World Ending Game includes an overarching conversational ruleset, and then 20 small games which compound into a session of play.

Every one of these games has an original illustration, each from a different artist, and a page layout (by Andy Pressman) to respond to that artwork. And when I tell you that this artist list is INCREDIBLE-

I am so excited to announce my next game!

World Ending Game is a tabletop game written to serve as the last session of a campaign in any system.

Borrowing from conventions of cinema, World Ending Game tells falling action stories. It explores what comes right after the climactic event in your story- and what you need to see to believe that it's all, finally, over.

World Ending Game is about closure, grief, joy, relief, and getting to say a proper goodbye.

I finished replacing the fans in a SRX1400 ahead of getting 10 gig fiber.

Dear #FreeSoftware folks, how do you sync your #podcast listening queue between a mobile and a desktop, for example? If that's something you do, of course.

Open call for obsolete sounds! This project is really fascinating. They're requesting recordings of sounds from our environment, old tech, etc. that are no longer commonplace and then those will be reimagined by sound artists "to draw attention to the world’s disappearing soundscapes." https://citiesandmemory.com/2022/05/open-call-your-field-recordings-of-obsolete-sounds-wanted/

I have started keeping notes in a small personal wiki using feather.wiki/ So much more freeing then other forms of note taking for me. I'm mainly using it for recipes and project notes. I hope to move my book marks over later today.

I documented some of my recent experiments in reverse-engineering the Print Gocco, a Japanese DIY printmaking tool from the 1970s. You can read about it here: https://www.nobadmemories.com/blog/2022/05/printmaking-as-play/ #theWorkshop

Asking for a comrade: is there some way to underclock a raspberry pi 4B, inside a raspad? It is drawing 33Wh, and lasts only around 3 hours on battery.

We want to push this power/energy consumption down.

Much thanks in advance.

Went to the beach to day. It was a little too windy but was great.

My secret projects is complete enough to share! I present Feather Wiki, a tiny, self-contained #wiki app that exports into a single HTML file:

Think TiddlyWiki but as small as possible!
