Hey all, sorry about the server downtime. The room the server's in is being remodeled, and I haven't had the time to sneakily set it up elsewhere. (My Dad's paranoid about computers being left on, and thinks I'm wasting electricity doing it >.>) I might use this downtime to install Windows Server 2k8 on the box, because I can get crappy website up and running in about 15 minutes (Or a much better one - complete with logins - within an hour!)
This IS temporary. The server will be up ASAP, hopefully closer to the router and not 50 feet of partially broken Ethernet cable away. I set it up this morning, but it's apparently down again. >.>

Who's in charge of the server right now? I need some for a construction project
Server is up as of 6am-PST this morning. No guarantee how LONG it'll be up, all it takes is a nudge in the right location, but it should hopefully be up for a while yet. Still working on setting it up elsewhere.
Renovations. I currently have no place to do my homework if that makes you feel better T.T
All righty, setting up the server RIGHT NOW upstairs, right next to the hub. Just getting the new hey0's first.
hoping to have the server running by midnight PST. I promise that once the renos are done the server will be 100x more stable. I may have an argument on my hands, hosting it up here, but maybe if i set up SSH or something I can at least have a reasonable excuse to leave it on 24/7.
once again, I am so sorry about this everyone!
Update: can't find the "new" hey0 mod, but I found a promising new C++ server that I'll likely run one I find out HOW to (on linux. That, or I'll get fed up and just use windows server 2008, because I get it for free through school >.>). it's apparently very light on resources, and plugins are written in LUA (Same language as Gmod's content packs! XD)
so yes, server is up. rejoice! Also, lag might, MIGHT, be a little better-I'm only using a 10-foot CAT5 instead of my horrid 50-foot CAT5 cable, which I think might have been a bit of a problem. Also, ops, please spam my inbox if you're no longer ops on the server-I managed to overwrite the ops.txt file by failure. It wasn't accidental, but It wasn't intentional.
Please test the crap out of this! I want to see if it was the cable.
...I have no freakin clue why the lag is worse than before, the cable's shorter! I'll try a new cable, and the C++ custom server. The only issue with the C++ server is not everything is implemented, so there's no damage or anything yet. On the other hand, plugins are easy-peasy to write, which is nice.
