Minecraft 1.12 and NETHER Map!

Hey, folks, Hotep proprietor Nigel here:

Minecraft has updated to 1.12 and we've gone CRAZY!  Crazy with mapping, that is.  Scalopd has just traveled farther than any of us in search of a woodland mansion, and that means we have a lot more map to explore in search of parrots and whatnot.

But ALSO, the Minecraft Map is accessible from the web-page again, AND we have added nighttime overworld views, and also the Nether!  Come stake your claim on Taphouse Minecraft, before all the great spots are taken!  Tour the giant Dobbshead!  Marvel at the creeper blast craters!  Farm for beetroot!  Its all here, and more.  See you on the inside.

Zoom in and see all the mysterious structures! Spot the giant Dobbshead!! See for yourself why we should NEVER be given jobs in urban planning. Link available on the main taphouse menu or here: happy orienteering!

Local ISP issues Grinch up Taphouse for the holidays

It would seem the happy elves at my ISP have decided to start some kind of upgrade work.  Probably girding their loins for all those X-Box One's connecting on X-mas day.  Instead they should be covering their asses in anticipation of X-Day!  Anyhow, we're gonna be on the NetSplit coaster for a while.  The management apologizes for any inconvenience, and offers you a 10% off IRC services coupon, redeemable anytime:

Zeppo booted off twitter...temporarily

On June 11 twitter retired v1 of it's API. You can read all about it HERE. Unfortunately, this has kicked Zeppo to the curb as he was still using v1 via XML. XML is no longer in use on twitter. (RSS and ATOM are dead now as well) JSON is the only applicable format you can use, and every app MUST use SSL (https) THERFORE until the whole script gets rewritten to use the new 1.1 API he will be off twitter. He is still on IRC for your amusement, but I dont expect him to be back on teh twitters before XDAY.

tl;dr: Twitter sux, but Zeppo will return soon
