Just watched another Hermitcraft video from  +Keralis

http://youtu.be/nusexscZkEI

and he was trying to hide the bed under carpet but couldn't actually use it and breaking and replacing kind of defeats the purpose...

So I made a bed and provided small access from the head.
When the head is against a wall, you could do something
(? half slab oak with a chest or whatever...) at the foot

Changing the green wool to a glowstone block would be cool too...

I watch the Hermits play minecraft and they communicate with mail boxes.  There is normally a piece of grey wool under the mailbox, but when a package is delivered, the mail carrier has to remove a piece of green wool out of the mailbox (chest) swap the two colors and then place the grey piece back into the mailbox so that the receiver can then repeat the process after they have read the mail.

So using a trapped chest that gives a redstone signal whenever the lid is open to trigger the "new mail" status and a button to "mark as read"

I have designed (repurposed) this super simple piston setup. It doesn't look too bad. There are tons of ways to decorate it according to the environment or each home etc. It doesn't take up too much space...

I also showed a couple lighting examples, the last using the arrow glitch shown by +xisumavoid earlier today will not work as it emits a redstone signal that powers the upper piston keeping the system in the "all read" state.

(it looks much cleaner vertical than horizontal.  Also I spent a couple hours doing edge triggers and whatnots to make toggle style pistons and they were just so bulky for this task.)

The stupid comment thing at +YouTube is still broken for me so this is my alternative to posting there...

+ZombieCleo You are done with the border and I don't want to be one of those "you could have done this instead" people...

When you first started breaking the sand, you were aiming up so that as soon as it broke, you were looking at the sand falling down and couldn't place the block...
If you are looking down (you may be familiar with burning columns of sand and gravel with a torch?) you have an extra split second to place. Test it on a few small stacks off camera to get a feel for the timing.

That is a decent skill to have for a variety of things in mc (torching columns is quite useful when you are mining in a hurry and don't mind wasting  resources...)

+YouTube  Please respond. (repost I forgot to add the image lol)

I can't add art I can't send feedback. It says I need to sign in. I am already signed in. Sometimes I can't like comments. It pops up a page that goes away and I am guessing it is related. Sometimes when it gives a popup for me to sign in and I do so, it gives an error that can't be done now...

To recap...

If you use the starbucks app, at least make sure that you are using a unique password and not the same one that you use for your email or bank!

(since we know you like to reuse passwords everywhere. You know I am talking to you 20%ers)

Sorry for the spam, +Natalie Villalobos even though YT is not directly your thing, maybe you could get me an email or something that gets responded to.

This is really annoying and I will gladly supply any info I can to help resolve this issue. (Since +YouTube is probably too busy to use this for support, only marketing)

I am sure I follow whoever can do something, but idk...
I will start searching and spam googlers connected to youtube in the comments maybe?

and +Timothy Armstrong ...


I only mentioned  any of you if I thought you had a direct relation to youtube and maybe could get me to some help.
I am not meaning to spam. I just am not able to send feedback using youtube's system. (and I like it here too)

I will now start searching google for email or other types of form submission that does not require me to login

(even though I am already logged in duh)
