|Minecraft Game Server Update|
Posted by: Hobbs at 08-27-2015 15:58 PM
|Hay everyone! Just to let you know the MineCraft Game server will be down sometime during the weekend of the 5th and 6th.
Why will the server be down?
1. I've been working on a new system build for a new gaming computer monster, and I need some parts from my current computer so I can see if the parts that I already have are working they way they should.
2. The current system is due to some hardware cleaning/dusting. as well as some old data to be dumped/defragged for a better performance.
Max downtime is 5 hours.
Why cant you wait till the week?
I work Monday through Friday 12 hours a day. I just don't have the time during the week.
|Spotlight: FurrTrax Minecraft Server Launched!!!|
Posted by: Hobbs at 08-09-2015 19:57 PM
|So after a few delays. we are proudly able to launch the server full time. The server will expand more once we get a dedacated server to host it. However in the mean time we have a server with multi worlds, with up to 150 players. and a few other plugins.
Do keep in mind though that the server is still a work in progress, if you find any bugs with it, please message Hobbs.
In the event you can not connect just try a few times. the first time you connect will be the hardest. if you cant connect after about 5 trys you can either restart minecraft or try again in a hour or so.
We will be looking for more Gameserver Mods, so do keep this in mind if you wish to be a mod on the gameserver.
Even though the server is running on 1.8.7 You can play and connect with 1.8.8
Server IP : mc.furrtrax.com
Remember to keep checking back from time to time. FurrTrax may run other servers. for games that you like.

|I walked into work today to start on a project and was told to gather my tools and belongings and leave, and handed a letter of termination, citing unprofessional conduct with no details in the slightest..... After working for this company from their very start, 10 years now. The site will remain up as long as i am able to keep it going, donations will be greatly needed for the site to endure.
|Login Problems - How to Fix|
Posted by: DarkXander at 07-16-2015 17:07 PM
|An issue with password hashing has been identified and a fix has now been put into place, if you have been unable to login recently and your sure your password was correct, please try logging in once more and the system should now check your login for a damaged hash, and fix it automatically!
If your hash is damaged, your first login attempt will fail, but just try again, the second attempt to login should be successfull as long as your password is correct the system will automatically fix it.
The Gamma app will not fix this for you however, if the app is not able to log you in, use the website or mobile site, after logging in there, the Gamma App should work once again.
|Furnation.com Serious Flaw, Reyedog refused to fix.|
Posted by: DarkXander at 07-02-2015 20:00 PM
|So in a good intentions effort i extended an offer to assist Reyedog with his site, in which he lied to me, and said, We didnt get attacked, it was all just a server error.
Well screenshots showing furnations homepage being trolled obviously shows he is lying, and trying to cover it all up.
I did a little brief recon on their server and found the flaw that allowed them to be litterally shut down, and tried via Inkbunny, Skype, Yahoo, and even furnation itself to tell Reyedog how to fix this issue, and he bans me because he seems to want to pretend it all never happenned.
I tested the exploit for 10 seconds, from my cell phone which has little to no real power, and they went down instantly. I quickly shut off the exploit and after a moment they came back up. This is a serious issue, anypone with basic to moderate know how can shut them down without even using a botnet.
This is so sad it is laughable. My offer to help him fix it still stands, if he ever realizes you cant lie to everyone, and accepts the help.
|Furnation.com is DOWN, Hacked Possibly?|
Posted by: DarkXander at 07-02-2015 10:55 AM
|Furnation.com is down, and apparently has been for some time today, i just noticed when i tried to go their to scope out the competition a little and i was greeted by a complete timeout. On their facebook page there is a mention by someone in a comment that they seem to be having trouble with a hacker. And they report they have had a mass loss of accounts in their database....
I worry that perhaps this hacker may have compromised their Database Server and possibly gained access to peoples usernames, email addresses, and passwords or hashes. As anytime there is a security issue with a site that you use i recommend, if you use or had an account on Furnation.com, if it hasnt been mass deleted already, go change your password when the site comes back up, IF it does come back up.....
We will keep an eye on this situation, and our own security logs

|PSA: BLACKOUT: NSA Patriot Act is Dying, Lets Burry it alive!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-30-2015 10:12 AM
|Tommorrow at 11:59PM unless congress has signed the renewal, the Patiot Act, which is the legislation that allows the NSA to spy on us will die, and the NSA will have to bring a large number of their spy operations to a close. Lets help force congress to do the right thing, which is for them to do nothing, and let the Act Expire.
This number has been setup to call into congress and speak your mind:

Whether you agree or disagree with what Edward Snowden did, the information he shed light to on the Depth of NSA Spying is shocking, and needs to be put to a permanent end!
|FurrTrax Gamma Project - IOS/Apple App|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-20-2015 08:50 AM
|For those of you with Iphones, Ipads, Ipods, etc. I have gotten an estimate to get a IOS App for FurrTrax made from the source code of the new Gamma Android App. So you would enjoy push notifications just like everyone on android. The problem is, thanks to Apples Money Grubbing it will cost us about $200-250 to complete and put in the Apple Store.
Obviously i cant foot that cost myself, the breakdown is 100-150 for the Development of the App by a professional App Designer, I have used this team for part of the Gamma App and they said they could have the app done as soon as a week or two. The problem is Even once the App is built, I would have to BUY an Apple Developer Account, to be able to post it on their store. That costs $100-125 per year. I dont know if there are enough Apple Users on FurrTrax to justify $250 dollors that i really dont have to spare in the budget. Feedback? Donations toward the cost?
|FurrTrax Gamma Project|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-18-2015 13:00 PM
|We have a new mobile app in the pipeline, codenamed FurrTrax Gamma, the first release will be for Android, and will feature Push Notifications, and if all goes to plan, IOS Support will follow soon after! No ETA yet, just keep an eye out for the news. I just finished building the new API that this app will use to talk to the FurrTrax Mainframe so now production can continue.
|New Forums FurrTrax Style|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-14-2015 12:02 PM
|The new forum system i have been working on is now open, find it on the main website. It is fully built by me, right into the FurrTrax system, fully integrated unlike the original phpbb forum now known as the old forum. The new one will not have any of the permissions screwups of the other one, and runs considerably lighter than phpbbs fat codebase.
Now that the forum is fully integrated it will also allow me to make a lot more features and options that integrate between the forums and other parts of the site instead of litterally injecting furrtrax member logins to PHPBBs seperate database.
Im sure there a few bugs in the new forum, and it isnt 100% finished, editting of posts, and deleting of posts is currently off because those features are not quite finished yet but be patient.
|Accounts and Logging In|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-07-2015 16:57 PM
|As of now, you can now login on Mobile and Full Website with your E-Mail Address and Password, or you Username and Password, both will work now. Also, Recover Password has been given an E-Mail address option as well for those who cant remember their usernames exact spelling. Hopefully this helps. There is also an E-Mail verification prior to getting a new account, to prevent multiple accounts from being created under the same E-Mail Account.
