Some of you may not understand the significance of discovering an sbanth mining facility, so I'll elaborate.

Minecraft is a game that lends itself to multiple playing styles, but in general, the game encourages building on a massive scale. Commie builds giant castles that aren't that interesting to look at but are still enormous. Crytax builds highways from one place to the next that are too large and of such a quality of material as to be kind of mind-numbing. aaronjer tends to build giant naked pictures of Zelda along with one or more Cloud Lodge Cumuli and Nezumi spends most of his time building elaborate redstone mechanisms or stuffing TNT into where it clearly doesn't belong. Superjer, at least recently, has been building monster traps and a large railway system. For my own part, I just build staircases, or bridges, or mineshafts that aren't that interesting unless I end up inspired somehow.

sbanth doesn't build anything, except for that one fishing lodge which you aren't allowed to litter in. sbanth just digs. Digging is the only thing sbanth does. There are almost never any torches, never any caverns that seem to open up, no directions are posted, and the shafts are never more than a block wide. sbanth mining operations continue until lava is reached, at which point sbanth dies, and then spends several hours trying to retrieve a corpse, only managing to create more and more corpses until eventually he gives up and starts doing something different.

So, you can see how clearly important this discovery is.

ACCURATE.

Also, despite the lack of any essential structure or defining features to the tunnel network, the only appropriate nomenclature is in fact "mining facility" as NatureJay has kindly pointed out.

Lots of people do that. Then they eventually play it and are like "WTF THIS IS AWESOME WHY DID I TAKE SO LONG TO PLAY THIS?!"

So, basically, you're retarded.

I'm one of very few people I know who didn't resist it at all. Milkz was all like, "Come play Minecraft" and I was like "Where do I type in my credit card info?"

I don't know if I qualify. I didn't play it when I knew I didn't have time to play it, but when the LAN party came around and people said LET'S PLAY MINECRAFT, I did.

I got to know about minecraft from youtube, after a couple of bored hours. I got it and all my friends went like "noooes" before playing it.

I managed to lure them both in, they now spend most of their time playing Minecraft or swearing to Notch for making it too "bad". Bad as in "I can't play, it sucks!"

The spell was broken when the laptop overheated, or something. I dunno. It is now slightly less than awesome and I will be yelling about "help I need help", perhaps over the weekend.

But yes, Minecraft! Is it really the *worst* implementation? Think about, for instance, Magicka. I mean, Java's not great, but it's available pretty much everywhere and the requirements are still fairly low.

Ah, you say this, but the overheating is far more to do with my laptop than it is to do with Java. This thing has worse thermal dissipation than a woolly mammoth.

This is why I will one day build myself a big sexy computer. I can then stop attempting to play games on this thing.

Minecraft overheats my laptop too. Fortunately I have an external fan. I learned certain lessons the hard way. But Civ4 and Starcraft II, those make sense as laptop overheating programs. Minecraft?

My guess: the many chunks of land, the moderately-complex lighting, and of course Java being about 3-4 times as slow.

Also I'm not kidding, if I browse the internet with it on my lap it gets fairly unbearably warm.

Right, that's kind of my point. Java is a resource hog and is designed to do anything but what he's having it do. If he'd programmed it in a more sensible language, it probably wouldn't be as prone to overheating laptops as it is at present.

Obviously he should have written it in QCL. Then instead of overheating your computer it would simply send it into another dimension.

Hey... maybe that would be a way to get into the nether in multiplayer?

Superjer has a LOLCODE header. It works quite nicely, but writing anything other than trivial programs in it is a bit like writing nontrivial programs in C, with CAPS EVRYWHAR.

Definitely not.

It did make me want to play Heroes 3 again though. I wish I knew why that was the only good game they made in the series.
