Just so everyone can see it...
Just to try and preempt a huge influx of anger, the minecraft server is down and will be for probably quite some time. As of yet the reasons are undisclosed, and the admin team are trying to get it up and running again.
Please don't flood the admin's with steam messages! :P
That's about as much as I can tell you for now.
