Hi folks. Please CW brexit stuff if you can.

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'

Dear websites that try to guilt me into turning off my ad blocker: that's a wasted effort, it only serves to piss me off.

Holy crap D: I had to exit 2000 EHR entries by hand because our EHR's design decisions MAKE NO GOD DAMN SENSE.
Raaaaaaaaa.
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.

the lesson to be learned from the y2k bug is that if you avert the disaster nobody will think you did anything

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?

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.

Idea: Mod/Admin appreciation day.

What if we just all sent our mods a thank you note on the same day?

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!
