  1. So I was working up till 12:30 last night working on the test out problem of my math class so I didn't have to come to any more classes, ( they had gotten boring since I was banned for talking for solving and answering the questions to fast, and I had not much else to do) and now when I turn it in mat answer was only 1.01 degrees off. That's not the problem though, because I was up so late I was extremely tired since I get up at 5:30 to have time to catch the bus.

    My bus ride is 30 min so I usually take a book along to read, today I was reading my book which was a beautiful leather bound book and got slightly car sick after about a chapter and a half. I set the book down next to me and looked out the window and may have fallen asleep I woke up just in time to see that the next stop was mine so I pulled the chord grabbed my pack and got off after I took my second bus the rest of my way to school and walked in I became aware that my book wasn't with me... I scrambled to get my iPod hooked up to the wifi to find the number for the transit systems lost and found number and I called them, they open at 7:30 and since it was 7:10 I had to spend 20 minutes pacing around worrying about my book.

    At 7:30 I called them but they say nothing lost today will be available until tomorrow after 8:30. I have class at 8 that goes for 2 hours so I won't be able to call until 10:00... I'm really stressing out and really trying to have faith in humanity that someone finds my book and gives it to the bus driver instead of taking it...

    On a happier not I got an A on the last test of my math class and that gives me an A overall this semester. Along with the A I'm getting in English I'm happy!

  2. I can understand, a little. I hoping to get chickens in the summer, probably not baby ones but chickens none the less. We've built the chicken coop and have had it up for about 2 years now but haven't had time to complete all the papers we need to do for chickens in the city, mainly because every time we get them done and have time to go and wait for a couple of hours to get them approved they change the things you need to do and we have to do a whole new set of things.


    School is stressing me out... I like going there and getting work done but my classes are taking away from my time for each other and taking time away from my free time that I need to not go crazy. kinda glad the end of the semester is coming up and I won't have to worry about all of the classes. I'm losing time for my weekends and that makes me sad...


    Also I completed Portal 2 yesterday. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a game as much as that. (Well I'm also enjoying Skyrim but I'm not done with that yet.) Kinda thinking of getting the first Portal. I've played a bit of it a long time ago but never really played it, played it.

  3. Hello, I haven't really been on the forums in a while but I've been meaning to get beck into the community more. One thing I thought would be nice to have on the forums is a emotion bucket. 


    Basically, this is a shoulder to lean on, if you are stressed and fell like you need to share you're story to make yourself feel better/get an outside opinion this is where to put it. Just no cursing or profanity. JR has helped me a lot when I'm feeling down and I know how much it means for someone to listen, even if they can't help you with the answer just telling the question to someone can help clear things up. 


    Now this isn't for just sad things, this is a Emotion Bucket, so not just sadness. If you're really happy about something share it too! Really talk about anything you need to talk about to make yourself feel even better then you already are feeling, (you're on JR how can you feel completely bad knowing a place as awesome as this exists in the world? 


    If you need a friend to talk to come here, if you need advice come here. The one thing I ask is that if you are here please don't post anything provocative.


    I personally know how much it hurts when you need to talk to someone but now, can or will listen. So I'll listen as long as everyone can help everyone then everyone will be happy. :D





  4. I am really enjoying some of Jules Verne's books right now. But for one favourite book... Tim took a good one, so I'll have to go with one similar, but different.

    Anthem by Ayn Rand

    It is also in the future a couple decades after a war. Though it in the future there isn't advanced technology. Technology has actually decreased, the latest and greatest invention was the candle. Society has change too, the world leaders have taken individuality away by removing words like "I" and "Ego" so people never refer to themselves as a singular person but as a collective "We."

    The book is based around this one guy who has always been different then others. And because of that he was always outcasted. He was mainly different in the sense that he had a will for learning and he really wanted to work hard for the good of his brothers, as they called everyone. When the people become a certain age they get assained a life job. The protagonist extremly wanted to be a scholar to advance his studies and unlock the secrets of the world, but he was assained the job street sweeper.

    One day on his job he found an old passage to and old subway tunnel with many things he had never seen before. He decided to keep it secret and study there. He figured out many things but mainly he redescovered electrical light. From tests he was doing with different things he kept seeing that there must be an invisible force causing certain events to happen. He tries to show his invention to the world counsel, but they claim that anything done in solitude must be evil and destroyed.

    I'm giving to much away but it's a great book.

    4 1/2 out 5 stars. (It's kinda too short.)

