Since our server is going byebye at the end of the month I figured it might be worth finding another server to play on (that doesn't suck!).
So far one of the better ones seems to be http://oldschooldayz.net/
which has 2 private hive 1st person only servers with whitelisting and decent admins, normally at least one is full and there are normally always players up north.
I'm not playing much dayz these days but when I do this tends to be where I play.
