<DIV><FONT face=Verdana>During this downtime I put together a quick script that looks to see if the server is up, and if it is plays a sound.  It's kind of like a server up alarm clock.  You must spell your server name correctly, and it's case sensitive (ie Befallen not befallen or bfalen)</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face=Verdana></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT face=Verdana><A href="http://www.pathset.net/eq2mon" target=_blank>www.pathset.net/eq2mon </A></FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face=Verdana></FONT> </DIV> <DIV align=center><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color=#009900 size=3><FONT size=2> <DIV align=center><IMG src="http://www.pathset.net/eq2mon/images/thsig.jpg"></DIV> <DIV align=center><FONT color=#d5c7be size=3>You'll not find a bow as true! </FONT></DIV> <DIV align=center><FONT color=#d5c7be size=2>/tell truehawk.befallen I need a Truehawk bow!</FONT></DIV></FONT></FONT></DIV> <P><SPAN class=time_text></SPAN> </P><p>Message Edited by Jitai on <span class=date_text>12-19-2004</span> <span class=time_text>09:03 AM</span>

Script is broken. Made a beep noise and took me to a web site showing my server is DOWN. Would be pretty cool if it worked tho. Maybe you can get a job coding patches for Sony <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /><p>Message Edited by Spunk Monkey on <span class=date_text>12-18-2004</span> <span class=time_text>01:09 AM</span>Edit: Works now, you rock!<p>Message Edited by Spunk Monkey on <span class=date_text>12-18-2004</span> <span class=time_text>01:11 AM</span>

<DIV> <DIV>Sometimes the network may hickup on the SOE side and give you a false serverup indication.  If you set your refresh to 30 or 60 seconds it's not bad.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> <DIV align=center><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color=#009900 size=3><FONT size=2> <DIV align=center><IMG src="http://www.pathset.net/eq2mon/images/thsig.jpg"></DIV> <DIV align=center><FONT color=#d5c7be size=3>You'll not find a bow as true! </FONT></DIV> <DIV align=center><FONT color=#d5c7be size=2>/tell truehawk.befallen I need a Truehawk bow!</FONT></DIV></FONT></FONT></DIV></DIV></DIV><p>Message Edited by Jitai on <span class=date_text>12-19-2004</span> <span class=time_text>09:01 AM</span>

<DIV>This absolutely rocks.  Twenty-three stars for this post.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>SOE, any chance of incorporating something like this into your Server Status page?  In its current manually-updated state it's honestly not that useful, but a tool like this would change that in a hurry.</DIV>

<DIV>Looks like a great script, but I put in Guk (tho I know it's up cuz I'm on it) and it said Guk was down. Just an FYI. Of course, it's 4am, so maybe something else is going on.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Cool idea though. Certainly better than the 36 hour lag on the official status pages. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>  I would like to agree with one point for sure. For all the comlaining I hear you would think this was some crappy game. I think the frantic search for ANY info by so many people....even the complainers.....shows how truely wonderful this game is. I for one think this is the best gaming experience I have ever experienced. It sure beats pong!</DIV> <DIV>  I was taking my second flight on the griffins a few weeks ago and /shout 'ed ...This game is so much fun!  I was dismayed by all the negative OutOfCharacter responses. The person that empties the wastebasket at the offices where they make this game should be proud to be a part of it. Thanks to everyone involved!</DIV> <DIV>  I may be old, but I know a good thing when I see one.</DIV>
