The games are currently online!

By this point, the DNS info has probably propagated, so you can connect via like normal. If it hasn’t yet gotten to you yet,  you will be able to access the games normally by using the domain instead of After the migratory period is over, you should be able to connect to the games just like how you used to be able to!

The games are currently active as such:

Star Conquest is online on ports 7777 and 7771.

Star Conquest: Classic is online on port 7888.

SquidMOO is online on ports 4444 and 4000.

hey yo so i guess i’m in the web 2.0 version of this is scary and i think i’m going to ask jason to knock it down to my web 0.5 standards.

Anyways, with that out of the way, I’m going to peg the server’s return at -probably- within the next 2 to 3 days. Bear in mind, this estimate is very, how to put it, optimistic. It could be longer, (or shorter) but we’ll try to get everything sorted as soon as possible. The server should be up TOMORROW, FRIDAY 2010.07.30. Watch out for bears.

In closing,

Well, I didn’t want to worry anyone, but the truth is that our plug was pulled before we had quite succeeded in recovering our data. In fact, the process was halted at precisely 99% like a cliffhanger from an episode of 24.

However, this evening, our brave server admin recovered the actual server itself, so our data and hardware is all intact and back in our hands.

Now to find a place to plug it in…

Welcome to the (new/temporary?) Squidsoft website! Sadly, circumstances have conspired such that we have lost our server suddenly and unexpectedly! You may consider this to be a life lesson about the often tragic vagaries of fate. I really don’t know much more than that, so that’s all for now! Have a lovely day!
