-  YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'ts here!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

What a commotion, and it should, we finally saved enough money together to buy a (2nd hand) real HP ProLiant ML150 G6 with quadcore Xeon processor at 2.9 Ghz and 64 GB memory....

 

The time of having shut down minecraftservers (the software in this case) is very soon past tense.....

I managed to buy a great asset to our Minecraft worlds, and there is going to change a bit here and there in multi-worlds.

It has been since 1.13 that changes in the worlds were very big, namely the aquatic update for instance, and now the vil-pil- and ilagers... running around, I really had a hard time to keep the 2014 self build server up and running with only 8 gig ram.

In the new setting I think NewHolland eats 8 Gig only, Amigos 4 Gig and Midgard, if that is still the plan, also 4 Gig. Now we can slowly look at old worlds and decide what to keep and what to replace by new generated world.

Well, if noone is gonna say something, then i'm heading for a cup of coffee.....

 

Hi everyone who is interested in a small story....

You can still leave and go play crunchy candy or some overmatured version of pacman (although not every one knows what that is). 

I wanted only to tell you that Minecraft is actual more than breaking and building, there are worlds out there that have so much talent in house, that it would amaze you if you saw it. 
Well, we build slowly on some big maps, in the old style and in the 1.13 + versions, with all the nifty things it has and will be added in the future. Every server stands on its base of protection and playability, mine just as all the others, but sometimes things do not go as foreseen, plugins stop working, or half, or developers stop paying attention to it, start living their lives, or something took them away from access to the keyboard, that is the problem with plugins, they are made by mostly single persons and when they break all their fingers (could be worse), not a single word comes out of them, the plugin dies literally with them.....

Sad, but oh so true, they should all direct their sources through channels that can be lifted by others if needed, this way playability is guaranteed. Im talking about a part of the internet where those developers can store their creations and where only registered developers can enter or join, not a shady place, but registered.... Think of something....

One of those plugins is a credibility to a lot of people until the dev became sort of deaf.... PreciousStones. A shame that another person picked it up for his own gain and put some of it on the net for us to share, sadly he only updated the major stones, and not all of them, resulting in stones that will be recognized by the system and show what it is but functions not!

Another plugin I am very fond of, actually it is a premium one, shops, a chest with a glass box above it and in that glass box a floating item of the sale or purchase... Better get to it, he might want to hold the boat of until the official version is available... With the speed he is thinking, it is more likely that he is about to skip version 13 as we approach on October 17th 2018 version 1.13.2.

There are also a lot of other plugins that can keep up, luckily, one of them we started using a few months back and we had a lot of fun with it. EliteMobs. Oh, if you are a fighter, go fight some of those MF's (MobFriend's) lol

Go see for yourself, enjoy!

 

As the title does suggest, I think there is something really wrong with either the hardware or the software...

So, what is the matter? I placed 20th march double size memory in this server, it went bad to worse....so I returned it a day later.

Just to tell you that 8GB *2 replaced by 16GB *2 is not always a good decision. It did not work. Even opening simple chrome and explore the internet was not done, i saw errors whom I never saw before, even with all my years as system administrator and worked with IT during the rise of the Internet. So weird, I had encountered in the past problems with memory in pc's, but now it was a server...

Long story short? I have still 8 GB in my server, MC runs within 2GB * 2 and a hub of 512 Mb, that does it for now.

 

Until I can afford a Xeon, with 16 or 32 GB, i'll let this rest for now.

More and more often I stumble into the darkness of unexplained problems regarding the stability of my servers, hence the idea that servers are there to serve-you, but mine's annoying us a lot more. 

I have decided to split the main server up, gonna buy very soon a new machine and make it simple Windows 2012 R2 and install all needed and then pick a server and transfer the software to the newer machine.

This way I can appoint more memory to the single process.

 

I started out with one server, using only 8 Gb memory, and I did try to get to the bottom and pulled out all the power the machine could give. Once I installed twice the amount of memory, my server (windows 2012) had a real hard time adressing this newly added memory. Resulting in constant reset of the machine...

So I had to remove the memory from the motherboard, darn! Because I remembered that Windows server 2012 and all its predecessors have had problems upgrading after installation is done, it might have something to do with registering the memory and Windows being unable to see that the newly installed memory is good-enough-to-go. Same goes for all other upgrades, but I noticed a difference...  Memory is the real problem if there was a piece of hardware like harddisk, graphics, expansioncards..... etc....that would be accepted all the time.  This is a simple action, deregister item, (remove from hardwarelist), restart server, install / import the new item, check if server says it is ok, then start working and watch behavior...

 

Something like that.

Microsoft never gives info about this procedure, but it makes sense.....

Well, If you have similar results like I did, then I hope you won't have to buy a new server...

 

Good luck

I have been working on and off on this website just to make the looks and feel a bit better.... It has been quit a while that I worked with Joomla, that was in the 1.5 version region.

Now I noticed that the basics are the same but the graphical part is so much improved, that I was amazed that the Joomla team made it into this professional looking CMS. (Content Management System, if you did not know)

So to the team i want to say thank you obviously for your hard work; donation has been completed. 

Now where I left off:

This picture test is pointing now in the direction of the ART slideshow, but that can change..... I am trying to figure out a way to make more slideshows possible, but that is for a later point. Now, enjoy and leave a message that contributes...
