Gotta love lines of indentikit stormtroopers enforcing anti-anonymity laws too. Buddy, your whole public identity is a mask.

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

That sort of frame rate jank is generally runaway garbage collection due to some memory pool or other being slightly too small, or possibly too big if java is involved. No idea what Steam is playing at.

This all sounds like a fine example of what I'm struggling to say over in Invisible. Try not to grow up into that guy, it's sort of counterproductive.

GoComics 'temporarily' halted their RSS feeds forever ago with a view to replacing them with something more obnoxiously monetised. Apparently no-one told them the internet immune response would generate a dozen pirate feeds. https://www.comicsrss.com/preview/nancy (I recommend Inoreader for comics, ...

Honestly, I don't believe the communist media shadow government can even be stopped at this point. We're just going to have to burn down the planet and start over.

I don't know the internal realpolitick of the FBI, but could Mueller not just tell him to fuck off and carry on going to work like nothing happened? It seems likely that no-one would be keen on enforcing it.

Re: Hot game deals

The Original Sin games, multiplayer, are the closest videogames have ever come to the feel of actual tabletop D&D sessions with your mates. Unfortunately, they also replicate the thing where adulthood makes consistent group timetables impossible to arrange and you never finish a damned campaign.

Re: Game hacks

Yeah, keep the notes, rip the maps & sprites, get some sleep, and remix them in an engine that won't fight you every step of the way. FFVI_Explore for the Steam version is pretty useful for step two. http://www.ff6hacking.com/wiki/doku.php?id=ff6a:utils

I'd allow a charisma roll on the basis that the locals had reflexively dismissed enough prophecies for any suitably dramatic pronouncement by their seer to trigger the same reaction.

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

This is just from random internet chat, but I've read a few suggestions recently that openly corrupt capitalist states, eg: Russia, generate more experienced and effective civilian resistance where in places like America much of the population can assume it's never going to affect them and theirs.
