    The satellite is stationary. It uses multi-beam technology so different areas are directed to different NOCs on the ground. My uplink NOC is in Winnipeg, Canada.

    That's pretty lame. Winnipeg is closer to the green zone than the red zone. You'd think red would be in Chicago or close to it. Still, newtekie1 is probably closer to Winnipeg than Easy Rhino, hence the better connection. I'm sure 100ms or so would make a big difference when the latency is already astronomical due to the satellite connection.

    I wish I could use my brain for more then art, making babies and trolling. Sometime when you guys talk I feel like a 6 year old in a MIT alumni meeting.

    I was tested at 146 IQ when I was in school but all I do with it is fap.

    Yeah it was. They said I was borderline genius but "eccentric" about structure. This pretty much sums me up....

    1.5 is coming out next week.

    Problem is, the ice TPU is going to disappear when it does. I really need to get on preventing that this week. Problem is, keeping the straight edges it has now is going to require a ton of underwater glowstone (or Jack o Lanterns) positioned with extreme accuracy. I got to come up with a plan and quick.

    It's a really fun game! If you want to know how the game works, watch this video. The guy plays a bit defensively but it's pretty easy to understand.
