    I refuse to adopt the mistaken terminology of a person who blames a software operating system for the failure of a laptop harddrive made by someone completely different from the creator of the operating system, particularly since the software of the harddrive is not made by the makers of the general operating system either. Nor was the computer itself made by the writers of the OS. Nor does that Operating System hardware have anything whatsoever to do with the online gaming experience since the console and the network are of an origin quite unrelated to the criticised OS. I prefer to call something what it actually is.

    I posted that not in response to your joke, but because of the continuing stupidity of the name and the non-validity of the motivation for giving it has bothered me for a considerable time, hence the venting of my view. Even if there were an actual parallel similarity of ineffectiveness [I have never seen a parallel in this case], the name is still too indirect and irrelevant to be an accurate description or offer a possible clue to the cause of the problem.

    And now, to the fixing of the online problems. If they can actually be fixed. If this particular glitch nEver occurs offline, then either the program is not receiving data input because of connection cutouts or slowdowns, in which case the problem cannot be resolved unless your connection is made flawless, or the code that detects the pad crossover is too simple to allow for late detections, in which case, MAYbe the detection can be improved.

    Anybody has difficulty connecting to WipEout online in North America?

    All of a sudden, the game wont let me in. Its stuck on the "Connecting..." screen for an eternity. I tried logging off before starting the game and log myself within the game, but no, its useless. It happened to me for the first time yesterday evening and before now i never had any trouble logging in. Im not the guy who knows much about hardware and internet stuff, but i read the first post here and my PS3 is NAT2.

    I asked DividedXZero to log on and he has the same problem as me (is in the US). Anybody knows if SL servers are having trouble with NA or something?

    As far as I'm aware the servers have been down (or simply not working) yesterday and today, Kyonshi. I hope it's maintenence rather than them going ka-put like the leaderboards.

    I hope they're back up before tomorrow, otherwise they'll be no WipEout this weekend... The world cup will suffer a bit too if they don't come back online soon.

    I see Amorbis. But you're from England and can't play? I ask because i saw my buddy W5LX from France playing yesterday night when i happened to me for the first time... How is that supposed to work? Locations far from Europe suffer from this situation first?

    I don't know how it works, but I do know that I can't currently play. I see why location would affect it, but I guess it could. No one in my friends list that is European has been online on WipEout either today or yesterday, probably because it seems to be broken in Europe too .

    I take it that you didn't read the thread where Paul Tweedle said the servers are being taken offline for fixes? No times were given for specific outages and returns to service, so there's no predicting when you can or cannot get on.
