We have a thread right here for that. Maybe some people can come and answer that question there.
@zmaster: The launcher is super early and constantly changing. You can make it load mods now, but it will officially have a mechanism in place in the future.
Minecraft 1.5.2 is out and the server has been updated to accommodate. We're using a pretty early dev version of Bukkit, but things seem to be working so far.
You can also upgrade to the new (in development) launcher and never have to worry about updating Minecraft too soon. It'll let you run whatever version your want, though the only supported versions are 1.5.1 and above and the most recent snapshots. You can find links on the bottom of this page: http://mojang.com/2013/04/minecraft-snapshot-13w16a-and-new-launcher/
Hey guys! I finally bit the bullet and updated Bukkit to 1.5.1. Remember, we're running on Dev builds, which means they're only guaranteed to compile, they're not guaranteed to be stable. If any issues arise that results in world corruption, I'm rolling the whole thing back to 1.4.7 and reverting the world files to an older version. I have a local backup from about an hour prior to this post, should I need it.
So I have a long running PM thread that @Rallier added another participant to a while back for reasons. I wouldn't think he'd be particularly interested in following the conversation any longer.
My question is, is anyone who participates in a PM thread stuck receiving replies in perpetuity or can they be removed?
Ya man, still waiting for Bukkit to update. Not sure how close they are to getting a release out.
I just noticed the "Aol Tech" logo at the bottom of the site
On an unrelated note, I'd just like to say that it's borderline criminal that BB's other property "Tasted" hasn't been paired with Tested at all so far.
Other than the clear influence Tested had on the naming, I'm not sure why they should be paired when you consider BB's entire stable of properties. It's like asking why Screened and Anime Vice aren't paired with Tested these days even if BB owns them as well. Or you know, mom.me.
@tharig327: I'll have to look at that later, but my thoughts are that things like that might be better served in the forums. I'd like to bring better visibility to the server and it's related forum threads and encourage activity in the forums in general.
@zmaster: The other night I received an email from the host that there had been some DOS attacks on the servers. (Ours is hosted in Chicago data centers. Because this is Chicago.) Maybe it's a continuation of that. Or your internet sucks.
@zmaster: I done fixed the culprit. He was seriously busy, I'll tell you what.
A good way to get banned is to lay down the TNT.
When I had T-Mobile, I could pop my SIM card into any phone, whether it was a feature phone, flip phone, or some $20 pay as you go phone. In fact, that's what I had to do when I busted my flip phone and had a year left before I was eligible for my free upgrade. That $20 phone was a saving grace. There was no requirement for me to load any minutes on it; I just threw away the SIM that came with the phone and inserted the SIM I had when I bought my first phone.
Pretty sure this is the same with AT&T, but you can use phones that are either locked to your carrier or any unlocked phone. Don't worry about your contract if you still have one, that doesn't affect what phone you can use on your service. The SIM is the thing that identifies your phone to your carrier.
If you were so inclined and had the money, you could buy a phone for every day of the week and swap the SIM card between them.
Yes, there is a Minecraft server and it is also hosted at NFO. I don't think we need another ;)
Behold! Two chicken salad sandwiches with lettuce and tomato on a shitty store brand hamburger bun.
I have a bigger desk.
And the lock screen of my Nexus 7 for good measure.
Because why not. Everybody customizes their desktop in some way by changing the wallpaper, color scheme, installing a theme, or just jamming the thing cram full of icons. Show us how you made your virtual workspace your own. Anything's fair game, tablets, phones, laptops, desktop computers.
Can never go wrong with #teambrad.
@will: But I want to see all the lint!
I'd be surprised if you couldn't do it out of the box on Linux and I'm willing to bet that KDE and GNOME make this trivial. At the very least it would involve some form of invocation of the mount command or something.
@Pajander: It has been done.
