  1. I really haven't been reading much lately, have I? I have a barely-read stack of non-fiction from Value Village, acquired because I thought it was a way to read about topics I wouldn't have thought to seek out normally. The last one I finished was Colour-Coded: A Legal History of Racism in Canada, 1900-1950 by Constance Backhouse, which took me months because I only read it when I was puppy-sitting. It covers a wide range of topics, all centred on six different case studies. Detailed while still being accessible to a layperson like me. My biggest problem with the book is that the previous owne

  3. Be careful what you wish for.
  4. This isn't terrifying at all. Using an Avadon splash screen because its art is more photorealistic compared to other Spiderweb games. Though I'm sure you could get some delightful abominations by animating art from other games. (Here's the usual disclaimer about how MyHeritage and other ancestry sites make a profit by selling your data, and how they've also had big security breaches in the past, so be cautious about giving them personal data. Burner accounts are your friend.)
  5. Wow, I can't believe it's been three years already!
  6. Well, my resolutions for this past year included stuff like "spend more time with friends" and "get back into tabletop RPGs". So I'm too scared to make any resolutions for 2021.

  8. If I have to eat a sausage, I 100% want to know what goes into making it. Anyway, I'm not sure how the analogy is supposed to apply to election regulations. Are you saying it's best to be blissfully ignorant of the, um, ratfrigging that goes on behind the scenes? Speaking of ratfrigging, what do y'all think the over/under is for the number of Brooks Brothers Riot-style events in the days to come?
  9. I know it's a pandemic and all, but daaaaang people. Every four years I try to understand the US election process, and every four years I come away horrified by all the different state regulations (among other things). It's made me very glad for the existence of Elections Canada.
  10. I think we ask this question every time we do this. In the past, I interpreted it as "is modern agriculture causing crop diversity loss", but reading this it's talking about something slightly different.
  12. I realize Microsoft isn't just entertainment, but has there ever been an anti-trust case made after an entertainment acquisition? I just don't see an anti-trust case being made against, say, Disney (for more reasons than one).
  13. I've also been wrapping up my beta test today (after stopping halfway through and letting it fall by the wayside for far too long -- sorry Vox!). Regarding the error with SDF (50, 30): the second coordinate for SDFs has to be between 0 and 29. This might only be a problem on Windows, I dunno. Anyone else who wants to beta test will have to replace it with another set of coordinates (I picked (51, 0) and it seems to work) in `t10Upper roof.txt` and `t2Upper.txt`. Not quite finished yet (I'm in the crypts) but that and debug mode seem to be the only game-breaking bugs so far. Though
  14. I haven't tried it myself, but apparently you can get it to work on Windows tablets that have an x86 processor. https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/afa69f/mtg_arena_on_a_windows_tablet/ Otherwise it works for both Windows and Mac on desktop.
