Review of "A quarter century of UNIX" (4 stars): A dense book detailing the history of UNIX from its inception to the mid 1990s.

Professor Pinball's Castle is a pinball game created by @dbisdorf featuring several challenge events, end-of-ball bonus scores, and dot-matrix display. The game was made in Godot and is open-source. The code is at

Part of decluttering is turning things that aren't bringing you satisfaction or joy into things that do (or just letting them go altogether).

Transformed a stack of board games that weren't doing anything other than taking space into items that will bring me some more joy.

(The results of a trade from Noble Knight, who are an absolute pleasure to deal with.)

Instead of a kickstarter or whatever I'm doing simple presales through itch to fund the end-of-summer print run. So if you know you want a copy, it'd mean the world to me if you'd consider picking it up in advance.

Looks like Board Game Geek is going to require sellers in their GeekMarket to have Stripe. Means I'll be listing a bunch of board games up there before I'm stuck with trying to pawn them off in trades (which I'm loathe to do) or try to get them over for consignment at the FLGS. Neither of which is a particularly attractive option.

Ah well. This is yet another reason for me to stop with picking up board games: they have little resale value unless they are super-popular.
