So, has anyone else changed their skin yet? (Login to the Minecraft site and hit preferences.) Currently using this one: http://www.minecraft.net/skin/skin.jsp?user=Silver51 Blended two skins together from here and here in PS. Also, (on a non BT server) we tried out the canal thing as an overland fast travel option. Punched one 3 blocks wide through the side of mountain, making platforms at any caverns we found. It seemed to work okay, but we just need to a) figure a way of keeping animals out of the water and b) make it a little wider to allow people to pass in both directions.
