Um... yeah, there could be a problem with me getting onto MxO when I'm at uni. I tried blocking the necessary ports inbound on my home router yesterday and didn't run into any problems, but it's come to my attention that the university firewall blocks all outbound ports by default as well! I don't know much about networking, but that seems ridiculous.

I'll have a few days before term starts to try and get things working. It may be possible for me to employ SSH tunneling (what little I know of that) to get into the Matrix, but that would leave me with horrible latency, so I won't be able to do much.

Rest assured, though, that if it turns out that the ports are blocked and I can't get into MxO, I shall argue my case to the powers that be till I'm blue in the face. Ten weeks without MxO? You must be joking...

(I'm going to uni on Thursday, so Wednesday may be my last day for some time...)

It's the timing of it all... I had a number of RP things planned, not to mention the Live Event coming up.

Rocky, stick with it, dude. Razz

I very much doubt that wireless is even available in Durham. Even if it is, it'd cost a fortune.

That happens at your lvl Rocky, it happened to me at around lvl 45ish and I didnt play for longer than 5 minutes a day.

Then one day it ticked and I admired the game again and started playing properly and lvld 5 times in one day, I think it was.. Smile

Just stick with it

LOL, that sounds like some kind of MxO Midlife Crisis.

And that like the last hope for a broken relationship...

MxO is so much like Life. xD

Be grateful at least you'll see it... I might have to work all weekend. At the very least I'm going to be in the office Sunday afternoon (probably when they finalise the event).
