    I am feeling particularly thankful for internet access just about now.

    Way back when the internet was still fairly new, I had a STRANGE case of Windows for Workgroups making Quickbooks act weird. Of the 7 workstations, only 3 could see the Quickbooks data at any one time. I tried and tried to figure it out, but was stuck.

    I kept asking what changed from the day before, when EVERYTHING was working fine.

    Finally, somebody volunteered that they got a new HP LaserJet, but that was the ONLY thing different.

    I did my online research, and lo and behold -- a documented case of HP Laserjet drivers causing connectivity problems over Windows for Workgroups, making the Quickbooks database disconnect!!!!

    Who knew!!!!!

    The tall wooden pillars with lanterns on top are there because I had my render distance set really low because my computer couldn't handle having a lot of area loaded at once. I often leave Minecraft running while I'm away from the computer, and I want my automated farm stuff to keep doing its thing. If I stand in the middle of the village and I can see all my pillars, I know the entire area is loaded. I guess I don't need those anymore. These screenshots are from two different villages, and the middle pillar in the last screenshot can now be seen from the second village!
