Perhaps briefly.  We were able to get two servers going during prime
time.  Then people stopped playing at continuum all together, and we
were back at one server, so it changed nothing.

If we had enough players we could have room for newbie servers.  We
wouldn't have to fight over who plays on what server.  That won't
happen until we get a client that can draw people in.

newbie server == band-aid
trying to solve continuum's queue == waste of time
