You are not alone. This is a me-too post! Exactly the same problem. Also, it seems that and websites are down. I assume Altme has to do a request to to get the IP address of the world. Thereafter (unless the IP address is dynamic), a session should work without further reference to This (assuming my analysis is right) introduces a single point of failure, with a couple of (immediately off the top of my head) approaches to alleviating it: -- Altme could have mirror servers, and look the world-name up on those -- If (and mirrors) aren't available, the start up could try the last-used IP address. Altme is so useful, that it is really annoying when it doesn't work. I shouldn't really complain though: it's free (at least the way I use it) so I'm certainly getting value for money, Sunanda.<
