A while back, I added a bunch of custom maps to BfB-CS1 (thanks to Tsop) that can be played (or voted on) by the admins when they are on.  Download the BfB Map Pack 2.5 to make sure you have all of these.  You can find it on the downloads page.

The second CPU arrived today and is installed.  Enjoy!

Thanks to all of you who donated to the BfB hardware fund, the hardware upgrade is almost complete.  I'm only waiting on one CPU.  You have probably noticed the servers being pretty laggy over the weekend.  This was due to me compiling (and recompiling) the operating system.  It now runs Gentoo Linux instead of Debian GNU/Linux.  I still love Debian, but I think Gentoo will serve BfB's purpose better.

I just want to thank all of those who have already donated to the BfB hardware fund.  So far, we've raised over $650!  The goal is something around $900-$950, so we only have about $300 left to go.

For those that are interested, here are the specifics on the hardware I'm planning to put into the server:

Tyan S2466N-4M Motherboard, Two AMD Athlon MP 1900+ (266MHz FSB), and Two PC2100 DDR 512MB ECC Registered DIMMs (1GB total)

You can click the donation link above to get information on who has donated already and how you can help make BfB a better place to play.

I changed the anti-TK/TD plugin so that the slap you get for shooting a teammate no longer actually moves your body; it only takes the damage from you.

Thanks to everyone who has donated a little money to the BfB cause, we've collected about 35% of our goal for a hardware upgrade.  Don't stop now!

Upgraded servers to HL 3.1.1.0 and CS 1.5.

I built a new kernel on the server and rebooted it tonight, and that fixed the lag that's been going on lately.  I'm not sure what the problem was, but it definitely wasn't memory or CPU usage this time.

Tsop bribed me to put more maps on BfB-CS1.

Now, the Counter-Map Map Pack 2 is available on BfB-CS1.  For the entire weekend starting June 14, BfB-CS1 will run ONLY these maps, so go ahead and download them now.  They're already on the server, voteable by an admin, so they'll probably get some play before the designated time.
