re: Spirit island 

@mxfraud I always say that the fast/slow mechanic is really the most difficult thing to grasp, and it took a good number of plays for me to consistently remember to check that I was using powers when I was allowed to.

That said, because of the theme and the variety of cards and Spirits, it's still in my Top 5.

Is anyone from around these parts thinking about taking the risks and going to PAX Unplugged this year?

@Anzeliane Amusingly, on Fb00k I saw a similar post, but instead of cryptozoology it was cryptidcurrency.

I just found this Solo RPG author and I totally just picked up a copy of Apothecaria and RISE to play by myself! Who needs friends!

@sissas I don't know if I'm more jealous of you for playing or her for running that. Let me know how Session 4 goes!

@sissas This is awesome. I have to plan in that level of nuance into my next campaign.

What are people running for their Spooktober sessions? I just read The Locusts of Fenmore and I'm trying to give that a spin.

re: please, talk me out of this 

@shahaan Don't do it! You will spend all your time tinkering with little things!

If you can, get a Pi and fight with that instead!

Yeah, Linux is difficult to use.

But Windows is impossible, so Linux still wins out.

An important concept in webdev is "progressive enhancement". That is, ideally, making sure everything in a webpage is an optional enhancement upon it's plain text.

Outside of JS web standards try to help you with this by making sure no HTML elements & CSS properties at least *can* gracefully degrade to more primitive/established alternatives. For instance <datalist> can contain a <select> element(s) around it's <option>s, so site visitors can still access the autocompletion.


The realest thing about Kim's Convenience is (Slight s2-ish spoiler) 

That Semira barely shows up in the show after she reneges on the renting an apartment plan.

Azadi Kickstarter Challenge (I could use some ideas) 

For the stretch goals, the creators are asking for backers to post:

(1) art that would have been better without imperial/colonialist themes
(2) favorite anti-colonialist art
(3) favorite revolutionary songs

I have tons of revolutionary songs, but I don't know much art! If anyone has any ideas they don't mind me reposting for credit on the Kickstarter campaign (just unlocking stretch goals, I think), I'd appreciate it!

A forum says I have to log in to see images.

But it loads the images on the page and then replaces them with the login button.....

This might've worked if I didn't see the images flash before my eyes.

@Juju You should play Seek if you don't already! It's an app that does species-level ID using iNaturalist data. No accounts or anything, so it doesn't transfer between phones, but still fun!

@ozoned @kate Mozilla also had huge layoffs in 2020, so I'm not surprised.
