    posted a message on BanManager | MySQL | phpMyAdmin - Doesn't show players names reads as binary code - please help

    You won't be able to use PhpMyAdmin to see the info you want. PhpMyAdmin is a tool used by developers and database administrators.


    You'll instead have to use some kind of web interface. It seems like you can find a web interface here: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/ban-management/pages/web-interfaces/


    If you're interested in knowing why the players are shown as the binary type within the database:

    The data in databases aren't meant to viewed by humans; their purpose is to store a huge amount of information in the most efficient way possible such that a program can easily access and modify said data. So rather than formatted times like "1:26 AM 11/2/2015", you'll see something like 1446456440 (this is called a unix timestamp which is the seconds since 1/1/1970 00:00:00).

    So, because Minecraft uses UUIDs to identify players since people can change their Minecraft username, the database can't store the player using their username but rather their unique ID. And these unique IDs are best stored as binary with a length of 16.

    posted a message on Alternative to while() loop?
    http://jd.bukkit.org...tScheduler.html

    Bukkit.getServer().getScheduler().scheduleSyncRepeatingTask(this, new Runnable(){
        @Override
        public void run() {
            //Repeating stuff
        }
    }, 0, 20);

    int scheduleSyncRepeatingTask(Plugin plugin, Runnable task, long delay, long period)
    Schedules a repeating task. This task will be executed by the main server thread.

    Parameters:
    plugin - Plugin that owns the task
    task - Task to be executed
    delay - Delay in server ticks before executing task
    period - Period in server ticks of the task (20 server ticks in one second)

    Returns:
    Task id number (-1 if scheduling failed)

    Do not use scheduleAsyncDelayedTask() if you need to use the Bukkit API. If you need to use the Bukkit API you have to use scheduleSyncRepeatingTask()

    Next time you should ask for Bukkit plugin help here, you get more help there.


    Never use an infinite loop unless it's in a thread completely separate from the Bukkit API

    posted a message on Server Creation Assistance
    For some computers, that's normal.

    When I was setting up a server on my computer, I could connect to it through localhost/private IP but not through my external IP and other people could still join.

    You can just ask someone else to try out the server for you.

    PS: There's another Java security fix update available (15)

    posted a message on Question? Where did the Harlem Shake start
    The Harlem shake is a dance that originally began in Harlem, New York, in 1981.

    Though starting in 1981, the Harlem shake became mainstream in 2001 when G. Dep featured the dance in his music video "Let's Get It".

    A band from New York City took the name of the dance and dubbed themselves Harlem Shakes. "Harlem Shake" is a song by Baauer, an American producer from Brooklyn, New York. The song was uploaded to YouTube on May 10, 2012, and went viral in February 2013

    "Harlem Shake" is a song recorded by American DJ and producer Baauer. It was released as a free digital download by Mad Decent imprint label Jeffree's on May 22, 2012

    In February 2013, a YouTube video set to "Harlem Shake" that developed into an internet meme. The media response to the meme helped increase the single's sales, as it reached number 12 on the US Dance/Electronic Songs chart.


    Harlem Shake is an Internet meme that went viral on YouTube in February 2013. The meme is in the form of a video that began being replicated according to a similar concept by many people.

    The art form of the meme was established in a video uploaded on February 2 by The Sunny Coast Skate, five teenagers from Queensland, Australia. The teenagers' video, in its turn, was a follow-up to a video by a YouTube comedy vlogger named Filthy Frank featuring a part where several costumed persons danced to the song "Harlem Shake" by Baauer.

    tl;dr:
    A dance came out in 1981.
    A band took the name of the dance and called them selves the "Harlem Shakes" and a producer called Baauer made the song "Harlem Shake".
    Then some teenagers decided to make a youtube video of themselves dancing to the song and the youtube video became popular. The meme did NOT start in Harlem.

    The dance and song came from New York and the meme came from Australia I guess
