Without cryptocurrencies, there would be no way to support Wikleaks, except perhaps suitcases full of rubles tossed over the outer wall of the Ecuadoran embassy

Geoguessr with a full room of friends and a big-screen monitor is pretty great. Though it can get a little crazy if you play by the "use any resources necessary, and do your best to get a perfect 5000 score" rules which we play by

I was frightfully proud of my hard work on The Mountain Witch back in 2010. I put a lot into that book design, and the game had a huge influence, from White Wolf’s trust mechanics to like half of indie RPGs until 2013.

Now it’s coming back into print!


Having Facebook anxiety. It’s such an evil institution but the connection and support of my friends there has been so important to me.

I was shocked to realize yesterday that the number of Esperanto-speaking rappers I could name off the top of my head was four. That seems like a lot.

(Since you ask: Tone, Eterne Rima, Dolchamar, Pafklik. Though I guess Pafklik is technically two rappers.)

Fun fact: ads are one of the prominent malware vectors right now. You're better off without an antivirus than without an adblocker, basically (and stay away from crap like McAfee and Norton: both were used as VECTORS in the past. Better the built-in MS one).

@pdxmph well, I just duplicated the random pile of crappy hand-edited html files on my site, but now they’re generated by middleman and deployed by a post-install hook. Excelsior!!




i think maybe middleman is my jam

@pdxmph hey, playing with haml, which I've never really used. The docs aren't telling me how to (e.g.) use <em>phasis</em> without breaking out the emphasized word into its own line. Is that not supposed to be possible?
