First of all all, let me start by saying that I’m referring to YouTube as a company and not the community.  The community has problems, of course, but that is a topic for another day. Ok, so what are my problems with YouTube?  Well, the problems with YouTube the company are many.  Their communication is  [ Read More ]

I’m starting a new mega project…. so far I’m tentatively calling it “Utopia”, but I may change the name at some point.  I’ve gotten a start with clearing out the land, and now I’m working on filling in the outline with glass.

Ah, yes, in response to requests that I explore  some more aspects of Redpower I have decided to try my hand at some power, blutricity.  It’s a tad odd, but I figure it out in the end.

Jens of Mojang has anounced that they are working on a new map format they have code-named “Anvil”.  The purpose of this format, as far as I can tell, is to provide a new platform for modding.

Just some more Team Fortress 2 Play.I’m having fun, so I’ll keep doing these occasionally. they are fairly quick to record, so it would be easy to spit out dozens of these… but the downside is that less people are interested in these videos then are interested in my minecraft stuff (about 50%) and I  [ Read More ]

In this episode I build the industrial-craft terraformer.   First I need to tie the power requirements into my existing system.  Easy enough, but it eats up much of my diamond supply. After that I decide it would be a good idea to be able to turn this sucker on and off.  I use the  [ Read More ]

In this episode of my continuing series Jury’s Junkyard I show a method to automatically farm melons and pumpkins using redpower blockbreakers.  I use a repower timer to pulse the blockbreakers every 30 seconds.  I could likely get away with a much longer time then that, but I figure 30 seconds won’t hurt my lag  [ Read More ]

WhatisatthebottomoftheNether

About a year ago I posted a video called “Minecraft – What is at the bottom of the Nether?” I made the video because someone in the Minecraft forums asked this very question.  You need to remember, at the time the nether was fairly new. Only a few months old, if memory serve, so there  [ Read More ]
