Out Of The Corner Of My Eye

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012


I did this story around 8 months ago…and in around 15 minutes, but, it did win a competition. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰


โ€œMy life has taken me through the stars, the sky, and all imaginable wonders of the uni- verse. My only limits are me. My life. My haters. My agonizing disabilities. My life is pain. Why am on this Earth at all? My depressing life started at Cambridge at only an age of eighteen. A disciplined but well educated university. My life was perfect back then. I had five degrees and still counting in great career leading subjects. But when I turned twenty, I had an epiphany. That I would dedicate my life to astrophysics and beyond the stars. I spent a dedicated five years working harder and harder to achieve my dream. Then it came to the greatest day of my life. The day which I had spent years working on. The day I release my theory. The walk to the stage was a long awaited walk. There was a long tension filled wait. Then it came to the speech. The reaction of the audience was very silent. Possibly too silent. When I concluded my speech, there was a short pause before I heard one man at the back of the crowd shout, โ€œBooโ€. Boo? How could it be? Why? Soon after the first reaction, the whole crowd was booing. I left the stage feeling a hole in my heart. A hole of which should have not been. A few years later, still in distress from what had happened a few years back, I was returning from a VERY long day of work. I sat in my chair feeling an unexpected tingling sensation. It only took a few minutes, but it was a life changing set of minutes, I was paralyzed. I spent a few days in hospital thinking I would recover, thinking that I would be all right and that it was a misunderstanding. But just like before, it wasnโ€™t. Why was I cursed like this? Would I ever see light? I dreamed of a life full of scientific accomplishment. Now I will only see through the corner of my eye.โ€

The day in the life of : Being an artist

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

The ‘Lady Artist’ can be found in Wells Next the Sea, Norfolk, United Kingdom. Please buy one of here products to say thanks for letting me post her work. Thank you for letting me if you’re reading this. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I spent a whole day creating the picture (buying calendar, taking picture of place, finding place e.c.t.) and I hope you like it. I have mixed the painting and real life to create a set of pictures (once they’re all done) of which reflects what I think of Norfolk coasts. The positions of all the people/animals are the same as the painting. Also, I create a white border around each painting to almost blend them in real life.

The day in the life of a : Server Host : Part Two

How to update a server:

I know a lot of you will be updating your servers for 1.3.1. But…how?
After updating over 145 plugins today and working 5 hours strait, I’m done updating! YAYYYYY!

  1. Backup! Backup! Backup! I advise using a plugin such as Mine backup for this. Or if the server is home hosted, copy the server into your hard drive. Warning: Backup Plugins do sometimes break privacy laws, use with caution!
  2. Update the server jar file to a dev build if it’s early in development (some are broken). Always try to use recommended builds.
  3. Install the big plugins, one by one. Test them, and update all the files possible. If they don’t work, log it and delete it. For smaller plugins you can update them in chunks.
  4. Test everything works together in chunks, maybe see if the update works for a friend.
  5. If plugins didn’t work, wait a few days and check they’ve updated.
  6. Share reports with friends, maybe that will help make their server updating simpler.
  7. Your Done!

If you need help, feel free to comment. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Massively Minecraft is an epic server, and has always been. No story is needed this time. No more should or needs to be said.

Anyone under the age of 18 should have permission from a parent or guardian before joining new servers.

I’m working on the new server like my friends and I have been for 8 months now due to the grief of the past :S. And its coming out next week! Its going to be 24/7, and have tons of jobs and quests to do. This time, there will be more antigreifing, and people will have plots which they can build in with their friends. The website is simple, (click the image to go to it). Please come join my white list, you know you want too! ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, there are 24 slots all the time, so come with a friend as well to have twice the fun.
