Is it it me or is the game down?

We finally put one too many wooden cups in the Lodge.

Just curious, when the game supercrashes and stays down for more than a second, if you caused it, do you still get the

OMG! SOMETHING IN "<COMMAND YOU ENTERED>" BLEW UP THE GAME. STOP IT.

Or do those only show up on minor crashes? I always get worried when I'm in the middle of something and the game goes boom.

If you don't get the message, the game threw an unhandled exception and blew up. It can happen in major and minor crashes. It just depends on what error it was. Generally, major crashes are caused by corrupted data or some coder being naughty before they properly tested their changes. Corrupted data happens easily in DIKU because of how haphazardly coded it is.

Have I told you that I love you yet, Holmes? If not, consider this my heartfelt admission of affection.

--- ATTENTION ---
Something in the last command you entered, 'quit', has crashed the MUD.
Although it may have been due to a random memory corruption, please try to use
this command as sparingly as possible after the recovery, just in case. A core
dump has been generated to assist debugging, and a coder will look into this
issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

I think the oddest one I've got was a message saying I crashed it by using 'scan'.

Also, game is down right?

Invariably it crashes while my character is doing semi-dangerous things. Possible bug? :D

That's it, I'm dishing out the whippings.

Everyone get in line... myself included.
I have two forces by my side
One's the truth and one's a lie
Which one's which I cannot tell
This enigma is my hell

Don't you just hate it when there's a typo in the thread title?

Did the game die or am I the broken one here?
