The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
It just tries to login for about a minute, then says "Can't connnect to minecraft.net" which means I can't get 1.1.0 to play. Also it won't load the update news, saying "Failed to update news java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect" which doesn't help at all. It's been doing this for about a week now. Any suggestions?
EDIT:though I did manage to upgrade to 1.1.0 via playing on the website.
