Just now, 4:21AM EST, Monday May 26th, 2008, there was a small problem with the IMC servers, and both Server01 and Server02 went down, They are back up now, if there are any problems connecting, You can drop me a personal note, here or you can send me an email with your problem, and your Mud's IMC LocalName and I'll help as I can.
I'm actually experiencing problems unrelated to the outage. My game seems to get stuck in either AUTH_1 or AUTH_2, never making it fully to connected but making it someplace past disconnected. Most commands tell me I need to connect first, disconnect tells me I'm already disconnected, and connect tells me I'm already connected.
This is GW based (Merc derived), localname Vortex if either of the servers showed connection attempts.
And for anyone who might be confused as to why Kayle is dealing with downed servers, it's because I've turned control of Server02 over to him. I am no longer in charge of any of the IMC2 servers, though obviously I can still help with the really oddball problems that may come up.
Yeah, oops. I forgot about that. Another note, that form is not necessary to use if you're using a modern IMC2 client. It's only intended to be used by older clients running versions 0.10 through 3.2 and should not be used on any client supporting proper autoconnect. The IMC2 client downloads here support proper autoconnect.
