I recall years back that The Register used to be a little critical of OpenBSD. Lately they've been giving credit to the project for being right. For example, yesterday's article on the new attacks:
"The OpenBSD community, for one, came to that conclusion last year when it disabled Hyber-Threading in OpenBSD 6.4."
"Or maybe someone started tinkering with the Boltzmann constant and thermodynamics stopped working properly. Sometimes these disasters are ongoing. Sometimes they will never end, eventually affecting everyone, though likely only at the speed of light. Unless someone tinkered with that."

Anybody else putting out links to RPG blog posts they liked in the last few weeks? I think we need this kind of stuff.
Diagramming more games with DFDs.

'Soooooo I have been writing reviews for about ten years. My wife's review of Alien puts everything I have ever written to shame. "Alien is a movie where nobody listens to the smart woman, and then they all die except for the smart woman and her cat. Four stars."'
I need a quick cultural check, but am unemployed and so broke I can't afford groceries, much less a diversity consultant. Can someone who knows something about Zulu culture please help me out so I can get a $1.99 PDF onto DTRPG and maybe pay a bill? All I need is to know if Zakhele Manqoba Khumalo is a plausible name for an 1880s era Zulu man, and the title Udokotela to indicate he's a doctor or biologist. #ttrpg #zulu #rpg #amwriting
Wondering where I've been? I've been busy teaching!
I teach at the Makerspace of Lighthouse, an experimental school in Holyoke, MA, one of New England's poorest cities. The name of my class is Art That Thinks, but I describe it as "Socioemotional shop class".
Help me teach more!
@Halfjack writing about about transliteration in fantasy alphabets, using Tengwar as an example: if you write "l a u g h" using Tengwar, I'm going to cry because I learned English the hard way and the English spelling will surely make all elves cry. And if Fëanor can cry then so can I. And you. https://vsca.blog/2019/04/18/transliteration/
