Ted talks are horseshit, thank you for attending my Ted talk.

Arguing with a nit-wit on zuckerbook spamming me with articles she hasn't read that dont support her argument... she has a reference to Dunning-Kruger in her profile... ya can't make this crap up...

Getting into podcasting for the money is like becoming a monk for the sex.

Critiques of charter schools usually focus on poor quality education (disproportionately affecting racialized and poor people) and dangerous ideology (the movement is funded by billionaire dilettantes and religious maniacs), and with good reason!

A century of science fiction wasn’t enough warning. Now, we need legislation to prevent the very real threat of government’s deploying armed and automated robots. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/07/dont

Offsets don't just fail to mitigate the climate emergency - they have a business model: funneling lots of public money to rich people, like the millionaire residents of a gated Pennsylvania estate who got huge tax breaks for their private park.

Everything we do to fix offsets just makes them worse: adding complexity to a loophole-riddled system creates more loopholes. We can't save the world and our species with improved murder offsets.

I think I might set up a 9front machine.

I will form an organisation to promote 9front and Plan 9 in Perth, and I will seek federation with the Perth Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation.

I think it is time we moved on from UNIX.

Back around 1993, I wrote a TTRPG called "SLUGS" - the Satanic, Loathsome, Unwholesome Game System. Only 200 were ever made. About 20 pages, copied & stapled.

Today, folks pointed me at a FB discussion about that game. It has fans.

Put your weird out there. People will love it.

I hate christmas.

So naturally i have 2 daughters born in December to a woman who loves christmas.

And my eldest daughters year pretty much goes Christmas, being mad that we are putting away christmas stuff, asking where the christmas stuff went, and then loosing her mind over anything that reminds her of christmas until it comes again.

Life goal: get them on team Halloween.

The Houston Computer History Museum is liquidating everything they have! If you are in the vicinity of Texas and enjoy old computers, go take a trip there and save a piece of history!

Hey hey.

My RPG blog still exists: Art to inspire an Optimistic Post-Apoc Game | Ruminations of a Canadian Geek

[…] However, I do like my settings a bit more colourful and optimistic then these games. As I went over last time there are plenty of good literary inspirations, but these often don’t have any art aside from […]

NuNuTSR (racist, transphobic division) has now dumped the name:
old.reddit.com/r/rpg/comments/

This is "fun", EGGJr in his own words:
enworld.org/threads/ernie-gyga

> TSR has been gone. There's a ton of artists and game designers and people that play..... and recently they were dissed for being old-fashioned, possibly anti modern trends, and enforcing, or even having the concepts of gender identity (laughs).

My favorite genre of film is confusing Andy MacDowell without ever telling her anything.

So with Valve making SteamOS 3.0 based on Arch Linux, does that mean that Valve will now sponsor the development of Arch? #valve #steam #steamos #archlinux #linux #linuxgaming
