We just installed a $20,000 server donated by Liquid Telecom. Liquid have also given us an uncapped link to their backbone network and will announce our IP address space at every IXP they can reach in Africa. This means that, for the first time ever, gamers in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa will all have fast access to the same server.

Stay tuned. It will take us a few weeks get everything set up properly. Big thanks to Ben Roberts, Andrew Alston, and the rest of the team at...

TrackMania Nations Forever is an awesome free multiplayer racing game that Wikipedia sums up nicely:

"Instead of following the usual trend of choosing a set car and track to play the game, in TrackMania the players can create their own tracks using a "building block" process similar to that of the 1984 game Excitebike, the 1985 game Racing Destruction Set and the 1990 Brøderbund release, Stunts.

Unlike most other racing games, the TrackMania series lets the player race a track as many times as...
