Someone is trying to keep me from minecraft.

Well, yesterday I couldn't get on a minecraft server until time for me to go to bed. Today I planned to get in a little time on minecraft after eating. I usually make me some dinner and watch some television since it is difficult to eat and do anything on minecraft. I have a tuner card in my computer. I got it because the cable company tries to force you to rent their equipment. They have it now so that you can only get about 20 channels unless you have some of their equipment. The cheapes

My birthday plans.

My birthday will be on Friday the 1st of June. I plan on playing minecraft Friday and Saturday as much as possible. For those who want to know what to get me for my birthday, get on JR's server while I am there. I have relatives who can't be where I am and being on the server with me is a fair substitute since it is all about having fun. Robert

Why I haven't been on much the last 2 weeks.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been on the server much or posted much content on the forum in the last 2 weeks. This is what the last 2 weeks have been like. The week before last, the other maintenance man I work with was away at school for some new equipment that we just bought. I was left by myself to keep everything running for half of each day and get some moved equipment going again for all of that week. I got off Saturday, but my wife had to go to Wisconsin on Sunday becau

Expensive weekend.

I have been busy spending money this weekend, My cable company completely dropped analog signal for digital only, so my bedroom tv no longer worked without a signal converter. My battery backup for my modem and network switch died. I stopped by the store on the way home from work and bought a new battery backup and a new television, spent over $400 there. Went home and started removing all the old video cables and every other kind of cable that has accumulated over the last 20 years. I mus

How can we get people to read information on JRNetwork?

I have been trying to think of how we can get new JRNetwork members to look at more than just the Minecraft game. We get many new members each day, but they are primarily interested in playing Minecraft. Many of the players ask questions that are answered on forum. I have become disinterested in posting on the forum because only a few people regularly read what is posted here. I see how many people look at my posts and then I see how many Minecraft players ask the same questions over and ove

How JR has changed since I first came here.

I first came to the JR Minecraft server nearly 6 months ago. I looked through many pages of servers listed on Planet Minecraft looking for an up to date server that allowed flying. I came to JR and got help from a member on the first day. They gave me a place to stay and some supplies to get started. I built a house and thought I had it made. I got attacked in my house and killed by a player who wanted to get experience by killing other players, so he stayed at my spawn and stabbed me in th

My Bad Day

I was reading about Emil's "good day" and it reminded me about a day I had a few years ago. I thought you might find it interesting. This day started out as a project I had assembling a large storage shed in my back yard. I had started on the project the day before, but it was a large project and I hadn't finished it. I built the floor and was still working on it. During the day my children showed up to help and I accomplished quite a bit. It got dark, so I decided to start putting stuff a

My weekend

Well my weekend started out at 2:30 am Saturday morning. I had to work from 4am to 2pm, but work was uneventful, just work. Next came unusual stuff. My brother's birthday was Saturday, so I left work to go home first and then to my brother's for his birthday. I got home about 2:45pm to get my wife, daughter and 3 grandchildren on the road to my brother's house. My brother lives 50 miles away with my mother and sister (barbermiss). My wife is mom999. The car was full, so I rode with anothe

Today was an interesting day.

Today (actually yesterday now) started out as an uneventful Saturday. I went to the minecraft server and not too many people were on, so I decided to check out the JR network forum for anything interesting. The first thing I noticed was a new topic by Peter about SOPA. I read his post and the comments and decided to add my own comment. I usually like to write offline and paste in the text and this is what I did this time too. When I got ready to paste it in I got an error that said I didn't

How well does your computer run minecraft?

I was talking to Jamie the other day and he mentioned that his frame rate was only 5 frames per second on his laptop. I told him that my sister (barbermiss) has the same complaint. When I first started playing minecraft I had some issues with the game due to a low end video card in my desktop computer. I did some research and decided to buy a top of the line gaming laptop computer. I spent $2000 on it but I feel that the money was well spent. My frame rate is typically around 120 fra

My first blog entry

This entry is just to let you know a little about me. My name is Robert S. Toy and my minecraft name is rstoy. I know it isn't very original, but it is short, easy for me to remember and it works well enough for me. I am 52 years old and have been a computer user since 1984. I do maintenance work for a printing company in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. I spend most of the day helping machine operators with problems they have running their equipment. I know how JR's staff feel when they a
