After Minehost went belly-up, the communal Minecraft server I played on went dead —and stayed dead — for about 6 months. However, I have revived it, on brand spanking new hardway and several major iterations of Minecraft later! Not only that, but it’s running the bad-assery that is Tekkit Lite, which means you can do crazy things like build automated mining robots, write simple computer programs in-game, harness the power of volcanoes, even create whole new dimensions via books like in Myst.
Seriously, I have no idea why it took me so long to get on top of Tekkit. That shiz’s cray.
