      Wait what??? "empireminecraft.com is blocked in your country" http://puu.sh/DiUil/edccd2eb38.png EDIT: ah, reconnecting my ethernet cable to my computer fixed it. :D (DNS related issue, probably)

        Hey Tah! :D I haven't seen you in a while! I'm pretty sure you already said thanks somewhere, so, no worries - I'm happy I could help you with it. :) Thanks as well for the recent funds, I can really use those! :D (I literally only had 25k :P) Hopefully you're doing great! :) Bis bald ;)

      That moment when some difficult redstone you've been working on for 2+ hours suddenly disappears when you re-enter the chunks... I hate everything right now.

        I know what caused it too: I accidentally logged into the world I was working in with my alt. From that point on, it stopped saving the chunks... -_- it was really weird, I went into a minecart away from where I was working, and immediately back, and then everything was gone... Quite odd.

        So, if you ever accidentally log into a world you're already working on in another client, leave the world on both clients immediately, and you should be fine. :)

      You might think that Minecraft doesn't use that much resources... I have an i7 3770k at 4.4 GHz, and it's literally using ALL of the processor as I have 5 Minecrafts opened... lolwat http://puu.sh/DeAla/4d8434f238.png

      Having a glass of water on your desk when electronics are around is completely fine. Do, however, remove it when you're going to mess around with cables, as cables can be stronger and behave differently from how you anticipated them to be. I learned this the hard way. ... ._.

        water got all over the keyboard, and inside a bit too (it's an old laptop and has small gaps so water can conveniently leak inside :P). I immediately turned it off and opened it up entirely (rear panel off, entire keyboard off). Water didn't come in that much luckily. I dried off every drop of water I could see, fortunately nothing visibly got on electronical stuff.

        The only thing still: visible water was literally inside the keyboard. I've set the keyboard on its side so it can droop out onto a towel, and did the came with the mouse buttons. They've been on their side for like 7 hours now, so I think that I'm going to put everything back together now to see if the keyboard still works...

        Yes, sorry, I was going to pay & pickup today after I started up my computer, but I did some oopsies and had to spend a while fixing that, so I haven't been online yet. :P (originally I was going to do it yesterday, actually, but then I unexpectedly spent the entire evening helping somone) I kept the thread in my unread threads list so I wouldn't forget about it. :)

      Wha? Life TEXP: 0. Month TEXP: 10. Even disregarding the 180,000 disappeared XP, that does not make any sense whatsoever... :P EDIT: Ah, it works again. :P

        That happened to me before. I was confused why it cleared all my hard earned xp. Then the next time I logged in it was back.

      I finally finished a massive schoolproject that I had been working on (with way too many breaks) for half a year. After much "long term stress" (I don't normally get stressed ever) and difficulty starting, it's finally done and can finally leave my mind! :D So happy right now! :D

        Here they also get good attendance, because people from the 5th year HAVE to go, and parents are invited too. Friends in the same year can't come generally, because they obviously have to do their own presentations at the same time. :P

        Yup, I'm still going to be doing my best for the presentation, because it just feels the right thing to do (and it isn't that difficult to be honest, as you already have most of the text available anyways :P - I'm just not that good at presenting).

        I can be good, but tend to get nervous. One tip: don't obscure the digiboard with your body. :$ I only found out nobody had been able to read the slides at 70% of my presentation.

      I don't understand how people can mix up "apart" and "a part"... One is an adverb/adjective while the other is just an article with a noun, and they have completely different definitions...

        But they sound pretty much the same. Like "they're", "their" and "there".

        They sound less similar than your example, though, and they're (:rolleyes:) definitions are also easier to keep apart (:D) (to be honest, I also don't entirely understand how "they're", "their", and "there" are confused so much, but still. :P).
