    I just wanted to let people know that when WASTE crashes, the connection doesn't close for everyone so it stays in their connection list. And then when the person that crashed comes back online, it opens a new connection without removing the old one, so if someone crashes a lot, everyone that's connected to them gets a ton of connections from the same IP.

    http://rz.ath.cx:8080/waste.jpg to see what I mean.

    That's one of two people that keep reconnecting, I'm waiting for a reply from the one in the screenshot to see what's going on at his end, but another one has reported that his OS crashes constantly.

      Well I got a reply from the guy in the screenshot, he's apparently not done anything to have caused this.
      His settings are all normal, all he did was change the port.

      He mentioned that he's getting new connections from someone else as well, but I'm connected to the same person and not getting any from them..

      Anyone know of a way to actually find out what's causing this?
