My wargaming partner and I have been exploring Tom Russell's _Supply Lines of the American Revolution_ for the last couple weeks. It's a fascinating take on the American Revolution that manages to pack a lot of the feels of how logistics informs the campaign of 18th century armies into a very lightweight system. The green cubes are food, the tan "war supplies" and you need both for an army to operate.
@fipplej Welcome aboard! I love the avatar. Beautiful instrument.

What the fuck Facebook? I mean holy shit. This has to stop.
Is there such a thing as #opensource building plans? I want to build a small workshop in my backyard.
Oh boy do I dislike the premiere feature for YouTube videos.
It's like a really cool video pops up in your feed only to tell you that you can't watch it until later, meanwhile taking up a space in your subs feed.
At least most of the people I follow just try it out once and realise it for the mistake it is.
6 years, 14 re-writes, & 2 name changes later, the weather discs, bag, score tokens, & island tiles are gone from the game you see here. Publishers were only interested in the game equipment which I tacked on to add a nature theme. So I wrote a new, unrelated set of rules, from scratch.
Perhaps it could be said that 6 years of work resulted in GaiaVora, but I have only been working on GaiaVora for a year.

Do you have a custom theme your users like? Is that theme code available? I would love to add some more themes to Friend Camp.

Things we need to start, and stop, doing (thread):
* Don't upgrade your phone when the newer model comes out. Hang on to your handset as long as possible.
* Same for your car, unless you're upgrading for something more environmentally friendly (and consider the environmental impact that creating that new car had and if it's worth upgrading right now, or hanging on to your old one for a bit),
WhatsApp is next - and it's been coming for a while Show more
Facebook is rolling messaging between WhatsApp Instagram and Facebook messenger into one.
While they claim to add end-to-end encryption (let's see about that), the silent part is about profiles, contact lists and access.
Internally, the founders of WhatsApp left over this and employees are rebelling. That tells you a lot about how user-hostile these changes will be.
Zuck wants more data. #DeleteWhatsApp.
