I couldn't make this up if I tried. Yesterday evening, about 5min. into my 'play for fun' event on the server (attempting to establish a player base), my connection went kaput. I figured it was the usual; either the cable box was acting up again, or one of the router cables was loose. After doing the usual fixes for the box, I went so far as to reinstall my wireless network, to no avail. So on a hunch, I went outside to examine the small portion of landline that was outside the house. We had done some re-wiring a few months ago, and some of the cables had to be routed through the garage. Amongst these was a power line. Lo and behold, there is the cable, still attached to the wall/ceiling of the garage, but clearly not in one piece. And on the floor beneath it lay a very dead squirrel The damn thing had chewed on the power cable that supplys the outlets for my various internet-based equipment. Worse than my loss of internet was the fact that the late mr. squirrel had turned himself into a crispy critter. So here I sit the following morning, in the internet cafe of the Sears auto-department, waiting to replace my 2 front tires that developed a bubble b/c of all the potholes around here. My sincere apologies to the peeps who showed up for the event last night. I really appreciate your support of my efforts to establish a playerbase for our servers. I have no idea how long this will take to fix. I will be sending a pm w/ some instructions to the moderators shortly. For everyone else, if you would like to play on any of our servers for the next few nights, in loving memory of my internet and/or the squirrel, you would have my thanks.
