This is a friendly reminder that we have two lovely Minecraft servers—one based in the US, and another in the UK. You should join one! What have you to lose other than precious, precious time?
The US server lives at 220.127.116.11:25566 . It's been operated by some fantastic community members for nearly four years, and includes two easy Survival worlds, two pure Survival worlds, and a Creative world. Drop by the forums for more info, including engrossing Google-powered maps like this one:
