    That sounds good, just make sure you realize with Minecraft it isn't about the number of cores but the speed per core. Minecraft (and by extension Craftbukkit) are only able to utilize a single thread so having 20 cores at 1.6Ghz will do nothing. The only things related to MC that can run hyperthreading and/or multicore are Craftbukkit plugins. This is in reference to your idea of buying a dedicated server, of course.



    Well... though it has nothing to do with the server being offered...

    I am very aware of Minecraft's thread limitations, and the only reason to go Intel is to have the 3Ghz+ clock speed per core.
    If it was nicely multi-threaded, I would gladly be saving the money by going AMD.
    For that matter, it is the Mods (in my humble opinion) that make the experience, and those will gladly take advantage of far more than a single core.

    Far straying from it all of course, but the main reason, as stated, of getting a Dedicated box is to host multiple Minecraft servers as well as other (more monetarily lucrative) uses.

    Nevertheless, I'm not a (computer) Newb, and merely wish to offer what I am paying dearly for to someone (or group) who will put it to good use.
    As stated, I am working far to much to keep my server going for the summer, and would hate to be paying so much and not using it at all (getting rid of it is just not an acceptable option for my inner geek, If nothing else, I will use it to crunch data for [email protected] or likewise for the durration).

    Allow me to state, this is not a Home computer, it is in a data center, and its pretty powerful, Its not cheap, and I am sure that there is someone who can benefit a lot from using it for free (not just till the end of summer, but for as long as minecraft lives).

    Peace all,

    @ all

    Thank you for a reply.

    and @ Berick (if you are over 18, if under, please don't give even a borough) May I inquire as to what part of AK you reside, I'd love to meet fellow Minecraft fans in my home, and only state.


    I appreciate a quick response, as most people don't seem to get that the reason I am offering the server is due to not having the time at all.
    Sorry you cant use it, but not at all sorry that a clan such as yours already has a strong server.

    If you can suggest any clans/servers who deserve a good solid home, I would appreciate it, as I would really hate to be spending this much and having it sit idle (and me without a minecraft community).

    If you change your mind soon (er or later), get back to me, I have the topic followed.

    For that matter, I used to (again, when I had the free time) run a minecraft giveaway contest of sorts, and I still have 8 Alpha Gift codes left.
    If you would like (And I do understand that a clan such as yours involves most everyone having the full game already, but hey, hate to go to waste) to host a good contest for an Alpha Gift Code, I would gladly donate one or more to the cause.

    Nevertheless, if anything, I will probably get back in touch with you for a membership after this summer's work season is over and my time is... Mine(craft's).

    Peace and here is a toast to you still being around then.
    May your clan live for ever, or at least as long as Minecraft itself.

    So a quick question.
    I am looking for a good home for my linux VPS server, summer is here in Alaska, and its short, so work is 6-7 days a week, 12 hours a day.
    I can no longer find the time to maintain a minecraft server, and want the system to be put to a good use.

    Seeing as you have a server of some kind, I was wondering what and where, cause I like this clans direction and would perhaps be able to offer a better/more stable environment for your server, depending on what you already have of course.

    @ 8bitben and iSpartan


    Why cant I be offering indefinite infinite server time???

    The cost of the server is more than justified by my enjoyment of Minecraft, and I have absolutely no plans of ever discontinuing paying for it.
    So basically, think of the offer as having a regular monthly donator who pays the full server cost.
    So, for the sake of having a duration, lets say I am offering it for a minimum of 1 year, and no maximum.
    If the community grows, I am willing to expand the server specs, connection, etc.
    Donations would not be turned away, but are by no means required.

    The only reason I can think of for discontinuing [this] server, is to move it (Denver, CO most likely, as for some strange reason the pings are half or better from way up north, but I will take the userbase into account thoroughly before such a move), or to buy my own server and start co-locating to allow massive power with a lower monthly rate.
    I do plan on getting my own server hardware, or renting a powerful dedicated box if the price is right, by next year, after the summer work season, as I wish to be able to use it for more than just minecraft, as a small business doing website design and hosting for local Alaska companies. It will not impact the minecraft server in any way, as its always minecraft first. For that matter, I will be going with at least a single 6-core or two 4 core intels, 16 gigs or more of ram, and a Xen license so I can keep different uses separate.
    I'm just getting into the linux server environment myself, and want to be able to host multiple minecraft servers and voice chat etc.


    As to the Q about what else is running...
    Well, Nothing, I got this server for Minecraft and Minecraft alone.
    So other than mods, the game server is the only thing running.

