Doesn’t really have much of an effect yet, but the CPU in my server was upgraded about 30 minutes ago from a single core Celeron D 2.53GHz (256KB cache, 533MHz FSB) to a dual-core Pentium D 3GHz (4MB cache, 800MHz FSB). Now I just need to find something to do with all of that power! […]

Finally got around to setting up a website. I’ll probably get a better template up here once I get enough time. But for now, this is fine. BZExcess is currently hosting two maps for the 2.0.x version of the game. Port 5154 is running Louman’s Metropolis, and port 5167 is running a map called “Rabbit […]
