When trying to load the game, this error shows up:
ERROR: Cannot send message to address: Anacreon.command.

It started a couple hours ago? Maybe a few hours, not sure on timing at this point.

I am seeing this error as well (from mobile, travelling and can't verify from a normal connection)

I have used Firefox of different versions on both Win7 and Linux. I do not think it is a browser issue but a back end server issue.
This is what the server actually returns when trying to call getGameInfo:
["AEON2011:hexeError:v1", (a bunch of junk that I don't know if it is user specific so I removed for security), "Error.unableToComply", "Cannot send message to address: Anacreon.command."]

I posted a Ministry ticket. This may have to do with the Rackspace issue that took the forums down a couple days ago.

So... what is Rackspace? Is that like the Anacreon version of Skynet where the old fallen empire locks us from the game because if it can't have an empire no one can??? Skynet just won Anacreon.....???? :cry:

 Rackspace means the rack holding the actual machine the game runs on. Basically, he means a hardware issue.

I apologize. This looks like a bug on the server. I've restarted the server, and it looks OK now, but I need to figure out the root cause.

Thanks George! Just a gentle reminder, it probably would be better if the various logins redirected to https by default so that passwords aren't being sent in plaintext.

Rackspace is a company that has servers people can rent the use of. Most people do not want to deal with trying to research parts to build a server, companies to buy a pre-built server from, or the hassle of repairing/replacing parts when they die. Managed server places like Rackspace allow people to focus on what they want to do with the servers, instead of the servers themselves... usually.
