after connection problems

Jun 18, 2009
My ISP is currently giving me fits, and the connection problems I am experiencing seems to be due to them, But I was wondering about a couple of things that result. Sometimes after losing connection while on ship, when I get back on, my health is 1, my companions dead, and my ship is wandering around aimlessly. A few minutes ago after it reconnected on the 3rd try, there was 2 of me on deck with my companions. Only one of me could attack, but the "other me" was clearly visable.

If I get disconnected, shouldn't activity stop? And why a second me? Just wondering and decided to ask
