    I can only imagine how difficult updating to 1.6.x will be for you with all of this new launcher stuff

    How goes All Traps & Trips and their smoke-and-mirror statements?

    Back in April, they said if we signed up for phone service, they could escalate a request to get us DSL. This sounded like a con, but they assured us that, regardless of the outcome, we would not be billed. Fast forward to May, not only did the escalation not work, they billed us. We called and explained, and they cancelled the service and the bill. Then later in June, we received a "final bill," which we thought was weird since they cancelled it. Earlier this month, we got notice from a collections agency. AT&T has a lot of nerve demanding money for a cancelled service they agreed twice not to charge me for, especially when it's not even the service I wanted.

    I called them on Saturday to try to sort it out. They lady I spoke with was actually very kind. She said she contacted their collections department and made a manual balance adjustment to zero out the account. I guess we'll see.

    Did you see my YouTube video of the first working state of my update? I've been in contact with MALFunction84 and you can expect a release within the next week or so.

    Yes, it's true. kingrunes has been working to recreate the mod on his own. I guess that means I can post this:

    Hey is it easy to upload an source of this mod so someone can recreate it for time when you cannot do this mod right now because of the Internet connection

    See the FAQ in the OP.

    Quote from daangelo29

    So why haven't you done that yet? If my dad was you, he would've done a lot more than reporting to the Commission. Likely something a lot worse. ;)

    I only just now became aware of the Commission.

    Is there any way possible for you to get better internet connection? Thank you for continuing to work on it.

    I am trying to get AT&T to give me wireless service for the cost of their DSL service until they get their act together. If they don't give me that, I am reporting them to the Public Service Commission.

    waitso malfunction... i always wondered. what do you actually work as

    Web developer.

    Quote from AC1

    That really really really suck man. I wanna hug you. No decent internet is horrible.

    You taught us a valuable lesson of always checking local providers before moving to a new area.

    Yes, please learn from my mistake. While you're at it, make your outrage known to AT&T.

    Would it be possible for me to putter about with the code, and attempt to make an unofficial update with your permission ofc (client side only is what i plan for now)

    Quote from MCforfreeuser

    MALfunction is starting from scratch. The old source code is useless thanks to Jeb and Dinnerbone.

    He's quite right. You're welcome to start from scratch like me.

    Quote from 52775

    I understand that, and what I'm suggesting is that, while you are at work, you seek out any and all resources you think you might need, save them to a file, and bring them home on a flash drive, independently of your internet access. This should allow you to load them at home while you are coding, whenever you should need them. I understand this could be a large amount of pages, and navigating them could be less than easy, but they would at least be available while you are coding.

    Identifying "any and all" is easier said than done. Things like Forge and Minecraft are moving targets. The resources I would need are changing faster than I can keep up over the Sneakernet.

    aside from living a sad life without Somnia im fine :D thanx

    btw...have you ever considered asking other modders to help you with the development and the internet related things?

    Many people have offered to collaborate with me, but that's tough to do, especially without an Internet connection.

    Nobody can help with the Internet situation. I'm thinking seriously of getting the government involved, or at least to find out what my options are. This is getting ridiculous. 7 months.

    Quote from TerraFreeze

    wait then install a small wifi pci card in your pc and it can be wifi enabled.
    but maybe a hotspot on your phone wouldnt be to fast

    Yeah, that and I'm not actually paying for the hotspot feature. I don't want to tick off my cell provider. It's all I have left.

    Quote from 52775

    So, as I understand it, you have full internet access at work, and need a set of online resources. Do you have a flash drive? What's preventing you from locating and saving any webpages with needed information while you're at work, bringing them home on a flash drive, and loading them up on your home computer? It wouldn't work for video resources, and you won't be able to follow links, but everything else should be available.

    If nothing else, you could try writing notes to a .txt...

    I've actually tried that, but much of my research is reactionary. I'll code for a bit, hit a snag, go research, then try a few things in code... Can you imagine how frustrating it would be to have to wait a whole day between switching from coding to research? Trust me, it sucks. I keep losing my place in the code or forgetting what I was researching. I need to be able to do both at once.

