Well. Unexpected end to *that* thread: https://twitter.com/BryantD/status/1008728548754898947
I'm moving Pickaxe.Club community storage into the nether (we have a major transit hub on the roof) so that it doesn't cause lag in the spawn chunks. It's halfway built and... it's large.
Getting caught up on podcasts, though.
this PDF of an article about gertrude stein has weird password protection so I'm using tesseract to OCR passages and it transcribed the phrase "Making of Americans" as "Making qumm'cans" and "This is a form of writing" as "This is a form of Wl'itiI-lg" and it's making me think that the OCR model must have been trained on like... Klingon slashfic or something
@gamehawk Update: works for this one!
Yeah, just over here looking at the board game shelf and mentally adding "& Zombies!" to the end of each game to see if it works.
I made a new rule: after dinner we don't go straight [back] to our computers but must instead have some non-screen family time. It's worked out pretty well. We rotate who picks, with a "do your own thing" night in the rotation. Mostly it's board games, though we have a Marbleocity kit we're gradually assembling.
17yo surprised me by requesting Qwirkle several nights in a row. We've had that for years and he refused to play ever again after half a game. Later, we learned he was colorblind. Oops.
Summary of my pre-outline DnD5E adventure for my brother's bachelor party:
Rumors spread of an ancient dungeon in the region's highest, coldest mountains, said to contain an actual star. The king promises his daughter's hand to whoever can bring back the star. A dozen expeditionary forces are formed and the arctic race begins.
Parts of Iron Will, Sphere, Prometheus, Empire Strikes Back, The Thing, Ocarina of Time, and The Last Crusade inform the story beats.

Ran a PBeM site from the dial-up BBS to the majordomo mailing list years. Someday I'll fire it up again. Someday.
