Cambridge Death Server Main Page
Welcome to the website of the only officially tolerated Cambridge University Quake Server, providing for the needs of stressed students, staff and academics twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. What better way to unwind after a stressful examples class than to log on and blow some people away?
You can find more information about the server, and just plain chat and gossip on all things quake-like on both our newsgroup, or on IRC (Internet Relay Chat). The details for these are as follows :
|Newsgroup|| : ucam.rec.games.quake|
|IRC|| : #cam_quake on chat.uk.quakenet.eu.org|
To get in with the carnage immediately, go to the Games tab on the left - you'll find information on currently running games there. Unless you have the latest version of Quake or Quake II and are only planning on playing the straight deathmatch games, you will need to obtain some upgrades first. Fortunately, we have compiled this handy table of links to make your life easier....
The server is currently running a variety of Quake and Quake 2 servers, with experimental Quake 3 and Half Life games. The games page should have details as to exactly which games are running at any given time.
Messages of congratulation, large denomination banknotes etc are more than welcome :-)

We'd like to thank Dr Walker, CS D.o.S at Queens for pushing the idea (and buying us drinks - it never hurts), Queens' college for providing a place to put the machine and somewhere to plug it in (oh, and for being undoubtedly the best college in the place), the Computing Service for allocating a distinctive DNS name and agreeing to our terms of operation, and of course the various people who have donated / lent hardware for the server itself.
This project is entirely supported by volunteer effort and private finance. No public money was or is being used to support this project. This project is not an officially supported service either of the University of Cambridge or of the hosting College.
No resources of the University of Cambridge or of the hosting College are being used by this project, other than the staff time in allocating network numbers and names, and agreeing the terms under which this project is conducted. The continued tolerance of this project is based on there being spare network bandwidth within Cambridge which can be utilised by this project with no cost implications for the institutions which fund the network.
