With 1.8 just around the corner it is time to think about the future. After a successful visualization project demeter is now safely running inside another machine with much better physical hardware. Because it does not take up any physical space anymore there is no real reason to shut it down. So as I had said many times in the past, we are going to keep demeter running for as long as possible in to the future. You will always be welcome on the server and any creations that you have claimed will never be regenerated.
