why don't we live as long and look what FL is until then. probably the day ipv4 is being shut down we have managed already to run FL with ipv6, who knows.

IPv4 is to run out within the next three months to three years, depending on who you ask and when...

HOWEVER, that doesn't mean all IPv4 addresses will suddenly vanish to be replaced by IPv6 addresses overnight. We have nothing to worry about.

if we want to keep freelancer alive not within the coming five years only but lets say another seven years or another dozen, we should one day start investigating how to make it run with IPv6. many players who didn't know FL love starting playing it as i experienced on "recruiting" new FLers - still a problem is that many people who play games (and i really mean they do play games, many games, much time) have only a little idea of computers. the game has potential to catch new players as long as we can make their way easy.

That's normal and there's nothing you can do about it. In 2004 the game had been released for barely a year; it was in its peak. It's absolutely normal.

i'll at least keep introducing the game to new players and if you give up trying to excuse it with "the game is old" i already know what to think about you, gentlemen.

<leans over and hands Gisteron one of his tasty carrots>

I'll be staying with XP and IPv4, and my old laptop, no matter what new-fangled widgetry comes along!

Windows 8 will soon be here.
