Yeah, but you don't know how many you have until you run out.  It's just easier to keep tabs on them in the quick bar.

What do you guys use for lighting your houses? I've been using torches, but I'm afraid they'll burn down my log cabin.

I ended up using "trunk" for the walls and roof, so it looks kind of poor, but for a first shelter, it isn't bad. It overlooks a frozen lake. I'm thinking of digging a basement. It's also located near a bunch of large mines.

Torches don't start fires.  The only thing that'll start your house on fire is if you make the flint and steel and start it on fire yourself, or let lava get to it.  Right now torches the only thing that add enough light without starting your house on fire (lava).

My house is lit by lava.

It is made of stone though.

Will carrying lava in a bucket hurt you or anything as I want to bring some to the surface. Also I love my new map I generated I found a cave it has a an underground river/waterfall system that rides all the way down to lava. It passed a bunch of red dust and diamonds. I only just started but I have more Diamonds than Iron.

Has anyone done anything interesting with Red Dust?

It's perfectly safe to carry, just take care not to catch on fire without water around.

And I've only just tried figuring out how to work with red dust, so nothing cool yet.

My ultimate plan is to have a lava moat near my base I ride running water to the bottom of the cave and have enough iron to build mine cart track and a powered mincart to push me back up again.

The red dust is capable of little more than simple circuits and simple circuit logic. Aside from setting up a simple multi-switch lock system, I don't see much potential for anything too fancy using electricity until an item appears that can be used to construct a Electronic Counter.

I wonder what would happen if you snorted redstone dust and stood on the switch.

Go to the minecraft forums, counters have been built with red ore. Even counters with displays, as impossible as that seems.

Anyone wanting some idea of just how big and awesome a really massive castle can be, have a look here.

I think the thing that makes that hardcore, is that he's not building it on the peaceful setting.  He still has to be weary of enemies, and continue to collect food to heal when hurt.  If I was building something as massive as that, I'd just set it to peaceful and not worry about the baddies.
