*COD:UO* - New Austin CoD:UO Retrieval Server
I am moving the UO Retrieval server to some data center space that I already had leased here in Austin. So the [AS] servers will all finally be back in Austin. :woot:
On the down side... your pings will probably jump up between 5 and 10 points. On the plus side... all regs should now have access to the smack commands (!ns, !gj, !nn, !nb, etc, etc). A word of caution... If you spam them endlessly you will loose your reg status permanently. Why this change? Donations have dropped to almost exactly zero since the start of the year... so I saw no point in keeping the supporter group around. Apparently, people are either hurting so badly they can't support [AS] or they just don't care anymore.
The new server is setup and the bot is functioning. It will take a concerted effort on the regs/admins part to make sure everyone is informed of the move. Please do what you can to help ease the transition. I will be doing the following:
1.) New server will be open in tandem with old server for a few days.
2.) On Thursday (3/26/2009) I will rename the old server to "MOVED to 188.8.131.52:28960", change the rotation to a single map and set the bot to continually spam the new IP.
3.) On 03/31/2009 I will completely shutdown the old server.
