As many of you may know, the server has been down for some time now. I am sure you are all wondering why and here I will explain exactly what happened because I find it rather interesting.
So with the way our network runs you connect via a proxy server (hub.mcblocks.net) to then get moved to a "hub" server that handles movement between the other servers.
What ended up happening is that at exactly Wed, 26 Mar 2014 20:06:11 UTC or Unix time 1395864371199 we hit the "maximum" amount that an Integer can hold, what this means is that literally the next second after that (at 1395864371200) we had a fatal
system error happen because we overflowed the Integer that keeps track of the time. What this means is that the server time across the entire proxy went negative for the past two days, and I'm sure you know we can't have negative time.
The systems are now stable and by the way, the next time this is going to happen is at exactly 14 Jan 2021 08:25:36 GMT.
Incase anyone actually cares, here is the actual code that was causing all this havoc: https://github.com/Bukkit/CraftBukkit/commit/c1a47990408eda27f985c79e7ad6fbeadc8fc338
