  1. PNRP Dev Server


    Just a FYI, I will be bringing the Dev server down this weekend to reload the system and install a more reliable hard drive. I have been putting this off for a long time, but due to some other issues on the server I will be doing this sonner, rather than later.

    Note: This will not affect the live server in any way if you are wondering.

  2. Garrys Mod Update and servers are down
