    I don't know if you have found out more about this in the intervening months, but since nobody has posted anything, I felt like I should post lest some be mislead by your experience to believe that the DCMA or Micro$haft had anything to do with it.

    You were infected with the Dangit I can't find the name of it anymore but i had to remove it from several systems at the sites I'm responsible for. It put that up there to stirr up controversy. It's a politcal virus. Anyway, search on google and you should find the name of the virus. :/ I'm supposed to be working, so I can't take the time to find it right now.

    Ah! Well that makes sense. Thanks for the pointer.

    Sometimes I am able to log in, sometimes I'm not (the box where you enter name & password doesn't appear). Whenever I log in, the game freezes as soon as I reach my desk. Occasionally I'm able to wait for clients; if so, the freeze invariably happens when the first client is standing there — and the next time I log on I get a message about having fainted. I've been having occasional difficulties logging in to the other FQ servers as well, which is usually solved by switching browser (IE/Mozilla/NS7), but this kind of freeze I haven't seen elsewhere, and it happens regardless of browser. Is it a Mac thing - I run OS 8 at work and OS X at home - perhaps?

    I tried to join the new Daisypark game this morning, but it crashed my IE on the loading page. Hmmm, Maybe Windows XP does stand for Xtra Problems after all. (Truthfully, in the three months that I've been running XP, this is the first time I've ever had any "odd" problems with any of the programs.) Anybody got a hint (besides reverting to an older Windows)? Should I try netscape (if it's available... Haven't used that since I stopped using Macs in the 9th grade.)?

    Yes, same here — and this was incidentally not one of the problems I encountered yesterday. (I was able to log in and play, finally, last night.) So it's not an XP thing... and hopefully it will pass.

    When the game works, it's great  

    [Edited to add: It crashes Mozilla, too, today.]

    Tonight, I'm moving Daisy off my DSL line and on to a T1.  Not only will this make the game more pleasant for y'all, but I suspect that the "magic byte" problem will disappear.  I'm hopeful that this will be the case.  I've been busy with non-fq related programming lately, but I'd like to get my hands wet with FQ scripting.  I suspect that Seth is either working on a new game or perhaps a new FQ update.  In any case, I wanted to thank you all for continuing to play daisypark even with its rather poor quality of service.  I hope that this "upgrade" will fix the problem.

    On a technical note, daisypark is a win98 SE Virtual Machine that runs on a Linux host running VMWare workstation.  VMWare is very cool software.  There's also a little VNC action thrown in to the mix for good measure. :-)

    [update:  The file transfer didn't happen last night due to some fat-fingering by me. I'll try to get daisy up tomorrow.  The file is too large to move while I need the bandwidth for work.]

    Daisypark is running on the new server. I hope this solves some of the problems we saw while the machine was running of my DSL line.

    From the Deathsville Tribune's Metro section:



    <blockquote>
    Area church begins Bingo Night

    &laquo; Deathsville (AP)  In a move of financial inspiration, Father Smyth of Deathsville&#39;s First Church of the Holy Cow has declared every night to be Bingo Night.  The move comes after years of dwindling contributions at the offering plate.  Father Smyth entreats locals of all faiths to come and "play bingo for Jesus."

    Those interested in picking up a few extra wood tags should make their way the Church.  But hurry.  Already Bingo Night has attracted a rough element.  Teams of elderly ladies have staked out permanent seats close to the bingo balls.

    "N-5&#33;  Come on, N-5, you dirty sonva-[explitive deleted]," exclaimed Ethel Peterson, a bingo regular at the church.  "Who do I have to [explicit sex act deleted] to get a B-1?" said another exasperated bingo player.

    "All of my flock are welcome at the bingo tables," said Father Smyth.  "As long as they have at least two wood tags." &raquo;
    </blockquote>
    </p>



    Thanks to Seth for answering my silly questions and rapidly fixing a bug (that doesn&#39;t affect this mod).   Also, thanks to Dan Wilma for leading the charge into FQ scripting.  While I did look at the Casino mod for inspiration, Bingo Night is my own twisted idea of a good time.  :-D



    The code for this will be release soon, I hope.  More details to follow.

    edith.careersearch.net.

    Daisypark is down until Monday, I think. A reboot went astray. I think I need to beef up the hardware. Bummer.

    Daisypark is back up.  It&#39;s a new machine now.  Much faster.  Added new items: body armor and brass knuckles.  Enjoy.

    Cool

    Blah. The one time I have a chance to get on DP is when it&#39;s down...

    Sorry about that.  There was a MAC address conflict.  Weird.  It&#39;s up and running again.
