  1. I am a rocket scientist now! (Doesn't mean I am any smarter than before)

    Heyo fellow HappyDiggers!

    Never in my wildest dreams could I have expected my career to turn out the way it has so far. Ok... A little back story...

    Some of you guys may have seen the giant wall that is in the Western part of the Small World map, but not every1 knew that it was mine. This is one of the bigger projects that I have ever done legit in minecraft (the other being the dome).

  5. Nether Station (Vanilla)

    The current progress of the Nether Station Project on the Vanilla server. One of the terminals (in the f=0 direction) is wired up and running. I am very excited for this project to be finished. My intention is to have easier transportation to each other's areas to encourage play time and reduce the dreaded "DEATH WALK."
