Braindead Hooligans Minecraft Server / Our Minecraft host has gone bye bye :(
« Last post by Goatie on November 14, 2013, 12:07:25 PM »
The day before yesterday(November 12th) I got a weird e-mail from our host Shard Gaming(formerly DaddyCheese) about immediate shutdown of their services. If you go to their website it says the exact same thing as the e-mail I received. I'm gonna quote it here to keep a record of it.
Quote from:
Due to recent unexpected trading circumstances Shard Hosting Solutions LTD has ceased trading with immediate effect. We urge all clients to take a backup of their data immediately as we cannot guarantee how long services will operate for before being disconnected by our upstream suppliers. If you feel you are a creditor please contact: PHILIP LAWRENCE email:- philip.lawrence[AT]
The folks over at The Register has written a small article about this weirdness going on. It looks like a lot of Shard Gaming's customers who rented servers located in the US has already lost all their data.

I still have access to our EU based(France) server and control panel, but I don't know for how long. As of 11:10 am CET* I've made the latest backup of everything on our server. When I find us a new host(probably this will be where you'll start off again.
*05:10 am EST / 02:10 am PST

I'm a little glad that this happened at a time like this. The next server payment was to be paid in December, so I still got the money you lovely people have donated towards the server costs. Our data and money is safe for now and is ready to be transferred over to a new host when I've found the right one. The downside is however that when our current server gets shut down I'll have to wait till the start of December with renting a new server. I hope you guys have the patience to wait a week or two before you can play on the server again. Hopefully you have other servers and your singleplayer worlds you can play around with.

That's all for now I guess. I'll keep an eye out for news about Shard Gaming and I'll start researching new hosts and see which ones fits us best.
Cheers :)

[UPDATE: Nov. 19th 11:39 PM CET]
For some funny reason the server is still up and running. The servers control panel is also running but it can't connect to the server correctly so I can no longer use it to restart the server or anything. I just did another backup of all our data on the server so we'll be more or less up to date when we move over to a new host.

I haven't been able to find anything new about the crazy and sudden shutdown of Shard Gaming other than people losing lots of money by paying for a full year of service and only got 1-2 months before the shutdown. In my eyes this is starting to look more like a kind of robbery. They still offered their services right up till the shutdown. I'm a bit sad and pissed at the same time on the behalf of the other customers losing money on this. I'm hoping to find more information on this matter. I'd like to know what goes on in the inner circles of small companies doing this kind of stuff to their customers.

So the Halloween update has already been released! o_O
I'm cleaning up the server now and we should be up and running within the next 1 or 2 hours.

Alright, I've been doing a lot of testing with our current server world and the 1.7 pre-release. I've wanted to make a video so it's easier for me to show you what goes wrong because of the new way Minecraft creates worlds, but somehow my computer was borked so it didn't record anything of it. But yeah, we'll be starting all over again with a whole new world on a vanilla server.
When you log on the new server for the first time I'll give you each 4 blocks of diamond(36 diamonds) and an enderchest to keep them safe. This time I'll also keep the server whitelisted so you don't have to bother with annoying guests any longer. I will however let some of my real life friends and some streaming buddies on if they want.

I'm guessing the official 1.7 release will be out on the 31st so when I get my hands on the new server software I'll start cleaning up on the server and remove old files. Right now I'll put together the whitelist so it's ready when the server is updated.

I think that's all for now... cheers!
