If your looking to play Minicraft or a few of the mods that are out there, you can check out playminicraft.com.
Right now it is pretty basic with some mods supported. I will be working on a more advanced version over the next few days that will give mod developers more space on the site to talk about their mods, and maybe take donations.
I feel that Notch and the modders deserve the credit for their time. If you are a mod developer and want your mod added or if it has been added and you would like it removed or updated email me at email@example.com and I can do that. Also I can host the mods on the web if you do not have a site. You will get full credit and once I finish the new version of the site you will get even more area.
I have already started to get many hits on the site and people are loving the different mods.
so what version did you join minecraft in, beta, alpha, or further back into infdev or indev?
It was before that. I remember steves just bouncing around randomly and you could dig through the world and fall out. There were only 4 blocks.
The funny part is I remember showing it to a friend that night and we built castles and were telling each other what they looked like. I remember talking about how cool it would be to have multiplayer, like a few months later Notch started adding it.
I found it on stumbleupon just as a random thing. I never knew it would have taken off like this. So yeah I came in way before alpha, and I got Alpha the first day.
