1104: Feathers link doesn't work

Was randoming through comics and found https://xkcd.com/1104/ and noticed it had a link to a very cool sounding youtube video. Said video is dead :(.

Re: Minecraft

Ya, my experience from the one server I played with McMMO on it was not positive. It also didn't help that it was on a pvp factions server (poor choice on my part) so it basically came down to grinding out levels so you could have a chance at being competent. And server run stores are just a poor id...

I think it's a totally fine thing to do. While it would make some of the earlier ones trivial, they are often not too difficult and developing something that can solve them is pretty easily done.

Re: Path of Exile - Borrow from ALL the games!

You don't need to identify every magic item. Often they're not that big of a bonus over whites. If you don't have any potential use for it, just let it die or vendor it. I have not had any problems with wisdom scrolls after about level 10-15.

Yep.

Also open world pvp everywhere only policed by players. I lov...

It's locked as long as the power to the repeater is on. From the bit I've played with it I've made a 3x1x6 T flipflop and then combined them into a counter that has 4x6 modules, completely without pistons being involved so it's nice and silent.
