Lemme tell y'all something - the people who say having the flu (covid or otherwise) is basically like getting hit by a truck. They're *not* exaggerating. I think the corner was finally turned last night so here's hoping I can exit quarantine Friday. Nov 16, 2022

        When I had COVID in April, even though I’d been double-vaccinated for eight months at that point and was 21 years of age, it had me sleeping 15 hours a day and there were a few days where I physically couldn’t get out of bed. I can only imagine how awful it feels for people in at-risk groups.

        I had the flu in March, and I couldn’t be up for more than a few hours or I would be freezing cold (in room temperature). I even got the flu shot months before. It was quite the experience.

      So just a heads up - I'm sick. Likely COVID based on rapid test but need to confirm with a PCR. Response times to PM and anything involving me will be slow for at least a week so I ask for some patience on my end. (See comments for more info).

      This MLS final is insane. I'm Union all the way but at this point, I don't care who wins. Greatest final in history.

      Taxes (mostly) done. Got two paper filings to send out tomorrow and I'm done until January. Thinking a coffee run is in order once completed.

      Fun fact: You may be able to apply for online only library cards for other library systems in your state. Check the major cities and see if they allow state residents to apply for free; it's a good way to get access to larger systems without actually living near one.

        Advantages of having a state-wide library system: I don't have to worry about this. ;)

        Even if that's true waffle, I'd still totally sign up for the City of New York's system if I was in K-12 - they're letting anyone in that range get a card for free and you know their online offerings are bonkers.

        Apply for a library for free? That sounds great and entirely un-American.

      Couple weeks of absolute craziness. Should be slowing down a bit after tomorrow morning (still busy but weekends/evenings are far more open).
    8. ElfinPineapple
      I'm back - took a two week trip to the east coast. Should have PMs caught up in the next day or so.

      Last IRL status update for a couple weeks. I will be online this evening to catch up on unanswered PMs and outstanding SS services. Might lurk on discord a bit too while doing that. We'll see on that end. :)
    10. ElfinPineapple
      I'm back. 9 days later. Backlogs abound both on and off EMC, so if anything is still outstanding I'll get to it within the next day or two #MovingNeverGoesToPlan
    11. ElfinPineapple
      Update: Due to circumstances beyond my control it will likely be this weekend before I'm back on EMC. If you sent me PMs, I'll get back to them this weekend if internet allows. If you can't wait, please include other staff. Thanks!

      The Minecraft community lost one of its greatest gems today. His life is a reminder that no matter what, live for today. Live for the life you want. Live for the life you love. Live for the life you dream. For seeing tomorrow is not guaranteed. Rest in peace Technoblade.

      You can always count on HP to take a simple concept and make doing it obscenely complicated for no good reason.

      Taking a long weekend Friday - Monday, so will not be available at all on here. If y'all send me a PM that needs staff attention please make sure to add other staff. Otherwise it likely will not be seen until Tuesday. Enjoy the weekend and best of luck to those taking finals!

      Update part 4: Long road ahead as files need to be moved and some programs/games need to be downloaded (including Minecraft) but the new computer is online and functioning. :)

        Hmmm...that's not very helpful for my end then lol. I've got OneDrive through my microsoft subscription - that any good or are there better options?
        Mar 20, 2022
      5. 607
        Depends on whether you'd like to keep the files in your own home or outsource them. ;) (although maybe even if you go for cloud options there are better options, OneDrive seems popular, though)

      Update on computer issues: I should be up and running again by sometime tomorrow at the absolute latest if things goes to plan. :)

      Will not be in game for a few days potentially due to technical issues on my desktop. I am still accessible by forums if anyone needs to contact me.

      I'm not sure how this works, here goes: I am reaching out to get some help. I attempted to migrate my account to Microsoft as directed, but something went wrong and I can't get Mr Muchly back. I have a new player, James_Royce to take his place. How can James get access and build rights to his old self? both in town and in the frontier? Just want to keep playing and building. Thanks for your help.

      Don't completely trust spell/grammar checks. They're good, but they're not that good.....

        I hadn't heard of it until you mentioned it (also can't find it anywhere), so I have no opinion right now?

    FAQ regarding me.

    You can find more info about me by clicking here. This list is just for questions I'm frequently asked on server.

    Can I get your head?

    My head giveaway policy is currently under review. Please check back at a later date for information regarding how I will be handling head giveaways. In the interim you may be able to find it for sale by checking the auction/for sale subforums or by asking around on server.

    Can I get your signature?

    If you want a personalized signature, please mail me a empty book and quill on server and I will get to it as soon as I can. One per account please!

    Are you on Discord?

    I am and can be found on the EMC Discord under the Senior Staff. Note that online availability on discord for me does not necessarily mean I am available to answer questions in a staff capacity since I'm in multiple other discords and often have the app running in the background.

    Please be aware that I and other EMC staff do not handle EMC staff related matters on Discord unless there's rule violations ongoing in the EMC discord. The best way to discuss non-Discord related questions with me is to contact me on the forums at pm.emc.gs/ElfinPineapple or pmss.emc.gs.

    Are you on Steam/other gaming/social media service?

    Likely, though depending on the service in question. To protect my privacy though I do not share this information publicly or privately.

    What is your take on (insert political/social issue here)?

    While happy to discuss these matters over private messages only, any opinions on these subjects are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the EMC Staff/ownership.

    I have been and will remain politics neutral in a staff capacity because I believe that the community is greatest when we focus on what unites us as humanity, not on what divides us. So long as EMC rules are followed and the views do not violate US laws and regulations, I will show impartiality towards all political and social perspectives in the performance of my duties.
