My server (ts.soltium.co.uk), which hosts Teamspeak, needs to be rebooted on Saturday 11th August 2018 during a 1 hour window starting 00:30 UTC / 01:30 BST / 02:30 CEST for security patches to be applied. The actual reboot should take (much) less than 20 minutes. Obviously TeamSpeak will be unavailable while this occurs, but if you are using it at that time it should automatically reconnect when the server is back up.

The virtualisation environment that my server runs on needs to be patched (oh look, another critical security hole!).

Obviously TS will be unavailable while this occurs, but if you are using it at that time it should automatically reconnect when the server is back up.

Thanks

The virtualisation environment that my server runs on needs to be patched (yes, again). Therefore my server, which hosts Teamspeak, needs to be rebooted on Saturday 5th May 2018 during a 1 hour window starting 00:30 UTC / 01:30 BST / 02:30 CEST. The actual reboot should take (much) less than 20 minutes. Obviously TS will be unavailable while this occurs, but if you are using it at that time it should automatically reconnect when the server is back up.

As a reminder, please check that you are now connecting to the Teamspeak server using "ts.soltium.co.uk". I cannot guarantee that any other address will continue to work.

Thanks

Gavin

Once again, the virtualisation environment that my server runs on needs to be patched, so my server, which hosts Teamspeak, needs to be rebooted on Tuesday 10th October during a 1 hour window starting 00:00 UTC / 01:00 BST / 02:00 CEST. The actual reboot should take (much) less than 20 minutes. Obviously TS will be unavailable while this occurs, but if you are using it at that time it should automatically reconnect when the server is back up.

As a reminder, check that you are now connecting using ts.soltium.co.uk rather than the old garnet... address. I have redirected garnet's address to this new host, but will discontinue it in the future.

Thanks

Gavin

I am migrating services from my server Garnet, which runs an old 32-bit distribution of Linux, to my new server, Willow. On Thursday I will be moving Teamspeak to the new server so there will be downtime during the day.

Please change your address for teamspeak to be ts.solutium.co.uk (this will work now and after the change). Garnet will cease to operate on Friday 29th September. I have added notifications to prompt you about this when you log into Teamspeak. Apologies for the inconvenience.

A lot of our members are from the UK and I hope that none of you, or your loved ones, are being caught up in the events at manchester.


Again the world may be getting a darker one this day, but the acts of human kindness that are happening now are a dawn of hope for better.


Regardless of what was thrown at innocent people to make them victims.

Regardless of where and when it happened.
There was alway a bystander that stood up against fear and terror in his own way to help.

Today a cup of cheap tea can be worth more than all riches.

Grains of sand fall one by one
Rattling in the glass I carry
My feet crunching in the snow es im running

I pass the glass thu the youth
I watch him rune thru the snow
My body becomes light illuminating the path ahead

Farewell 2016 , 2017 will carry time forward

2016 is coming to an end.


This year was turbulent around the globe in more often than less unpleasant way. Many people lost mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons or friends to hate and greed.




But now it´s Christmas the one holiday that managed to jump across many borders, may it be geographically, political or religious ones.


It produced miracles again and again.


It became the time of year that brings to mind those things in life that are most important.


It reminds us to focus on all of the good things around us.


It reminds us on hope, love and the innocence of smiling children.




Wishing warm greetings for you and your family during this holiday.

“Baehrserker”

Star Citizen Alpha 2.6 is now live!

And there are quite some updates:
  • Star Marine: The long anticipated first-person-shooter. Similar to Arena Commander just on foot, you fight either everybody-for-himself-Deathmatch, or two-teams-domination.
  • Massive ship speeds rebalance: basically all the ships had their combat speeds reduced by 50% or so, bringing combat much closer together. At the same time there was a big change of how boost and afterburner work.
  • Visual effects and UI: A lot of graphics and visual effect, as well as a large part of the UI got a big overhaul.
  • New ships: Some special variants + the Caterpillar, Harald and X85
  • Bugfixes: lots of them
  • etc...

Full patch notes are here

But it is all still alpha, so the known issues are here
