Hey all, sorry I haven't been in chat much at all lately. Starchat seems to have flagged my dialup ISP as a Tor exit server (seriously?) and blacklisted its entire range of IPs, so my connection has been being refused for almost two weeks now. I managed to get on directly from a shell account on my ISP a couple of times, but no more. I've emailed them twice but haven't heard anything back, and their contact form on their website is all kinds of broken, so I dunno.

Miss you all. Sucks, and it's really hard to write w/o y'all keeping me company, but I hope you're all getting lots of good words down. See ya when I can.

Did you try an online hostmask service like Mibbit?

http://www.mibbit.com/

I tried to connect with Mibbit just now.... Might be a network Z:line on Mibbit connects. Temporary?

Unfortunately, with dialup internet where I'm lucky to get a 28.8kbps connection, most workarounds are out of reach. Thanks for the suggestion, though. :(

No problem. For anyone else reading this, I am finally able to join Coyote server via Mibbit (Amistad and Laird are still not connecting).
