What's up with TMC?

Or rather - is it down?

Can anyone else connect to them? I've been unable to for the last 15 hours or so.
Is it just my server?

I think it's between you and TMC, working for me, and

It's been down all day for me as well - unavailable from work, from home, or from my android.

Re: What's up with TMC?

Maybe a European connection issue then. This should be an interesting test of how much those Euros really matter to the viability of mudding.

Re: What's up with TMC?

I was getting an error message the day before about the TMC server having too many open processes.

TMC could be under a DDOS attack, though it's probably something else.

Re: What's up with TMC?

Down for me as well. I'm curious as to the actual physical location - I seem to recall it being in the southeast, and it may be affected by all these power outages we've been having.

/is fine, alive, and has power again, btw.

Re: What's up with TMC?

Wolfpaw is up, I thought TMC was hosted there?

Re: What's up with TMC?

TMC is not down for everyone. Anyone try through a proxy or shell?

Re: What's up with TMC?

As far as I know Wolfpaw is still doing Host for Perks with TMC.

I looked up the IP address and that still works, so it must be a dns problem of sorts. I've heard of dns servers dropping domains in the case of DDOS attacks, so that theory still goes.

Re: What's up with TMC?

Who on earth would ddos Mudconnect?
I know there are a lot of jerks out there, but honestly, it doesn't seem a likely scenario. The activity is low, and there hasn't even been any flamewars on their board lately.

It must be something else. I hope the reason isn't that Iccy tired of running it after all these years.
I'll try e-mailing him.

Re: What's up with TMC?

Yup, some server problem apparently.
TMC was up, but the nameserver wasn't running, according to Iccy.

Funny how disturbed one gets when a habit is broken...
