2012-03-10: Phoenix Server has risen!

Any long-time visitors of Catserver (that's you!) would remember our affiliate, Phoenix Server, from back in the old days. Well, with a little collaboration between myself and it's original creator, -pXn- Hyphen, it's back and already thriving. Check it out at it's new, temporary home at

2012-02-29: Windows 8 Initial Impressions.

Like with Windows 7 and Vista before it, I spared no hesitation loading up my computer with Microsoft's latest creation, and over the last few hours I've been evaluating (playing with) it extensively. There are many things here to like, and some very notable improvments, but overall I find myself wondering: Should I have stuck with 7?

If you've read or seen anything about Win 8, you'll know what I'm talking about - this OS is all about metro. Unlike some, including myself, had initially hoped, there's just no escaping it. The start menu that's been around since Windows 95 is no more, replaced with a full screen metro tile layout, similar to that of the Xbox 360 or a Windows Phone 7 device. It's purpose has changed as well, no longer being a place primarily to quickly access programs and functions, but instead acting as a home for Windows 8's new "metro apps". These apps are, for all intents and purposes, identical to mobile "apps" we've all ... [Read more]

2012-02-19: Goodbye Minecraft?

Unfortunately, maintaining and administrating the Minecraft server has become something I find difficult to remain interested in, especially since no one appears to actually use it (regularly) anymore, including myself. I'd be willing to transfer full administrative control to someone else, if they intended on maintaining and promoting it, but outside of that possibility I think it's time I give up the project. So with that said, if anyone can think of a game server of some type I could host that might draw a little more interest from our little "community", I'm completely open to suggestions. Leave your thoughts in the comments below, or message me directly via email. If you wish to take over control of the server do the same and we'll discuss details. Thanks for your input, guys!

EDIT! I updated the server, bukkit, MCMyAdmin, and WoldEdit versions to latest. Need testers.

2011-11-07: Wow, it's early.

So I've spent the last, say, eight hours cleaning up Catserver's code, doing a little optimizing here and there, and basically just herping around. So what does this mean to you? Well, not all that much. Yes, I know the Minecraft server isn't working properly, but there's only one real player so I can't say the priority on that is huge. Basically, if you spend any time poking around the site, you might notice I changed your account page, which (while definitely being a work in progress) will allow you to edit/customize your profile and site preferences in a more simple and user friendly manner. Also, animations and stuff. Last but not least, I also fixed the notifications system, which you may run into occasionally, and I sped up how comments are posted/processed slightly. Have fun, I'm going to bed.

You could start hosting dedicated servers on it. Even though most games are gay and don't have DSs anymore

Well, any multiplayer game we are going to play at a LAN that has one. You know... like none of them.

2011-10-25: Updating for a few reasons...

First, I believe the search is done indexing. You should be able to search/download any data stored on Public Storage. However, it appears certain file extensions fail to link up properly, so not everything works just yet. From what I've seen, it's mostly video files like .avi and .mpg. That may prove difficult to figure out. Next, I've added (or started to add, it's only active a few places) a new notifications system, which is basically a clean and pretty way for the site to tell you you've failed in some way. How fun! And lastly, I just want to make sure this still works. I'm having mixed results from pages using similar code. So here goes nothin'.
