I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.
I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.
If you want to chat, ping me!
My Take on D&D Editions BX-5E (Ep. 113)
Professor Dungeonmaster reflects on every edition he has played, from the Moldvay Basic Set to the current 5th Edition.
I urge other artists to back up their data not just on a blog or on mastodon, but to keep a damn good file/drive/physical of it that you know will not leave you if something goes wrong.

This is a friendly reminder that when two people on the fediverse have a disagreement, you don't *have* to express your opinion about it in their mentions, use the opportunity to make a loosely-related political point, or join a spiralling public drama about it.
It can be hard to break the habits we formed on platforms where techbros have monetised our negative emotions, divisions, and innate desire to belong. But your activist energy can be better directed, and your mental health will benefit.
Hey everyone! Now that we're two decades past it, let's have a heart to heart chat about the Y2K bug.
Some of you might not be old enough to remember the panic articles and news stories surrounding this, and some of us were old enough that we've forgotten the details, but the gist was this: many commercial computer applications, such as bank and medical record software, used to be written to store dates with a 2-digit year, and assumed that everything took place between 1900 and 1999.
