It would be great if you could give some more details such as specification, location, quantity available, etc for anybody that is interested (in a new thread).
this looks cool, i am so sad i managed to lose all my shard's data over the years :-( (had over 100 active players)
Update! New server built, racked & configured. Applications are being processed again
1. Please read the FAQ here.
2. Check your latency: ping -t ping.hosted.gs (e.g. from Windows command prompt)
