Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

GLA Minecraft server launches today



In the evening sometime (GMT, that is – if you’re in Amerikaa that’ll probably be late morning to early afternoon). We’re going to be running the RPG immersion pack from Feed the Beast, whose main constituent is DivineRPG. The aim of this mod is to keep the vanilla Minecraft experience intact, but it adds a series of alternate dimensions that slowly increase in difficulty, with tiered drops and resources for those who want a meatier game experience.

If you want to play, then go to the feed the beast website and download the launcher for yourself (then select ‘RPG immersion’ as the mod pack you want to launch). You might also want to take a look at the wiki page to get a good look at what’s in stock. Note: the server will be pirate-friendly but I have no idea how you’d make FTB work on your pirate copy of Minecraft.

See you all tomorrow for autism and technical difficulties!

Love, Cats

Podcast ep 26 delayed significantly

Basically, I told Adobe Audition to save the file and it just… didn’t. It only saved the first 48 minutes of a 3 hour edit. I’d estimate I’ve lost at least 6 hours of work, if not more, and I have to go to Leeds tomorrow so I don’t have time to re-edit it. I had the entire thing edited and was onto the mastering stage.

I’d like to apologize for the inconvenience, and also take this time to curse Adobe for making such fucking shit software.

Love, Cats

Podcast reboot records this Sunday (the 28th)

July 28th, 3PM BST\10AM EDT\7AM PDT\4PM eurotime. This is what Wolfram says, but these times might be off by an hour or two due to daylight savings. Make sure to double-check what the time is in your local time, and if you give me corrections I will alter that.

Starting with this podcast, I will be limiting the maximum number of participants in podcasts to 7 people. I feel like the quality of the podcasts has suffered simply because there are too many people trying to talk at once, and often the quieter of us get drowned out or interrupted and don’t get a chance to speak. If more than 7 people join then I’ll see if we can work out amongst ourselves who has the best chemistry, and potentially kick some people off. Sorry in advance for this but it’s my hope that it will make for a better podcast.

Love, Cats
