Nowadays the old epoch is returning. The epoch of first computer creation repeats itself in the Minecraft Universe.

Here is the list of the most ambitious virtual computers ever built inside Minecraft:
http://uk.businessinsider.com/virtual-computers-built-inside -minecraft-2015-2

But the article is outdated! It's almost year after it.

So there are definitely lots of new developments in the Minecraft world, like the MineOS - entire operation system for Minecraft computer, wrote by one Russian guy...

The MineOS story is even more interesting. Actually it is not a complete operation system, but graphical user interface above another.
OpenComputers mod, which lays under, gives pure DOS experience, and MineOS upgrades it with nice graphical UI, - exactly like the first Windows did it with the MS-DOS.
The analogy is full...

Am I the only person here who hates Minecraft? I just don't get the appeal of it.

Minecraft is an endless game where kids waste their time trying to impress their friends who have no lives Very Happy

Totally agree.
"Oooh yay, I built a house out of [insert some minecraft term here]"

The only thing on minecraft I have respect for are the people who build computers out of blocks or whatever they are called. Ask Tcupis on 4Tech, he build a simple binary calculator with RAM and a CPU just using some block. I hate to say it but it was quite nice. At least that way you are actually learning about technology and not just using it.

I've never played MineCraft before, but I've heard it to be one of the hottest items out there if not the top! That just totally amazes me. I'm not into it, but if it is a games for all kids to play I'd vote for it if it is positive. Besides it allows them to play something good hopefully instead of doing something bad in their lives. That's the most important thing. I remember when I was just a kid and had nothing to play and messed around to the point where I dropped out of school and got into trouble with the law for years. So it is a good thing to have freedom to learn from your mistakes however I'm glad God saved me through my two real parents especially my mom Huong Thi Vu. Bless her for being the one who took me back in. I will always remember my real father Nguyen Binh Thuy. He taught me to program while he was with me by sending me through one of the top Ivy League colleges in the nation. I love my two real sisters Nguyen Khoa Thi and Nguyen Khoa Thuyen; they did it. They graduated officially like my two real parents wanted and now have a family of their own. Maybe one day it would be my turn through a Divine Intervention?

Honours: Nguyen Binh Thuy
Honours: Huong Thi Vu
