I wanted it back up by midnight Friday, but what can I say? I got home from work and slept, then went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. Fortunately, however, I am up early on Saturday morning and posting that the server is back up and running.
I am also going to be doing some general work on the plugin set and possibly renaming the server to help draw attention to it.
The short of it? The Rust server is back up and running and I will be around during this August Long Weekend (at least for we Canadians) to enjoy it. Likely Sunday and/or Monday.
