I was issued a new Thinkpad at work. First new new laptop in........ever? And boy, have batteries come a long way.

(That said, 2 steps forward and 1 step back, as the battery is built into the laptop and is not user replaceable).

I've had this shirt for 7 or 8 years now, and I finally got asked to change by a conference organizer. It's apparently "a bit confronting"

GNU World Order: ZFS (again) and KMail (those are two separate topics, don't let the "and" fool you).

One more episode to go and I'll have released 1 episode a week for the entire year of 2018. Next up: more of the same, only in 2019.

I was building a dragonborn PC the other day and noticed that 5e Draconic races don't have an official history yet. Their history is rich, and gets a small mention in the 5e handbook, but it's not clear how the evil origins of 1e/2e Draconians lead to a playable good race in 5e.
