Server Update

Hey AusCrafters!

I know it's been a LONG time since our main servers been down, and at this point we'll give you an update as to whats happening.

Our server is hosted in a colocated data centre. About four weeks ago, our tower which we OWN (not rent) suddenly stopped working. We had the host team run some diagnostics and a new power supply was a ordered and shipped.

After a long wait in customs, the PSU was finally installed only for us to find out that this was NOT the cause of our problem. We are now looking at replacing our CPU, RAM, and motherboard as well.

This is where it gets good
- As luck would have it, a good friend of AusCraft has provided us with the parts we need! However, he lives in Sydney. Our colo box? It's in Auckland, New Zealand. So we're trying to gather enough funds to actually FLY this guy out to NZ for us so he can install new parts and get us back online.

Why have we chosen this option? A few reasons. By the time we purchase parts here, get them shipped to a central location, theres a week. By the time we ship them to the data centre and get them installed, we're looking at probably ANOTHER month offline. Our old parts are high-end desktop equipment, and about two years old, while the parts provided to us are SERVER grade stuff, built to last and withstand our community! Also, the difference in cost overall would be negligible once we pay for installation and shipping.

We'll keep you all updated on how our friend goes with his journey, we all want to get back online to our usual map and builds. Raising these funds is our absolute highest priority at the moment, and a few staff are already willing to help us out. If you'd like to help us get AusCraft back online quickly and running better than ever, please make a donation in the store.

If you're able to help, it will be greatly appreciated by ALL players and staff, and will ensure that AusCraft lives on to kick ass!

Thanks for the update Camm.

Make sure that the GFoAC kicks the co-lo people in the butt for mis-disagnosing a dodgy PSU while he's over there :wink:

I've thrown a couple of stale pretzels into the donation pot too. Every little bit helps, right?

Cheers,

Smurf.
