Welcome and introduction
Hi there, just call me Jack. Although I use this full name and avatar everywhere on the net, it isn't actually my birth name. I'm not going to share that personal information. In fact, I believe everyone should have a (real-looking) alias while surfing, not only because it's cool, but because the medium isn't as personal as being face to face. Privacy is more important than your real life name. What is important, is that the name you use to identify yourself, is in fact your real name.
For a few years now I've been playing Minecraft, and I like to reflect doing that technical stuff in the game as well. Inventing, automating, figuring out, researching, and perfecting what I have already is what I love to do. In terms of play style, I guess I'm a solo player. But I've worked in teams too, such as moderating on the Chroma Hills server.
Some of my proud minecraft inventions:
- Redstone Inc.TM (imaginary company label)
- Moo MachineTM (breed & forget cooked steak machine)
- JANETTM ("Jack's Nether Transport")
- Fully Automated Sugarcane Machine
Every now and then I'd also like to play with words and phrases. Some of my favourites:
- Automation, Machines, Factory, Iron Golem Farm, The Mines, Extreme Hills, Jack-of-all-trades (it's my name!)
- "Am I correct to assume (...)?"
- "Words come in all sizes. But even if they suit you well, it doesn't mean they are said at the right moment"
For a long time, I've not been able to play snapshots effectively. I've had problems with my profile settings overwriting eachother and had lack of memory issues. Thanks to a very informative chat on Discord with someone I was able to resolve these issues and I'm now playing the latest snapshot with a lot of enthusiasm. I'm keeping track of a lot of bugs, at the moment of writing over 70 of them, and it's a lot of fun. But I'm very new to doing this, and although I've got a special build for this in a special world, I still can't test everything on this computer. But if you need help with testing stuff out, I'm happy to help when I got the time!
