Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

While I'm posting Youtube videos of stuff I'm slightly too young to remember, I sure remember this:

But I don't think I ever saw this:

[wavy lines]That was such an awesome show.[/wavy lines]

Terraria Sale!

If anyone's interested - and has too much time on their hands - Terraria is $2.49 on Steam today, 75% off.

And it's a bargain at full price, if you like exploring and shaping new worlds, so at that price it's a steal.

The Law Of Conservation Of Stuff

Doesn't apply in Terraria-land.  I rescued the wrench wench (the Mechanic) from captivity and can now start building fancy stuff.  I have a bomb factory (churns out a new bomb every ten seconds, very handy since they cost 5 silver coins each) and I just tried setting up a little fountain outside Pixy Base.

And turned it off before it flooded my house: More water comes out the outlet pump than goes in the inlet pump.

I can think of some interesting uses for that...

I tunnel my way up into my first floating island, cunningly avoiding the circling harpies...

Tonight we mine in Hell!

Full Purples And Sharked Up

I've been playing Terraria again.

Today I've managed to knock off the first two bosses (the Eye of Cthulhu and the Eater of Worlds), score a full set of Demonite items (sword, axe, hammer, pickaxe, bow, helmet, armour, greaves), and have enough ore left over from my mining expedition to afford a Minishark ("Half shark, half gun, completely awesome.")

Skeletron awaits.

For those who haven't played it, Terraria is what Nethack would be if it were reimagined as a 2D platformer around 1992.*  I haven't yet got to the neat parts where you can build mechanical widgets like the obsidian generator or the goldfish dispenser: I have to rescue the game's wrench wench from the Dungeon where Skeletron stands guard, and pre-shark, I got splatted fairly quickly.

Update: Twenty minutes later, Skeletron is no more.  What a difference full-auto makes!  Particularly if you're upgrading from an axe...

* Though it would have been rather impractical the way it's actually implemented - with a large world, the game uses around 600MB of RAM, which would have cost something like $20,000 at that time.

It's Another Language

NooooOoOo 12/9 (Fri - 8:25): Did you DG summon the AgentBrand? Because when he said last drop, he also said badger, so I was kinda thinking he meant the Frozen Rose. He also said it after the last Zenovia went down too...
Mappy 12/9 (Fri - 8:50): Anyone with The Beast, remember to get your Fresh Fruit today.
Cactusshin 12/9 (Fri - 9:09): No--it's just a freak coincidence. Once my WKai goes down, I plan on summoning Jasticus, Fayt, and Zenovia for my own ultra badger.
