comment How do I persuade the guards at Northwatch Keep to let me rescue Thorald Gray-Mane during “Missing In Action”?
OK, good to know that's not the problem. I haven't checked their farm yet; maybe there will be something there.

One more thing, anyone know if the chests are there even if you don't have the map?

Also, are these inside containers, or sitting about in the world? If they're in the world, what do they look like?

comment What are the consequences of stealing?
This is important -- you need not get caught for there to be consequences. That said, I've stolen 30k+ and only had one set of "hired thugs" come after me so far.

comment How do I persuade the guards at Northwatch Keep to let me rescue Thorald Gray-Mane during “Missing In Action”?
When I first got to Whiterun, I was asked by someone which side I was on, Battle-born or Greymane. I said something like "I don't have a side." I wonder if I'd said I was on the Battle-born side if the guard there would be friendly to me, and let me walk him out? Alternatively, maybe there is something you can steal from the Battle-born house that proves you have the right to take him? I feel like there must be a peaceful way to solve this quest.

comment How do I make money efficiently?
I've also found Transmute there; it must be static. This is an awesome method when combined with pickpocketing -- you can launder all those stolen gems into not-stolen jewelery. Also note there are 3 vendors that stock iron ore in Whiterun, plus the general goods store sometimes has some.

comment What are some designs for “safe” melon farms?
It was my impression you'd have to wait until the stem was adult before placing the glass block? Or does it grow with a transparent block above it?

comment What are some designs for “safe” melon farms?
I have my own (simpler, but using the two-piston concept) melon farm, and slices can still fall onto the stem block occasionally and be lost. So while this doesn't solve that problem, you cease to care because you've got more melon slices than you could ever need in no time.

comment Error with Double-Dabble decoder
What does it give as output for each input from 0 up? The image above isn't complete so it isn't necessarily sufficient to help you. Maybe it's not adding three, but turning on the bits for three?

comment Where's all this light coming from?
I'm guessing there is lava down those shafts to kill the monsters? That generates light.

comment Can lightning destroy rails in Minecraft?
This is unlikely to be the cause because it happened long ago, but I know I lost a bunch of rails in the MCRegion conversion. Did you just update Minecraft from a really old version?

comment As of 1.8, do sheep regrow their wool?
@Cyclops they can't be stuck in a cave, they always spawn at the highest available (opaque?) level.

Do you have a reference for this answer? I've not seen this behavior in 1.8.

comment What items can be farmed fully automatically?
Don't think you can farm eggs quite like that any more, too many chickens in a small area and they supposedly start to die, so you end up making raw chicken and feathers instead of eggs. Seen at minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Egg#Trivia
