since the server became inactive like a year and a half ago life's been pretty busy, occupied with other things.

I'm entering my third year in college earning 3 associates, all in CIT, i.e. networking, cyber security, and systems administration.  over the summer I'm helping set up new computer labs at multiple campuses.

in my free time I'm doing a custom restoration of a 1976 camaro, will include pictures below.  just got it painted and been working tirelessly and meticulously, working every detail, for the past week.  I bet I've rewatched transformers 20 times going frame-by-frame on the scenes that car was in.  It is truly a labor of love though.

as far as this minecraft server goes, will I start playing again or not, who knows, it all depends. I have no interest in playing video games right now, that doesn't mean I never will again, and that doesn't mean that my property on the server is a free-for-all, so don't get any ideas you heathens wink

the main reason I played was because the concept of justice and how it played out in a voluntaryistic society.  the way justice use to be exacted was with prison pearls, where there was actually a way to punish/deter thiefs and murderers, but when they were removed there was no point.  that's what turned me off ultimately, the server was way more exciting when prison pearls was a thing, there's just no denying it.

I've also undergone a very special journey where I'm part of a core group of people that is planting a brand new church in our community.  our mission is to serve God and others by reaching the lost and unchurched.  our focus is on one specific area code and we have the opportunity to reach close to 18,000 people in that area.  the way we're going to reach them is, rather than sit behind brick and mortar and wait for them to come, we're going out into the community ourselves.  we're actually going to a local park this weekend to grill steaks and hot dogs and give them away.  things like that allows us to form relationships with people and possibly share the Gospel with them.

if you manage to get the opportunity to talk to a complete stranger about religion, you'll be amazed by the kind of responses you'll get, what kind of stories you will hear, even though I live in the part of the country that is termed "the Bible belt", you will still get negative and closed-hearted reactions, so be prepared for that. 

thinking back to when I first joined this server, which iirc was July of 2012, almost 6 years ago, I've grown a lot as a person, learned a lot, I look around and see other people my age (20) or younger, hardly anyone that age cares about philosophy or theology, what's the best political system, if any, what is truth, what is right or wrong.  and i think to myself, man, at 14 I was learning about voluntaryism, lol, on a minecraft server.. just crazy

for those of you reading this who are followers of Christ, and I know there are, pray not only for me, but pray for this new church and for the soon-to-be pastor

to close it off I'll say this, a community like this is rare, the amount of wisdom and life lessons that it has and could still impart on people in the future is vast and I do hope it will continue to do that.

well i haven't been playing much minecraft, server has become very inactive over time, its still up but its mostly a ghost town, i started trying to update it a few times but didn't finish.

Minecraft just kind of got old for me personally, its a great game and had a shit load of fun for years on it, but I got to the point where it felt like I played out all of the exciting content, and managing the server became like an unpaid side job after a while instead of a fun hobby like it had been for most of the time.

I'm not sure if anything will later rekindle my interest in minecraft, maybe.. not ready to decide if im actually done with it, so i'll just keep hosting it for now.

So what HAVE i upto lately? (just talking games here) mostly ive been playing Ark - survival evolved on PS4

the game is almost like a higher detail, much more challenging version of minecraft, with dinosaurs. The overall idea of the game is phenomenally awesome, the reach and potential is off the charts, the design is ambitious and innovative.

BUT the actual implementation is pretty half baked, its extremely buggy, feels like its in alpha years after its been for sale, and has dozens if not hundreds of costly issues that will waste your time, kill your tames, and lose your items...

That being said, its still incredibly fun, incredibly challenging and exciting, and pretty satisfying and rewarding survival gaming experience. I've actually been playing it for over a year now and I still enjoy it, but i do feel like i am getting burned out on it finally. I have pretty much done everything you can do, now im just breeding insane super dinos for lols.

In the last couple days though i discovered a new PC game that is sooo incredible. it reminds me of playing on our minecraft community and really illustrates some of the life lessons i was hoping would be highlighted on our server, lessons about economy, reciprocity, productivity and morality. The game is called "One hour one life"

I am in love with this game, its so incredible, that graphics are hilariously bad, and the game play is complex and short, but the adventure of it, the profoundness, and its touching sentiment have melted my heart Smiley I recommend it for the hardcore and/or social survival game player

I might setup a temporary learning server for myself and anyone else who wants to screw around and explore the building system.

I hope everyone else is doing well out there in the world, but if your not - remember, we all make the world what it is. and if it seems like life isn't going you way, you have the power to change things. You can change yourself, change the people around you, or change the way you deal with the unchangeable. Be the change you want to see in your life, and in the world, and don't be afraid to appreciate what you have.

I came back today after a long vacation from this great server, I joined and nobody was on, and I waited, and there was still nobody on. I had a flashback to 2 years ago when I played regularly, thought about the good times on this server, laughed a little cried a little (no joke) and I felt a heavy weight fall on my shoulders as a realized I was all alone,  sad nobody was on.... This Server, which was once great has.... fallen. But then, I thought to myself, No, this can be fixed! it can't end this way. I would hate to see it so. and so.... If anyone is even reading this, and I hope you are, I WILL BE ON TONIGHT! and so will nixbeast32, and a new guest, my wonderful fiance' with the game tag of FlameRune, so if you have some if any hope at all left in you for this server to rise out of it's ashy grave, well, I might be a dreamer, but I'm no the only one, I hope today you will join me, and the server will be as one  smiley

Hey All!

It's been a little while since I've heard from any of you. I'm hoping everyone is doing alright. Is there a server everyone has been playing on that I don't know about, or has everyone kind of moved away from Minecraft completely? I know about the Discord server but last I checked it was pretty dead.

Things have been good on my end! I signed a lease for my first apartment back at the beginning of November, so that's been an adventure! The very same day my lady and I split. You take the good with the bad I suppose.

I'd love to hear from you guys again! If everyone is still kind of hanging out with each other, I'd love to pop in every once in awhile.
