Some more help with Thaumcraft 4 – Minecraft Mod

leave a comment »

I love Thaumcraft 4 so hard! Raging fanboi, confession – you got it.

Hopefully my tutorial/let’s play is both helpful and entertaining, and shows you what’s it’s like in an actual SSP world.

Minecraft legend Direwolf20 has a great mod spotlight of Thaumcraft 4 if you haven’t seen it yet. (Here’s part 2)

 

However, even with spoilers, it can be challenging enough. So here are some great links if you don’t want to discover the secrets for yourself.

(**SPOILER ALERT!***)

Seriously, don’t click them and then whine that you weren’t warned.

First off, “The Tough Man”

haighyorkie’s guide to  Thaumcraft 4 is very helpful visually

Succubism’s  Thaumcraft 4.0.4c Research Cheat Sheet on the FTB forums, is fabulous

The Closest the con has gotten to the light. On…

with one comment

Of course, The Daily Show on May 13th.

The Banks (JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and Citi) made money every day last fiscal quarter, regardless of how the market performed.

Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone Magazine also broke this story, but I’m shocked how little light has been shed on this, and how very very very FUCKIN VERY little people know about this.

Short version: remember that bailout? Where the .gov lent these banks money at 0% interest? What did the banks do with this money? Well they bought treasuries. In other words, they lent money back to the government… but charged them interest for doing so.

What.The.Fuck.

Been a long time since I rock and rolled…

Not that I expect that to change any time soon, but boy have I been absent.

Not that I was deluged by a huge amount of viewers last year… but then again, no new content.

Since then, we’ve got a new president. I keep thinking Obama’s trying to do his bit, but the system is so rotten and corrupt that trying to do anything properly seems next to impossible, I guess.

Anyway, been a long time, and I really need to get back to the blogosphere.

Oil or Grouse?

leave a comment »

Both, apparently, found this story on Rush Limbaugh’s site.

“Just yesterday — this is not anything that hasn’t happened before but it just continued to happen. Just yesterday, we learned that owners of land will not be able to develop it in Montana because of a grouse, a grouse population.  The ultimate aim is to get the grouse put on the endangered species list so the owners of that property can’t do diddly-squat with it.  There’s oil underneath that land, and there’s an opportunity for developers to make residential areas out of it or what have you.  So there are people active in this country, doing everything they can to destroy the country’s ability to grow, to remain prosperous, and to remain a superpower.”

For those of you, like me, who prefer their news without frothing, the Denver Post has a more complete story here: http://www.denverpost.com/politics/ci_9589531

Short summary: The departing Bush administration are trying to open up more oil drilling sites in Montana, Colorado and Utah. Many of these sites are home to dwindling populations of native species, and as such, development of this land has environmentalists deeply troubled.

What it comes down to is we either break our dependence on oil or we break a few eggs to continue …more

I’m still deciding which theme is really what I’m looking for.
