OpenBSD 5.8 Minecraft Server


One of my kids is loving Minecraft , so we decided to setup a a Minecraft server to have a persisting world were we can play together and have some of his friends playing from their home. There is a lot of information in how to setup an environment in Linux, but  I wanted the challenge and why not use one of the most secure OSes as a host.
