Here is an interesting project working on NextStep like desktop. I love WindowMaker and has high hopes for GNUStep. The author states that this is a personal project with no broader goals, but haven't a lot of successful open source projects started that way?
Here's my new portable computer. The case was finally printed successfully so I was able to make sure all the electronics actually fit. The cables need a lot of wrangling so I might look for some shorter ones. The list of components is on my blog:
This was a fun custom deck to make. I'm happy to have a sturdy little computer with a mechanical keyboard that I can take with me.
I just wanted to mention The Fantasy Trip RPG once more before the Kickstarter ends in a couple of days. TFT was one of the early RPGs, first out in 1980! It has been out of print for 35 years and is now being re-released through a Kickstarter campaign. At the $25 backer level you get the complete game as a Print-n-Play PDF.
The Fantasy Trip : Melee & Wizard
Finally, after decades of being out of print, I can finally but a copy of Melee. I ordered the Ogre Pocket edition the years ago and love it. I have been looking for a copy of Melee for a while. Even better, a simple fighting game and be expanded into a full fledged RPG. So excited!

Something I’d forgotten in my brief wandering away from here is how much this brings me stuff I do not see anywhere else.
I don’t draw. I don’t fantasy. I don’t tech. I scarcely queer. In fact I barely understand what’s going on around me here most days.
But I experience no boredom with it at all. I feel like I get to listen in on new things all the time.
Something about community makes us hear from one another better.
Just an average, ordinary person. I enjoy technology, FLOSS, board games, mountain biking, kayaking, rugby, and reading. Oh, and beer. And whiskey.
