This quarry digs out a variable size rectangular hole

Huge Sized Quarries possible, the only restriction is how much fuel you can stuff in the turtle (and chunk loading)
Will always move to the proper position, will even attack mobs that get in the way!
Great for digging out rooms underground
Great for demolishing houses (use invert)
Deposits blocks into a chest when finished
Checks often to see if inventory is full
If inventory full, will go to a home chest to deposit blocks, then go right back where it was and continue mining
Session Persistence! Quarries will live through crashes and SSP
If it runs into bedrock, it will come back to start and tell you where bedrock was found.
Automatically checks if you have fuel disabled
Keeps a (somewhat) detailed record of what it mines
Will log mining runs for posterity when done (If you want)
While running, displays percent to completion and total blocks mined.
Very modular, many different things can be changed by config and arguments
Now can be fully automated from parent programs. Everything can be set from arguments
Intelligently tells you settings you have changed
Now has a companion program to place ladders all the way to the bottom. Here:
Now has a companion rednet program to give status updates when running. See below for current version
Will intelligently request fuel before mining, so it won't run out half way through.
Refuels quickly! You will fueled up and ready to go in no time!
Supports GPS networks. Is able to accurately get its position every time (If wanted)
Coming Soon:
Improved rednet program
Shell to control turtle
Maybe start quarries through rednet
Considering Ender Chest Support
