New host!

As of September 25, cmastudios server is now hosted on a Xen VPS in Chicago! This should improve the speed of the website and the server, as the host uses an Xeon chip instead of my 5 year old Pentium. The address has not changed, just connect with `’ like normal.

Victim of an attack?

Earlier today, my entire server system froze. I was able to execute a command, but there was no output for a minute and my minecraft server would not respond. I was able to check processes, though, and noticed a ton of processes from the web server. After hard-resetting the server and waiting 20 minutes for disk errors to fix, I checked the web logs and noticed there was a ton of spam from one particular IP. I have blocked this IP address and implemented a variety of protections to prevent this sort of thing from occuring again.

Switch to WordPress!

I have decided to switch the website to a WordPress powered one. This is because I intend to use this as a blog more. I modified the theme “black-with-orange” to my liking (like how the old site looked). You can also communicate with me by adding comments to pages. It will be better for everyone!

New site, new URL!

I finally was able to get an actual domain! I used to use my dyndns subdomain for my site. The new domain means my minecraft server, the CMA!server, has a new domain too! Use instead of to connect to the server.
