So do we ;)

Some time ago our ISP merged with a larger one and in the process the
majik3d server's IP changed. The new IP is

Just ask how much. We all have our lives and can't code majik 24h :(.

Yes, server is also in development, but the source is not available for
public unlike the client. The reason for this is that we don't want
multiple copies (or derivatives) of Majik running, so that we all can
direct our efforts towards a single goal. However, being "not available"
means that it's not available for public download -- talented people
are always needed :).

Well, both the client and server are currently going through extensive
modifications, but tell us what you can do and what kind of programming
experience do you have. Then, if Namhas is in good mood he'll give you CVS
access :).
