@klaatu I don't know if anyone else has the problem or if anyone has bug reported it, but C&C is not downloading for me.

How to use MapTool.

Includes Fog of War, how to find free tokens, much more.

@thaj , thanks for prompting this one.

When your favorite character from Chinese legend gets crossed with a Gundam, it becomes an instabuy.

How does I program in Racket? Maybe I was wrong about workflows? Isomorphic keyboards are dope. How can I music again?

It's another Thaj Rambles y'all



My hot take on Maker Media shutting down: I don't want to take away from all the good they did in introducing kids to hacking in the educational space, but I will never forgive them for "sanitizing" the idea of hackerspaces into makerspaces. They just further cemented the idea that "hacking" is only a negative.

Travelling for work is hard. Leftists are Adobe junkies and need to get off that shit (SPOILERS: everyone needs to get off that shit). Rain sucks. Lyle helps me make this a REAL podcast.

It's all in the latest episode of Thaj Rambles...


Also, if you want to be real bougie you can subscribe to an RSS feed now on the site.

Academia is trash. You shouldn't try to make sense of the world like you're writing a research paper. Go out and listen to people. See what they want you to hear, and what they can't admit to themselves. This is the way to make sense of the world.

(2/2) More powerful FOSS tools exist than Adobe can ever be.It's just a learning curve and you're free from the problem. There are people willing to help you get over the learning curve. In fact there are people who would be willing to help anyone regardless of political ideology.

@emerican (just @'ing Emerican because he's the the most active BreadTuber on Mastodon that I know)

(1/2) In my research deep dive into leftist spaces on YouTube I keep hearing the same refrain. How do we get Adobe access to creators who can't afford it? I would use Linux if it had Adobe tools, ect.I cannot fathom how a community that is so entrenched in being ethical is so tied to a platform for convenience sake, that is antithetical to their beliefs.

After putting up with Google's shenanigans with Chrome for far too long (the latest being their plan to prevent ad-blocking extensions from working properly), I've happily switched back to Firefox as my main browser (which I do every few years, ever since switching to Mozilla Firebird in the early 2000s). It has gotten much better since last time! Snappier, less resource hogging, and great extensions (besides the musts like uBlock Origin and HTTPS Everywhere, I recommend Multi-Account Containers, Dark Reader, Side View...)

OK everyone. With the help of @x1101 I was finally able to get my website and MP3 and OGG RSS feeds up for my new podcast. If you want to check it out here it is.

A few months ago, Microsoft decided to collaborate with Google and drop its web engine in favor of Google's.

Earlier this week, Google blocked all ad blockers, and now Microsoft has de-listed UBlock Origin (a powerful ad-blocker). Without real choice, monopolies will dictate what you see and do on the Internet.

Real choice comes with Free/Open Source Software.

Sorry for the podcast spam ya'll. I had to edit the originals and I didn't realize that it would bring them all back to the top.

So I did a thing. I've started recording an new podcast, which is essential me rambling about whatever I want to. After @archer72 did a test with some of his own audio I though I would use the Fediverse to make it available, at least until I get off my lazy rear and get a site and RSS feed set up. Enjoy at your own risk.


Here is the second episode of me rambling about whatever. Apologies for the sound quality. I recorded while I was driving. <<CW for the audio: Very non-specific talk of political ideologies>>


Another episode! More rambling about an IKEA adventure, the value of community, and growing stuff.


I'm back again with another episode. This time...Anticipating a holiday visit to a new temple. Book review of "The Conquest of Bread" (a.k.a The Bread Book) by Peter Kropotkin.
