Introducing caterpie.helpmebot.org.uk!

The cluster welcomes it’s third member! Caterpie was created from a need – the need to a Minecraft SMP server to be hosted *somewhere*. My previous plans for the third cluster machine haven’t gone out the window – those plans have just moved almost entirely to metapod :P

caterpie.helpmebot.org.uk is an Amazon Web Services Elastic Compute Cluster (EC2) node – based on the “free tier” of services. The free tier doesn’t allow much in the way of memory, so I’m not entirely sure how well this will run.

It may turn out that the whole thing doesn’t actually work, in which case I’ll scrap it, but it’s worth a try. :)

Apologies about the HUGE hole near the spawn point – I thought I’d play with the server commands and TNT… ohai bedrock. :D
