D&D Nerd Shit
Fun of the day: installing the AD&D Core Rules and Forgotten Realms Interactive Atlas in a Windows 2000 VirtualBox VM. I have the VM setup with an HP Laserjet Postscript Printer, attached to the Print To File port. Then I point the printer to the Z: drive which is my Linux home directory on the host machine. In this way, I can print generated characters to a ps file and use ps2pdf in Linux to convert them to a handy PDF file for use.
I wanted a leather bound "Tome of Mapping." (a hardback book of blank graph paper) I could find nothing like this, so I made one. I used 11"x17" graph paper, embroidery thread to sew the signatures, some press board for the covers, some faux leather to cover the outside, elmers glue to secure things, and some cotton fabric to cover the spine. I think it turned out well.
Rewrote RND Dungeon on RPoD to feed off a data file with 52 rooms (can be unlimited). It is still random, so occasionally you get things such as a door leading to a door.
Also did some work on my WWW site (https://leveck.us) which displays my phlog as a blog. Got the size down while adding some 88x31 banners. imagemagick to the rescue! Note: the robots.txt file on both mirrors of my gopher proxy protect gopher from ethical bots. Gopher links in my blog are funneled through this proxy.
Since I am giving suggestions to gopher client makers... it would be super cool if someone essentially remade TurboGopher. It would seem to me that the sourcecode (if it is even accessible anywhere) would be so very tied to Classic MacOS that it would likely be a larger undertaking to port than to start from scratch. As far as GUI gopher clients go, the first was the best (IMHO).
