    Impatient to wait for IP update?

    Connect here:


    The other way to making "" work instead of that hideous IP requires Windows.
    I do not know the commands for OSX.
    Linux users: you don't need help. RTFM :^)

    Anyways, in the future, if the IP changes again, you'll need to redo this but using the new IP at the current time.
    Here's the short how-to!
    1) Run "cmd" as administrator
    2) Type/copy-paste: echo >> %windir%/system32/drivers/etc/HOSTS
    3) Close the command window and try to connect via Minecraft. If it doesn't work, you probably have the Windows DNS client disabled; leave it be and don't bother starting it. I wouldn't know why it's disabled, and I prefer to... you know... let your computer live for the 3-4 years it's supposed to?

    If I/someone don't/doesn't post the new IP if this were to happen again, try toying with this site:

    My software doesn't have bugs. It just develops random features.

    Do you have a hour emergency call systems broadcasting radio station WNYW or Internet Explorer?
