I can't even begin to tell you the problems I have had at joining
FoRKBusters. I have probably tried 25 times during the past week to join
and the stats server is never working. The one time that I got close, I
entered in the Team# 1146 and hit enter and got

"Stats is down..."


I thought I got the correct RC5-64 client for Solaris but with a
discrepency like that, it looks like I did something wrong.
