I've been keeping busy harvesting blue ice, if anyone was wondering. :) Sep 25, 2022 at 1:18 PM

      Prepping for the snow storm that will start tomorrow night. Should be at least a foot of snow and parts of this state might get three feet. Only time will tell. The best snow storm I ever saw was the Blizz Ard of '78. That was somewhere around 3'.

        At least a foot of snow… has me like… 😲 I am so disappointed with my winters here. Freezing cold weather and no snow to enjoy it with. Most in our area is about a couple inches of accumulation. Total rubbish!

        Wow, is that Blizz Ard still alive? I'd like to say hello, even if I will be pelted by decades-old snowballs.

      Now that 1.18 is here we need another method of travelling in the air. There is now a chunk loading delay that makes the elytra a dangerous way of travelling. We need something much slower so we can avoid the abruptly tall terrain.

        I hit something yesterday while in the air. The impact took away 4 hearts so not too bad but I did have a few near misses today. I have to circle around in the already loaded chunk in order to kill time for the next chunks to load. I guess it's the way it is going to be but something slower would be nice.

        =o I thought it was just me!! Sorry to hear about the loss Kloned. =( I thought now that I actually have 5g internet I could finally use an elytra but no.. I had to do the circling thing as well and just went down and used the good ole boat and trusty horse.. she's not that fast but better than running. =]

        I forgot about using a horse. I use a boat a lot though. Last night I was flying at night then suddenly all the star trails became vertical line, like I was in the matrix. I knew I was stuck in a block so I waited it out by frantically mining with my pick. When everything stopped I found myself inside a villagers house with little damage.

        Yes, look at the map just South of the South spawn. Someone made a sign. It's a great idea.

      The caves are now too big. There is so much to explore. I really need Dumbledore's wand to cast a ball of light way off into the distant reaches of the cave to illuminate what mobs lurk in there because simple torches just don't work.

        Oh, it is. I mixed up some night vision potions and the sight is incredible. The cave is a dripstone biome. There has to be a few DC's of dripstone and dripstone blocks. I took a screen shot so I'd like to post it on the forum.

      Having fun these days irl reglazing the kitchen storm windows. With night time temp below 20 the kitchen is really cold even with all the cookin I've been doing. In game, in and out of the Wasteland gathering resources. Seeing if anyone missed any shipwrecks.

      So, I finally figured out I could buy a MC redeem code from Walmart so I can set up an alt. Placed the order and waited for the email with the code. Got an email alright, my order was cancelled by the Walmart fraud detection dept. What!? I'm legit. It's just not meant to be.

        That’s sorta hilarious. Just buy a physical copy of the card at an actual Walmart store.

        They don't offer them in the stores around here. Only a digital download from their site. Besides, the way this adventure has been unfolding I'd say the next step is to be arrested in Walmart for attempting to buy MC.

      I tried multiple times yesterday to buy another Minecraft account from the minecraft.net site but kept getting an unknown payment error. I was using a credit card. Has anyone else run into this problem that could advise me on a fix. The credit card is good, so rule that out.

        A couple Google searches came up with that as being the issue and the suggested fix is to purchase a reedem code from a store based in the US. I have to keep searching since most of the common sites are currently sold out.

        I had that problem with one of my accounts a while back, I can’t quite remember the details but I think I may have been using a gift card or smth and that may have been part of the problem that you can’t buy with cards with like prepaid balances? May be similar with a credit card, are you able to use a debit card by chance? Or yeah as said above, redeemable codes are always my go to for the rest of my alts

        I tried a debit card yesterday and got the same error. I'm going to wait now until I can get a redeem code from a store. Tbh the error kind of defused my fun, spur of the moment purchase of a couple of alts.

      Still having fun roaming the Wasteland, way out by the border where not many have gathered resources. The barrier has a hypnotic effect. It draws me towards it and teases me with the untouched terrain it keeps safe on the other side.

      Been flying around the Waste on 3. There are actually some nice areas with floating chunks of mountain terrain where you can fly through and underneath them. Been imagining I'm in a flying suit but of course I do crash at high speed so luckily it's not real life.

      Just read on BBC site an article about the fossilized remains of the biggest bug to have ever lived. Imagine watching a 110 lb, 8 ft long millipede walking through your house?

    I'm a farmer in real life. I used to be the Sr. Diagnostic Software Engineer for an image processing company.

    I took the picture below in 2020. People love sunflowers so I grow as many as possible each year to sell. The flowers in the field have been used many times over the years as a background for someone's photo. That's what it's all about, really. Doing something I enjoy to try to brighten the lives of others.

    That's the upper part of my field and my house in the background.
