I had no trouble logging in to MOUL just now which seems to be about 30 minutes after your post.

Or Gehn, either.

Well in due course I was able to log in. Still I find it peculiar that I was m not able to get into either TOC or Gehn with the message that they were already open. Thx

The fact that you were having problems getting into all three of those (completely unconnected) shards suggests that the problem was rather broader than "Uru" and you likely had some general internet connection problem. The "yes, but I can get into other sites OK" doesn't really hold as Uru's networking is less forgiving than most so it can be "broken" by relatively minor increases in things like packet loss that wouldn't bother most other things you'd do on the internet.

The shard's clients may be connected by a semaphore name or mutex name. If one shard client hangs it may keep the name in use and cause an error in the others on startup.

The only thing of that nature is that a hung client can sometimes leave an unterminated uruexplorer.exe process running which causes subsequent attempts to launch Uru to fail. But that's a pretty well known problem and most people who visit here regularly will have seen advice to check for that many times.
