...I just found out the server is down again, and I just got to school. >.> no idea why, I set it up downstairs and even checked that the ethernet cord was still plugged in this morning...
Anyways, while the server was upstairs, it was lag-free for everyone I talked to. This leads me to beleive my 50 foot ehternet cable sucks. badly. Unfortunately, the server box is back downstairs now. Compounding that issue, I need the box for my school assignments.
This means the server will be going down semi-permanently. However, Spike has a professionally hosted server that won't die every umpteen seconds! or ever, really!

This is an official move. Spike and I talked, and it's for the best. I really enjoyed hosting it, but it always goes down right after I leave for school - I suspect creepers in mah pipes. Or maybe those evil super-mario pipe-flowers.
Yes, I will be. Maybe not immediately, what with my massive crapload of schoolwork that I need to catch up on, but in a few weeks I'll probably be on for a few days straight :3
there was another reason for killing the server on my side, though, and that was location. After the reno, the ethernet cord didn't quite reach the server anymore, so it was sitting in the middle of the floor. I'm just guessing, but someone probably tripped over it and the broken ethernet cord fell out. again.
Just speculation, but I'm 80% sure that's what happened.
I get to be an op, too! :3 YAAAAY RAMPANT DESTRUCTION!!!! XD
