Discussion

Did I miss an announcement for maintenance window? Can't connect and can't access the website either. --Mayhem 02:52, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

IPv6

There are several so called IPv6 brokers that can allow one to access the IPv6 network without having an IPv6 enabled internet connection. Some are free. Some require registration.

See the IPv6 page for information.

DSL Line Down

The BT circuit that feeds discworlds connection is currently out of service. The DNS entry for discworld.starturtle.net has been updated to point to the same address as disctemp.starturtle.net and IPv6 is unaffected as disctemp and v6 use the alternate internet connection.

discworld.atuin.net will not currently work and there may be some connection wierdness with the odd thing but all the main features will work as normal.

Given this is a BT line fault I have no idea when they plan to even deign to look at it - it has been reported obviously but those of you that know BT know that means diddly!

LAGGING? Read This

Some people have been experiencing severe latency on the discworld.starturtle.net - port 4242 address.

Try connecting via disctemp.starturtle.net port 4242 instead
