      I'm at my outpost on 3. Haven't been here for a while and of course I forgot to bring a few items. It would be nice to be able to tp back and forth instead of flying.

        You could empty your enderchest, set a bed, walk back, grab your stuff, enderchest it, die. And you’ll res pawn at the base. It’s better than nothing.

      Is it possible to get a Turkey Slicer drop from a Super Turkey using diff level 5? I've kill quite a few now and was just wondering if I was doing it right.

        Yeah you can get the drop at 5. That’s what kill them at and have gotten the slicer. I’m using a sword with looting 3 on it.

      The router upgrade fixed my serious lag issues. From 2340 ms to 32 ms ping! All is right in the Minecraft world again.

        Must be nice! Cant wait til I can experience a connection that good. It’s pretty upsetting getting disconnected constantly.

        Have you done a speed test to see what your up and download speeds are? Mine were pretty good, 118 Mbps download. Yet I was experiencing lag so it had to be the router, and that smart tv.

      I just ordered a router to replace the old one I am using. I think that is causing my network problems.

        Yep, usually default carrier provide a terrible router for temporary use and sometimes, it can become a trouble maker.

        It is the original router. The modem was upgraded a couple years ago but not the router. It's arriving today so hopefully I'll have a good connection for getting in game tonight.

        Nice name change BTW. 🙂

      The ground was coated with a little snow last night, as if Blizz Ard passed through. It's enough to keep me in though. Gave me a chance to package up the Quince candy I made a few weeks ago, as well as start a batch of cheese and make a Banana bread. Sitting by the fire now. 🙂

      I had an interesting time yesterday laying down 9 short hopper minecart rails. I wanted them side by side to gather drops at my res but they kept auto connecting in random pattern as if some alien civilization was trying to spell out a msg to me.

        Someone in game gave me the tip to lay out the first track longer tham the 2nd one then break off the extra length of the 1st. That worked for 2 tracks but the 3rd messed them all again. I figured out but shear dumb luck that a powered rail at the ends of the track prevents them from auto connecting. 🙂

        tracks have a preference for how to link up, either north-south or east-west. It can be really annoying sometimes. You can also use a redstone signal as a last resort to change the direction of a turn.

      My in game time is under attack by the bandwidth devouring smart tv we recently installed. Typically my wife would watch over the air programs with our "dumb" tv. Now she is watching back-to-back shows she missed all those years. Might be time to buy a 2nd internet feed.

      I updated my avatar a couple days ago. I forgot to add a comment at that time. It's our youngest dog Fern. We were going for a ride and she loves to imitate the way we sit.

      Was working on stacking firewood. It's cool out and now I'm thinking of hot chocolate.

      I installed the Pojav Launcher on my phone yesterday. It works great. I can now jump onto EMC instead of playing a mindless Balistic game to pass the time. The only problem is, even with reading glasses, the screen is too small.

        I did notice the high heat from the back of the phone so I take a lot of breaks and I used it while charging to maintain a good charge.
        It has taken a bit of practice to adjust to the "touch" control so I've limited my use to sorting inventory and collecting resources but I don't feel confident enough to use an elytra.

        Note to people that are reading this status. While Pojav Launcher is not disallowed, I do not recommend it... And would prefer it not be recommended to people here on EMC.
        Again, you can use it for now. But its support is not guaranteed. :)

        Okay, I had given that some thought too, of it not being recommended. I was giving it up anyway since my eyesight isn't what it used to be and the small screen makes it worse.

      Thank you to the player that upgraded me to Iron. I feel like part of the club now. 🙂

      Started harvesting Persimmon today. Tons of fruit this year!

      Away, I'd rather sail away, Like a swan that's here and gone. What a voice! Heard it on the local radio today.

      It's a cool hot cocoa day. I used every kind of cocoa powder I could find in the cabinet. Added mini marshmallows on top ans made a cup for my wife. 😉

      Microsoft put their foot down on my yesterday. My Windows 10 PC went through a "Forced update". I had no options other than "Restart Now". I've never seen a forced update. It took 3 hours to complete. Through out it the screen was a danger red color. Odd.

        Yeah, the entire Windows system lacks connectivity. As if all of the departments involved with development don't talk out their ideas so it has a better experience for the user.

        I enjoy using tech and especially developing apps but I refuse to talk to a device. If Data, from Star Trek, was around I would make an exception. There is already too much noise in the environment. I don't want to hear a family member talking to a computer.

        At one point, Microsoft added forced updates to their Surface tablet, which you could only postpone for 15-minutes (!). This was incredibly inconsiderate of them. As much as possible I move away from MS products.

      Adding another 1700+ DCs to my main storage area. I'm using Amethyst block for the ceiling with Sea Lantern lighting. The Amethyst makes the ceiling look like a star filled sky, very nice block to work with. Maybe shroom lights would look better, I give it a try.

      Started on orgaizing my main storage system. Having dozens of shulkers is nice but sorting them out takes a ton of time.

    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.
