      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

Self serving shameless promotion here, as I'm the one who transcribed this copy several years ago - but this is a 100% accurate reproduction of the English translation by Lionel Giles from 1910.  It's a great reference to the ways of ancient warfare and in many ways it applies closely to modern warfare as well.  Lectures and motivational speeches have often referenced the materials here with great success as compared to many topics from sales and marketing to self improvement.  The poetic prose is still close to the original, where the sky and it's weather patterns are referred to as "Heaven" (translated of course), and concepts should be read at times ambiguously when applying them to modern situations, and other times literally as they were meant by Sun Tzu in the way his world appeared to him, and the way his ancient world functioned.

When Armies marched on their feet for thousands of miles, the actual battle was only the small, final portion of the entire scope of the Art of War from food supply to gear to troop morale and discipline to espionage and recon.  Anyone who leads a team in a game of any kind can benefit at least in some small way from the time proven knowledge in this short work of writing.  Give it a read - force yourself through it if you must - you will not regret it!
