     I've been playing Minetest on a certain server, and have been watching things through the IRC quite a bit, and I've noticed multiple times while just watching the IRC that people are talking about being griefed so I thought to myself, there must be a way to create a little script that can run through the logs and detect bad behavior. I'm no expert when it comes to the command line and bash, but I bashed a little something together, (pun intended) and created a working script.


cd $(dirname $0)

TIME=$(date "+%y-%m-%d")...

     So for some reason spam bots seem to really like this article, and have tried to post around eighty comments to it at the time of this writing. I get emails for each comment posted and have to approve them so my posts don't get flooded with spam. Some of the comments have been really amusing though, and so I thought I'd share them with you, so without further ado.

It's hard to come by educated people for this topic, but you sound like you know what you're talking about!

Umm, I guess thanks, I didn't...

     Life Screams is the first solo album from Lacey Sturm (former lead singer of Flyleaf), and was released on February 12th 2016.
     My relationship with Flyleaf has an odd start, back in two-thousand eight Third Day released their album Revelation which had a track "Run to You" that featured Lacey. I fell in love with her voice right away, and shortly thereafter discovered Flyleaf, and have been a fan since.
     As a long time fan of Flyleaf I was saddened when Lacey made the decision to leave Flyleaf...

     I've just added a new page to my Minetest collection, tutorials! Now these tutorials won't be modding tutorials, as they already have a section of their own, but tutorials on how to install mods, texturepacks, subgames, how to set up servers, gameplay related things to the engine. I already have a few such videos made, so the page has four videos linked already, each with all their related links and such to make everything simple and easy to use.
     I have a plan to do a series of shorts on the complete basics of Minetest, how to create worlds,...

     Throttling your internet might seem crazy, I mean why would you ever want to have slow internet? Well consider this, you have multiple machines on the same network, a couple laptops, a few desktops, cell phones, tablets, you get the idea. Say you decide you want to upload a video to youtube, but don't want to eat up all your upload speeds doing that, now if you had a nice router you could probably limit the upload speeds on a device basis, but for those of us that are stuck with garbage routers that isn't an option. Introducing TC, this has been around for years I'...

     Pallets have often been considered as a great option for diy projects, a quick look on Pinterest will yield thousands of results. As such many people seem to think that finding pallets is an easy thing to do, I found the opposite to be true. Honestly the hardest part of this project was probably just finding the pallet. I work in retail, but we send all our pallets back, I thought maybe other places maybe didn't, but looking behind all the local businesses it appeared as if they were sending their pallets back as well. Which if you think about it makes complete sense,...

     Well it's that time of year again, Christmas, the time when people stuff their faces with too much food, and have to hang out with family that they'd rather not see, or buy things for, ah yes, the best time of the year. I hope you realize that I'm being sarcastic, while there doubtless are people that feel this way about the holiday I am not one of them. Christmas may not be my FAVORITE time of year, but it's a pretty amazing time, big meals, time off from work, gifts, lots of family and friends. More important though is a baby that was born some two-thousand years...

The mood is right
The spirits up
We're here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The party's on
The feeling's here
That only comes
This time of year

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The choir of children sing their song
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding ohhhh

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful...

It was almost Christmas time
There I stood in another line
Tryin' to buy that last gift or two
Not really in the Christmas mood

Standing right in front of me was
A little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing 'round like little boys do
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

And his clothes were worn and old
He was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my...

We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
And a cup of good cheer

We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring it right here

So bring us some figgy pudding
