@dosnostalgic I have a question you may be able to answer!
I have a memory of an old DOS shareware game, circa late '80s/very early '90s, that involved building fleets of historic warships and then fighting battles between them. Text mode only, no graphics. I played the heck out of it as a kid.
As an adult, I've never been able to nail down exactly what game this was. Ring any bells?
I asked for a penannular brooch for Christmas but we had trouble finding one for a reasonable price. Then this past weekend we accidentally stumbled upon a Viking Village Festival in the Westfjörds and look what we found! Just in time for my birthday, too.
This winter I'm going to be a WFH trendsetter as I wear the shit out of some blankets.
What I'm listening to today ("best techno on Youtube" 12/13): "Oscillation", Jeanie
Modular synthesizers are usually about sculpting single finely tuned timbres, and YouTube synth videos are often just to show off one single sound or groove. It's kinda rare to see anything with conventional song structure. Which is fine! But then here's a complete, compelling pop song, with singing!— very good singing!— based around modular synths and a Buchla easel, and it's *amazing*.
@tomasino is running a survey about the Small Internet. If you use Campaign Wiki, you qualify! 😄
I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at https://mch2022.org
Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

Okay, new plan... start by laying out federal regulations for militias in the US. Include background checks, waiting periods, etc in the process of vetting members. Require regular training and certifications. Then, follow it up by pushing the legal idea that citizens can bear arms only if they are a part of that well-regulated militia, since that was the whole damn point.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
