A few updates on the comings and goings of Minecraft and Illyria:
1. Microsoft have bought Mojang for $2.5 BILLION dollars. Duck me...
2. There is no new news concerning Craftbukkit for 1.8, we may possibly try Spigot which will allow people to connect to the server from a 1.8 client, but it won't add any new features.
3. At some point this week the hosts are upgrading our DDoS protection. This will cause our IP to change, so the server may appear offline for a short while. Once I have re-pointed our domain name to the new IP you will be able to connect as normal :)
EDIT: Hosts have already changed the IP! It may take up to 48 hours for some people to connect, in the meantime though you can join with the numerical IP 188.8.131.52
And that's about it for now! What do you think about the takeover of Mojang? Should we try Spigot? Are we all doomed? Will Zee ever be pink again? Only time will tell!