  5. I like the sound of this, but I build really quickly. Meaning pretty much all I had on the tekkit server was reset and now is all gone. So I couldn't neccisaraly do this now. I'm almost done with school this semester. Only have two days left. So I can try after that. Another thing is, I haven't been able to really be on for a bit because my cat bumped my laptop of my bed and kinda broke it. It works still but not as fast. I'm saving up to either buy a good computer or buy the parts to build a good computer.

    This is a good idea and I could try to re fix up my area of stuff, I don't think I could film or take pictures of it though. My computer is not letting me do that.

  6. Hey I was gone for the weekend so I wasn't able to work much on clearing the land. But if you want to see it The area I have pieced out is at /warp landclear someone else who was helping me made that warp. It's bigger then it looks when you keep going. Past the jungle biome there is a swamp and desert, and where the warp is there is a pretty good grassy biome. I have started leveling some of the land near the warp for a city and am going to start laying out the walls soon.

  7. Ok I didn't know if the the stuff was still there in the us server. I wasn't able to get on but I'll try again.

    Ok I found a spot it's about 3000 blocks away from spawn and a pretty nice area. I am teraforming and clearing the land of trees for right now I will start building a wall around this entire big island soon.

  8. Ok I'm not sure but I think Jamie said that the old single tekkit server world is gone, I don't know since it isn't on the eu server and the US server is working weird for me. Because of that I have been working on the eu server and am getting pretty well set up. It's really nice since the most people I have seen on there is only about 4. So come on sometime. I haven't set a warp send me a tap if you see me. I am going to start working on building the main gate and Camelot.

  9. That's kinda what I have in mind, each city that needs some sort of power other then redstone lamps and things such as that will have it's own power source/station. I don't know if I would have just anyone be able to access the power of the city. I am not that trusting of just anyone that comes on the server. Especially when some cities might have some sort of dangerous or expensive power source.

    Note to all members of the team, I am going to make a plan to get as many of us on during Friday from around 4-6 U.S. central. It is a little on the spot since it is this week, but if you are able to be on at that time that would be great. I know that my time zone is about 5 or 6 hours behind GMT if that helps anyone. I know that @ is one hour ahead of me when he is in school. Anyways I'll probably get on for a bit tonight.

    On a side note, has MK3s been blacklisted or something? When ever I try right-clicking one my tekkie crashes.

    Also what are your guy's thoughts on my previous post?

  10. Like k4 said, the warp is oil but that just the factory, sometime today I place on going out and finding a good place for the actual project. We have the factory here because of the oil, but the actual land around that is just tundra for 1500 blocks or more in each direction. What do people think about building this all over water and just make it a little smaller but have only the cities. I am not particularly fond of this idea since both @ and I know just how long it takes to make a 100x100 area. I am just putting this idea out there because the other biggest part of the map is the ocean and we could just teraform our own land. It would have to be by hand though. Other wise I think finding the right sized area with no one in it might be kinda hard. Unless @Jamie is up to the idea of having a separate world on the tekkie server for this and all other roleplaying, kinda like the one there is/was on the vanilla server. (I am not entirely sure about what is going one with that atm since sadly i have not been on JR vanilla server in a while, last I heard it was in progress.) If Jamie is reading this, I am not really asking if this is possible or not, I am just asking what are your thoughts on this. Since I know that when it comes to running a Minecraft server nothing is impossible for Jamie.

  11. k4l397 and I have kinda decided that it would be best to have our factory at the oil and make what we need to make there, and build the actual world somewhere else. But we have tanks of oil going from layer 100 to past the clouds that are almost full and the entire pool underground is barely touched. I have started working on the factory, and it will be kinda like what I did on the server that you set up k2.

  12. Ok could someone help be get a pump and refinery and storage area set up? I'm working on building a oil station there. @Rugtugba gave me a couple of tanks but I don't think 12 ill be enough. By the way is there a dynamic map for this server? That would be better then wondering around.

    To answer my own qution yep there is and I can see that I'm the only one that far out so far.

  13. I was wandering around and I found a new place. 4000+ blocks away from spawn, in the middle of a giant snow biome for about 750+ block each direction except ocean. Why, I found a gush of oil that is going about 40 block into the sky. This will be able to power us for a long long long long long long long time. You can ask rug, he saw it, it's crazy. I don't have warp yet, we may use a different place. But the place I was talking about earlier won't work as I found there were other people near by. So let me know what you guys want. I could keep going and looking for a really good area and give up this huge amazing oil field, or we can work what's there and use this epicness.
