Re: Minecraft server for the SC community?

"Unzerdorv", because of this:
The name "Unzervalt" was given by its Human colonists; this meant "our world", likely originating from the German "unsere Welt".
(see http://wiki.uqm.stack.nl/Unzervalt)

"Dorf" is German for "village".

Re: SC2 Planet Graphics

Almost all of the graphics rendered when mining are generated prodecurally: a bit of code takes some fixed parameters (type of planet, location in truespace, location in hyperspace, things like that) and generates a texture based on that. The Earth is the only planet which has a pre-rendered texture...

Re: Games other than Star Control

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was quite allright. Good gameplay, but it didn't have the thought-provoking story that I was hoping for.

Re: How many posts must a man walk down..

Ugh, I hate signatures. On almost every forum, there's at least one guy who wastes more screen space with his signature than with most of his posts.

*shameless post to see if he has a signature set, himself*

Re: Google+

I have Hyves and Facebook, why do I need Google+? Hyves is a horrible mess. Allowing people to customize their entire page to their needs is nice and all, but it'll make your social network a chore to use.

Same. Too busy with some of my research. By research, I mean playing Mass Effect and reading some more of Alastair Reynolds' work. :)
