Checking status of Nebula apps and services...
Welcome to Nebula Core!
Nebula Core is a privately owned an operated "cloud services" provider built and maintained by Victor Rossi, a hobbyist designer, photographer, and tech enthusiast. Nebula Core is the central component in a growing network of machines and services, and aims to reduce Nebula users' reliance on major cloud platform providers like Google or Amazon.
If you've got a Nebula account (formerly Catserver account), log in with your credentials in the upper right. Having an account allows you to access the full array of features and services offered by Nebula Core, and allows you to provide some feedback, if you see fit. It's pretty neato.
If you need an account, send me an email and I'll set you up. Due to limited resources, accounts are only provided to friends and family at this time.
It's still a work in progress, but now updates such as this are shown only five per page, with back buttons allowing you to view previous updates. Technically, this should reduce server load and page load time due to not having every Nebula Nine post ever showing up at once, but in practice it makes little difference. Especially with the extremely non-functional comment system enabled, as it is now.
2011-05-08: New paginated home page, comment system still sucks.►
Against the recommendation of the bukkit development team, I went ahead and installed an early version of the mod that now features support for Minecraft Server 1.5. So far, everything seems to be working, including all of our favorite plugins, although the problems that existed before are persistent. Homes also appear to have been reset, although this has yet to be confirmed. Here's a list of known issues:
2011-04-17: Minecraft 1.5 server now running Bukkit►
The area in and around C.D.L. Victor induces huge amounts of server lag, and has been "condemned" until further notice.
The spawnpoint is still in the middle of nowhere, I'll hopefully be able to fix that though.
It appears mobs spawn when one attempts to sleep regardless of light levels, very annoying. However this is a Minecraft problem, not a server one.
I was alerted to the issue with the comment system a day ago, and have been poking around the PHP ever since. It's an odd problem really, as it's very similar to the issue I was having that prompted me to rewrite the way comments are posted once before. Apparently, variables aren't be properly transferred to the various includes, and hence never reach the code that's supposed to insert them into the database. Annoying.
2011-04-16: Comments apparently notworking. Also, Minecraft 1.5►
On an unrelated note, I went ahead and upgraded the MC server to Beta 1.5, although this disables the ability mods and addons temporarily. I guess we'll just have to deal with it for now.
Due to the large changes between Minecraft 1.4 and 1.5, the folks at bukkit.org have quite a lot of work to do to prepare bukkit for the latest version. Because of this, I'm not able to upgrade the server to the latest version yet. So...check back later k guys? Or just keep running Minecraft 1.4 for now. Either way.
2011-04-14: Minecraft Server still running 1.4, waiting for 1.5 compatible Bukkit.►
I've decided it was time to give my domain name a little trim, to make life a little easier for all of us. Currently, all services can be accessed via both addresses. I'm also adding subdomain "shortcuts" to various Catserver services, and I've reconfigured Catserver's email service, now hosted and accessible through gmail. "@catserver.net" email addresses are still available on request.
2011-04-09: Catserveronline.net is now Catserver.net!►
Last but not least, in the Minecraft realm, I reconfigured the server to run in 64-bit instead of 32-bit, like it apparently was. There's also a severe problem that occurs only when in the far west, toward C.D.L. Victor. It'd be best to avoid that area.
