Hey! #MtGArena now has direct challenge available!

Happy to play with any of you fine people. :)


I dunno yet if we make a friend list or need the code every time. Just now installed the update, so we'll see.

so I finally moved all my bookmarks over from Chrome to Firefox, only to discover that the webpages I do my work in are optimized for Chrome

so now I do the two browser thing and I'd say it was a pain except that nothing has really changed

Academia pro-tip:

Legally change your name to put an exclamation mark at the beginning

Makes it less likely you'll have another academic with your same name; you'll also always be at the beginning of alphabetized author lists

Somebody in a Slack I'm in posted something about finding their "childhood introduction to computer programming" on the Internet Archive and it came out the year I hired into my last full-time job. 👵

@Jo BTW, you play doom mods, right? Have you seen Revenant Bus? Its like Desert Bus, but for Doom.

Is anyone interested in joining my #dnd5e Spelljammer-like game? It is play-by-post with about one combat turn every other day. It has the basic ideas of Spelljammer but is my own setting.

I'm running through The Mines of Phandelver but changed to set it on an asteroid belt.

Players act as agents of the crown, trying to restore a connection to the government and help people in a region that has to mostly be abandoned due to a war. Now you are going out, showing the flag and helping people.

Mastodon, can we play a game?

You describe an animal badly, and I draw exactly what you described.

(Do not tell me what the animal is. I will not try to guess. Please tell me AFTER I finish the drawing.)

Attached is a blue whale as my 6yo son described it. Want more? Reply with a description of your own!

Please boost!

so, my dad is a mechanical engineer and i've been thinking about doing some kind of formal conversation with him to see what software engineers and mechanical engineers have in common. best practices, approaches to technology, tackling new projects, that kind of thing. i'm gathering questions and pinging my networks for some ideas.

if you could sit down with an engineer, what would you ask?

retoots encouraged!

The traditional Desert Bus opening: "Welcome people of all races, abilities, genders and locations"

Another one they use a lot: ""from near and far, young and old, people of every shape ability and gender"

I should also say: They are also VERY open and accepting and try and make everyone welcome.

So everyone knows: Canadian comedy troup Loading Ready Run is doing their annual charity marathon. Its a LOT of fun, and I watched for 7 years before donating. They do skits, dances, all sorts of fun stuff, and just watching helps get them onto Twitch's front page.

They have an entire TEAM moderating their chat, and many of them are on Mastodon (though are not very active).

Did I mention it starts in 30 minutes? And @DialMforMara made this prize for it?
