I think this is strange...
I run a mIRC based bot and yesterday it had a connection timed out by 7 AM and I on ly noticed it 2 hours latter.
I have another mIRC bot on the same machine that also had ping timeout.
However, the first bot didn't show "disconnected" on his mirc, so he showed me everything as if he was connected... but obviously he didn't receive the messages ... he showed the last message at 7 am and then didn't appear anymore messages.
The other bot 'admitted' that he had a ping timeout and so reconnected himself, but the other, because he thought he was still connected, didn't reconnect to the network, and so it was down for 2 hours
Can anyone help me with this? what do you think I should do?
