I just watched a workman use a power hacksaw one-handed to cut some conduit, using his lap and the other hand to brace the work-piece. Somewhere, an OSHA inspector is mad, and doesn’t know why.

Whoa, hot off the rumors that my parent company (WB Games) was on and then off the sale block to Microsoft Gaming Studios, MGS went out and bought Bethesda/Zenimax -- that's a tremendous collection of talented studios (if, uh, the BSW/ZMM end was awkwardly run) -- Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Wolfenstein, Doom, Dishonored, Quake, and Starfield franches.

They better not mess with Arkane--I need me more games like Dishonored.

@csalzman / other woodworkers on here--in case you didn't see it, Lumberjack's Tree Service is having a big lumber clearance sale Oct 16-18th. "Up to 50% off slabs, live-edge, and lumber"

holy crap, the last episode of City of Angels is garbage. Jesus. So bad. Alas, what a pity.

Amongst page titles in our revised internal training documents: "[Feature X]: why did we do this to ourselves?", "[Feature Y]: why did we let clients do this to us?", and "[Feature Z]: why did we let clients do this to [third-party 1] and [third-party 2]?"

Well, we got our first “hey, have you considered selling your home? You live in a hot real estate zone” letter

Well, we announced another of our 2021 games during the PS5 showcase! hogwartslegacy.warnerbrosgames

It's, uh... it's fraught because of J.K. Rowling's gradual descent into gibbering online madness.

The weekend's painting--a second Dawnrider (the one with scales on his shield and roses beneath his horse). Cut the painting time down by a third while trying to get better panel lining, clearer sigils, and better striping on the crest, and I think I succeeded! I'd like to maintain this quality while cutting painting time down again on the next one.

I think I'm going to paint a grey horse.

I need to figure out how to download and watch this Princess Bride cast reunion / table read. The Community one was so good, and I bet this was too.

Picked up some Everest Sherpa and solved a mystery; a fine way to spend a Saturday evening.

It is _fabulous_ out on my deck right now. Stupid computer work :). Next year: a sun shade!

Rappourt has a 6L ultra-magnum of my favorite beer (St. Bernardus Abt 12), good people. It is taking great self restraint (and the sure knowledge that drinking it would kill me) for me not to buy it.

Well, now I want to write a blog post on dead card games and what I love about them.

Every night since I updated MacOS, if I let my computer sleep: "panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff801b69097c): Sleep transition timed out after 180 seconds while calling power state change callbacks."

Great work, Apple.
