    posted a message on EPIC farm
    consider expanding, when i first started animal farming after breeding was introduced, i didn't realize how overwhelming their numbers get after the first few days/how clustered they get/how frustrating continuing to breed them gets in large numbers.

    my average farm is divided by how many animals i care to take care of(typically, i just do chickens for feathers+food, but sometimes i do all 4). a good sized pin for me is approx. 32x12, this lets me have over 100 animals without too much work being put into breeding.

    another method is to put 2 animals in a small(2x1/2x2) pin, and just build one for each set of animals to keep from too much clutter; easily the most functional farm, and requires a very minimal amount of manual labour

    If made legit - amazing!

    If used with mods, well designed but not anything special.

    why? why should how it's made affect how it's portrayed overall? that's such a bad way to look at art. that's like judging any piece of art that focuses on a female and giving it half credit because the mona lisa is also female..

    I should have figured that Internet Explorer was the security hole maker. x.x

    security hole maker? ie9's security is top-notch. chrome in itself is a security hole. hence why no major figure supports it.

    the s refers to an ssl certificate. it's typically only used in the case of money/personal information transactions online, and it assures the users that the site in question is, in fact, secure. the ssl certificate encrypts your entire session with this site, so nothing(such as a pc hijacker), would be able to monitor it.

    as for switching browsers, it's irrelevant. use what you prefer, but don't use chrome.

    posted a message on Why do Minecraft servers suck so much?
    this thread isn't about the servers you play on or why you think they're amazing. it's about: why do a majority of minecraft servers last less than a week.

    1: in survival, players have the mentality of "winning".
    i personally find myself bored with a map once i've gone through the necessary stages to reach the end. fancy house, various animal farms, wheat/melon/pumpkin/wart farms, farmed blazes, 30 bookshelves.. etc. i'm sure this mentality follows through with many players, and is reachable in a very short amount of time. thus, servers die.

    2: public servers/servers with offline mode enabled are often grieved beyond repair. this, however, is not always the case; the mentally from my previous opinion often leads to the detonation of an entire map out of boredom.

    it could also be just because the internets are full of cancer that calls themselves trolls, thus making it 'okay' to be a total douchebag.

    3: lack of creativity.
    i've found, in my very extensive time in this game, that out of an entire server, 1:5 of them is actually creative. in many servers i've joined, i'll make a simple and ok-ish looking base of operations near where i find a mine or something. someone, usually an admin, comes by and admires my craftsmanship and either a: tells people to come see, or b: burns it to the ground.

    either way, it gets recognized.

    later, the person who found my house will begin building their own, because they're slow and it took an ingame week to start this. they'll try to copy my design and, typically, fail miserably. they then proceed to ask for assistance, in which i comply, to only find out that i'm now building their entire house.

    after it's finished, i leave them to marvel at the house they'll claim to have built to all of their friends, and then they'll get bored because they can't truly appreciate something they didn't build.

    [...]Is it possible to go to the nether??

    yes.



    the only thing i have left to do in this world is build a cozy house up here and lay down all the books for my enchanter. i've already got a wart farm in the nether, and a brewing stand sitting in one of my chest. i was forced to build a high platform to get away from that awful sound..


    the farms ontop of my platform:




    the platform itself:



    the biggest headache i've had in years:



    i know that slimes only spawn in the 16 lowest layers, but aren't they suppose to be a bit rarer? that sound is killing me.
