    It doesn't matter, I still freak out, I don't let go of the shift key for nothing either! My pinky starts hurting because I'm pressing it so hard.:laugh:

    So the game is problematic for Acrophobic and Claustrophobic people.
    We may have to start a self-help group. :roll:

    I'm pulling a Windows update so trying to use the server is out of the question at the moment.
    I'll give it a try when download is done.

    Oh sure.
    First you guys start bitching when you find out my TPU logo is going to need something like 11,000 red wools (even going so far as calling it impossible) and now you're disparaging my fine little house. :shadedshu

    May a thousand creepers infest your underwear. :D

    (Crap ... minecraft.net server down)

    It would be a cool idea to keep a cartograph of the map in the OP.
    This idea came to me because I wanted to know the closest place to the spawn point that I could build a cart-train to, but minecraft.net is down.

    Well, since no one can connect to the server I guess it is a good time to grab me one of these. :D

    @Newt : Is there a way around this problem? I saw some comments about running the server in offline mode with temp maps that would still allow connections without mc.net being available.

    Yes, I've switched to offline mode temporarly, but I will switch back to online mode once minecraft.net is working again.

    Also, I did a backup of the world right before doing this, because this makes the server extremely insecure. So just be warned that any work you do might be erased if I decide to restore the backup because of any issues.

    What makes it insecure? Since it's basically an unknown server (private)? Does whitelisting still work in this mode?
    Any reason not to run this way all the time so we do not have to worry about the mc.net servers?

    To explain it, I would essentially give instructions on how to exploit the insecurities. I'll PM you.

    I think it is 50x50 ... see post #94

    mc.net is back up.
    Restore the backup because I trashed Caboose's house for saying mine was the worst. (just kidding).

    Kreij feel free to live in side the TPU when we are done with it. Newtekie made me a deal that if I got 500 glass, he would give me 900 red wool. Help me out with that and we can get the TPU done super fast!

    Or put some of the millions they've made off the game into getting hardware that can handle the databases and load, and software programmers that can actually optimize said databases.

    Instead Notch has taken 2 week long vacations in the last 3 weeks.:shadedshu
