Is it just me, or has the unironic usage of "SJW" become pretty much an instant flag that means "ignore the rest of this sentence, and possibly unfollow"? I've entirely stopped seeing it used as anything but a derogatory term. And it's depressing how many otherwise sensible-seeming people end up revealing themselves this way.
I've tried following (as in "keeping track of", not "use a function named 'following', if that exists") #DCCRPG postings/discussions on #G+ but I find the interface beyond confusing. Is there a mode of viewing posts that's closer to, say, newsgroups, web forums, #RSS feeds or even Mastodon? #GooglePlus #Usenet #IFeelOld
Ugh. Had my first encounter (via his blog) with a batshit reactionary OSR-ish person, right down to "the left are the real fascists". At least that helped me shorten my RPG wishlist.
I wonder if there's an affordable tablet that can display PDFs well, mostly for reference at the table and reading in bed. From what I gather, the Kindle Paperwhite is awkward for PDF files, and a lot of cheaper tablets are fairly small and/or low res - I have no idea if I could read well on a 7 inch screen. #hardware #budget

It feels weird to see Steve Jackson Games having a sale on DTRPG. I thought they had Warehouse 23 for that?
#DCC #dice (green #Koplow "Who knew?" set plus a green #ImpactMiniatures d14) have arrived. Now to get into a #GM emulator and run a funnel. Somehow it feels like funnels should be particularly suitable for #solo play, given that every player is already expected to run a small party of their own. Hopefully I'll find out soon!
If, like me, you have an unreasonable love for rolling #dice on tables to generate things for #RPG (#solo or otherwise) use, it may please you to know that one of the finest purveyors of such items is having a dollar sale on #DTRPG: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/7178/Kent-David-Kelly
Does anyone know what happened to dieheart.net? I discovered it in early February or so and there used to be multiple posts per week, but now it's been silent for months.

tl;dr is right there in the link.
If you've ever known someone who scoffed at pre-packed or partially-prepared convenience foods, could you think about boosting this?

For the past few days, I've been glued to Tiny Kittens' cam feed from the caternity ward. Watched three feral mums give birth, endured some sadly natural heartbreak and am now watching nine tiny fluffy things grow up.
I highly recommend having a look! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PowGFq6X3Co
Thanks to @gamehawk's post here I found some nice links on diceware and passphrases:
- EFF's dice passphrases page is great and clear: https://www.eff.org/dice
- The Diceware FAQ, especially the "how long" part, are very interesting http://world.std.com/%7Ereinhold/dicewarefaq.html#howlong

Two small and easy tasks that you can do right now. If everyone did only one of them, it'd make everyone else's federated timelines and hashtag searches more excellent.
1) Go to the federated timeline right now, and scroll until you see something that makes you go "yay!" or "huh, interesting" or "cool". Boost it.
2) Post about something you love, post it 🌍 Public, and tag it with three hashtags.
