It blows my mind that this guy is(was) related to Dimebag. A weird cross convergence of my interests in life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sg-6Cjzzg8s&t=645s
cancer, cussing, pissed
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

#BottosCon Day 2, Game 2: brought in a full game of _SpaceCorp_ in just a few minutes over 4 hours. Managed a pretty solid victory through monopolizing production in Planeteers and a few good colony choices in Starfarers. I continue to love the narrative that this game spools out.
#BottosCon Day 2, Game 3: _Wir Sind Das Volk 2+2_ the game I've been most eager to bring to the table. High tension in the waning days of the 1980s as nuclear tensions threatened to tip over the brink into the final war.
In the end, we had an East Germany who never built in wall and survived into the modern era with a functional socialist economy, breaking free of the Soviet leash, while the USA turned its ambitions toward space. A hopeful alternate history.
Got to play a 4p game of #TwilightImperium4 last Sunday. Used warp zones thanks to the SCPT game mat. Great game!
I love FOSS as much as the next person but it’s shocking how many FOSS-supporters are dangerously out of touch with the realities of cost, time, skill, and other factors related to this stuff. So many people have unrealistic demands and expectations of software, and they’re so quick to turn on the things they once liked with an almost toxic speed and degree. I’d love to see those same people try to be a solution themselves for once so they get some perspective.
@Gargron I also use favorites as likes, we're humans, we like to show appreciation, and would be nice to have a like button and a bookmark button as separate functions.
I was the second person to stop to help. Several other people saw it. Sideways glances. One person stuck around for a few minutes but was eager to leave. “You’ve got him, right?”
Fear. I know how they feel. The impulse to help is there, but you’re afraid of making a mistake. You’re afraid of getting into trouble. You have enough trouble. You can’t afford to help others.
I was afraid when I stopped too. I didn’t know what to do, but I tried something.
