white leds don't emit light directly - they excite a phosphor, similar to how a crt works.

and we're slowly using them to replace orange sodium vapor streetlights.

what i mean is, someday the sky over _every_ port will _literally_ be the color of a television tuned to a dead channel.

The Dictionary of Mu is up for pre-order, shipping in early January.


The Dictionary of Mu is a pulp fantasy setting supplement for Ron Edwards' Sorcerer RPG where demons are dead things, bits of history made wrong. Players will decide the fate of the planet through play, adding to the dictionary as they go and creating a deeper and richer history with every demonic summoning.

Dang, back on G+ I learned about 3 distinct drama situations in the RPG world today.

Or at least in that tiny corner of the world where I know people.

Supporting dice.camp: a few people have asked about how to support dice.camp. The short answer is you don't have to. But if you want to help us meet our costs (about $20/month) we now accept contributions at ko-fi.com/dicecamp.

dice.camp upgrades! The "A look inside..." preview on the non-logged-in home page will now show just (externally visible) posts from this instance, not the known fediverse, which should give potential joiners a better idea what's up here.

Nearly... quitting time.... productivity... dying.....

You can bag on Javascript all you want, but most of the people using it, the only alternative they've seen is PHP, so Javascript looks amazing in comparison.

Are you ready for *Driving In Cars with Game Designers*? Alex Grisafi interviewed me and Ron Edwards on the way to the last day of Lucca 2018. Hear me talk about finding inspiration for games and about what's missing from the Big Model. Google Translate is decent, but the text is less than the full interview. The linked audio is complete.
And here's a selfie with Ron after the interview.

povas esti tiel bela, tiel charma. Mi auskultas la muzkgrupon "Kapriol'", kaj iliaj kantoj sonas al mi kiel veraj mezepokaj kantoj, kun cxiom da mistero kaj antikveco de tiaj.

(Jes, mia sento pri la mezepoko chi tie estas iomete romantika kaj nelauhistoria.)

Dang. RIP Stan Lee. (This is the first time I learned about a celebrity death from Mastodon... it hasn't even made the front page of CNN yet, though it is listed on his wikipedia page)
