That's an understatement.

Well, I might let you in on a little secret. There was a problem running the dedicated server on my own Linux server, so I ran it on the Blue's server for the past two months to test the dedicated and develop XAseco2.
So yeah, in a few weeks when I have a little more time, it will be easy to change it into a public Blue's News server.
