One more update, then I'll stop spamming about this:

I did a restart on my server (ApocTestbed1) around midnight eastern,  
and I was able to join it again 7 hours later when I woke up (score  
was 44-8 at the time, so it had been running), so all looks good, or  
as good as can be expected! (unless I join it again...  )
