Whats the piston mod?
I had to look this up, myself. Apparently, you can create a piston that is controlled by redstone wiring, and will allow you to either A) push blocks horizontally, or B) launch blocks into the air.

Pretty cool. I already have ideas for some upgrades to my fortress that might be pretty slick if I get them to work...first and foremost, building in some secret doors.
Minecraft is what it is. I didn't get what the big deal was until I tried it...couldn't grok what people were excited about.
If it's not your cup of tea, you may never get why people like it. It's not so much shallow as simple. Simple isn't necessarily bad...I kinda like simple, sometimes...but it's not for everyone.
It's not "press A for AWESOME!" - those who want that, or even desire a structured "!" over the quest-giver environment, need to look elsewhere.
