Neck-deep in computers since my first Apple II+, I've done just about everything in this field.

Currently I'm having fun setting up and running various kinds of servers, and developing web sites both professionally and for kicks.

I recently provided Apple II floppy disk conversion services to a college in the US (pro bono).

I run a modded-but-no-downloads-required co-operative Battlefield 1942 server called Tanks 'n Planes Unlimited, which you can find via http://jdrgaming.com.

I also have a computing blog: http://boot13.com.

My consulting business: http://jrc-core.com.

Will do. It just feels kinda weird to do that.

Fixed it! Here's what I did: Copied 'world' folder from server folder to single player 'saves' folder. Opened the world from the 'saves' folder in MCEdit. Opened the 'World Info' dialog in MCEdit (Ctrl-I), then ran the 'Repair regions' tool. Saved the world. Ran the most recent Minecraft client, and the world appeared in the world list (yay!) but said that it needed to be converted. Opened the world in single player mode from there and it converted, saying 'Converting to Anvil'. Copied the world back to the server folder and ran it in multiplayer mode. Everything was back to normal!

@Allov: Works okay in MCEdit. I'm able to open the world I copied from the server folder to the single player saves folder, and the world looks fine, along with my player, spawnpoint and all my stuff. This world isn't even listed in the Minecraft single player world list. Any idea what I can do from here?

@Zoredache: Tried it. Copied the world folder to the single player data saves folder but the game doesn't even list it, so there's no way to load it.

I just plop the new server JAR into the same folder. If I put it in a new folder, presumably I would then also need to copy the 'world' subfolder from the old folder to the new one, right?

Vanilla. I'm trying to avoid using bukkit if possible. Although I'm starting to understand why most server admins have given up and are running bukkit. Why are the vanilla server tools so awful/nonexistent?

comment How can I increase Skyrim's Volume?
Oh, I can crank the volume plenty loud enough, but then everything else is way loud as well. I was finally able to make it work by setting my Creative X-Fi speaker setup to 7.1, unsyncing it from the Windows Sound Control Panel, and setting the latter's speaker configuration to headphones. Weird, but it works and doesn't seem to impact other games negatively. This is on XP.

I tried this and it didn't make any difference. Tried 1.5, 2.0 and 3.0. No change. Possibly a recent patch rendered this fix unworkable?

comment Red-Dead-Redemption: Is there anyway to “win” the side “trap” missions?
@Maslow: yeah, but their incessant chatter gets annoying. Squishing them on train tracks even gets you an achievement, or helps to get one.
