No update yet. I'm working on trying to stablise the socket error I've found which might be caused by line drops. It usually only manifests itself when the game shuts down and is clearing all the sockets up. It might be a good idea just to not bother closing them!
I'm currently re-writing the error handler, so that it just closes, writes an error log and then reboots the system. This should stop fatal errors and the machine not rebooting.
The most recent crash however, was caused by the secondary hard disk failing. Superbackup tried to access the drive and got a hard disk error which halts the server until someone clicks ok on the console. Sigh. I'll get a new drive and put it into the server asap.
Looks like there's still a problem. I just attempted to log in and the server died. Looks like the test server will be off until after christmas.

Hmm. I think I've fixed the 'invisible user' and 'already logged in' bugs. Only testing will tell if I'm right! Have a look at the fixes for the stuff!
