1) look for infinite loops in your code.  is it crashing on a command you type.
2) did you decrease the time from 3 minutes?  This is another reason for keeping
this number this big.  check the syslog for LARGE time changes.  See if anything
else is logged.

the best chance is you have an infinite loop.

Hullo all


Another problem, without warning the currently running mud seem to have
found a new way of annoying me. All of a sudden (Since it's a couple of
months since last update) the code decides to go :
SYSERR: CHECKPOINT Shutdown: Tics not updated.

Whut the???  And why?? and how? I could understand it if it had done
this once, then it might be the system timer or somthing like that.

Seems like the problem occurred after we installed a NTP-Client so that
we could synch with a server somewhere, but the cron is set to run it
every hour, and the reboot I'm looking at now has 17:39, so that does
not make any sense.. Any ideas?
