You're right. Planning is the important part, there'll always be someone to pop on to get some work done every now and then. As long as everyone intends to continue the project whenever they can I see no need to pressure anyone. Like Brendan has been stressing; rl comes first. Smile

So, I'm just popping in to apologise for my absence recently, and saying I'll be out till monday (i'm in exams for uni now, and I may or may not have 2 days to learn 5 weeks of work that i ignored). We've had one post since I disappeared -.- Since we're almost done with the housing we should probably finalise the farm cave as soon as we can

Okay, I've not been on or visited the forums at all for a week, because my laptop motherboard unexpectedly croaked. I can't afford to get it fixed or buy a new laptop, so I've sent it and my previous dead laptop to a friend who builds and sells laptops for a living, and he's gonna either try to fix what's wrong with it, or chop up both laptops for spare parts to try and either put a working laptop together or sell the parts to finance building me a crappy but working laptop from other spare parts.

In better news, I do have access to my father's laptop, and I've talked him into letting me install MC on that, so I may be able to poke my nose into the server once in a while, and definitely will be able to resume at least reading and participating on the forums.

Dad cancelled the deal to share his laptop, so I'm once more without a means to play Minecraft. I should receive my new laptop sometime late this week, or perhaps early next week at the latest, but that expectation has been pushed back several times already.

My new laptop has finally shipped...via parcel post, the slowest (but cheapest) method. It should be here by the end of the week, though.

definitely...

unfortunately I haven't been too active the last few days... last time i had a chance to play (before today), i found the hunger games server and had a bit of fun demolishing people...

yesterday I did half a star wars marathon (didn't get time to do both trilogys)... When I die i want a funeral like Qui-gon Jinn just sayin

anyway, i should be better with the server soon Smile even I need to take a break from it every so often

I figured it had been too long, so we organised one with a few friends Smile

And since I'm such a smartass, I found a few great things with padame and anakin Wink
First off, he;s hitting on her when he's 9, upon first sight... she's 5 years older
They have time alone in a beautiful place (i wanna go there one day), and she cuts him down. About to die, she then goes "oh, i love you... I have for ages"... "well that's just great... you couldn't have told me BEFORE! you know, when we were all alone in a beautiful house overlooking a lake with amazing views"
Then in revenge of the sith when obi-wan goes looking for anakin (near the end), he goes to padame.. shortening what he says "Hey, your secret lover has turned to the dark side, he's now evil. He just slaughtered a bunch of children... I'm going to kill him, where is he?"

Such a wonderful story, hey Smile

I'm not sure what the point of that text was but it is indeed a great story. Episode III is by far my favorite of the movies, no matter how much I liked Episode VI as a kid. Just thinking about it makes me want to watch it right now!

Laptop is here, and I'm getting all my data transferred over with no problem. It does have some overheating issues though, and Minecraft seems to be a big heat producer.

Yes, minecraft does like to do that... And running chrome with minecraft seems to lag it a lot too... That thing literally uses anywhere up to 2 gig of my ram

First visit into the server, I couldn't even finish grabbing a set of gear from the chests in the warehouse before my computer overheated and locked up. It's gonna be hell trying to play MC until I can get this overheating issue fixed.

Is there a fan in it? I know it sounds stupid, but it's easy to overlook. That was the problem with one of our family's desktops a while ago. Then again, it's a laptop...

You can also try a rest thing for it, which plugs into the USB port, which runs fans underneath, helping cooling. Only costs like 10-20 bucks

I may go for the cooling stand thing. But two more attempts at playing MC in the dwarven city have only got me as far as completing my kit of gear and walking out as far as the door to the hub cart station.

Simply take some old power supplies, remove the fans inside(one should do, two is optional, three is overkill) and hook them up to a power supply of about 9 volts DC. Better is of course to use a variable power supply that ranges from 0 to 12 volts so you can control fan speed ;
Put these next to your laptop's fan in/outlet and let them spin Smile
