I'm actually looking to run a server like this, I've got the setup & everything going, but I need to see how many players I can host with it being lag free. The server is a slightly older Model Pentium 4 with 2GB RAM running Ubunutu Server command prompt only (recently upgraded to 12.04 precise) however the internet connection is quite fast (it's in the server room of my company ) & it's a dedicated box running nothing else.
I'll probably use this Forum some time this week to just invite players in order to give it a good hammering to see what its limits are, before I can host something 'official'. If you're interested, get in touch.
A bit about myself: been working with IT for nearly 20 years (starting with a 286 in 1991 or so, as a kid with games such as Wolfenstein, LHX etc. and about 11 years in a professional capacity), so know what I'm doing & I've been a Minecraft player for about 2 1/2 years.
I'd be able to record & use Skype (Mumble would be better though imho).
Not sure if you were looking to host yourself or just looking to find players. But I can host & I know how to administrate a server.
What I can bring to the game is basically a lot of IT knowledge & nearly 20 years of experience in playing PC games.
How long you have played for: 1.5
What can you bring to the series: maybe a friend
Can you Record (Optional): yes if needed but really dont feal like it
Skype (is a must!!!!) kjstafford13
