Since late August of 2007 I've had a custom built server co-located in St. Louis. One which was built to run UT3, which didn't turn out as most of us had hoped for. Even so I have been running various mods for UT3 as well as free hosting UT3/UT2004 servers for Pinky's Playhouse and the T5K Clan. I also ran a TF2 server which was fairly busy until the achievements came out and along with it, achievement whores which ruined it for me.
But now it is time to call it quits. After the end of this month the game servers will be stopped and the server box will be relocated back to my home.
I want to personally thank Cain once again, who graciously allowed me to "take over" and host Onslaught for the CLRs who still loved it when he closed his UT2004 servers. (Given that some of his UT2004 server competition is still active today, I think he could have mopped the floor with them for a couple more years had he chosen to continue. )
I had the pleasure of meeting Cain and his wife in person during a trip through South Carolina and it was a great priviledge. And yes, I witnessed the awesome Cain Home Theatre. "Master and Commander" was thundering through that sound system. What a great treat.
To help keep this short(er) I also want to thank all the CLRs who I've met since one fateful day when I joined an Onslaught server that had "Cain's Lair" in the name. And all the others who followed, such as the Titan community and Pinky's, I wish all the best.
Thanks to you all for some very fun times. I'll continue to post now and again.
With love and regards,
