As you have heard, the server died. (See lilk's post below.) However, this does not mean you must stop playing Minecraft. I know a friend, coolmatt30, who has started his own server and is looking for people to join. So, I recommend his server. He is also getting custom plugins created for it, so it should be a lot of fun. Matt's IP is 126.96.36.199:25566, connect and tell him Sad and lilk sent you. Hope to see you guys there.
