A timeline of Project Segfault's history
Terrific Tea Studios is formed
While not intended to be as the beginning of the founding of Project Segfault, it grouped 3 core team members together: Odyssey, Midou and Devnol, with some other people. This was all of us' first attempt at making an organization that focuses on computers. It primarily focused on development of products. This organization was ultimately killed in February 2021 when Odyssey brutally murdered it by abusing a backdoor in it's Discord bot, Cytrus-RE.
Neutron Technologies is formed
This was our second attempt at an organization, attempting to not follow our previous mistakes. While it went nicely at first, it eventually got to the point where Devnol (the current organizer) decided he had better things to do (not really) and left. From there, things went south and eventually we just deleted the entire organization's Discord (we werent convinced of Matrix at this time.). Since we had access to some hardware, this was supposed to be focused on making backend stuff rather than desktop apps.
Somewhere in July 2021?
MrLeRien opens a small homeserver with the help of Midou
This eventually formed a nice little (primarily focused on hosting) project called mutahar.rocks. Here, the duo focused on hosting anything they could on a Core 2 Duo HP machine with 8GB of RAM running Arch Linux. This alongside a small VPS they already had.
Probably October 2021
Mutahar.rocks obtained a powerful server
MrLeRien's dad's work had an unused Hitachi Compute Rack with 320GB of ram and two decade-old Xeons. Once he got his hands on the server, mutahar.rocks started hosting more stuff.
Odyssey joins Mutahar.rocks
At this point, it wasn't "official", but he did some work for them (like try to make a website, which eventually got lost and never found), and that's about it.
Mutahar.rocks started hosting gameservers.
Odyssey was in charge of most of them, which made him an official member of Mutahar.rocks. We primarily focused on hosting Source game servers, for example Garry's Mod. We also hosted a Minecraft server to a couple of... annoying people. I'm glad they're out of my life now.
Mutahar.rocks' main server was forced to shut down.
Eventually, after many months and pointless arguments with his dad, MrLeRien decided to give up on fighting with his dad to keep the server online. I don't remember exactly when, but I had to make an announcement in the middle of a class to tell people what was going on. Not fun.
Devnol comes in and joins Mutahar.rocks with his server, Helios.
When he joined, we decided that this was huge for Mutahar.rocks and we decided it was time to rebrand... This is when Mutahar.rocks became Project Segfault. Same thing - just a bit more professional.
Months later, 3 new members, we're better than ever.
We decided to get some new members. First, we started by getting someone who likes to do frontend development, Akis. Then, we got an amazing sysadmin who goes by the alias "openssl_rand". He does a lot of cool stuff for us, and he is very dedicated. Then we also decided that we needed backups, and then one of our friends told us he could help us with that. His name is Stephenvk. We also decided to just get better.
Project Segfault decides to expand and now develops software.
This started after Odyssey decided to work on Segfautils, an API for Project Segfault. Midou plans to start a huge project in the near future together with the team that can help people with multiple servers.
Resignation of members and the start of a new era.
Devnol, Odyssey and akisblack resigned from the team leading to a serious loss of manpower. To combat this, we decided to shut down some of our unused instances as well as the ones that were painful to deal with. You can read more over at this blog post.
