What is Minecraft??
From the official website: Minecraft is a game about placing blocks while running from skeletons. Or something like that..
From Wikipedia: Minecraft is a sandbox building video game which allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. It is currently in development, originally by creator Markus “Notch” Persson and now by his company formed from the proceeds of the game, Mojang Specifications. Minecraft has been developed on the Java platform. The gameplay is inspired by Dwarf Fortress, Dungeon Keeper, and Infiniminer. The game is divided into two main modes, Alpha and Classic, where Classic is focused entirely on construction while Alpha additionally contains enemies, a health meter, and additional features and items. Alpha is the currently updated version of the game.
I have recently setup a new Minecraft server that players of the Alpha or latest version can use. The server is online 24/7 and is low lag and high performance.
To connect to the server, simply enter majorgaming.eu into the connect field in the Minecraft client.
