Backup Disk Crash


So, my backup disk just crashed. Thankfully, it wasn't my internal one but this doesn't mean much. The only thing that concerns you is that any backups of the server are now gone. I'm backing up my system now but everything that was backed up from 5 months ago until now is lost.

Looking into getting a new drive because the one I have now doesn't have enough space for my whole computer.

So yeah. Happy Monday.

Through the Mines is on Google+

Hello everyone,

Today, Google announced that it had added new safety features to Google+ to protect teenagers from the "dangers of the internet" so I made an account today and got myself a little situated. If you're a teenager (Read: 13 and over) and want to join Google+, just go to (log in to your Google account if you have one and if you don't, I'm pretty sure there's a button on in the top right hand corner that lets you create one) and click on the "+You" button in the top left hand corner (in the picture above) and Google will do the rest.

So once you do that (or if you already did that) click here to go to the Through the Mines page:

If you added this page to your circle (I sound cool) then thanks and I'll (try) to post stuff.

Happy Google+ing? (I don't know how you're supposed to say it)

Please Read if You Go on the Moog/Thimble Lake City Server!

Hi Minecrafters,

The reason your reading this is that I just recently got an app that allows you to manage most of your server from an iOS device. That means no more going on LogMeIn and squinting anymore! But what it means for you is a new way to contact me if I happen to be either on my iPad or iPhone. Just type /calladmin mystupidreason(justkidding) and it will send me a push notification on my devices telling me that you're in need of help. Also, I can respond to you very promptly since this app has a built in chat feature with which I can chat with you through the app. If I for some reason can't be reached by this, then texting to my number is fine. I would prefer this however because it tells me that someone needs help on the server. Not only will this app help me with chatting, but, like I mentioned earlier, I can basically doing everything from my phone which will prove very useful for fixing things on the go.

Don't spam me,

- Aidan

P.S: If your wondering what this app is called, it's called Adminium. Get it at It requires Bukkit and knowledge of working with a server (installing plugins, editing config files, etc.).

Discontinuing Custom John Smith Texture Pack

Sorry. Please don't kill me (again),

As the title says I am discontinuing the custom John Smith pack that I put out. I haven't updated it since 1.7, I believe, and have no reason too, since I found a pack that I am happy with called Faithful (, which is basically the Minecraft textures in an HD format. Once again, the John Smith textures are great and I still might use the default pack from time to time. But, I have lost interest in it and will not be customizing and distributing it anymore.

If you want to download the default John Smith pack or customize your own, you can go here:

Sorry for any inconvenience,

- Aidan
