The servers probably all got drunk at the new years party, and fainted.

Maybe your ISP was celebrating New Years, and spilled drinks on the fancy equipment that keeps you connected. Cuz thats what it sounds like, ISP problem.

BZFlag is closed on New Years Day. It will re-open tommorow for normal business.
