Seems my home modem or router (whatever manages TV, phone, and internet for AT&T) is out and I won't get a replacement for one or two days.

im already gettin the shakes


come home from work and the modem (for the time being) seems to be working fine. For now. Already committed to an RMA though. Make up your mind and die, hardware!

My stomach has been hurting for two days. Fuck you Wendy's.
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I'm begging anyone who is good at networking to help me fix my problem so I can MUD again. I've got two weeks off work and want to spend it killing some of my best friends (you guys).

Assuming Windows o/s

1) Run ipconfig.  Do you have an ip address and default gateway?
2) Ping default gateway.  Does it ping?
3) Try ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew.  If that does not solve your issue, your problem is likely in your home router or whatever device acts as your default gateway.
4) Find out what your public IP address is.  Can you ping that? If not, you may have a NAT translation issue.
5) Ping 8.8.8.8.  If not, the problem is likely something to do with your ISP not delivering a public ip address to your home router/default gateway device.  In this case, you can try to login to your home router/default gateway device and release/renew your public interface (typically labeled as WAN).
6) Ping 206.72.201.199 (ginka.armageddon.org's ip address).  Does it ping? If so, you have the ability to pass ICMP packets to ArmageddonMUD's server.  If not, you may be being blocked by an access-list or firewall.
7) Try to telnet to 206.72.201.199.  If it works, than you're good to go.  Your problem is likely a DNS resolution error.

Cheers, hope that helps.

I told you to hire somebody like 3 times. You get internet, but the game connection on a high port is unstable. The things that cause that situation require more than "help me plz" to diagnose.

I don't think I've ever heard of that being a root cause of a transport layer networking issue before, but hey, I may be wrong.  All things can be possible with the right variation of computers and networking gear.

I doubt it's the game itself, probably firewalled ports. I've said about a hundred times it's VLAN, dodgy router or firewall conflicts (software or router) or some combination thereof.

Misogyny. It's not just got the 20th century anymore.
I'm taking an indeterminate break from Armageddon for the foreseeable future and thereby am not available for mudsex.

My birthday is Sunday. I have to work tomorrow, so I get only a one-day weekend. (THANKS GRAPE HARVEST.) I have obligations on Sunday.

My birthday is going to suck again this year (last year I actually had to work on my birthday, on a Saturday). I just suggested to Mr. Gimf that I'd like to pretend that Sunday is not my birthday, and just choose to have it some other time if I want, or not at all. (Don't think the kids will really go for this, though. They are still operating under the illusion that birthdays are always fun.)
I'm gonna go all Gimfalisette on you guys and lay down some numbers.

I can't remember a birthday that was all that great, can remember a few that were awful. My birthdays have generally been meh ever since I was a little kid. So I sort of ignore them, and treat the day like any other day.

You know what, fuck it...I will just have my birthday tomorrow night instead. That means I need to start on making the cake and the ice cream tonight. That's not even a complaint; I enjoy making those things. I WILL HAVE A BIRTHDAY, DAMNIT. Harvest can suck it.

Internet has basically been useless the past 2 days for anything other than Armageddon or browsing.
