My GSP has informed me that while attempting to fix a ‘minor’ problem they managed to lock them and myself out of the machine that is hosting 4 of our servers (#3, #5, #6, #8). They’ve stated that they plan on completely reinstalling the machine. This is all well and good, but will be a pretty significant outage for us, since we have 4 game servers on that one machine. In the meantime, we have an update coming out in 20 minutes which I’m unable to apply since we’re locked out of the box, so the servers will be up but probably wont be usable :( Also when the servers crash I can’t restart them.
I’m not sure the time table on them fixing this, I’m at the point where I want to send them emails every 5 minutes, but I dont think that will help them get anything done…
On to the good news -
18.104.22.168:27015 NewbsTF2.com #01 24/7 2Fort (Los Angeles) NO CLASS LIMITS
I’ve added a new West Coast 24/7 2fort server.. I am thinking about adding a Chicago based 24/7 2fort server also (thats in another post)
while our servers are down, we still have some other fun servers we can hang out on
22.214.171.124:27015 NewbsTF2.com #09 STOCK-MAPS RTD [SMACKworld] – this servers a little +lols but not so much that you need to be suffering from major head trama to enjoy. The flavor and format of this server may change around a little bit, but we have a _GREAT_ person donating this server to us, and he can do all the customization and cool modifications we could ever want – so check out Psychonics server and give it a go round. I think his round times are too short, but what do I know, I’m a 24/7 2fort player.. :) This server is in DALLAS
tf.packhead.com:27015 NewbsTF2.com #11 — Chicago’s Payload Server | HLXCE – I don’t think many people know, but we do have something real special here. We have The Pack[head]. The Pack offers great VPS hosting to people at a reasonable rate, and even offers discounts to TF2Newbs Members. Besides being one of the most on the ball hosting providers I’ve ever talked to he runs a great Payload rotation server in a datacenter in Chicago. He needs a bit more love from us, since I’ve been slacking and not working to help get this server populated. If all goes well the Pack can do waht the Pack can, which is a lot – which means more servers and more fun.
If you’re sick of all the normal payload and 2fort crap our community seems to want to serve up, we also have 2 crazy funhouse servers bringing such hits as cyberpunk, and cyberpunk…

Sorry about servers being the bust, but at least we have some options
