Oh Alfandria, Alfandria, wherefore art thou Alfandria. The muck has been down for while, has it moved addresses again or did someone just decide to fold up and close the Alfandria server?

From what I can tell, the actual server's still there. The MUCK's just not running at present.

It's happened before - presumably someone's forgotten to restart the MUCK after rebooting the server or something.

It'd be a pity if it's finally given up the ghost altogether, though. After six years of connecting to it more or less daily, it'd be a bit of a loss.

AFD seems long gone, figured the muck would follow. Lot of memories there, even if I don't hang out there any more. I'll pour some booze on the ground for it next time I have some at hand.

Oh no, not the ground. Give it to your tongue.. and toss around the memories. :)

I cant follow the newsgroup very well. Too many uncleaned up posts.

Uncleaned-up posts? You mean lots of quote text?

Particularly the posts that are the 27'th or so reply that have 27 >'s before the text so it ends up wrapping strangely.

Lots of quote text.
I understand your reasoning, but I don't think anyone is that bad. Sure Iceshark and LFS went at it this month and had really long posts, but I know that LFS regulates the amount of quoted material very stringently.
