Recent as of Tuesday, January 31, 2023 - For those of us who've been here this long, it's a bit surreal to think that this day has arrived. It's certainly a day to sit back and reflect on the last decade and to look forward and see what the next has in store.
Ten years ago today, on January 31, 2013, Sean came up with the word "Nosiphus". Within a week, it was the name of the organization as a whole. To think this name has now been part of our lives for ten years is bizarre to say the least. But, you may ask, where did the word even come from?
Nosiphus takes its name from a build constructed in Sean's first long-term Minecraft world. Said world save has not existed since 2013, nor do screenshots, but memories do. Sean's class (which was also Matthew and Wyatt's) was covering the Mt. Vesuvius explosion of 79 AD. As January 2013 was the beginning of Sean's time playing Minecraft, he decided to build a small volcano on the server. It was a simple structure, but nevertheless, it needed a name. Sean took the word Vesuvius and tried to come up with a similar sounding name, and that name was Mt. Nosiphus.
The word Nosiphus would be applied to the notebook that afternoon as Sean liked it for branding purposes, but we'll have more details on that once the rebrand date comes around on February 6.
Recent as of Monday, January 30, 2023 - We have completed the conversion of the website to Google Sites, and we have started work on restoring legacy assets to use our new systems. The Maguire's Apocalypse modpack, which was originally used only to film the Metro series, is now available via our MultiMC method.
Recent as of Wednesday, January 18, 2023 - After five years on GitHub, a proper return to Google Sites has been in the works for some time now. This is being done for multiple reasons, but the biggest one is to re-enable member participation to edit the site without a knowledge of HTML. It will also allow the page to scale on mobile devices, something we've never done properly.
