Yep, the various servers lost touch with each other this afternoon, and you could only see the users on the same server as you. Our little Oregon jaunt was interrupted, until most of us figured out that we could meet up again on mpserver05. The mpmap was out of contact at the same time, presumably for the same reason.

This used to happen much more often than it has recently, and system reliability has become increasingly impressive over the past couple of years. Remember, the whole thing exists on free servers run by volunteers who do it because they want you to enjoy yourself. Thanks to a handful of dedicated hobbyists, we get to play pilot with friends from all over the planet. How cool is that?!

Yeah, right! Wrench didn't complain, but sometimes users do complain about FG as if they had paid a thousand bucks for it... That's like someone hands you 1000$ in the streets of Paris, and you complain because you cannot pay with it in Europe. :D



P.S. I fly a lot in Siberia, there the number of MP's doesn't really matter. :P
