comment What's the safest way to light up a dangerous area?
That's a good way to burn yourself alive, as well as ruin any abandoned mineshafts.

comment What tools do you use to help you build structures?
@RavenDreamer, yes, because it's simpler that way. Also, it allows you to choose whether you want the diameter to be even or odd. If you want it even, you can use the sides twice, if odd, only once.

comment What tools do you use to help you build structures?
It's up to you really, if you fill in blocks that are red, you'll get a solid 1/8 sphere. If you fill in the white blocks, you'll get a sphere cavity. You can also use just the first plan as a circle of a given radius. As I said, I use my own tools, so it makes enough sense for me.

comment Legal ways of playing old games that aren't for sale any longer
For older PC games some companies are smart enough to re-release them for very low prices (I got the entire Commander Keen pack for $5 on Steam).

comment How can my friends and I improve our tactics in Left 4 Dead 2?
I found my teams did best when we moved quickly close together. Person on point should always be checking the person at the rear, and people at the rear should always be clearing the way for the person on point. Roles will change as you move, and you should never allow yourselves to be significantly split up.

comment Fixing permanently dead redstone torches in Minecraft?
I've had this issue on both single and multiplayer. Occasionally it's persisted beyond simply exiting to the menu, so whenever I run into the issue, I quit minecraft completely and restart.

comment What does backdoor mean in strategy games like DotA or LoL?
It should also be noted for LoL that you can only kill subsequent buildings by having destroyed a building before it. The recent patch has removed turrets destroyed from the scoreboard, despite the fact that the only way to win is by killing turrets and that any character kills are incidental to good pushing strategy. I once won a match where my team went 10-53 because the other team couldn't kill a single turret, but could kill other heros.

comment What does backdoor mean in strategy games like DotA or LoL?
It should be noted for LoL that many players frown upon "backdooring" because they feel it's not a fair fight (personal experience from pushing the crap out of teams with Master Yi). Oftentimes an unbalanced creep push will be called backdooring because everyone else is fighting elsewhere, although this is a misnomer, as a real backdoor requires that no creeps be present.

comment Can snow fall on half-steps?
I've added a third pseudo-question, I hope it's considered relevant enough to this question. If not, I will remove it and create a separate question for it.

hopefully the added question will not change the question too much, if so, I will ask as a separate question.
