Minecraft 

An old friend of mine is looking to set up a Bedrock #Minecraft server. Knowing nothing about Minecraft, what kind of specs would a box running such a Bedrock server require?

@drwho The server should be pretty light. I think I've run Bedrock server for a total of 3 weeks but looking around it sounds like the same recommendations as the Java days when I had a few: Faster the single core processor speed the better, 1G of RAM base then 256MB per player. If you perceive chunks' loading time while moving, scale up. You could essentially run it on a toaster as long as it's 64-bit.

@drwho@hackers.town @chip@talking.dev yep it'll run on a 64 bit toaster with at least a gig of ram no problem. a repurposed netbook makes for an ideal home minecraft server if that's the goal.

@purple @drwho Great point on the repurposed netbook! Then you get some built-in battery backup and there's likely some cheap second-hand.

@chip @purple I kinda wish I hadn't sent Dragonfly in for recycling now.
