just got home and it happened again. that's 4 times in 4 days. had about 40 in the que this morning and I was qued on 4 I think. que was empty when I got home. disconnecting and trying to reconnect does not work, yellow light forever. shutting winmx down completely and restarting connected right up. this almost feels like a denial of service attack, where the connection to the network itself is under attack. the search feature works right now, not a lot with only 10 people qued up, but specific to the search and not the data dump we've been seeing.
hope this adds something, and sorry about the all caps earlier
