    Well, that was a big waste of time. An hour of screwing around for 5 minutes of gaming.

    We spent an hour trying to get a game that wouldn't lag, and then when we finally got into the game, cow and haite killed comtrax right away, and then the game ended, without even giving me a chance to fight.

    my net connection has been hosed the last 4 days. i think it's from the windows worm that's spreading around the internet... it's an effective DoS attack on several internet hubs. it seems like everyone is being effected. when my DSL is normal, i still can't find a decent warcraft 3 server.

    It was only existing on the net on Friday. As of early Saturday, it had been eradicated. At its peak, it used up 34% of the entire internet's bandwidth, insane. I didn't feel it much at my end; my ISP uses Sun Solaris boxes for routing and FreeBSD boxes for the direct DHCP servers to the cable network. A few sites and gaming servers were down for me, that was all. Most of the big backbone providers like UUNet didn't feel it, they do all their networking on *nix mainframes. Sapphire seems to have been written by the Chinese "Honker" group, there are references to them in the code.

    Uh, anyway, my dissertations on security aside, I think the realms are jacked. Your situation adds to the evidence.

    Anything that isn't Windows, aside from the really obscure little OS's like OS/2, is *nix :nod:.

    The latency would be because of smaller networks that had contracted broadband with the backbone providers. The networks of the providers themselves were fine, which is what I meant.
