So, apparently you could pay$100 to have a cardboard cutout of yourself in the stands at Superbowl LV. Why?

Hey, you, reader of this post

You should set up a Gemini site

My wife doesn’t care a whit about mechanical keyboards or large format camera lenses or obscure command line utilities or the wildly different feel of various fountain pens. I have no idea why she married me.

I'd love to finish 2019 and start 2020 with 60 aggregated phlogs on Bongusta!

Now there are 58 of them.

Dear Gopherspace explorers, could you - pretty please - recommend two phlogs with more than a month of activity?

Just returned home from a weekend long pre-holidays party. So go to see friends, relax, and have fun. I haven't laughed so hard in years. It is probably going to take me a week to recover.

Just voted in local elections. I think this is by far the largest turnout I have ever seen in this town (20 years), definitely the first time I have had to wait in line. There were easily 30 people ahead of me in line. Asked one of the workers and they said it has been a banner year for turnout.

#Switchel! #beverage

2-3 Tablespoons of grated ginger,
4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar,
4 cups water
4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
or honey

Put ingredients in a jar with a lid. Shake to combine. Refrigerate for at least two hours, best 12-24 hours. Wait for the hottest part of the day and drink refrigerated switchel.

Awww yeah, almost time for parsnip season! I sure do love Autumn!

Account configuration wizard complete! Here's what your first run of aerc will look like:

So grateful that Major League Rugby posts the games on YouTube. That should help build awareness with the universal accessibility the platform. Hopefully they don't rush to fully monetize the broadcasts too soon and undermine th momentum before it can build critical mass in the US.

For now I'll be cheering for Rugby United New York, Seattle Seawolves and soon the New England Freejacks!

A few weeks ago I saw a wiki which produced automatic lists of things for RPGs, based on tables posted to a Reddit about d100. Now I can't find it again. Does anyone know what it was I saw?

Hey, Tunnels & Trolls review from 1975!

Also many issues of The Space Gamer/The Fantasy Gamer

Not the Barony games ones, from first inspection, which is a shame. Great mini-RPGs in those.

Just backed the keychron keyboard.

Makes it seem even sillier that I hesitating to order the power jack for my laptop.

With my laptop out of commission, I decided to repossess my old chromebook from my child. After an hour of downloading, installing and upgrading, I have a fresh shiny install of Fedora up and running!

However, this won't last long term. Going from a resolution of 3200x1800 down to 1366x768 is painful.

My main laptop died two weeks ago; it wasn't charging. I ordered a cheap charger and tested my laptop. The issue wasn't the charger. I spent an hour and disassembled the laptop and found that the power jack is replaceable. Went online to order a new one and found that a replacement costs nearly $80. Four times what the charger cost. Grrr. It isn't a huge cost but i just can't seem to pull the trigger and buy it.

Sometime around 2006, I stumbled you a website extolling the virtues of , specifically the recommendation to use plaintext for emails over html. They recommended preceeding "bullet" items with an explanation mark to indicate action needed, a question mark to indicate something that needed a response, etc. I can't find my bookmark for it anymore and desperately want to reread the post. 50 pages of Google results haven't found it.

I would be grateful if anyone could point me to it.
