Squidwolf > Blog > 2013 > December

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,300 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 38 trips to carry that many people.

Well, that’s Christmas day over for another year! Still got New Year’s Eve coming up, which I will be spending with my boyfriend at my sister’s new house. So we’ve still got some celebrations to be had!

This year I spent Christmas with my boyfriend for the first time- we’ve been together for almost two years now and have been living together for over a year, so it was awesome to spend Christmas day with him and his family. 

Exposure13 was a massive success- we had our opening night on the 12th December and we had such a good turn out, and many of the artists got a lot of attention and interest in their work- maybe even some print sales!

I’m relieved that the exhibition is now done, but there’s still a lot to get done before I graduate- only a few months left now. I will be working next year primarily on a magazine I am launching for the university, along with two dissertations. Next year will be a little crazy! I also need to start preparing for leaving uni- getting job applications out, CVs written and where I’m gonna live sorted. 

I will do a more comprehensive post before the New Year I think. I felt like I just needed to write a little something on here as I’ve been neglecting pretty much everything other than the exhibition for the last few months- which means my blog has gotten a little dusty, along with my Flickr page and my personal photography… which I need to sort out and pick back up as soon as I can. I want to finish my 52 week project but I feel it’s hardly worth it now that I’ve gone so long without posting… but hey I can just consider it a …. very long holiday? 😛

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have something awesome planned for the New Year!

We are preparing to upgrade to Minecraft 1.7.2 but we are having difficulty ensuring compatibility with your missions & storyline systems, please be patient!

Woop! I’ve finally finished all my work for this semester. As usual I left it until the final week but its clear now that I just work that way, I get some of my best work out under the pressure of a looming deadline. Bryony’s mother & sister are coming today to see her photography exhibition (srsly, if you haven’t seen it yet, go see it!) so we got up early and cleaned the house.

The neighbours were shouting again, its something that is concerning both of us now because it seems to be happening more & more frequently. I thought of maybe going to talk to her & ask if she was ok but by the time I made my way out she was gone already, fiddlesticks.

This has been one busy week! Monday I was swamped with getting all of my uni work organised in an effort to make an attempt at finishing it. It started off as a nice day because I think when the sun is out during Winter time I dunno it just feels…epic, I can’t really explain it because I feel sad at the same time yet happy.

I spent all monday smashing through my first research paper & got it completed on time, amazing right?! I’m the sort of person which makes everyone who is a “time freak” nervous, I leave everything until the last minute and get everything finished within one 24 hour period and I’m convinced my best work comes out then.

Bryony’s photography exhibition opened this week & I’m really proud of what she managed to do, some really awesome work! Seriously if you are around Bolton near Market Place Shopping Centre at all before christmas you should head up there, grab yourself a Starbucks and go & check out the work. Although say for an unwanted guest it has been an awesome exhibition…I’m saying awesome a lot this post.

Right now I’m trying to get as much of my to do list finished as I can, I’m about halfway through my final two papers and then that is it for christmas! Rock on!

Transforming Experience 2.0.2 has just been deployed across the network, patch notes are available here.

In order to fix issues with Missions on Squidwolf Minecraft we have had to reset all player mission progress. As compensation for this we have credited every player who has logged in over the last 30 days with 500Hc, we apologise for this inconvenience but the result is a much more stable storyline experience…and free HazelCredits!

Fixes, changes and improvements

  • Several stages of the tutorial for new players on Squidwolf Minecraft have been changed or disabled due to errors.
  • HazelStore is once again operational.
  • We are pleased to introduce the first member of PSD (Potion Services Department) to Squidwolf Minecraft! Welcome, NinjaWaspKiller!
  • Very rarely during login, some player inventories would be put into an invalid state, and would prevent logs in the system from loading correctly. This has been resolved.

Hotfixes- The following items were resolved during previous maintenance periods with hotfixes:

  • An issue with the display of Faction territory was addressed.
  • Several WordPress installations were upgraded.
  • Welcome message on Squidwolf Minecraft was fixed.


I’m curious about how many people have tried to do this, it is from 4chan.

Edit: Due to the comments I am getting about this post and people clearly not understanding my sarcasm, DO NOT DO THIS! If you are stupid enough to think that this is real or I am being serious by posting this please be aware that this command will nuke your hard drive.
