In case anybody needs it here is the link to the Plus or Minus Podcast archive. A podcast dedicated to the #Fudge RPG.
in dystopian tech news, Texan utilities which are poorly managed and not reliable remotely lowered people's temperature of their AC, and Peleton exercise bikes were remotely disabled (or just a feature?) unless you pay $40/month because they injured people including killing a child.
So basically, "smart" just means products and services you pay for are remotely controlled by entities that don't have your best interest in mind because those entities created faulty products or poorly run services.
My next #shadowrun character is going to be a twitch streaming rigger.

Five or so years ago I was working on the BBC's developer portal at https://developer.bbc.com and I was asked to replace the terrible fake code on the laptop screen in the stock photo. As an easter egg, if you click on the laptop screen then you can change it too.

Just heard about the passing of Andrew Hackard (the "Munchkin Tzar"). Saddened to hear about this. Sending love to the friends, family, and Munchkin community writ large. He will definitely be missed.

You still have 8 days to get this incredible collection of romantic tabletop games. Get yourself some summer lovin'!
Weekend glorantha #larps need to be a thing where i live. Erect a bronze age city state in the middle of the desert, then get a bunch of guys in beatup old mascot costumes to lay seige and we wallop each other with beanbag spells.
So i picked up the newish #Runequest slipcover set and the #HeroQuest pdf. Still skimming, both systems seem interesting. Looking through them and some of my old DTRPG purchases I think I've sorted through my confusion.
Basically i stumbled into it during the Nongoose Runequest II era. So i picked up a settingless rulebook and a setting book set in a different era from most the other runequest material.
Even though my tastes tend more towards SciFi RPGs these days my GF is more interested in fantasy so hopefully we can get some 1-on-1 gaming on soon...
