Have a look at all the warnings and sticky posts - http://forums.theplanet.com/viewforum.p ... b0df082d21

I just happened to watch a major lag spike in progress (1000+ ping) and ran a quick traceroute. The main Level3 router in Dallas that most if not all of the traffic that we all have to go thru to get to the server was the culprit. I then checked theplanet.com forums to see if anyone had mentioned it, and sure enough there it all is.

Eventually, everything should be back to normal. In the meantime, please grin and bear it the best ya can.

Thanks for the info K2.

I knew something strange was up because Puppy had better pings then I did. And last I checked, he lived a "little bit" farther away from the server then I did hehe.

Hmmm grin and bear it, where else have I heard that before? OH THATS RIGHT!

AT WORK! When they told me that my pay raise had been delayed until they were fucking ready to give it to me.
