I’m glad that my blog is back up and running and that I can once again access cPanel. My blog was down for almost 6 hours today (and I have no clue why it happened), but hopefully, it won’t go down in the future. I’m not able to stream tonight, as I have less than two hours until I need to get ready and leave for work. I will, however, be working on my city for a bit tonight, and I’m thinking about setting up a stone brick and gravel factory. Gravel is not that common, but it does make flint in the crusher, so setting up a factory to grind cobblestone (that’s being auto-generated anyways) is a good idea as well as cooking the cobblestone into stone and then fashioning the stone into stone bricks for buildings. I’ll probably set up the machines first, including their connection to the network before I begin building the factory structure.
Don’t edge if you are trying to break free of addiction – it leads to relapse! Trust me on this as it happened to me this morning, and if it happened to me, it will happen to you as well!
I will likely be streaming less in the next few months as an election can be called as early as February 2nd. I have volunteered my time to door knock for the local UCP candidate’s campaign and will be doing so this Saturday afternoon after a meeting. As I do not drive, I will be spending my effort in Camrose alone. However as a Board Member of the local constituency, I catch rides to meetings outside of Camrose, like the one next month which is scheduled for Tofield.
I usually don’t stream on Wednesday nights because I enjoy watching the Adults Only Minecraft live stream on YouTube those evenings. It’s always fun to watch and learn something new on that channel and to learn about various data packs and other stuff that they choose to run on their server for that season’s live stream.
There is a new poll on my Twitter profile about how many episodes you want to see released each week – please vote!
I will be live streaming to my Twitch channel tonight and tomorrow night at 11 PM and at 2 AM (both times are based in the America/Edmonton time zone). Each live stream will last for about two hours and that will be the schedule for my live streaming going forward. More likely than not, I will be streaming Minecraft – sometimes from a server called Chipping Blocks (a survival server on hard mode) and sometimes from a streamable game I’ve created for the Peaceful Pack I play through as a series on my YouTube channel.
I’ve added Environmental Tech to the Peaceful Pack. It’s a high-end tech mod that requires you to have at least acquired diamonds and gone to the Nether to start crafting the blocks in it. However, it has powerful mining and energy producing capabilities once you get into it. I would consider the Peaceful Pack with all the tech mods in it more of a tech modpack than a Vanilla+ one at this point.
I will be streaming on occasion to my Twitch channel, but only when the mood strikes me, and I will not be streaming Minecraft or the other game I am playing through at the moment on my YouTube channel. I am working on a new project today, but I may stream a game this afternoon if I get it done or get bored as it’s just data entry of categories that need to be completed before I can open Gate 90 as the web’s newest business directory.
If you can’t write anything polite in the comments here or on YouTube, don’t bother writing anything at all. I will just mark your comment as spam and drop it and no one else will ever read it. You may post what you like on Facebook or Twitter about me, but if I see it, I will block your account and then post my side of the story.
I’m actively searching for work at the moment and will admit I am a former addict to porn. I know that this addiction will haunt me the rest of my days and that I will need to fight it every single day. The fact that I haven’t given up and said that I can’t win and am relying on the strength that my Saviour provides me is proof of my dedication to my faith and the living of a Christian life. I am not a scammer (like a guy claimed on Facebook in response to a review of mine to the church I am a member of and attend regularly) but a true born-again believer who struggles in some areas of his walk with God.
I will be live streaming to YouTube three days a week from now on as my schedule. Those days are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (today, what an interesting development 😉 ) and on the days I work in the afternoon I will be streaming until noon, and on the days I am off, I will be streaming as long as I want to. Occasionally I will be streaming on Saturdays when I feel like it as well, but it isn’t part of the official schedule. 😉 If you want to know when the next stream is, join my Discord server and you will get a notification when I go live.
Hey, citizens of CityCraft and visitors to my blog!
Due to the lack of players on the CityCraft server, lack of posts on the CityCraft forums, and active chat in the Discord server, I am severely inclined to shut the Discord server and website down and switch the Minecraft server to a whitelisted one for my Patreon supporters and Twitch subscribers. Unless the CityCraft server becomes more active (as well as the Discord server and the CityCraft forum) soon, I will be doing this.
I do not wish to take this action, but I feel I have no choice in this. I would also be rebooting the CityCraft server and changing the modpack (adding two plugins, one of them a major one in Tinker’s).
Thanks for your time today,
Nathan Pinno (swagnillaice)
PS. If I do take this action, I’ll move the modpack and zip file links here to a password-protected page and give the password only to my subscribers and supporters. That page will also contain a list of the mods my server and I use.
