@marnox: Oh god, building a giant pyramid of sandstone reminds me of my island compound near spawn. Giant sandstone/sand building for an automatic cactus farm. It took so much sand. I don't even know why I made it. I never use cacti.
I also remember digging up 3 islands of sand back in the first server with FunExplosions. I went through like 4 diamond shovels.
...I might have to hop back on one day and build a giant thing of sandstone.
@fragor87: I could, but she's the lead in the party until level 100, and I always keep the Amulet Coin equipped for the leader. Even though I don't need any more money, I can't help it. Already up to 92 now, so just 8 more times.