    Aloha.

    For a while I have been running (or attempting to run) a small private server.
    I really enjoyed it, even with the hassles of a continuous upgrade cycle from a beta (first alpha) game, and a beta mod framework.

    But many things have gotten in the way of me single-handedly being able to provide a fun and moderated server fro my players.
    For starters, I started babysitting 5 kids, ages 1.5 through 7, 24 hours a day 5 days a week.
    Then Internet has gotten more and more spotty, due to moving out.
    And most recently, I got a good job, and its 5-7 days a week 10 - 12 hours a day.
    To top it off, the place I am moving into not only cant get internet... but not even a phone line.

    I am renting a Virtual Private Server from Allgamer.net, I am highly satisfied with their service and have been with them for about 5 months or so.

    It is the Ultimate VPS package, and is located in Sacramento, California USA.
    It provides low ping times to western through central US, western Canada, Eastern Asia/Russia etc...
    for more info on the package, visit https://allgamer.net/virtualservers/
    The package is good for 25-30 players simultaneously with a decent number of mods and virtually no server lag.

    I am looking for a dedicated clan, or an existing server community; who are looking for a good upgrade in server power, and perfect network uptime.
    I am willing to provide this for no cost to the right community, provided that it meets standards and will give VIP access to a few of my players.
    I may consider your beginning public server if you have been around privately for a while, and your users are happy.

    Keep in mind, this is NOT managed hosting.
    This is a Linux VPS, with full SSH and FTP access.
    As such, there is NO web console (though its easy to add MyMcAdmin, which supports bukkit and kinda permissions now).
    Your clan or server admins should be familiar with running linux from the command line, and with the internal workings of the Minecraft Server, as well as the mod framework you use, and the mods themselves.

    I will not be giving full root access right away, but will set up a user account (don't worry, there will only be one user) with all the access needed to set up, maintain and run the server.
    After time, given a good track record, I will turn over root access to the administrators.

    I will do my best to help out wherever possible, and will help with the initial migration and server setup.
    But if you REALLY NEED the assistance... well then maybe this isn't the right offering for your clan/server.

    Please post a "Resume" here
    Include:
    A bit about your clan or server.
    Your clan or server topic and/or website.
    Your current server specs, connection, location.
    The number of members, and the average and most online at once.
    The geographical region that best represents your user base.
    Your (or clan/server members) experience with Linux, please provide details.
    Your (or clan/server members) experience with Minecraft hosting, please provide details.

    And any other information you feel relevant or would better your chances.

    Peace all and good luck.

    Couple questions

    First, When you say dedicated core, what processor is it a core of? (and if intel, is it a full core, or a HTT 'core' ?)

    Second, Do you have a test server in Seattle that I can ping?

    Third, Do you have to submit an order to get the 5-day trial?

    Use the htop command to view system resource usage while the server is being used.
    Watch the processor and RAM usage closely with as many players as you would normally run playing.

    I have pretty much always got that message (a lot less since bukkit 733), particularly when new world chunks are being generated, regardless of how much resources are actually being used.

    I am on a very nice VPS and have NEVER had any issues with server lag.

    It is an annoying message though.

    If you aren't seeing maxed out resources, or server lag (ping the VPS itself repeatedly throughout the day so you know its not connection lag) I would say forget it for now and play.
    If you are getting high pings, use traceroute to figure out where the lag is occurring (close to you, or close to them)

    We have Bukkit up and running smoothly.

    Back to one server, running MC 1.5_02 and Bukkit 733 (740 soon, just waiting on a couple plugins)

    Make sure to take the :25564 off the end of the IP.

    Aloha

    MC 1.5 is out, but bukkit isnt available for it yet (except for dev builds, but im not online enough to play with that atm as they are not stable)

    The MC 1.4 server with all bukkit mods is still running.

    Just add :25564 to the end of the server IP with no spaces

    I would advise not making to many essential changes in the meantime, as i am not sure how the mods will play when the world is reloaded into bukkit.

    I WILL be attempting to merge the worlds when bukkit is stable on 1.5.
    If you DO make major modifications, only make them in either the 1.4 or the 1.5 server, but not both, as merging would be very difficult in that case.

    If you were smart, and haven't updated to 1.5 yet, good, I suggest keeping it that way for now.

    Remember, the 1.5 server is COMPLETELY vanilla, with NO mods, so day and night cycle as normal.

    Let me know of any difficulties and I'll see what I can do.
