I have been having such a blast playing Children of Ur since the Alpha 1.1 update [http://childrenofur.com/blog/alpha-1-1-update/]!  There are still plenty of things you could do in Glitch that you can't yet in CoU, but you can commune with the Giants, and you can pet and harvest from trees, and you can nibble piggies, and you can milk butterflies, and you can buy and sell many goods, and you can explore this beautiful world to your heart's content.

Right now I'm madly collecting quoins for posterity, because until the update that allows bags and boxes to function in that bag-like additional-inventory-slots manner (rather than merely taking up one more slot of inventory), there's no point in stocking up on many goods.

And since that bags update will zero out inventory (one of the devs said they'll probably send out a warning a few days in advance so you can sell or donate your stuff before it happens), I'm not going to waste my currants yet on buying the toolbox or bigger bags I have my eye on, either.  Dropping things would probably work if you don't have too many of them, but I discovered last night that when I dropped a couple dozen each of eggs, beans, and cherries all in the same place, only one of each was there in the pile when I tried picking them up again.

And someday there will be houses to store stuff in too...

I did say this game was still firmly alpha, didn't I?  ;>

...and now I need to figure out what's screwy in my Chromium config, because I only get the game sounds there, but I also get the music in Firefox...  (And wow is it weird to hear the Highlands music in Groddle Forest instead of the “frantic banjo”!)

This is quite possibly my favorite #Minecraft title screen message. :)

A few days ago I built a bunch of love shacks in our #Minecraft village. We needed a few more villagers so we could cart some off to populate our incipient iron farm, and we also wanted to get a greater amount of variety in the trade goods and costs.

The love shacks had the desired result; the villagers were very happy indeed, and started getting it on anywhere and everywhere! Baby villagers were bred, grew up, and bred more themselves. Suddenly we had an iron golem... two... three... Villagers were no longer sparse; they were filling up the village... A couple dozen were duly carted off to the iron farm, and that went into production. (Mwahahahahahaha!!! Soon iron blocks will be our throwaway building material!!!)

I was all excited when I started minecrafting tonight; we had gotten up to nine iron golems guarding the village!

And when Teh Abominable Child was signing off, he mentioned to me that we had 13 of them now. Thirteen. Thirteen iron golems in one little village!!! Wow... Where will it end?!? ;D

Wow, I've saved a lot of Google Bookmarks over the years!  Nope; I don't think I need links for Firefox add-ons to make Firefox 4 look and act like Firefox 3 anymore... and Meebo (remember Meebo?) no longer even exists...

*cleans out a bunch of dead links and outdated tech references*

I have a feeling that one or two of you might sympathize with this one...  What do you say, +Google Maps?  ;>
It seems that Google, despite claims to make things in life easier to find, has in effect done quite the opposite; by continuing to look at the screen we forget to look around us and see what is really there. Reply. Leave a Reply Cancel reply. Your email address will not be published.

Today's #foodpornNOM!!!
Typical Mexican enchiladas arrive rolled up and stuffed, but at my favorite enchilada street stand—the inspiration for this recipe—they're stacked in a messy, luxurious pile, with separate individual layers of corn tortillas, fresh cilantro and onion, green enchilada sauce, shredded cheese and chicken. The whole thing is topped with a blanket of crema and more cheese. It's almost like a deconstructed lasagna. The dish is enough to make you fall d...

Now I can't remember who was interested a few weeks ago in using cast iron cookware as a method for raising dietary iron intake.  Of course, when I wanted to tell them about this at the time, I couldn't remember enough relevant keywords for an effective search to locate the articles where I'd read about this thing before...

*sigh*  I used to have a memory; I swear I did!!!
 
How some low tech thinking and a little marketing can make a big difference...

Ah yes, sometimes the low-tech solutions are the best.

I was fortunate that my child learned to adult fairly early and really well, so apart from money, the college part was not really an issue for us.
