    There's a dns problem - you can temporarily give your pc/internet a fixed address by adding a line to your windows 'hosts' file, but you must remember to change it back later in case the server ever moves again.
    Here's a copy/paste of the work around posted in UHall:
    and the post from the thread in that link:
    I've lined through the wrong address. Follow the instructions in pbtong's post but use the address in Tardis's post.

    should have. The hosts file shouldn't have a file extension (no .txt) and the added line shouldn't have a # in front like the rest of the lines in that file.

    It's not affecting everyone.
    I believe you need admin access to save the file - or possibly to save the new version to 'my documents' and then move it into the proper folder.

    The "host" file is Write Protected in Windows XP. Taking that off allows you to insert the suggested line, but it's not alas working for me; the downtime has happened since 7:50 for me as I was swapping characters ready for an event... but now I can't get back in alas.
