Frac - 3D Tetris

A random conversation reminded me of a computer game I played in the early 90's: Frac (3D Tetris). I fired up the browser version and I was surprised that my fingers remembered how to manipulate the pieces. Good times.

Game of Thrones - Risk!

This is perfect... Game of Thrones version of Risk. I never played the board game version, but I remember several of us gathered around a computer in the early 90's to play on someone's Mac in the dorm.

Dragon Magazine

I saw this post at the Ace of Spades and it reminded me of my younger days reading Dragon Magazine.

And, of course, I had to Google "Dragon Magazine" and I found this site, which has all the covers and details of each issue. It is unreal the information they've cataloged there for each issue.

Free Dungeons & Dragons Player's and Dungeon Master's Manuals

Download them here:
As Mike Mearls explained in Legends & Lore, the Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons is a PDF (over 100 pages, in fact) that covers the core of the game. It runs from levels 1 to 20 and covers the cleric, fighter, rogue, and wizard, presenting what we view as the essential subclass for each. It also provides the dwarf, elf, halfling, and human as race options; in addition, the rules contain 120 spells, 5 backgrounds, and character sheets. 
But the best part? The Basic Rules is a free PDF. Anyone can download it from our website. We want to put D&D in as many hands as possible, and a free, digital file is the best way to do that.
I used to have some D&D stuff - that was before my Sportster Modem collection started.

No Radio News

Nothing in the radio world is inspiring me at the moment, so you get this...

Game of Thrones character name is the fastest growing baby name - Arya.

A geography game using Google Street View - GeoGuessr.

Download your 3-D gun plans - at Joe Huffman's place.

The truth about IT people - Google Skills.

Say Uncle's worst nightmare - Unstoppable.

Ellen does security - Password Minder.

Almost radio related - DIY AUX port.

Baofeng, but still not a radio.

HP rep, in talking about new side docking stations for their laptops, described it as looking like a credit card imprint machine. If I was any younger, I probably would not know what she is talking about.

A weeks worth of groceries from around the world.

A split-screen interview - because we can!

Because I have the sense of humor of a 12 year-old: ship my pants!

Curiosity – What’s Inside The Cube

"Curiosity – What’s Inside The Cube" is an app for the iPhone. Don't. Download. It. I read about it in Wired. It is mindless and a huge waste time. Gotta go. I've got little cubs to click.

Where is the line?

I'm struggling with this one. Rachel Held Evans - "God and our political platforms..."
"Because God is not a flag pin.
God is not a beam in a political platform.

God’s name is not something to use to score political points. It's not something to throw around lightly or to use as a weapon against a political opponent."
Where is the line between God being a part of everything we do and using God to fulfill our own wants? Where is the line between openly expressing our faith and offending others? Sometimes the line is clear.

Recently there has been a discussion about prayers before college football games as some schools are replacing it with a moment of silence. My libertarian side says that is a good thing. My practical side says people need to have thicker skin than to be offended by a 30 second prayer. My Christian side hates to see God removed from another part of my life.

And if we are going to ban prayers before games, should we also stop playing the National Anthem?

Let the Wikipedia Games Begin!

Wikiwars... I thought it was going to be about making battling updates to controversial wiki. Instead, you start on a random page then navigate as quickly as possible to another randomly chosen page. You can only navigate by clicking the links within the current wiki - no searching or using the menu bars. Generally you race head to head with someone using the same start and destination pages, but I just played around in a solo match. I couldn't (easily) get from the start to the destination page, but I tried going the other way and was successful in a relatively few clicks.

King’s Quest 3 Remake

I loved the King's Quest games. I rocked them on my IBM PCjr. And they are remaking KQ3!

(And don't look at the date on the Slashdot page because that will tell you how long I've been trying to get some of these things posted. Probably means I'll never actually play it either.)

Bye Bye Game Consoles

First, they came for our dead tree books and I did nothing. Now they are coming for our gaming consoles.

That's okay. I only use my Wii to stream NetFlix. Oh wait, we canceled NetFlix. (Not really because of the pricing change, but rather we just watch so little TV now.)
