    Head up, guys...

    It looks like there might be a delay of a day or so in launching the UK servers. About 2 hours after I had completed setting them all up, ordered the HlstatsX accounts for them, and integrated them with our remote database/admin servers, I was informed that the box they are on has to be moved to another rack, and all the IP's are going to change.

    So....as soon as our service provider removes their heads from their collective asses, we'll be hosting a multi-national fragging party.

    My apologies for the delay, as it seems we are among the first dozen servers going live at this new facility (so I'm told), and they haven't got all the kinks worked out yet.

    I am very stoked that I live 35 minutes away from where these servers are located on the South Coast. :smile:

    One issue with west coast servers is; the same as playing on the west coast, later in the evening no one is on, the pacific ocean is way big after all. There are no earlier timezone people joining to fill the gap. However the time difference between Europe and the east coast isn't as big, so servers say busy longer.

    Yay for single-digit ping!

    And good luck administrating the servers. You and Invisible will be the NH first-reaction squad once our Invasion of Europe begins.

    UPDATE:

    OK...I just got my hands on the new box, and lo and behold...they didn't just move the box to a new rack/set of IP's, they left the old hard drive behind :evil:

    ...in other words, I have to reinstall/configure everything from scratch. At any rate, the UK servers WILL go live in the next 24 hours, as I will be working on them non-stop until they're ready.

    Again, sorry guys....but this is what we run into sometimes by always pushing the envelope.

    As an aside (while I sit here waiting for Steam update to complete on each server), here's the server specs for all you geeks out there (which match our specs for all of our game servers):

    Q9400 Quad core (1 core dedicated to each TF2 server - they do not share cpu resources)
    8 GB ram
    500 GB SATAII HD
    Unlimited Banwidth

    I'll let you know when we go live.

    Is it easier to run windows versus Linux for a game server?
