    As much as Drew Devault sometimes rubs me the wrong way, I really like Sourcehut's model. One of these days I'll make time to try it out.

    I was playing a hunter turned explorer who lived in the mountain pass between Whiterun and Riverwood. I had a little camp wedged in between some boulders with a tent and a tanning rack and a fireplace and everything. It was great fun!

    I've used Calibre for years and never donated. I just chucked him some money. I need to be better about supporting excellent FLOSS.

    I just looked it up on Board Game Geek, that sounds really good and I've enjoyed other Stonemeier games! I might put that on my list!

    I went through a phase where we seemed to have board games nights with friends a couple of times a month but with the whole pandemic thing that has dried up.

    Tonight, I finally got around to trying Lanterns with my wife and we really enjoyed it. It's sort of similar to sushi go with more steps. You play lake tiles which contain lanterns and collect lantern cards based on how you place the lake tiles, then you dedicate those lanterns in different sets to gain honour (points) and at the end, who has the most honour wins.

    Honestly I went in to this article ready to get all angry about it only suggesting consumer machines like your Delonghis and your Brevilles but they actually suggest some pretty solid machines!

    I love the world, it's much more interesting to me than the later games because it's so alien.

    The biggest thing you're going to have a problem with is the combat. The combat is TOTALLY different to a modern game, it works on a dice roll so you won't necessarily hit when you think you do. Once you get used to it, it's not too bad but if you go in swinging like it's Skyrim you're gonna have a bad time.

    The highlight for me is definitely the performance increases for groundcover mods and the increased render distance. I've got a version of 0.46 modded out the ass which makes my PC sweat a bit when out in the open with lots of grass and distant meshes. I'm looking forward to trying this version!

    I've been playing a bit of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup lately. I've always really enjoyed roguelikes but I've never really tried this one!

    So far I've been having fun delving with a troll berserker as a move fast and hit things type of character. I'm still in the phase where I'm learning what enemies are most likely to ruin my day and what-have-you but it's fun!
