comment I've set off some TNT, what should I do?
I would not expect reverting level.dat to have any effect. level.dat stores your location, inventory, and world seed, but does not store the world chunks itself (which are what contains the TNT).

comment How can I provide natural light under a roof?
Lava will not shine downward like sunlight does. If the platform is more than 13 blocks above the water, this won't light the water at all.

@Nottinylil: Ah, but now the next person having this question has this answer. Does your script perhaps have fewer quirks than mine?

comment How quickly does sugar cane grow?
The occasional bookcase or cake? — The thing here is that this is running all the time, and I've arranged so that I run over the drops whenever I arrive at my base from a railway. Thus I gather materials without needing to take any action. At that amount of inattention, this much cane collection is just right. — Also, if you think this is too much, you haven't seen my cactus farm (which goes into the same collection system). If you like, check it out on my server at mc.switchb.org!

Yes, but recognize that that's for one plant.

comment How to avoid sand/gravel blocks to break when using in Minecraft mechanisms?
It probably has to do with the interaction of the differing update rates of redstone wiring, piston motion, and entity motion.

comment How to avoid sand/gravel blocks to break when using in Minecraft mechanisms?
That's going to depend on at least how tall your tower of sand is. To reliably not break sand, you have to wait until the tower has completely settled before pushing it up again. I'm pretty sure that pushing a simple tower will always break at least one block otherwise, because there's always going to be some split-point where the sand has had a little chance to fall but you just occupied its block with more sand. (On the other hand, maybe there's some slop in the sand-landing algorithm that would make that work. You'll have to find out by experiment.)

Well, d'oh! The answers using a pair of repeater lines out of phase are much better all around.

comment Anti-aliasing in Minecraft?
@Jeff Atwood: I expect that Minecraft renders every water block's top as a separate polygon, so it would be affected by polygon AA.
