    Hmm, The armed forces may have a problem because some days you may have to go out into action without cleaning.


    agreed, during ftx you can go 3-5 days without showering. If you go overseas you can go months without showering (I'm not kidding).

    Okay pal, but most of us don't have FTTH. Dedicated servers on the other hand...





    Wonderful! That's not my point though, obviously hosting from a different source is better mine is listing the pros of home hosting! One of the VERY big ones that made me home host was the fact that when I am done with running a server...I will still have my server I paid for and I can use it for whatever other project i'd like! Where as if you pay someone else...in the end you have nothing.

    battlekid couldn't be more right.

    Basically, unless you have a buddy that's willing to risk his job so you can host a server on corporate internet, self hosting won't work. Don't get me wrong, it is possible. However, the whole idea tilts on whether or not you have a very good, dedicated internet connection. Some people are in that situation. Most people aren't.


    I guess this is just one big **** measuring contest to everyone and no one sees my point of it being I ENJOY HOSTING IT MYSELF and I have NO problems whatsoever. But that's fine inflate his ego thinking he's winning an argument that doesn't even exist.

    Power reliability is really not something debatable; at least, not aside from the fact that home power is not reliable vs datacenter power. It's not because it depends on each home and the quality of its infrastructure. My home power twitches at least once every other month. Of course, a careful home hoster has his equipment on a UPS to to take care of that; in my case, a SmartUPS 2200.



    Just out of curiosity, what Minecraft server setup do you have that takes an entire closet? For that matter, why are you keeping a server in an unventilated area? Also curious about your 32mbps upstream.. ironspire.net resolves to a Comcast IP and I don't see a plan with an upstream that fast. What plan do you have?

    Also, I have to agree with battlekid's statement about home users impacting your server when they use the net. While careful hosts configure their network gear to account for it or even better, have a separate connection for hosting, the majority of people who set up a server at home just connect straight to the regular connection. When they start a big download the players start to cry lol. I can attest to this because when I hosted at home I didn't give enough of a crap about my players to either configure QoS or get a stand alone connection. Every time I started a download from Giganews (which can provide fast enough to saturate my connection) the poor players suffered :)

    Not saying that applies to you, but if you are going to recommend a solution to the masses you have to think in the context of the setup the masses will likely use.


    it is in a ventilated area the door is cracked always which allows it to breathe. My goal isn't saying mine is better I am just saying how much I love doing it but for some reason he is taking it as a **** measuring contest. currently I don't have it in 32mbps for a short while until I relocate it again I am only using around 10mbps I believe until i move it back to it's original location. I just don't see why this turned into a "bash people for using it at home" discussion when i was just trying to list the pros of it.

    And you do know the armed forces and fbi are two completely different fields right?


    OCD doesn't really exist...apparently you've never experienced it eh? About how if you do something wrong it will cripple you? It's horrible.

    Who ever made Star Trek must be ashamed of television today.


    I agree...i mean there are still some good shows out there, but nothing will ever be as good as star trek was...luckily there were MANY episodes in TNG and a good bit in TOS to keep me able to re-watch them a lot (=

    My friend's brother is in the army and they said you have to be both physically and mentally fit to be able to join. So if you don't have perfect vision or something then you won't get accepted etc.


    eh the vision thing is wrong, but yes during MEPS they inspect EVERY bit of you

    examples

    Vision (color blind or not), blood, background, med records, long questioning, **** tests, strip you naked in a room full of guys (or well to your underwear) and make you walk on your knees, back of heels, drop on your knees to see if anything happens, test your spine, BP, everything...it takes ALL day at MEPS.

    Ah and here we go, more insults.


    Power outages are rare? Oh please... http://powerquality....ker/default.asp


    I have no idea what I'm doing?




    ah you're someone that uses 'cool story bro" in the whole year i've had it up, not one outage. hrm.

    Let me just ask you one question, even IF you somehow out of some miracle in your ass you proved that power outages happened and that my electric bill was possibly 20$ more then usual...what is your goal? My server still runs amazing, is really fun to keep up and work on here, and i have perfect support for it. So please enlighten me on what your ultimate goal is here when mine is showing the pros of using one at home which was an opinion asked on hosting a server when yours has just been to bash the whole thread with your holier then thou attitude.

    I agree, meds will help but are horrible for the long run being as these fears are irrational and meds can worsen them once you get off them.

    Jeez, no need to be rude about it. It just shows your ignorance...

    Yeah, and entire areas do have power outages...

    So now you've decided to attack me over my points (which still stand, by the way)? That's quite a immature way of conducting a discussion.

    Hey, to each their own. But, a dedicated server offers much, much more than any home-hosted server can ever hope to offer.


    Ignorant? No, just a low tolerance for pretentiousness in kids.

    Power outages = rare

    attack you over yours points? Eh you decided to give me a list first on your all knowing godly ways first of why YOU think it's wrong.

    "Hey, to each their own. But, a dedicated server offers much, much more than any home-hosted server can ever hope to offer."

    I can agree, if you have no idea what you're doing.
