- Dunadan tricked Epimethius into giving him the private server.exe, and then Dunadan eventually handed it to Steverino

- Someone makes OdyRouter, a static registry. Everyone used dynip.com, which gave a free trial. At the time the main registry was closed, so for a month there was a ton of private servers. Then, everyone's dynip expired and every server went down except for a server run by Prizm (???)
