I'm sick of the internet censorship bills. So let's geek out about other stuff instead!

Anybody see the latest My Little Pony episode? Holy hell... they actually had "derpy hooves" in the episode and Rainbowdash herself SAYS her name is "Derpy." Even if you don't like MLP:FiM, the fact that the creators of the series went so far as to take a fan created character (fan created in the sense that fans named a unintended background character mistake), use her fan given name (which happened to be meme-tastic) and not only acknowledge it but to actually PUT it into an episode like that... wow. I have a feeling this is kinda the next step of fanbase and media building. And it's awesome! So yeah... "Derpy Hooves" is 100% legit now.

Been watching a lot of minecraft tutorials on mechanisms and machines. Some of them are absolutely insane, and some of them are actually practical. I would very much like to build a "stronghold" in my world which is completely enemy defense proof. Automatic drawbridges, secret compartments, mob crushers, tactical defense, automatic harvesting machines... the works. Will I ever be able to accomplish it? I dunno...

Speaking of, I tried to create my own server only to discover that my wi-fi router/airport system is incompatible to do so. Go figured, right? Wonder if this means I can't join other people's servers too...? Oh Notch... why is the multiplayer so complicated?

Recommendation for your stronghold: Make it rebuild itself if damaged. :)

I was kinda shocked myself when I first heard her speak. YAY DERPY!! :D

As for minecraft, I'll have to wait until I get an account.

yes I did see that episode, it is one of the few times the show actually made me, admittedly, squeal like a girl.

Yeah some of the stuff people do in mine craft is crazy, I mean when I first did a few things with red stone I thought I was pretty good but them I looked up more complex stuff and it was like. "Holly cow". I even saw a video of where some one made a like, 3D printer, it was like 9x9 if I remember correctly. Fully programmable, you could make pretty much anything you could think of, you just have to change the arrangement of switches every time you wanted to make a change.

It's more likely a port forwarding issue with your router and/or modem. It's a common problem with hosting any sort of server in general, not just Minecraft ones. And if that's the case, then no, it shouldn't effect you joing other servers.

[link] Really good and extensive guides on how to port forward most brand name and model routers/modems.

It's awesome and all that Derpy has gotten a spotlight in the latest episode, but it worries me slightly. I don't mind creators listening to their fans, so long as they don't take every suggestion just to please them.
