Server News:

We have updated Minecraft Server to the latest version that was released on Friday by Mojang the server is now running version 1.7.3, this update was supposed to correct a number of piston bugs and it appears to have fixed some, but not all. We still experience read timeout errors under certain situations, after investigating the logs it still shows pistons are the cause of the crashes, so steps have been taken again to stop the use of them in game until all issues are resolved and the server is stable with them enabled. Just for players interest I have included part of the crash log below.
