Reasons why I want user-controlled spawner blocks, even if it’s just in creative mode:

1) Squids de-spawn when you’re not looking at them
2) I want a room full of squids
3) Even if I add a cubic metric butt-ton of them before the last save, I’m scared they’ll go away before my adventurers get there
4) There are other creatures I want in my chambers that de-spawn at the slightest provocation.

You have to cross the corridor

A happy sun on the wall

...that watches you

And the door just shut behind you...

It's a long way

Thanks a bunch, Notch

So, you’ve all heard by now - or all of you that care about Minecraft - that they’ve updated Minecraft again with taller worlds. Yay. And jungles. Yay. And massive trees. Yay. And pet cats. Yay.

And I now have to re-make my adventure map in progress because I’m that gosh-darn obsessive-compulsive.

Boo.

It’s times like this that I wish Minecraft had a copy-paste mode. Or mass replace commands like the maps in World

89.8

That’s my weight, this morning. I’m finally down to sniffing distance of my target weight.

Here’s my regime - or what passes for
