Well, I'm not bothering anyone at gg until after the date, and even then only if gg gets the master/dns.

maybe hosted on the same server, but that could easily be transfered.

is this an appropriate time to shout:

Damn you TW trolls!! You gave me a heart-attack for no good and now apparent reason"

I have yet to hear of the resolution to the issue. Masters are still mastering for T1 and T2 though....

Not so. I emailed Mark Frohnmayer myself, and posted his reply here.
My guess is there's still goings on between gg and vu. Hence the masters are still mastering.

Well we are ready whatever happens. If GG has dropped the ball it doesn't matter,
it would have been nice, but it doesn't matter. GG is probably quite distracted with
their Diller deal anyway.

Vivendi may have had second thoughts about letting go of it based on the queries
that came in.

So its in limbo, however, the master could die at any time. It has died before and the
next time might be the last.

We've got good fallbacks so screw both of them.

Just to give some closure to those who were against my master server.

My master server, kigen.ath.cx:28000, is now hosted on a dedicated server (Dell PowerEdge 2450) with a static IP (204.145.237.75).

Complements of Cyberstreet. (An ISP in Florida.)

There were people against it because I, at first, hosted it from my house on a 500mhz laptop on a DSL connection that had a dynamic IP.

Which the dynamic IP would mess up heartbeats since a TRIBES server does not resolve the domain name except for the first heartbeat. My master server update script fixed the issue by forcing a domain name resolution ever so often.

oh, i was wondering what that fix "fixed", since the first time i pointed my tribes at your master, it worked quite well. i don't think I've used your master since then though.

well, I'm still happy I had an excuse to delve into the TRIBES netcode for a little bit. I now have Java bit-level I/O libraries that I couldn't find anywhere else and now work perfectly. So whatever. :)

I am too, your master I'm hosting is still up.
