Hi folks,

yes, I'm still alive (if you want to call it so).

I'll take the opportunity to provide you with some information.

Topic 1: Splatterladder
10 years ago (OK, 9 years and 11 months) I was asked to save Splatterladder from going offline.
And as time goes by, several new versions of the operating system were released, php was updated, and hardware became much more powerful.
After some troubles with the hoster at that time (they implemented a SPI firewall which dropped answers to the server queries if more than ~30 players were online on a gameserver) SL was moved to a different hoster.
That was in 2003. Since then no hardware update occurred, and I spent dozen of hours patching software for an outdated operating system.
I'm currently preparing and testing a new server to move SL to.
Once the tests are completed, I'll move SL to the new server (expected downtime ~ 1 hour).

Topic 2: TeamSpeak server
As you know (and see on the main page), we are running a free TeamSpeak server which is used by several clans / groups.
Problem:
Our current license , a so called Non Profit License, will become invalid on June 15th 2021.
Unfortunately Teamspeak doesn't offer NPLs anymore.
Without a valid license only up to 32 slots on a single server are possible.
Increasing this number comes with an annual cost, starting with $55 for a 64 slot server.
TS replaced the NPLs with sponsorship. Unfortunately Splatterladder doesn't really fulfill the requirements for it.
Result:
Based on that fact, I'm sorry to have to inform you, that we'll stop providing the SL TeamSpeak server "soon".

Topic 3: Splattervoice Mumble Server Hosting
SV also runs on an (in principle) outdated operating system. Updating it is a pita.
Therefore I decided to take Splattervoice offline once the transfer of SL to the new server is completed.

Topic 4 , or call it 1a+2a:+3a
Since the NPL is bound to the IP address of the current server, I'm not able to use it on the new server.
Instead I'll install a Mumble server, and implement a viewer for it on the main page.
Clans / groups interested in an own Mumble server (or a dedicated channel in the main SL server) are welcome.


Cheers and happy fragging

Schnoog

I hope it all goes well for you with the new server install.

Can't the Clans that use SL Teamspeak pay a donation to keep the service running? I know we'd definitely contribute to it.
