As many of you know yesterday there was a forum outage. As This also affected the address http://space.zerosumgames.net/
Those of you who complained that the game was unreachable spoke too soon. The address above still worked just fine. This is one of the reasons for the new address. Servers fail. The internet is a fragile life form.
You should also record the IP address of the game server. It is currently 220.127.116.11 and putting it into your browser will bring up the server if it is reachable. (And a router midway there hasn't borked up like it did two months ago)
Make sure you
can always get to the space server so you aren't making excuses to your allies later. We all know how important continuous connectivity is for this game. It's not hard work but please stay informed.
