Joe.to Sven Co-Op Server is Online
I just booted our sven server back up, it's currently pointed @ sven.joe.to - all three work, the latter two are new names so they might take a minute to work
run > cmd > ipconfig /flushdnsshould fix the latter two not working locally
Big thanks to Prolix for making Sven a full time joe.to server.
A Ninja, Tokkengekko, myself, and a few others have already begun to play.
The Second Playtest of Warforts by Tuesday's Avenger will also occur on this server and will be fast download enabled.
If you already have Half-Life you can easily join us by downloading Sven Coop 4.8.
If you do not, the current price for the original Half Life is currently $10.
Come by and join us whenever!

Tuesday's Avenger Comes to Joe.to! (Sven Coop? In my J.2?)
UPDATE 2: SECOND PLAYTEST HAPPENING RIGHT NOW ON JOE.TO SERVER.
IP is any of the following: sven.joe.to / sven.prolix.tk / sc.prolix.tk (all link to same ip)
Server will be fast download enabled and will not require a separate download.
Second Playtest will be at 7pm EST/4pm PST this Sunday, November 23. Same time as previous test.
Tuesday's Avenger and our very own A Ninja have teamed up to bring us a playtest of an experimental CAPTURE THE FLAG map for Sven Co-op.

Hey guys, a few of us had the pleasure of playing a WIP ctf map in SC earlier this week made by Tuesday's Avenger, complete with different class loadouts similar to those of TFC or Science & Industry mod. Here's an older video of what it looks like before classes were added
Anyway, I talked to Tuesday, and we both thought it could be fun to get some more people in on the action for better feedback. He'll be putting up the server Sunday evening, with a time TBD (I'll edit the post when I find out) and I will post a dropbox beforehand for the map files to avoid slow server download times.
If you want to participate, make sure you are running v4.8 of Sven Co-op, and if you have any questions feel free to PM me on steam beforehand.
And a message from TA himself:

Hi all! Thanks to Ninja and everybody who's taken an interest in the map - it's a really cool feeling to have other people want to play something you've been working on. I have a whole page of notes based on everyone's feedback from a few nights ago, and they've been a huge help.
There you have it Joe.to. Visit the original thread post here.

Microsoft purchases Minecraft studio for 2.5 billion
Mojang, creators of block-building game Minecraft, have been purchased by Microsoft for a cool 2.5 billion dollars.
In a post on the official Mojang blog, Chief Word Officer Owen Hill stated that "Yes, the deal is real." Hill went on to state that the three founders, Notch, Carl, and Jakob are leaving the company to work on different projects. He also wanted to assure users that "Minecraft will continue to evolve, just like it has since the start of development." Many have speculated that the purchase is to help boost Windows Phone sales.
All points aside, I am really happy for Notch and the rest of the Mojang employees, they got really lucky with a cool idea. The success of this game can also be attributed in no small part to the great communities of players and developers (such as ourselves) who were given free reign to expand on the basic ideas of the game. I personally saw Minecraft as more of a medium, a platform for individuals and groups to create unique experiences. I am unsure of what Microsoft will do with this game, but I certainly enjoyed playing it for the last couple of years.

Comcast, ATT, Verizon, are taking away an open internet
Comcast and other ISPs are allowing there interconnects to become over saturated and not installing new peer connections. This makes services slower for end users. Instead of keeping customers happy they are requiring corporations to supplement the cost that the end users are already paying for an "Internet Fast Lane".
If you ever wondered why you have been getting worse pings and lag lately this is why. It degrades ALL other services and if you aren't big enough to pay for a fast lane you don't get the speeds required or the end users are paying for.
This will degrade and destroy independent game server operators since latency and jitter are the two killers for competitive online play. This would then require services like BF4 rental where you pay exorbitant amount of money per player and don't actually have control of the service or plugins. As an example we only pay $115 for a real physical server and a Virtual Private Server, we can and do whatever we want with them. This allows us to run custom content, game mods, and other services with out fear of sudden increases in cost or degradation of service.
I urge you to Call the FCC and complain along with your Senator and Congressperson. If not call Email them.
Classifying ISPs as a service like Telephones requires that service not be unduly interrupted and they must share there network with competitors fairly.
