I was going to try it just out of curiosity (not a gamer) but it got stuck on Connecting to server..
Oh well.

No luck, even disabled the firewall just in case.
Possibly everyone is following your suggestion and jamming the connection.
Never mind, not essential.
I am for whatever Mozilla brings out ( Firefox being the first step towards freedom)
this will be no exception.

try logging on the first time with a short name .. at first I used Write_Failure as a name, and it did what you mentioned .. I then changed to EmGee and it worked .. THEN I was able to use Write_Failure.

It was my proxy server getting in the way. Once bypassed it worked first time round (same player as before)
Bit jerky sometimes, but that cold be my wireless connection.
It shows that it is a viable option to flash.

If you try to look through Windows, you can see what the person is doing.
