Sorry, gotta put my fiance through college.

I'll host small crap-plane games on my cable-modem, but don't expect much.

No, its more like taking care of your future without having a piece of paper saying you have a future, which noone has anyway.

I am just guessing here, but if Baldiejr is doing as i am, he was renting a dedicated server in a datacenter. Depending on your system specs, these will run you from 110-200$ US a month. It's not cheap by no means. Baldiejr can correct me if i am wrong here.

I do S~ you for your contributions though baldie, although i never played on your server, i do appreciate seeing others trying to keep teh online community going.

Ok fine. Put yourself through school!!! Oh wait, I wasn't supposed to say that in public.

Anyways, SPaRX is correct. I was leasing a win2k server through serverbeach.com for $130 a month. Untill I know how much my fiance will be making as a part-time worker, I don't want to take any financial risks.

Thank you very much for providing a server with out of pocket expense for as long as you did. Dedicated to the IL-2 community you are, but dedicated is to weak of a word for what you provided for us to enjoy this sim on. Extend my well wishes to your fiance. I hope she does well.

And as long as I'm at it, thank all who fork out of their own pockets for us to have decent servers to fly on. It's something that I would love to do if I didn't live on a fixed income, check to check. All of you guys are awesome and full of selflessness. Thanks! S!

I only wish I had your creativity! Good luck in your "investment" and keep tabs on her and her offspring, including every broken glass, cost to repaint walls (Crayola sucks!) and of course all those toys and clothes they so quickly grow out of!

Baldie, have you considered opening a paypal account and accepting donations for the server to run?

Many FPS dedicated servers use this concept and do pretty well at it, so there is precedence. I don't know if the sim community would be able to cover 130 a month, but it's a suggestion anyway.

Best of luck to you however, I hate to see a good admin go.

I mean I have cable and cable modem... The package (with HBO) is about $100.00/m.. Im a server noob! So, please excuse any DUH questions I post.. Im starting to get into hosting on Hyperlobby (AEC_EP server) and if I could *pick up* a "win2k" package for another $30 I would do it.. but if this is something totally seperate and thus an extra $130.00.. Well that is a little beyond what I can do! But does require me to say THANKS TO YOU once again for the time that you did provide the service!! -=S=-

Sorry to hear about it, but thanks anyway for FighterJerks. I had the best online flying in that server. Brilliant stuff.

And thanks a lot for showing us how good a game can be when both sides share the same plane. I won't forget FighterJerks that easily http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm so sorry to hear that you have to put FighterJerks to rest, I hope you know how much fun I (and I'm sure others too) had while it was up. Never before in the history of Forgotten Battles has there been a server where so many have had so much fun with so few planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I can't say that I blame you though, given the choice between your fiance and your virtual buddies there really should be no doubt as to what you should choose (even though it often feels like my girlfriend has to stand back for you lot, don't tell her I said that though, I mainly fly when she's gone to bed...).

If you ever bring FighterJerks back from the dead you have to let us know! We, the feeble, will be right here waiting. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Smart,


No, you get nothing else with that. This is not a home internet connection. There are server farms that will rent you a server and access to their connection for a fee. You have no physical access to the server. Everything you do with it is done throught a remote of some form. To put it in simple terms, in Baldies case, for his 130 bux a month he got remote access to a server sitting on a 10mbit line. No one but him has use of the server. Unless he give remote access to someone.
In my case, I am paying quite a bit more for the dedicated server i have. And if it weren't for the donations from the community that play on the server everyday, i would not be able to afford to pay for it either. Hosting Quaility server is an Expensive business these days. I can't say Thanks and S! enought to all those who help keep the servers i have running.

S~ and happy flying
