At least for today Razor is hanging for an amount of time while it tries to check for updates.. this update check, and future updates which could potentially break Razor until another update is made (like we've seen in the recent past), can be skipped by modifying your computer's registry key where Razor looks for the last time it checked for updates.
To make this change you can easily download the attached registry file and double click on it, or right click on it (the downloaded file) and select Merge, saying Yes to add to registry to make the change, or do it manually by following these basic instructions, assuming you are familiar with using the registry editor.
Open the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Razor
Change the value of UpdateCheck from whatever it currently is to "020391E8A569A689" without the quotation marks.
This effectively sets the next time Razor will check for updates to 50 years in the future. Any important Razor updates that we actually should download will most likely be announced, but currently Razor updates do nothing that effect us on UOSA.ftp://download.uosecondage.com/Tools/NoRazorUpdates.reg
NOTE: If you use PeerBlock/PeerGuardian, or any other IP filtering software using widely available IP lists, this download will be blocked on port 21 by those lists. You'll have to temporarily disable the software or allow the connection.
The preferred verion of Razor for the 18.104.22.168 client on UOSA is available here: ftp://download.uosecondage.com/Razor_Latest.exe
