Tienbau, Zackman, Kyp, et al. are the awesome ones. I just pop in every now and then and break things. :P You are correct that crashes have been happening more often than in the past, but this is not completely a bad thing. The reason it's happening is that we continue to have more and more players online at once. As we've pushed toward 400 simultaneous users, and then on to 500, the increased load on the server has caused less-than-perfect or older sections of the code to break under the new found stress. Each time the server crashes, Zackman, and recently Tienbau again, are doing their best to fix the problem so it doesn't happen again, which is why the server doesn't always come back immediately. Zackman has been doing a terrific job of keeping the server going and minimizing downtime. These are growing pains and, while they hurt a bit now, they'll make us bigger and stronger in the end.
