    I can relate...
    It was quite a game was it not?

    $sound = new-Object System.Media.SoundPlayer;
    $webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
    $webClient.DownloadFile("http://www.wavsource.com/snds_2017-07-30_6786517629734627/movies/star_wars/chewy.wav", "$pwd\upsound.wav")
    $sound.SoundLocation="$pwd\upsound.wav";
    
    while ($true) {
      $url = "https://www.swgemu.com/status/basilisk.xml"
      $contents = $webclient.DownloadString($url)
      $down = Select-String -Pattern "down" -InputObject $contents
      $up = Select-String -Pattern "up" -InputObject $contents
      $locked = Select-String -Pattern "lock" -InputObject $contents
    
      if ($up.length -gt 0) {
        Write-Host("The server is UP!")
        $sound.Play();
      }
      if ($down.length -gt 0) {
        Write-Host("The server is still down.")
      }
      if ($locked.length -gt 0) {
        Write-Host("The server is LOCKED, interesting...")
      }
      Start-Sleep -s 30
    }
    Downloads a chewy wav file, then checks every 30 seconds to see if it's up, down, or locked. If it's up it'll play the chewy sound (every 30 seconds). If you hit ctrl+c it'll end it.

    To use this just copy (ctrl+c) the code and open notepad. Paste it into notepad, then save that as "CheckSwg.ps1" (without the quotes) - you should save it to your documents or something. Can't just upload it somewhere for download, Windows will understandably complain if you download a powershell script and try to run it. Obviously run at your own risk, but you can clearly read what it's doing there.

    Then browse to wherever you saved it (preferably your Documents) and right click it, and click "Run With Powershell" and a window will open and start checking every 30 seconds.

    Edit: fixed a bug

    Like the first hit of a powerful drug. You'll spend your life chasing it.

    Because in the real world I'd give it a few months before current stock runs out, and chances are pretty decent that the amount of people that chose their crafters as that ONE toon will not be enough to get it back up.
    This all the way.

    I never really understood the animosity people had for multiple toons. They make it seem like its some conspiracy in which producers gain more benefits and the common consumer is left cheated. More AFK toons lead to more supply, and thus more competition (ultimately leading to lower prices and more content). It's a win-win!

    You want to get someone banned?

    P.S. No, none of them are even close to that number.
