchAngel says, 'good question'

Lorenzo shudders.

Kaige says, 'is it only after you lose link?'

Violence shakes his head.

Violence says, 'it wont let me connect period, tries to look up th ip address'

ArchAngel says, 'did you try to use the worded address?'

Kaige says, 'ah... sounds like a DNS server issue on your side'

LadyAce says, 'hit the calculator button to re-lookup the IP?'

Violence says, 'yep still cant connect, even telnet dont work'

Boreas says, 'are you sure that it is just your client, and not the mud crashed?'

Violence says, 'I'm very sure its not the client'

Kaige says, 'a few times the past week or so there've been router problems in chicago, which made the machine unreachable by pretty much everyone.'

Kaige says, 'but if it's all the time... I'm not sure what it could be.'

Violence says, 'I've tried a new version of Zmud, mudmaster, telnet, all don't work'

Violence says, 'yet here I can use my wife's computer just fine'

ArchAngel says, 'where are you located like what city? it could be your location not being able to get through'

Boreas says, 'maybe then it's your modem'

Chaykin says, 'could be your isp has an unreliable link to the net backbone'

Violence says, 'Cant be that the other computer works just fine'

Lorenzo says to Violence, 'click on the "yes, I will reboot now, and bow prostrate before the almighty Gates" button.'

Chaykin says, 'well that right there tells you it's not the mud'

LadyAce says, 'your network setting on that computer....'

Ea! says to Violence, 'Sounds like your DNS settings on your machine are set wrong...'

Violence nods solemnly.

Violence says, 'hmm wonder how the got changed one day was fine the next not'

Violence frowns.

Lorenzo says to Violence, 'do you use DHCP?'

Nexela says to Violence, 'Its easy with Windows :P'

Kaige says, 'gremlins? I have two'

Violence says to Lorenzo, 'Well since I dont know what DCHP probably not. lol'

ArchAngel says, 'i got like 16 gremlins in my piece of junk machine'

LadyAce says to Violence, 'sometimes settings can go weird on you after the machine crashes, or your ISP will feed you weird junk'

Lorenzo says to Violence, 'DHCP can change your settings arbitrarily. lots of ISPs use it to assign your address information -- you might well be using it and not know'

Violence nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Violence says, 'Ah well I'll try and figure it out'

LadyAce smiles at Violence.

Adamar says, 'you probably are, since only commercial accounts get permanent ips now'

Kaige wishes Violence good luck!
