Okay I am about to beaten up by my 7 year old son and my 9 year old daughter. My husband is no help. I am the computer guru or was until mac took over my brain in 2006 and all went to hell. Before I could put a computer together like nobodies business. Now I am a mom with mush brain. Yes probably like your mother. Anywhoooo....what I want is to form a social minecraft club here in my house...yes my kids are geeks and this is my way of getting the to socialize. Sneeky eh? Eh maybe not. I am not that stealthy. Okay. Yes I know I could get us set up on a local network here at my house on my mac I have here. My problem though is well...what if we are out of town and the other kids want to hold it over at someone elses house? I am looking to only have less than 10 kids on this thing at a time. So can someone walk me through what I need to do to get a server set up that isn't on my computer...guessing i need to pay for space somewhere and also would like it to be pretty safe and no weirdos getting on. Besides we will always have mommy's around playing on it to...well maybe after some wine. So who wants to walk my cute ass through it?? wink wink?? Thanks! Oh and it would be nice if ipad and computers could use but if only computers than thats the way it will be! oh and hell no to the xbox.
