Tag Archives: Minecraft

I haven’t posted anything on here for over a year now, but I’m not dead! I’ve been studying Computing Science at Newcastle University.

On the topic of “studying”, I’ve recently been playing a lot of Minecraft, an indie game by Mojang Games. It’s still in Alpha but rapidly nearing Beta, with there currently being 50% off the RRP of £20 (€18).

I bought it a couple of months back because everyone was playing it… Two months later, I run a server for the Survival Multiplayer gamemode. I bought an old Dual Core Dell Opteron workstation and stuck a copy of Ubuntu Server 10.10 on it. Configuring ssh, ftp, Java (the game and server are written in Java) and the Apache webserver were trivial. It’s been a great learning experience, I’ve been bash-scripting backups and little integration features ever since.

Anyhoo, the server is at http://inks.dyndns.org/, although you’ll need to ask an admin to whitelist you before you can build. Oh, and Griefers can look elsewhere… I don’t need your shenanigans, I have a degree to earn.
