Mrs. IPX and I have a bet going... on how long it'll be until looting starts. She says a week, and despite my usual dim view of society, I'm betting on three weeks.

Interesting... My Little Pony character templates for GURPS.

I have been thinking of introducing my 6 year old daughter to roleplaying games, and this might be the catalyst.

Wicked, my wife witnessed a fistfight over the last box of Kleenex at Safeway today.

She didn't like it when I asked if she'd gotten in a few shots of her own.

Interesting... apparently there was a The Last Starfighter microgame released by FASA in the mid-80s. (Source: Space Gamer #71)

A friend of mine, who is a severe Agoraphobe, just exclaimed, "Who's laughing NOW?!" on Facebook, referring of course to the covid-19 panic.

I have the weirdest friends IRL.

Besides, it would make a mockery of all the people who are striking for important, legitimate reasons...

Some of the guys were asking if I was going to go on strike over the coffee situation, but I told them I'm not that entitled.

I went downstairs to our lunchroom to grab a cup of coffee, only to find the carafe empty. I went to make more and (horror!) there was no coffee to be made.

Our supplier is late. No ETA on our monthly delivery.

Oh shit - Max von Sydow died! We were just talking about him last week!

PSA: last night one of our pyrex cooking dishes exploded.

not fractured, exploded. β€œpyrex isn’t supposed to do that” we thought.

as of a few years ago, Pyrex sold their brand, the new company changed glass recipe as a cost cutting measure, resulting in a pandemic of exploding cookware and a class action lawsuit.

thankfully the patent has expired and the keyword to look for in competing glass cookware products is β€œborosilicate glass”

Had a little time to kill, so I set up my Powerbook 5300 in its permanent new home in my lab.

I did a bit of housekeeping on its HD, updated my phlog, and even had time to take TurboGopherVR for a not-so-Turbo spin...

Sweet. I just secured funding for a pet project by finding a way to tie it in to a project my VP of Operations assigned to me. That made my weekend!

My after-work routine has become:

Log into my favourite BBSes & get my QWK packets
Read messages & upload replies (if any)
Fire up my newsreader and check my subscribed newsgroups
Check my favourite Gopher sites to see what's up.

Then I think to myself, "What the Hell year is this?!"

Finally picked up my birthday present, waited 'til it was on sale at 25% off.
