Stackoverflow Receives Death Threats
BuildAndShoot.com has moved to a faster dedicated server! It is now hosted from an unshared dual quad core Intel Xeon with 24GB memory on a dedicated data center network port in Las Vegas, NV, USA. Speed and uptime should be noticeably better!

OpenSpades - tspd aka Topo's branch
tspd is a branch of OpenSpades focused on smooth competitive gameplay. Mouse sensitivity and acceleration code has been replaced by ioquake3's code. Hitbeep sounds are added to indicate when you shot hit another player. Added the ability to hide all chat by press u and options to filter only teamchat and server messages.

Stackoverflow Receives Death Threats for not Delivering Authing
Mmmm, can you smell that? neither can we... however, that is the smell of progress! I don't think I speak for myself on this topic, regardless I think the game changing feature will see the light of day some time soon. Stack has been working 40 hours a week on authenticating, may all the hacks be tamed. We are all ecstatic to finally have authing' in season four of the leagues!
