Blog Activity on

Yes, you’re eyes are not deceiving you. I am writing!

Though, I am cheating and doing many of these post all at once and scheduling them, but I am wanting to get more content up on this blog to share some of my recent learnings with building out my new server.

So, here is to some post.

I will be sharing my post with G+/Twitter/FB(Only if you Follow me, please do not Friend Request, I don’t friend many internet-only people) – So Follow me there for updates!


I’m Back!

I’m going to really start to post more on this blog now. Namely about Minecraft, programming, and my personal weight loss findings and progress.

So if this interests you, check back often 🙂


Where’s Aikar

Blog’s been pretty dead, that is clear. I’ve yet again switched projects last year and now doing full on Java Development!

I am now the lead developer for Empire Minecraft. I am getting to work on some stuff that has always interested me: Gameplay Design and Development.

In Minecraft, I manage a custom version of the Minecraft Server software, as well as fully develop a custom built platform for the game to provide a unique Survival Server experience.

We focus on long term community impact, in aiming to give players constant content to play on, but keeping the game close to the “Vanilla” feel, so we like to call our server “French Vanilla”.

I also met my now Fiancee on Empire Minecraft… so you could say things got very interesting in life, but keeping busy 🙂

Follow me over at Empire Minecraft, but will try to do more post here.


The Return

So, the past 2 months have been hectic.

I’ve purchased my first house… So i’ve been busy with all of that process, moving, etc, spending loads and loads of money into the new house… There was no time for programming. 🙁

But I think I’ve finally gotten back to a resting point in life, as another major goal in life knocked down (and man are they falling this year!, New job, new car, new home!) so I should hopefully be able to return to developing my projects again.

Although I haven’t done much coding on my open source projects recently, I’ve still been keeping up with Node.JS, so still aware of everything. Now its time to get back and get dirty with some MongoDB…


I am Senior Software Engineer and Entrepeneur. I am an enthusiast and love creating things. I operate my own side company in my free time called Starlis LLC, working in Minecraft.

I enjoy doing things right and learning modern technologies.
