Yesterday, Alter Aeon upgraded servers and changed server location. The new server is much faster and people are reporting a lot less lag than with the old one. If you're having problems connecting, you may need to reboot your machine to clear the DNS cache. If necessary, you can direct connect using the IP address:
22.214.171.124, port 3000 (alteraeon.com)
In other news, we have an upcoming system event for Summer Solstice in a little over three weeks. The event is slated to be run by Shadowfax, and should cover a couple of days and be quite interesting. Don't miss it!
