It's flattering that you give us so much credit. :)

I can say pretty definitively now that we're not using any of the old
site infrastructure that if the problem was with the network on our end,
then we're quite unlucky to have the same problem with the old and the
new network. So, I'm inclined to rule that out.

It's still possible that our game server software itself is the culprit.
Hopefully in a few months we'll have the new Jabber-based game server
ready for testing---we'd learn something about the old game server if
that works for you without this problem.
