You don't starve unless you do stuff like running or jumping, but I think you can relog to fix it (or hope a pigman pushes you out of the way xD)If only you could travel in cart through nether portal (Mojang, fix your game). However instead you can get stuck inside the portal starving to death (or switching to creative and breaking portal blocks).
Not with 1.5 GT, then you use food depending on number of items in inventory (in before flame war, you can turn it off in config).You don't starve unless you do stuff like running or jumping, but I think you can relog to fix it (or hope a pigman pushes you out of the way xD)
That worked, thanks.The top side of the furnace should be set to input (blue). I'm not sure why that isn't working for you. Make sure that once you set it to blue, remove the external crafting pattern from the interface, then delete the queued up crafting job, then re-insert the pattern, then queue up a new job.
Failing that, move the interface one block up and place a single Buildcraft pipe (cobblestone will do) between it and the furnace.
