That moment when you complete a big redstone project only to find it's not quite working as it's meant to https://imgur.com/a/ZN4eSzC Jan 7, 2019

        I found a few mistakes and corrected them but still have the same issue. It's a triple piston extender 2 sticky and 1 normal. The middle sticky and front nor pistons are not retracting. Also logs not getting pushed forward.

      So we said goodbye to my car today, 14 years old and showing it's age in the clutch and gear department. I think winter hit it hard last year and heading back into the cold weather it just became one winter too many.

        I had already decided on another car which suddenly became that more urgent when after driving to the car showroom, I was informed that my car had leaked petrol along the road and a puddle had now formed under the car in the car park. I would like to say that they gave me £100 part exchange but I think it was a sympathy gesture and agreed to dispose of it for me. New car on its way :D

      There are times when I look at my computer screen and think, look at the clarity of that screen, generally that's just after I have cleaned it :D

      For the older players, do you ever get strange looks from ppl when you say you play Minecraft, those are the ones who will never understand :)

        Indeed they don't. I still have my Sega Genesis and games...I used to work for Sega and would get almost all my games for free.

      Added an additional monitor 21.5", it came with 3 different cables other than the one I needed, [HDMI] typical. I also bought a new mouse, but not so keep on it. I will give some time to see if it grows on me, no buttons though for clicking forward or back on web pages.

        Multiple monitors is the most amazing thing ever. :D Not sure if you knew, but ALT + [left/right arrow] makes (almost) every page in programs go one backwards or forwards, I use it all the time. :)

        I liked my old mouse as it has 2 buttons on the side which is a simple thumb click, I got used to the lazy way :D

        I bought my SSD 4.5 years ago for 90 euros (±80 pounds)... it has a capacity of 120 GB... Prices have gone down so much, it's insane. Also definitely awesome though. :)

        I also thought before that it would be awesome to be able to buy real things with rupees, but that is indeed sadly not the case. :P

        Regardless of what you get, I hope it all works out for ya Silken! I’m currently using a couple Samsung SSD’s - External/Internal. Those were more expensive than what I could of bought, but once you find out what all you can use, it boils down to price, quality, experience, and review ratings.

      Like the Dwarves of Moria (Lord of the Rings) I dug too deep and now I have 1 week to re-do my presentation. I suppose even the Azgard from SG1 found it difficult to dumb things down

        I have been working on a presentation for the past 3 weeks to be given next week and found out today that I went into it to deeply. Basically master student level so I have to now dumb it down because it's not what they want and yet it fits the brief. Crazy uni questions not made clear

      I once thought that having 250 players logged on in-game was poor but these days I see numbers of 16 and 27 or a number around that area.

        IT's more to do with the fact Minecraft is dying, less people interested in playing MC = less people joining servers. People always rotate out, but if there's less new people replacing them, then activity slows.

        Idea: how about sort of grouping the chats and TAB player list of smp1-3, 4-6, and 7-9 together? This creates "fuller" servers, and groups more players together so there is more possibility to chat. :)

        I do however notice it myself too, the forums as well are sometimes awfully quiet. I know they were quiet a year and two years ago too, but I feel like it's noticeably quieter again, unfortunately.

        Eh, activity will decrease in almost any online community after a certain point, I think. And it doesn't need to take a decade before that happens. Especially when it's been this high. EMC was really quite a big phenomenon. So was Minecraft.

        Welcome to my world. But that’s pretty odd for a mall, perhaps you should consider price adjustments?
