    I know, was being slightly sarcastic :)

    In SSP I only build what I have mined, at the moment I'm working on minecart boosters and its a real PIA (ore wise and making stations automated with carts on demand etc.).

    People have been playing and getting excited about Minecraft on our guild room to the extent I haven't really liked staying there. Frankly if you really want to bore someone to death, make sure he doesn't like/play Minecraft and then talk about it 24/7 for a week or two.

    Nothing wrong with the article and I can kinda see the point, but just not my slice of cheesecake.

    The problem with this article is that it's very cute but it does presuppose you have more than the vaguest idea what minecraft is. Which I don't.

    What the hell is minecraft?

    T_Coz? I've seen some crazy spellings of my nick in the past, but that takes the cheescake.

    Nice article though.

    Great article Joe, really like the approach to it. It's nice to see the hard work of all the guys on the server immortalised like this!

    Can someone explain to me what's so special about minecraft. It looks like a nintendo game (the 8bit version) and what I am reading about it, your goal is to dig in the earth and build structures.

    Did you guys miss out on LEGO and playing with sand when you where young?

    I really do not get it.

    It's very hard to explain. Try the demo.

    no exactly the opposite, we all played with lego when we were young and still want to


    Lego with zombies is a pretty good way to describe it
