I've just posted a super early preview draft of a superhero RPG I'm working on: https://dbisdorf.itch.io/soar
The wi-fi performance from our new AT&T router was unreliable at best. After much screwing around, I eventually--for lack of any other ideas--disabled the 5GHz signal and left the 2.4Ghz signal running. Today I haven't had a single problem. I'm sure there's a rational reason that turning off 5Ghz fixed the problem, but right now I'm just happy to have decent signal.
Frustrating argument with AT&T support. They're assigning us public IP addresses associated with locations in Kansas, Kentucky, and Florida, whereas we actually live in Michigan. This screws up access to some web sites that check our IP location. The AT&T techs insist that the problem is with our laptops, which betrays an utter lack of understanding the problem.
I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."
I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)
The Django Software Foundation is looking for an advances beginner Python/Django developper for a 4 to 6 weeks paid internship.
This looks really interesting, you should have a look if you need to acquire experience, while contributing to free software (meaning you'll incidentally help Funkwhale too ;)
So an irl friend and I are interested in starting an online (like through Discord?) DND campaign. Both of us have only played a few sessions of a campaign that won't be continued anytime soon (since my ex was the DM), and neither of us are comfortable DMing. Anyone have suggestions on how to get a good (friendly/compatible) party and DM together? (boosts are v welcome)
♲ @ReignOfApril@twitter.com: #FastColor opens today on limited screens. It is a beautiful film about three generations of Black Women with heightened abilities. If you’ve been clamoring for Storm from Marvel, this is the movie you should see. Ditto if you appreciate movies that center women of color. 1/
Hey, folks, I'm having a bit of trouble making ends meet this month, so if you wouldn't mind buying some of my games at parenthesispress.itch.io or drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/10096/Parenthesis-Press that would be great. And if you aren't in the mood to buy something, could you at least boost the post, please? Thanks a lot!
For the Roll to Craft game jam, Mary Lynn and I put together a simple quest-journey RPG called Save the Realm, based on Save the Universe. The new mechanics could use some tuning and debugging, but if you want a peek at what we've done so far: https://dbisdorf.itch.io/save-the-realm
Welcome to the intersection of food, film, and racism. This is a story of how, a day after Clio's racist convention experience, my friend Amber and I signed up at that same con to play a role-playing game called "Fortune Cookie Kung Fu." https://jamesmendezhodes.com/blog/2019/3/26/the-fortune-cookie-incident
