Settling in between snow storms with the grandchild and watching Dragon Prince. Kind of reminds me of Avatar the Last Airbender.

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!

Just what I needed halfway through a rough week. Pastrami Ruben and an IPA.

Interesting, a wedding venue inside an old covered bridge.

I love New England weather. A nice warm Spring day with some sun and a touch of tornados. Now, I wonder how long before I get power back this time. A few days, a week, two weeks like last time?

It has become clear over the course of a weeks vacation that I should not give my children the ability to make decisions about where to have dinner.

So : I have been out of the scene for a while. Decided to setup an old mac mini (5,2) with linux and run , , , and on it.

What is a good aggregator that works with a lot of different Android and Linux clients? (I really miss Google Reader.)

Just an update on for 2018.

So far I am 0/3.

* I don't feel any more compassionate, although I do try to be considerate and conscious of others and their needs.
* The only thing I have created is more chaos in my life.
* And I haven't learned anything significant.

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.

Interesting.

Sitting here in the waiting room at hospital and watching a couple of younger people having face-to-face conversation, while a an older woman uses a laptop, and another older woman is playing on her Switch.

And this older man is playing on his phone.
