      I saw that auction for the potions a wee bit too late. Mind if I buy a few DCs off of you?

        Not my choice to make, I only picked 'm up for the real winner, Merek_Shadower. You're going to have to ask him.

      Project for this weekend: building a mega-smelter (think: 32+ parallel furnaces) :)

        Good luck! I need a meg-smelter but too much time needs to be put in, then it's very complex.

        why not 256 furnaces?

        @Melon: too much overflow. My creative tests showed that with so many incoming items the hoppers are going to have a hard time keeping up and will eventually act as overflow buffers. Considering the hopper tweaks on EMC... Besides: smelting 1 item per second should be more than enough :)

        My "problem" is that I usually always have something to do which kinda distracts me at times. Oh well. Wait, did I say something about an exclusive * SMP2 event coming somewhere this weekend? Naaah! :P

        lol, I upgraded my worlds to 1.12.1 before I realized that the recipe book didn't work on EMC with that. So I kept switching between versions ;) But no more!

        there's more to it :)

        Of course 1024 is a geek number, but it's also a parody on "640kb should be enough for everybody" :P An allegedly outing by one Bill Gates. In the good ole days of 640kb RAM, QEMM, turbo switches and extended memory.

      "Nothing wrong with the old laucher." (10 minutes ago) are you talking about the launcher before it became "fancy"? If so, how do I also use it? :D

        Oh of course, if I could go back to that one, it'd be even better. :D

        I generally don't like the new and "improved" looks of basically anything today, so yeah. And it's also kinda annoying to switch accounts a lot with this newest one.

    I suppose I fall into the 'geek' category. I'm an IT professional and I basically learned most of it myself. "In my days..." we didn't have much I(C)T studies; perhaps apart from learning how WP5.1, Lotus 1-2-3 and dBase worked.

    Messed with computers most of my life (started with a C64, BBC Electron and later expanded to 286, 486 and the more modern machines) and often went way beyond merely "starting programs".

    Self employed, own (small!) IT company, which often results in pretty drastic changes in playtime. Sometimes I have the luxury to combine work with play (telephone support (standby) for overseas customers for example) while in other weeks I won't be able to play at all.

    Main hobbies: Scooter, synthesizers / sound design, Minecraft, watching a movie with my gf on a Saturday evening (<3), reading.

    About Minecraft:

    My girlfriend introduced me to Minecraft in March 2014, and I was quickly hooked. Especially the redstone parts managed to grasp my interest, even though I had little clue on how to use them.

    3 days after discovering Minecraft I discovered the multiplayer communities, found a server I took a liking to and it was a very nice and educational experience. Eventually I lost my motivation; partly because of the way the server was run but mostly because of an upcoming map wipe. After playing and working very hard for 6 - 7 months only to realize that it would all go kab00m was too demotivating for me.

    "If I need to start all over anyway, then why not look around for other alternatives?".

    This is where I found the Empire. December 2014.

    I've been online for nearly 2 months at the time of writing, and I've now reached a point where there's no more doubt in my mind anymore: this is where I belong.

    Update:

    It seems that my opinion is shared by "the powers that be", because on March 2015 I got invited to become part of the EMC Contribution Team, an invitation I obviously took on both handed. I'm very excited, mostly because I take joy in the fact that people recognized and appreciated the things I've done so far; and have now put an official "label of approval" onto it.

    Update:

    As of October 2016 I quit said contribution team because I didn't feel motivated enough anymore. EMC is all about having fun for me, and as soon as something stops being fun then that's where I'll have to draw the line. For me a title becomes meaningless if you can no longer enjoy it, and I'm not really the kind of guy who needs to have status symbols. I'd rather let my actions speak for themselves :)

    Update (17th November 2016):

    It appears there are some wild rumors going about regarding me leaving the contrib. team, and I feel I need to squash those because after my last somewhat critical public remarks (critical is -not- the same as negative!) some people apparently thought that I somewhat became anti-EMC or something.

    Yes, I might sometimes criticize the staff and/or their actions. But that does not mean that I suddenly started hating on them or something. That's plain out ridiculous.

    Fun fact: Aikar criticized the staff in his days with regards to town vs. survival, and look where we are now. So why would my (few!) moments of criticism suddenly have to turn out bad?

    Empire Minecraft is the best Minecraft server there is for me.
