The Internet, 2019:
Omg someone made a Darth Vader fan film that was in total breach of every copyright and trademark ever invented and now Disney hasn't even taken it off Youtube, it's right there, but, but Disney is getting MONEY from ADS!
Everyone Older Than 20:
Oh, you sweet summer children. Let me tell you about the time Atari sued everyone in the world who made a 'videogame'
@Canageek Imagine my shock when I LET I = 10 and then LET I = I -1 and it got to zero AND THEN KEPT GOING.
Holy crap D: I had to exit 2000 EHR entries by hand because our EHR's design decisions MAKE NO GOD DAMN SENSE.
Seriously! What the fuck kind of GUI silently fails to record a UI event unless you interact with another random UI object after changing it?
It's infuriating because for all intents and purposes it changes the value (if you look at the record it preserves the GUI state change) but it fails to make that change visible to the scripting backend unless you also randomly click on like a text box or something after toggling a checkbox.
I honestly don't know how I feel about Section 31 continuing to be a thing that we give more air time.
In some ways it feels like a crutch to have more "gritty" Star Trek.
To what end? Why is that necessary?

my wife is a freelance developer who is highly skilled in unity, C#, python, django. due to disability, she has been struggling with the demands of her corporate contracts and would like to offer her skills on a remote-only basis to conserve spoons. we’re wondering what kind of pay cut we’d have to offer to get the necessary concessions.
is anyone in a similar situation who would care to dm me their day rate or any advice? (pls boost)
Today at lunch a woman dropped by our table and said our conversation was really interesting, and we invited her to sit down and join us. We made a new friend.
It made me think... when I was very young, many of the friends I made were just people I walked up to (or the reverse) and said "would you like to be my friend?" For whatever reason, this is much harder to do as an adult, though I'm not sure it needs to be.

As some of you may know, I'm launching a #DnD game specifically designed to introduce newbies to the game. In particular, I'm hoping to offer an "in" to people who haven't felt welcome/safe to play before.
As such, I don't want them to feel like they need to buy something up front, so I'd like to have a couple of "table copies" of the PHB. If you want to help, you can contribute here:
Boosts also appreciated!

@Canageek Oh, but you have to have humanoids with guns to shoot at, because if you're not shooting at people is it really a video game? 🙄
And if the gun ghouls aren't humanoid enough for you, you can shoot super mutants, who have ZERO reason to be anywhere near this setting at this time
Like Christ, is Bethesda capable of making a game that isn't primarily about people shooting guns at each other? Have they had a single idea since 2008?
