About the Author

I am a 35 year old, professional software developer and I am passionate about quality, maintainable code. I have been playing Minecraft since the early Beta days and love what Bukkit has added to the experience. Like all the other awesome authors of Bukkit Plugins, I created this plugin for the good of the community. This plugin was originally published a couple of years ago and was my first published plugin. I'm happy to have found time to go back and spruce it up and I hope it finds a good home on your server!

If you've enjoyed it, please consider donating. Long gone are the days of "starving college student", but I am recently engaged and also long gone are the days of our parents paying for our wedding! :-) Your donations will help me justify the time I spend working on this instead of other, paid-for, side-work.

Please feel free to view this project's source code on github. If you run into any problems, please let me know and I will do my best to patch it up in a timely manner.

Thank you again, and enjoy!
