You know what would be great? An actual release. Or at least a release date that says: come hell or high water, 1.8 is being released on this day, whatever state it is in.
Yeah, I, too, would rather have a glitchy and unfinished update now than a polished and bugfree one two days later.

But you did get a glitchy and unfinished update, just under the pretense that it's a pre-release. And there will still be bugs when it is eventually actually released.

I just don't understand the huge departure from what they've done in the past. Or why they couldn't have the pre-release available from the launcher, like they said they were going to.

Yes, and it wrecked my minecraft. Not gonna do that again.

And not everyone wants to play glitchycraft, so it shouldn't be an official update.

Let me put it to you this way:

If they had released the pre-release as an official update, all the whiny kids who don't know what a beta means would flood the minecraft forums crying about how broken it was, the first pre-release had some game breaking and map destroying bugs, which have been fixed, the list of bugs has been severely decreased and the official release will probably come in 1 or 2 days, then we'll have a mostly bug free playable game for a while, and those kids won't complain as much.

Personally I'd like pre-releases every week before an update, it's a great way to find bugs and try out new stuff before the masses, and we help them release a better product :D

Did you update?
Might also be the Minecraft login server being slow as hell.

The farm is growing plenty of wheat and a few melons. We've upgraded the crappy little farmhouse to something a bit more presentable too.
I figure we need to make a few roads, one from the farm to some kind of town center or plaza area I figure. Another very important road is one to the default spawn place.

For those wondering why we wandered so far from spawn... well, we didn't. The server crashed early on and our spawn position changed. I guess it's some procedure that rebuilds the map. I've seen it happen before as well.

Anyway, if you guys would like some bread, stop by the farm and harvest up. Take some melon too since it helps top off your bar.
We'll try to make some regular deliveries to the main town area. For now, help yourselves and of course replow/replant as needed.
