Update on My Project

Image
  Image source: wccftech.com R emember a few days ago when I mentioned that I would soon be developing the first ever interstellar VPN? Well, it turns out that in order to begin that, I will first need to do something much more complicated. On Earth, most VPNs work by routing your internet traffic through other servers. This means that if I want to develop an interstellar VPN like GalaxySafe, I must first establish a large network infrastructure of servers spread throughout the galaxy. This network will be called the StellarMesh. I plan on using JSON for the StellarMesh by creating a different JSON file for each celestial body that I want to include. This may sound easy, but it will probably take awhile. I want to cover at least three, maybe four solar systems, including the one we live in. Each JSON file would contain information about each celestial body. A crucial piece of information I would need to include for each body is the presence or absence of a server. I will specify whethe

Happy 15th Birthday, Minecraft!

  Image source: insider-gaming.com T oday (May 10, 2024) is a very special day for many Minecraft players. It is the fifteenth anniversary of the game! So, to celebrate, I thought I would write a blog post about it. Minecraft's development began on May 10, 2009 by a Swedish game developer named Markus Persson, better known as Notch. The game was released for the first time a week later on May 17. Because of this, consider the occasion to be a week-long celebration. Notch was the founder of Mojang Studios. Unfortunately, in 2014, Minecraft and Mojang Studios were acquired by Microsoft, and now we no longer receive very good feature additions. The reason why we no longer get very good features is because Minecraft used to be much more of an indie game (Notch could wake up one day and decide to add a person in a frog suit), but now it is owned by a much larger company. Essentially, there are more people now who must all agree on adding a particular feature, rather than a small group.

So I'm Working On a Project...

  Image source: livescience.com A  few days ago when I was playing the Galacticraft mod on Minecraft, I began to think a lot about space, celestial bodies, and advanced technology. I really wanted to do something related to space in real life, so since I can't actually go there, what if I was to make a VPN that can route internet traffic through other planets, moons, and even stars? That's right, I'm working on developing the first ever interstellar VPN. It will be in the form of a Chrome extension, and it will be distributed completely for free. I probably won't be able to publish it to the Chrome Web Store because I highly doubt Google would accept it, but rest assured that I will still provide a download link on my website. I can't help but wonder why nobody has developed an interstellar VPN yet. Maybe nobody has thought about it, maybe they don't think it's possible. However, I am very confident that it is indeed possible, as anything can be accomplished

Tired of Losing in Hypixel BedWars? Check Out These Helpful Tips!

  Image source: lunarclient.com W e all love a good game of Minecraft BedWars, especially on the popular Hypixel server. However, anyone who's played BedWars on Hypixel knows that it's very hard to win a game. So, in today's post, I will present to you a few BedWars tips that I have been using for the past several months. Fireballs Fireballs are very OP items in BedWars. These items look like fire charges, and they can be used for a variety of purposes, but I will mention the two best ones below: Knocking Enemies Into the Void: This is probably the best use fireballs have. Many BedWars players use wool to bridge to other islands, since it only costs 4 iron ingots for 16 wool. However, wool's biggest weakness is its flammability and extremely low blast resistance, meaning it is no match for fireballs. When you see an enemy player approaching, quickly throw a fireball at them. Try to aim for slightly behind the player (assuming you are calling the direction they are bridg

How the Soviet Union Actually Fell

Image
  Image source: nytimes.com A bout a year ago, I wrote a post entitled  The Truth About Russia , where I addressed some misinformation and misconceptions about Russia. If you haven't read that post already then feel free to take a look. Now, in this post that you are reading right now, I would like to cover another topic related to Russia, and that is the fall of the Soviet Union. We've all read about it in history books, but it's important to note that just because a history book says an event happened a certain way does not mean it is accurate. Without any further ado, I will tell you the story of how the Soviet Union actually fell. Between the 1920s and 1960s, the Soviet Union was a communist country populated and ruled by humans. If you don't know what communism is, it is essentially a political and economic system where the government owns everything. The civilians of a communist country do not own anything themselves; their stuff is instead owned by the government

My Biggest Pet Peeve

  HOW DOES ANYBODY SEE A PC IN THIS??? H ello readers. In today's post, I will be talking about something that has been bothering me for months. You can probably tell what it is by the image and caption above. I will get straight to the point without any further ado. I watch a lot of Minecraft YouTube videos, often where the content creator will use extremely high-quality graphics or shaders in Minecraft. When they do this, the game will often lag (what I mean is that the frames per second drop down to less than 20), and they will joke by saying that their "PC is about to explode". However, sometimes, they will show a clip of what they are calling a PC, but obviously is not: that weird box that you see in the image above. How can somebody even label that as a PC? It is beyond words how unintelligent it is to call an item a PC when it clearly isn't. Take a good look at the item in the image. You can clearly see that it has no screen, so even if it somehow could process

If You Receive This Email, Delete It Immediately

  Image source: cnn.com E mail has been a very useful tool throughout the years. It allows users to easily send and receive letters without the hassle of purchasing stamps, waiting several days, or worrying about the letter getting lost in the mail. It allows users to send letters over the internet; in fact, the "E" in "email" actually stands for "electric." Another feature of email is sending file attachments. This is similar to how you would send an additional document or item along with the letter in postal mail. This means that with the power of email, you can send a much larger variety of attachments than you can in physical mail; such as videos (if they aren't too long), music in the form of MP3 or WAV files, and even the subject of today's post: code scripts. In the world of programming or even computers in general, a script often refers to a file containing code, which can usually be executed or run when the user opens the file. Scripts can
