**URGENT** PSA, very real doxxing possibility
The ESA managed to have a list of over 2k game writers and video folks (names, addresses, etc) *publicly* hosted on their website ever since E3 2019. And some site called "kiwi farms" which seems like a very bad place judging by the reaction managed to archive it before it was pulled down and the warning was broadcast.
If you attended E3 this year PLEASE consider changing passwords and looking out for weird activity on your accounts.
Be safe, y'all.
solar energy, chemistry, alcohol
Dye-sensitised solar cells are a type of photovoltaic device which uses a colourful dye to absorb light and cause an electric current, instead of the silicon semiconductors which most regular solar cells use.
It works because chemically, colour is caused by light being absorbed by molecules, which makes their electrons jump about. Dyes used to make solar cells absorb light strongly, and completely give up those electrons, which causes an electric current to flow.
So it turns out, because red grapes are full of molecules which are very good at absorbing light, you can make a working dye-sensitised solar cell using port wine instead of one of the fancy dyes which are normally used.
And honestly, I just thought that was really cool and worth sharing! ☀️
My janky old mage-knight #DnD class finally inched over the line to become a Copper Bestseller, but I'm too embarrassed to promote it.
Instead, I'm rewriting it from the ground up. Same flavor, better class.
My patrons get the first look. Have a spare dollar? You get that first look too:
(Note: All previous purchasers of the class will get the reboot for free, so no worries there!)
@jskellogg I might be starting a DnD campaign next week.
Do you have a list of the class/subclass you designed somewhere?
The Online Abuse Playbook
"There’s a well-defined pattern to how marginalized people are attacked online. If we can understand it, we can help stop each other from participating."
Every single admin or persons with a high-volume account needs to read this.
I read this article when it came out, and saw it get played out on Twitter, practically to the letter.
