In Historia Mundi
Better Sleeping was my first publicly released mod, which was made for a very simple task I was missing: option to sleep during the day.
Since then the mod has grown a lot. For example you actually need to sleep every now and then to recharge energy. You can try using pills but you won't last long... Same with coffee.
Also you can set when you want to wake up - just use the Alarm and set the time you want to be woken up and put it next to your bed!
This mod is released for MC1.7.10 as stable and for MC1.8.9 and 1.9 in betas as it was completely rewritten from scratch.
The 1.8.9/1.9 versions depend on Calendar API and FoxieLib. The 1.7.10 version works standalone.
Note, that the 1.8.9/1.9 version still lacks some features (like Alarms) as I did not get to rewriting them yet.
Calendar API was originally developed to allow interconnecting multiple mods that dealt with dates and times (Better Sleeping and few 3rd party mods). Since then it has evolved to contain also Season API (to query for current season) and even Temperature API (to query for current temperature). Temperature scales based on season, time of the day, height and even how far are you from the equator.
Of course since this is an API I also provide a way to override these generators with yours - if you want your mod be the one providing these temperatures just register your own season provider and implement all the interfaces as you feel is the best!
As of right now the API is being updated for Minecraft versions 1.7.10/1.8.9/1.9 and is still possibly going to get changed!
In Historia Mundi is currently in early development. The name is (should be) latin for The World's Story. Similar to other mods who deal with hardcore life, early life progression going from stone to technology.
There is also a blog about the development and features in the mod itself. Not yet!
As of right now I am employed by a Czech company on a sysadmin position managing thousands of servers. Can't say many details, but let's say that there's more than one technology in use.
Of course lots of scripting and odd programming here and there is required as well.
I try to do things with just /bin/sh before using /bin/bash :-).
I have managed many, many years ago a small server. It was a dual Pentium III server so really old and really long time ago.
I've even worked before my current job as a part time, during my university, at a public school as a sysadmin. My "simple" task was to rebuild the whole network from scratch, base it on Windows Server 2012 for services and Debian for networking.
I've done some work in Python recently during my daily job, mostly related to sockets, monitoring services and a web interface for a component.
Powered by Flask framework and Bootstrap-based template. (No, I don't do graphics.)
Current project at work brought me to helping to fix one nginx module in our environment. All patches have been pulled upstream.
I've also helped to bring at my current workplace current
OpenVZ Virtuozzo 7 to Debian, including a multiple of PRs upstream to make it compatible without major patching on our side.
Also extra knowledge of debugging with gdb on headless servers has proven to be useful in certain scenarios, when the problem is hard to reproduce in dev environment.
Sadly I have past even with PHP. I've done quite a lot of websites, usually tied with MySQL. I even had my own templating framework back then.
Nowadays I do not touch PHP anymore as I've switched to Python3 + Flask with all kinds of database/key-value storages.
