I remember seeing a thing about a very rich man with so much social insecurity that he didn't even want to see his own servants. For example, he had a lift installed in the middle of his second floor (where he lived) dining room so that the servants could make the table on the first floor and then just raise it up to him when ready. That way he didn't have to interact with any of them.

long socks are the bee's knees, as it were. I too indulge in them.

The way they hug soft thighs and draw the eyes to hips like the rolling hills of back home. Hot damn. I'm not sure if that's to how you were referring to your long socks, but that's what I like about 'em. That's probably enough about that, though.

Bluh. I've got a meeting tomorrow with the rest of the rejects, I need to get my ass out to buy breakfast foods this evening, there's a trans chick who seems to have caught feelings for me and I need to handle the new attention in a responsible way, I've completely forgotten whatever homework I had from my shrink, my parents are trying to get an answer out of me for flight dates for me to come visit them come March/April, and of course it's tax season which means I need to figure out how to do that and then do it.

But first, lemme lie in bed all day feeling sorry for myself.

Man, anything thigh-high and up really tickles my goats. Especially striped.

As for a minor sad to stay partly ontopic, the final piece of a new computer build got lost in the snowstorms I experienced last week. It was the case. My new one should be in today, but I'm still sitting on my old PC and the delay has taken away any motivation to do anything on it.

I don't know what I did, but I broke Unity. It crashes whenever I try to test a scene after editing it. Until Unity either gets back to me with a fix, or I fix the problem on my own, or it mysteriously resolves itself, I can't work on my project. Arrgh.

What a shitty start to the day - literally.
Was having stomach pains since I woke up (late because I forgot to set an extra alarm), at first I figured they'd go away soon enough but now I'm pooping at work shortly after finally getting here. RIP.

So, after talking with her little sisters a bit, the GF has decided to revive the old Minecraft server for them to play around on.

Now, it's been a really long time since I last played Minecraft, and part of that had to do with some horrid lag/bugs on my old machine (in addition to the sound being lost, so no creeper warning). Now I've got a brand new machine (which is already full of dog hair, but that was inevitable) with better hardware, and there's been a bunch of new stuff added to the game! At first I thought "Cool! This'll be fun! Can flex the ol' creative lobes a bit and explore the new content, and actually have something I can do together with the GF!".

But then came the mods. Just a whole fat pack of them, she doesn't even know what all is in there, just that it's got the cars and furniture and modern architectural stuff that's needed for the cute little upper-class suburbia their projects always seem to turn into, as well as a few quality of life mods that make sure you never need to actually survive in survival.

Naturally, not all of these mods are entirely up to date. As such; she's installed an older version of Minecraft on the server, without all the new content, so that the mods will work.


Ah well.

AFAIK 99% of mods don't work on the most recent version, as they all need Forge, which hasn't been updated to it and probably won't be iirc. Something about inclement weather I gather mojang redoing a bunch of stuff under the hood

I used to play Minecraft, and it seems that the modding community has some "preferred" versions, ones that get significantly more focus than others. Off the top of my head, they include 1.5.2, 1.6.4, 1.7.2, 1.8.X. and 1.12.2.

Yeah, it's just... Well, it's clear that she likes to play a significantly different Minecraft from the one I like. I enjoy solving problems in a creative fashion, which is why I built the Chickenator 2000 to provide us with food and feathers. Okay, so maybe it went on to destroy the world a little bit, but that was just a new problem to solve.

And it's not like I don't do purely creative stuff, I do... It's just that my art installations don't tend to go over very well with the city planning commission. The Spongebob monument got to stick around for a good while because her sisters thought it was pretty great, but after it mysteriously vanished the mountain it used to sit on top of got bulldozed to make way for some more shops and houses.

When the cars and the tarmac streets came, I really didn't have much left to do with the emerging world. I didn't get approval to zone a slums district, and I didn't want to build early 00's mansions, so I eventually just left.


I thought that we might get a fresh start this time around, but it looks like there are other priorities.  She didn't add the jetpacks mod though, for some reason.

That sounds like it could be a fun problem. You can't have a post-apocalyptic survival game without a city that got ruined. Can you open some sort of portal downtown? You just need to build yourself a secret super-villain lair somewhere while they build the city, then unleash whatever horrors the game allows you to.

Edit: you may want to wait until they're done first, so as not to be a total dick.

Ahaha, no. If I went around wrecking their stuff or putting up portals/castles/whatever that didn't fit the theme, I'd probably only accomplish getting a server checkpoint reset and revocation of privileges for yours truly.

Pretty much the most evil thing I've done was to set up an infinite loop music block circuit underground near where they were expanding the city, and that ended up getting wiped out by the terrain flattening tool she'd modded in. Anything more destructive than that and I'll be stepping on toes in a big way. Big toes.


The horrors sorta work though, as everyone generally ends up in creative and can't be targeted anyways. But she still doesn't like me populating the houses with zombies or whatnot. I tried making a mid-air ghast spawner that was concealed by sky-blue blocks underneath; but it never really worked, and eventually that space was needed for the third storey (Chrome, you utter numpty... That is a real fucking word, don't you red-line me) of another earth toned villa, so it got removed.

But the endermen need houses too!

Tell her she's being racist against black edritch horrors. :P


EDIT:

This thread has me remembering the minecraft server I set up on my old NAS box...   I am setting up a spigot server on my new NAS (which has a sexxier processor and twice the RAM) in the swanky linux chroot I just set up. Gonna see how well it drives.
