  1. You are a: Socialist Pro-Government World-Federalist Bleeding-Heart Progressive Collectivism score: 67%Authoritarianism score: 33%Internationalism score: 83%Tribalism score: -83%Liberalism score: 67%
  2. Well, in the last six weeks I've been amusing myself by rereading Eddings' Sparhawk series. Currently up to the end of The Shining Ones (5/6). I don't think I've read these books since high school, some fifteen years ago or so. They're... not as good as I remember, sadly. I can't remember if the Belgariad/Malloreon was better, but I'll probably leave that for now. On a nicer note, though, I just bought the first three Culture books. Banks is a complete gap in my education so far, and from everything I've been told I've really missed out.
  3. Hm. The street numbers I've lived in, in order, are 10, 88, 6, 121, 32, 55, 23, 10 and 40.
  4. If nothing else, I find it odd that the categories are non-overlapping. With several "Other" responses from people inside the US who feel their area isn't covered, I'd have added at the very least an "Other - North America" option, with the instruction to pick the most specific one applicable. Right now, for example, that would absorb 3/4 of the Other votes. (I'm also not sure why Chicago and Wisconsin each get separate categories. They haven't been picked yet, and Wisconsin isn't particularly populous - #20 according to Wikipedia.)
  5. First we got a chart to show the meetings between members; now we're planning meetings between members that would yield an aesthetically pleasing chart.
  6. Oh right, as well as my connection to Tyran (Europe) and Diki (California).
  7. Okay then. New report is at https://ermarian.net/resources/ipip-neo/arancaytar-2016,'>https://ermarian.net/resources/ipip-neo/arancaytar-2016, and since this is my third one I took the time to make a dynamic history plot: https://ermarian.net/resources/ipip-neo/
  8. Edit: Does the edge color represent location? Because in that case, I met Diki in California and Tyran in France, so those edges should be red and purple, not purple and green. Tyranicus is now the uncontested center, as near as I can tell. I think this code reflects the new chart.

  9. They're really coasting on that 35-year-old victory, too, based on that trash bag.
  10. I read Stephenson's Seveneves earlier this year, and Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality a little bit after that. That last one kind of pulled me into the whole Rationalism/LessWrong space, so via Slate Star Codex I've also been introduced to Unsong, which has a wonderfully bizarre setting. Between the linguistics, the puns and the Kabbalah references, I think Alorael might like it.
  11. Oh, no, it's still based on Sylae's CSV. I'll check for the differences. Edit: I think I've made a mistake importing that, though, because eg. Actaeon -- Rose is missing. Edit2: No wait, that edge is also missing from the CSV, as are two of Nico's. No missing nodes, though. Note that each edge is only listed in one direction (namely alphabetical). Edit: Now with a neat visualization tool: https://ermarian.net/services/games/graphs/
  12. Here's a DOT code, incidentally, in case anyone wants to import it in some graph tool:
  13. TF2 (like probably some other shooters) has a special no-gibs mode that is locked-in for some countries, eg Germany.
  14. Note that the intersection between this and Spiderweb's existing products is basically zero. In order to develop anything involving websites and server backends, Jeff would have to learn about half a dozen new languages and technologies, many of which are fast-evolving. These posts paint a good picture on how much he would enjoy that. (That aside, as Slarty pointed out, text-based RPGs are entirely unrelated to the SW games, involving a completely different set of game mechanics.)
