I dunno what good these guys are gonna do looking at SQL.

Rather unusually, ReadEra in my little Nook tablet is not amused by my Cryptonomicon epub, center justified regardless of what setting I use, even tho it looks fine in Murasaki on desktop (best epub reader I've ever found, not every book really makes sense in the scroll UI but it's fine).

I guess it's the haiku that are confusing it? May have to do something about that.

job: I get by.
how: Times are tough.
world: The world is ending!
*: What?

\o/ !

They can sorta do commands but I need to get script evaluation in.

Well, after a couple hours and total restarts for new mods, I finally found fields, animals, and got some basic supplies. Only mobs I've seen have been shit-looking zombies and ghosts (who I stayed away from).

If I stayed at it, I could supposedly make a leather backpack, and a bed for safety, and my inventory wouldn't be such a disaster.
