open kens server

Thanks Maxx! I got a strange comment from someone on Youtube yesterday who only had a Minecraft face, a name I didn’t recognize and had zero subscribers. The comment simply said:

open kens server

How can I describe the feeling? Honored, guilty and slightly threatened.

I’m expecting that face to show up randomly in different places online, just saying

open kens server

…. it’s a little haunting. Thanks for the birthday wishes and it’s my honor to be your friend.

Thanks I mean, it wasn’t odd that someone asked – it’s just mysterious. He/she never said his/her name. Who *is* it? Should I remember the player? I usually can.

What’s amazing to me is someone asks about the server about every two weeks – and I last had it up in September 2014! Blows my mind! It’s still here on this old laptop. I *could* whitelist it to just the players that were on it… if everything still works. [it should].

I’d have to get it on another computer ’cause the server’s constant use created physical bad sectors on m hard drive – it’s one of the reasons some areas of the server had LONG stripes that went for ‘miles’. Each stripe was lost data. Cut through people’s builds and everything.

You did something memorable, plenty of people miss it, so for now, best to say is you feel honored that you did something great that people remember. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone started asking around for the server to open, because 1, people miss it, 2, people will go to certain lengths to get what they want, even if it is a simple question

I’m very proud of the server and of everybody who was on it and everything they did there. I hope i can get it up again one day. I promised I’d never lose anybody’s builds and I won’t.

People spent lots of time and energy there. they made friends and enemies, relationships, fell in love, one guy used the redstone skills he gained on the server and is now in University studying to be an electrical engineer. Just amazes me.

That is a real accomplishment, you’ve started something huge, whether or not you get it back up, the thing is you were the cause of great things! Now is really a time to look back and relish the days when the server was active! And it seems you are doing that already, remembering and being reminded of those days yourself or by the random people that fell in love with the server so long ago.
