Some of you might know I run a Minecraft server (among other things) for NoobsParadise.com. It used to be a pretty large Counter-Strike Source community, but lost a lot of activity over the years as people moved on to newer and better games. When CS:GO came out, myself and a few others tried to re-launch the community with a new website and server, but it only managed to hold people’s attention for about six months before it wasn’t worth keeping the servers up anymore.
Anyway, during this time I also threw up a Minecraft server just for fun. That seemed to take off more then the CS:GO server, with people putting in a ton of time and creating some really cool stuff. Since I have been posting a lot of PC builds lately, I might as well show you what is currently running that Minecraft Server. It is some pretty low end hardware, but more then capable of running Minecraft with a couple of dozen people playing at once. It sits in the corner of my computer room pretty silently running the game. It has no monitor or keyboard and mouse. The server is administrated over SSH.
