Latest thoughts/feelings worth sharing:
I have longed to fly through a computer with people since the advent of computing.
It's good to be home! <(^^ >)
I'm new to town, so I'm still just exploring. These are my initial ponderings
generated by my initial wanderings.
May be useful to newcomers.
I love botany. It encourages coming back often, and reinforces the idea that not only
this virtual plant, but also this whole virtual town, is worth returning to regularly in order to nurture and sustain it.
The chat is the watering hole around which everyone passes through at some point to say "hi".
Simple, but effective. Friendly, accepting, and supportive.
The bbj text-based forum, with the ability to post under different psuedonyms or no nym at all, is a perfectly
simple but effective text replacement of 4chan or reddit. Very nicely styled as well. Very stylish!
The ascii town map is awesome!!!1
Favorite commands (a tilde.town cheat sheet):
screen -d -r
screen creates a virtual terminal session in your terminal that can hold multiple terminal sessions inside it.
You can also detach and re-attach screen sessions from/to your current terminal session.
This is especially useful if your connection drops and ssh stops responding until you reconnect.
A screen session will still be saved, and available to reattach to your current terminal.
To start up the same screen session when you log back in, use the command screen -d -r,
which detaches any existing ongoing session, and reattaches it to your current terminal session so you can
pick up right where you left off before your session dropped.
vim is the text editor I like to use.
The vim -x command can be used to create an encrypted file.

How does the "wiki" program work? Is it a totally
What is the deal with minecraft? Is it really so popular?
What is the thing about it thats so great?
Is it just like Second Life, with a built in scripting language
so you can do anything? Or something like that?
Is there more to it?
