  • In laymans terms ping is an indication of how good a connection you have with someone.

    <100 good

    100 - 200 acceptable

    300 - 500 poor

    >500 very poor

    When you enter a lobby room that displays pings, remember they are relative to you.

    Fluctuating ping is usually an indication of some sort of disruption in the connection. Mild fluctuation usually isn't a problem, expecially if the max is <150.

      • Ping = the amount of time in milliseconds it takes a computer to receive and send back a tiny amount of information to you. Australians and such will always have poor ping relative to a north american (and the reverse) due to the literal distance the signal must travel, and the number of servers in between.

            • So folks. I am going away starting tomorrow for almost 3 weeks. My niece is babysitting the house and the cats, but I don't think she will be able to restart the pitboss again.

              Andydog is playing my turns for me, but if the game crashes, we/you will be SOL. Guess we just keep our fingers crossed. It has been fairly stable as of late.

                  • Clearly you need to educate your niece properly in the importance of Civ

                      • The niece is more interested in her boyfriend and her waistline - but not necessarily in that order.

                        And I left pretty clear intsructions not to turn the PC off....

                        Ah well. Looking to restart it now.

                        • Game is back up. Thanks for your patience folks. But Mount Everest was worth it.

                          22 hours left on the turn timer. Had to reload from pinchak's recovery save - so he has to replay. Also, Ephack, snoop, and Rhoth left to play.

                          Witt, Toxo (me) (played by Andydog), and provi have already played.

                          Sending confirmation pm's and emails as well.

                          • As mentioned in the email I believe Pinchak is moving so it would kind of suck for him to come back and have missed a few turns because he didn't know it was back up. I suggest we wait until he comes back.

                            • If folks are ok with that - I will freeze the game until pin is back. Will start from the same save at that point in time.
