comment How do I get rid of these dark rectangles on the screen in Bioshock Infinite
You really should accept this answer, it keeps popping up to the front page as a question with no accepted answer.

comment How do I Create an Ender Portal?
The corresponding names would be 199 = end_portal, 120 = end_portal_frame. For 120 you will need to add the metadata tags to indicate the eyes are in the frame.

comment Powering a Redstone Lamp on top of a Piston
Not the OP, but here you go Here is a copy of the world so you can inspect it rapidshare.com/share/8E9F2291940D8376C8E58CADFEDC2158, one pressure plate extends, one turns it on, and one retracts it. Just wire the 3 ciructs in to a daylight sensor and some comparators so only one ciruct is on at a given time and you are good to go.

comment Minecraft LAN; timeout after 30 seconds
Does it happen if someone else logs in to the same world, what if they go to the XYZ of where your friend spawns? You said you have multiple instances, does your friend get disconnected if he connects to a different instance on the same server?

comment My village appears to be a ghost town. How do I get my people back?
This did not cover why the village suddenly died. Zombie infections spread, so if a single zombie gets in (or spawns in a dark corner) he can kill a villager which turns to 2 which turns to 4 and very quickly your whole town can turn in to a town of zombies.

comment How did my objects disappear?
Next time you want to do this build a "coffin" by just making a small 1x1x2 room in the wall and block off the wall behind you. That will prevent any creepers from walking up to you and blowing up while you are away (keeps skeletons and zombies from bothering you too).

Yes, chests have a blast resistance of 12.5 where stone has a blast resistance of 30. So a it very easily could be destroyed while the surrounding stone was not.

For plain stone a creeper explosion will dig out a 3x3 hole with potentially a 1x1 hole in the center of that, and that is only if the creeper is directly next to it (like the floor). Each material has a blast resistance factor that determines how many blocks are destroyed for a explosion.

Or if it is not a cave the walls could be made of a blast resistant material, that explains the single hole in the ground.

comment Can you connect to LAN worlds with the same IP address as you?
Well, they likely have the same external IP address if they are on the same LAN (whatsmyip.com will show the same IP on both computers) but they will have different LAN ip's visible from ipconfig from the command line.

@YoungGuilo items on the ground disappear after a period of time, they could of all easily dispersed during the two hours he was away if the explosion early after he left. Also he said it "seemed" to move, if the "room" is really a cave it would be difficult to tell the difference between naturally occurring walls and what the explosion left behind.

comment How do I duplicate blocks?
I don't doubt it worked when you where playing single player, I am saying it will not work on multiplayer. For one thing you can't "Save and Quit" multiplayer, only "Disconnect"

comment How do I duplicate blocks?
Note this only works on single player, you are exploiting the fact that the player data gets saved on X but not map data. You would have to restart the server to get a similar effect (basically you are inducing a "map rollback" while keeping your inventory from before the rollback.)

comment Should I take “One Mind” if I want to continue to play?
I don't think the chain effects can be unlocked until after you purchase "one mind"

I have never encountered that, but I am still using the version in the DW20 pack, that might be something from the newest patches (or a old patch)

comment What is 'awesomium_process.exe'?
@Krazer but don't leave out the 2nd half of the story, it was a false positive (And only by Norton) and ever seance they started signing the exe it no longer shows up as a false positive.

comment How often should my troops use Overwatch?
How do you know the aliens are not moving if you have not seen them yet? I can turn invisible, but it only works when no one is looking and my eyes are closed.
