I found out about a nasty computer virus that seems to affect many roboticists like us! If there's an icon on your desktop that seems to be a pixilated brown cube with green on top, DON'T CLICK IT!
As it turns out, it's a deadly computer virus developed in Sweden that not only creates files that clog up your HDD, but also opens a black hole that sucks the user into an alternate reality where everything looks like the aforementioned icon! So, if you want to keep actively Roboting, I'd suggest deleting that cube. For anyone who isn't quite sure what this icon looks like, here's a picture:LINK

This has been a NeXT-Generation Public Robotiscist announcement.

No, this is a joke, but I really like Minecraft and it's chewing up robot time. I gotta quit it. :x

A robot should be programmed to play it. Then one could enjoy both one's hobbies ( programming and minecraft) at the same time!

HAHA!!! My siblings play minecraft way too much! I intentionally steer clear, 'cause I know I prefer programming and Legos over computer games, and I don't want to get stuck playing them when I could be programming.

BTW, did you know that minecraft pi (the Raspberry Pi edition of minecraft) includes APIs for Java and Python? So you actually can program and play minecraft at the same time!

I have actually never played minecraft *gasps from addicted gamers*. I prefer to stay away from the raves. I am an elite non-follower of useless stuff, and because I am way too smart to want to play minecraft, I don't. I also have never bragged in my entire life. :)

Good for you! If my siblings hadn't kept annoying me about it, I probably never would have gotten it, and would have made a lot more robots by now. Though it is not as idiotic as it may seem, it is still a giant black hole where all meaning of time disappears....

I am guilty of that. For shame NeXT-Generation. For shame.

Get an antivirus like Norton, Immunet Plus, Kaspersky, Panda and get rid of this virus. It’s not a thing to laugh; virus infection can make you cry. Get you data secure and remove this virus as soon as possible.

idk if you're a spammer or what... but it's a joke. It's not a virus, it's a game. A very cruel, time stealing game, yes, but still just a game.

Yeah, addictive games can really mess up your day. Once you start playing it is really hard to stop. A big shout out to Coder A. I really admire that you didn't get sucked in.

To add on to what I previously wrote, a new forbes magazine (March 23, 2015) had an article featuring the inventor of Minecraft. He said that the reason why he sold his game to Microsoft for $2.5 bil was because his whole life revolved around his game.