    Quote from Drocpir

    Have you thought about DishNet? 40 bucks a month but at least you will have a solution to the internet problem for now. Also @ the bottom of their site it states this.....

    *DISH is able to offer government subsidized High-Speed Internet to a limited number of eligible households as part of the 2009 Recovery Act. If you live in a rural area within the Eastern United States you might be eligible for savings on High-Speed satellite Internet.* This may help if you live out in the boonies. Won't hurt to ask them about it. :P

    If that doesn't work you can also try Hughsnet and DirectTV

    Hope you get back soon. Missing Somnia <<<<keep wanting to spell it somonia lol.

    Yeah, I don't mention them by name, but this question is addressed in the Special FAQ in the OP. That $40 price is if you already have DishTV, which I don't. Satellite internet is getting better, but the price is way too high for what you get. I will check around some more, but I've yet to find a good deal.

    Quote from Nox13last
    I don't really think I have anything to suggest in regards to the development or framework of Somnia. Don't really have any ideas for the so-called "cart before the horse", I don't know the first thing about Java, and my knowledge of operating systems only goes as up to Windows 7.

    However, I have one last query before my contributions to this thread go entirely offtopic:
    Do you have cellphone providers that give you sattelite SIM dongles? They're like wireless dongles, but you put a SIM card into it (the very same one you'd find in a cellphone), and it connects you wirelessly to the internet, from anywhere. With a decent carrier contract, it'd be expensive, but at least it'd give you a connection to the outside world until your ISP actually gets stuff done.

    You mean like a Mi-Fi? AT&T tried to get me to sign up for that, but the limiting factor there is cell coverage. Coverage in my area is beyond terrible. Also, I refuse to pay them more money for a slower connection with a lower monthly cap.

    I've tried using USB tethering on my Android phone (running CM7), but it doesn't work. My PC doesn't recognize it as a network device, even though I thought I had all the drivers in place. Apparently I'm not the only one with that problem. Funny thing is, I can use my phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot, but the only computer I have that's capable of connecting to Wi-Fi is the Chromebook, which of course I can't use to develop.

    The Fates have conspired against me.

    How long do you figure until you have internet, and are back on this puppy?

    No estimates from AT&T. I really wish I could give my money to someone else.

    Tried asking around, and I found out a friend of mine has a version of Ubuntu called "ChrUbuntu" in his Chromebook. He relied on the information in the links below to get it to work:

    http://chromeos-cr48...ouble-bits.html

    By the looks of things, it's going to take tons of effort to install the OS. Now I know why I went against Chomebooks in the first place. -_-

    Yeah, I'm really not interested in chasing that rabbit.


    Quote from TerraFreeze

    personally i dont think we need another os...
    a chromebook in my eyes, i just dont know how to justify buying one

    Good thing I didn't buy the CR-48. Chromebooks are super cheap, though. (Except the Pixel.)

    I've always wondered if you multi-boot in a Chromebook. Can you? Someone has once offered to sell his old Acer Chromebook. I've immediately turned it down thinking I can't find any purpose for a Chromebook, but I never really bothered to know if I can install Windows in it.

    Scope creep!

    I think most Chromebooks have an ARM processor, so it can't run x86 Windows. Maybe it could run Windows 8 RT <shudder>.

    Hey, do you have a laptop? If you do, why not head down to a library or internet cafe and do the programming there?

    I have a CR-48, but it can't really be used for development.

    Right, fortunately those are easy to find.
    For packet handling tutorial, I first got to look at this one and then this one.
    Frankly I use proxy system instead of effective side check, but whatever.
    You probably have read them already, but I just want to make sure.
    I also know of a method called sendPacketToAll or something close in PacketDispatcher.
    Anyhow, PacketDispatcher is the class to look at first.

    Simulating a world might use vanilla-looking packet exchange between server and client, I guess...it sounds tough but interesting. I'd guess vanilla packets are crypted...

    Thanks, man. This is exactly the kind of thing I would like to be able to access while I'm at home coding. As it is, I probably shouldn't read this at work... but I'm gonna. :)
