Minecraft is interesting. Dan mentioned …

Minecraft is interesting. Dan mentioned a few times that he has a Minecraft server and when I saw the headlines today that it has sold over 1 million copies I had to have a look.

How’d I do? Well, thanks to the tutorial below I managed to survive my first day. I built a craft table, shovel, torches, stone pick and barricaded myself inside a cave while the zombies roamed outside.

Now to figure out what to do next!

Edit: if you can’t get Minecraft to run on your Mac, try the following after unzipping it in Downloads:

chmod +x ~/Downloads/

The site where I found that useful nugget of info is gone now so posting it here as a reminder!
