Hardware upgrade and official release of Roots
| Feb 14, 2015 07:04 pm | 0 comment(s)
After a long time in the making, we are proud to officially announce our new Minecraft Modpack, Roots. Roots runs on the Technic Platform and features many interesting and diverse mods. We invite you to join and make yourself at home. At this time PVP is enabled, and raiding is not against the rules, so be sure to find a nice, secure, distant location for your base to limit your chances of invasion. You can get full details on the modpack as well as installation instructions at http://www.negroserver.com/forums/showthread.php?1363-Roots
To go along with our new minecraft server, we have recently replaced the old NS 1 server with a newer, more powerful system- NS EX. This is a completely separate machine from NS 2, which still hosts all our Source servers. The upgraded system runs noticeably smoother than our previous system, while maintaining a much lower running temperature.
Beyond that, we are still running an alpha version of our future trade_negro map on our idle server, as well as several other varying modes of TF2 on our other Source servers. Our TTT server has been offline for a while, since it's staff has gone AFK, but that can still be fired up on request if it was desired.
Our server's IP is currently 188.8.131.52, alternatively you can use our easier to remember subdomain, idle.negroserver.com
We hope to see you in game!

Did some forum service recently, updated the software, repaired some broken styles. As of this writing, everything but 'DarkVision' should work as intended. 'Steam Login Button' has not yet been added to the other styles, only the 'Negroserver' style. If you experience any issues while using the forum, please make a thread or let us know.

The holiday has been featured in the Homestar Runner series.

Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.

As the longest night of the year and the beginning of the lengthening of days, Shabe Yaldā or Shabe Chelle is an Iranian festival celebrating the victory of light and goodness over darkness and evil. Shabe yalda means 'birthday eve.' According to Persian mythology, Mithra was born at dawn on the 22nd of December to a virgin mother. He symbolizes light, truth, goodness, strength, and friendship. Herodotus reports that this was the most important holiday of the year for contemporary Persians. In modern times Persians celebrate Yalda by staying up late or all night, a practice known as Shab Chera meaning 'night gazing'. Fruits and nuts are eaten, especially pomegranates and watermelons, whose red color invokes the crimson hues of dawn and symbolize Mithra.
