Minecraft!

Well, still having internet problems, going to have to call the ISP and deal with the dreaded customer service. UGH. In the mean time, using the cell phone as a mobile hotspot for short periods of time. It's a terribly slow connection, so I'm doing about all I can do.

So, while I wait for the internet to get fixed, I am going to play a (un)healthy amount of Minecraft. I haven't played much recently with all the blogging and astronomy events, but it is an incredibly fun and addictive game. It's a nearly unlimited 3D world where you mine resources and build whatever you can imagine by day, and survive an onslaught of monsters at night.

The game has been likened to LEGOs, with all the building and doing whatever you're capable of imagining. Some people even make complex things using a specialized red dust that can provide power. Useful for making traps that help you survive the night.

So, in keeping with the 'stuff I like' tradition, a post type that I haven't made in awhile, I like Minecraft. And it's going to be a good way to eat up time until my internet gets fixed. Also, I'll probably work on more imaging stuff and will have some decent pictures on Sunday.

P.S. I am also kind of excited, I have been nominated for the Board of Directors in the Harford County Astronomical Society. So, if I win the election I get that awesome distinction.

I've dabbled in Minecraft, but have made sure not to let it become addictive.

Sorry about the interwebs. Tough break, man.

And that is awesome about the BoD. Hoping you get it. It's a distinguished honor. Use your power wisely.

Tread softly my friend, I pretty near lost my entire life and relationships to that horrifically addictive game. I have heard from several clients who are stateside that Comcast has been having a lot of difficulty with its DNS servers but are trying to hide the fact. Hopefully this isn't the case with you, because thus far there is no ETA on a fix...

I've only seen screen caps and heard of how addictive the game is.
I think I will hold on to whatever life I have left and stay away!
