Evidently it's a real truck.

When our Mother Nature laughs around,
When even the deep blue heavens look glad,
And gladness breathes from the blossoming ground?"

Ian Bogost sings the praises of old tech.

"I Wrote This on a 30-Year-Old Computer"


"A computer was a tool for work, and diversion too, but it was not the best or only way to write a letter or to fritter away an hour. Computing was an accompaniment to life, rather than the sieve through which all ideas and activities must filter. That makes using this 30-year-old device a surprising joy, one worth longing for on behalf of what it was at the time, rather than for the future it inaugurated."

What D&D Race Are You?

Follow the flow chart. I wind up as Half-Elf.

Yeah, I'm boring.

Back in the day, when I played regularly and wasn't being DM, one of my characters was a half-giant.  This was before I found out half-giants weren't even allowed.  One of my regular party co-player's played a halfling.  One favorite fighting move we had was to put the halfling on my shield, and I'd frisbee down the hall at the monsters.  We LAUGHED!!!   :) :)

Ah, those were the days.
