COVID-19 gaming (~)
My FLGS just announced that their open gaming space is closed for at least the rest of the month. So that’s the Monday night game gone for a bit, sad to see things close down, but also it’s nice to not have the social pressure of missing a game competing against the need to stay away. My work game is going to try moving online too.
DST negativity, pedantry
The DST changeover is always awful, I'm on my second coffee for the morning. Not having to deal with it is one of the things I miss about living in AZ.
Also, for some reason I find it really hard to suppress my desire to correct people when they say they've scheduled a meeting at some time MST, when the meeting really starts at that time MDT.
Between different brands and being turned sideways, about a third of the monitors in the office are polarized wrong for looking at with sunglasses. Fortunately mine are fine, but looking around is bleh. Like lots of square portals to some eldritch dimension.
If mayo can come in convenient slices, why not other condiments? It's tempting to laugh, but as an American I _know_ there's a market here for convenient sliced ranch dressing.

- Steak Sauce
- Balsamic Vinegar
I don't put a lot of stock in dreams, but I've been wondering lately if the change to my in-dream response to my recurring nightmare means anything.
It used to be that falling would terrify me, but the last few times it's happened in dream I've been calm. "Huh, guess this is how I die."
I've been making an effort to respond more calmly to crises, and I'd like to take it as a sign I'm succeeding. At the same time it's just a dream, maybe I'm used to this specific scenario.
Hey folks. Sorry for the mishap, I think the Wandering Shop is not fully back online. (RT for visibility, if you please)
What happened: Cert expired, because a command wasn't running and I didn't catch it.
Sorry for the interruption. There's only one admin (me) and when I'm away from my computer, bad things can happen. 😕
Progress today: customized IEX to act more like a game parser that greets the player with instructions. Typing start begins a prompt for your name and a greeting returning it.
Not much to do in it yet. I'm studying some prior art, a text aventure that's also in Elixir: https://github.com/SherSpock/GMYLM-Elixir
It's kind of hard to play, and breaks down in places. Returning multi-line paragraphs as a string is ugly and kinda painful. But at least someone else is thinking about this too.
Online introvert, ace/egg, he/him, games enthusiast, literally a wall.
