    I get the whole streamline and update thing but some traditions will always stay.

    Terra-Arcanum; along with North Korea, the only Necrocracy in the world.

    The younger crowd wouldn't know them, of course, but they pretty much defined Terra-Arcanum back in the day. It's just right and proper to have the admin group named after them.

    This morning I discovered that they had disappeared from the list of moderators. Farewell Snowmane and Jarinor!

    PS: Did anyone of you, still had some contact with them?

    No, unfortunately our powers of communication are limited to communication with the living.

    What, they're like, literally dead? Who the hell is paying for server fees and stuff?

    I believe DarkUnderlord has been doing that for the past few years.

    A guy that calls himself Taluntain owns the server, but it could very well be that DU is paying him to host us. The specifics of the economics of this place has always escaped me, for whatever reason.

    We can all help out by clicking the ads on a regular basis though.

    Judging by what's happening with the moderators usergroup name, there seems to be some kind of a disagreement on the matter between the staff members. How jolly.

    Pretty much. After Gamer's Alliance folded, Taluntain got his own server. I moved this site to a few more free hosts which all crapped out, and then moved it to his, with the standard "you place ads, no hosting fee" dealio.

    Someone is paying for the domain though?

    I moved it to DU's Dotster account. He paid for 5 years in advance when Jinxed was difficult to reach and the domain was about to expire, after that I got Jinxed's domain login info and gave the domain to DU. Not sure when the 5 years he paid for will expire; I paid for the domain until I gave it to Jinxed and he paid for 1 or 2 years, but I'm not sure when all that was and can't be arsed to look it up.

    Domains aren't all that expensive though.

    Also, slightly more elaboration on why we're on Taluntain's server now: the main reason I trust Taluntain even though I've been burned on these "free hosting for ads" deals more times than I care to admit, is that Taluntain got this server for the very same reason - he hired it mainly because he was sick & tired of having to look for a new host for sorcerers.net every time some crappy gaming network folded.

    terra-arcanum.com expires on the 13th of May 2011.

    True enough, I've seen prices as low as USD 6.90 / year for a .com domain.

    So, we must find some other server/domain then? I really hope that we stay on the net untill the year 3700.

    After that we will stay online past the year 9000, and we could even go online on the other planets then.

    Just think, by then we'll have cranial implants so we can directly access the interwebz.
    Then somebody at T-A can shoot goatse directly into your brain.

    If I'm still alive I'll be a brain in a jar or a some kind of software transfer of my consciousness. Not sure which sounds less appealing really.

    I think I'd pick the jar though.
