Team speak temporarily down.

Since there is a new, so far unpatched vulnerability in the temspeak server code, I had to take the service down until further notice.

The guy who found the issue unfortunately released it into the open immediately w/o notification to the software developers first, so we have to wait now for a patch.

Message from far, far away

Dear all, I am finally on a long-awaited holiday (actually since last Saturday already). I jut wanted to let you know that emails might not be answered at the same speed as usually but within 12 hours max. As a compensation for waiting here a photo I took yesterday:

Server issues

Overnight I got 2 reports of abnormal crashes of minecraft clients. I just updated the server to the latest version, please let me know if you see any other weird behavior.

I am on the road and not sure how fast I can react, but please make sure you report everything you see.

Minecraft 1.10

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have made the needed preparations for minecraft 1.10. The new blocks will be tradeable in the shop as soon as we ca upgrade.

I do not expect this upgrade to have any issues. We should be ready to go as soon as the new spigot version is released which should be sometimes before the weekend is over.

Will announce when it happened.

Status update

Hey everyone!

I wanted to give a short status update! First of all, sorry for not being around a lot. I am very, very busy at work. On top of that, I want to finish one of my other projects ASAP since it concerns my hobbies (photography) a lot. It’s a WordPress gallery plugin that is specializing on photo blogging. The base functionality is there, but I need to do some more work on indexing and searching of photos & locations. From what I can see, the stuff should not be too complicated, so I do not expect it to take a long time, but with the current work situation, it’s hard to make accurate predictions.

Those of you who have been around a while know by now maybe that I am working in batches or spurts, meaning I do a lot for some time on one project, then take a break to work on something else, then come back for more. I know that there are some to-do’s on the server, and I hope you all can work around the issues. If there is something where you are not sure if I know about it, please just send me a ticket. I keep all tickets in my inbox until I have time to fix it, even if I do not reply right away. It’s very helpful if you let me know.

Something that I saw today that really reflects how I am working on the server (from the Oatmeal, click image to view source).

3So for those who are interested, I wanted to share what happened in the meantime with my photography hobby, since it seems I have reached a kind of milestone with my underwater photography: My photos are online on my website (for which I develop the aforementioned WordPress plugin), but I have been sharing now every single day since January one photo on Instagram. With that, I will reach today 800 followers because of a photo that I shared yesterday which reached over 430 likes. Considering that my best photos so far only had maximum ~200 likes, this is quite a difference, specially because the high ranking photos so far were more popular subjects such as Octopi. I am not sure why this spike in likes happened, but I am quite happy about this as you can imagine. I assume that there was some kind of critical mass in my followers count that allowed me to get ranked higher in the Instagram feeds.

Anyhow, the wordpress plugin that I am writing has one main purpose, and the same as so many things I wrote for this server here: To reduce the amount of manual work that has to be done. So my hope is that once I consider it as finished (if there is such a thing in software), I can come back to fix and enhance stuff here again.

Thanks for your patience!
