• 10:11 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-25 Urheberrecht . . . . Urheberrecht: USA setzen Schweiz auf «Watch List». Im Zentrum der amerikanischen Kritik an der Schweiz steht die «Piraterie» im Internet und das so genannte Logistep-Urteil des Schweizerischen Bundesgerichts (BGE 136 II 508): In diesem Urteil hatte das höchste Gericht in der Schweiz den… [de, en]

• 14:11 UTC (new) Comments on 2016-04-25 Urheberrecht . . . . Aus der G+ Diskussion, mein Kommentar zum Artikel von Felix Münter: Der Artikel suggeriert die moralische Gleichsetzung von Diebstahl und dem Anfertigen von digitalen Kopien. Wenn allerdings eine grosse Anzahl Menschen ständig das Recht verletzen, dann stellt sich auch die Frage, ob es denn wohl… [de, en]
• 13:43 UTC (diff) List of Open Books . . . . 160.85.104.70 [en]
• 10:16 UTC (new) 2016-04-25 Urheberrecht . . . . Ich empfehle das Buch Free Culture. [de]
• 09:04 UTC (new) Comments on 2005-07-27 Web . . . . I just got rid of all the Gravatars. Using the external service simply means leaking information and opening our visitors up to attacks via serving borked images.
• 08:04 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-03-17 GPG Agent and Emacs . . . . pinentry.el works for me :) http:/unix.stackexchange.comquestions55638can-emacs-use-gpg-agent-in-a-terminal-at-all/278875#278875 [en]
• 07:28 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-03-17 GPG Agent and Emacs . . . . Is that the same pinentry-emacs as https:/bugs.gnupg.orggnupg/issue2034 ? I see a pinentry-emacs is installed by pinentry 0.9.7 on my Arch box. I have the same question about what happens when if using that when outside emacs (would prefer having both possibilities). [en]

• 14:34 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-19 Immersion . . . . The discussion in that G+ thread continued. I was asked, "is there disagreement to the proposition that prep is a product of design?﻿" I don't think we ever had a disagreement. To argue that there is only sandbox and only railroad would be foolish. When I posted that link talking about sandboxes… [en]
• 07:48 UTC (new) 2016-04-20 How To Get Started With Text Mapper . . . . Here's how to get started with a random map: # Visit https:/campaignwiki.orgtext-mapper # Click Random # Click Submit # Use the Back button to make changes To get a feel for the icons available, do the following in another tab: # Visit https:/campaignwiki.orgtext-mapper # Click Help # Scroll down… [en]

• 17:20 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-19 Immersion . . . . Yeah, I don't really know how this belief in the imagined world is created. In 2014 I wrote that rolling treasure on a table made it "more real" than simply making it up, so even I as a DM benefit in some weird way. To use your nomenclature, rolling random encounters and random treasure on a… [en]
• 16:54 UTC (new) Comments on 2016-04-19 Immersion . . . . I partially agree on the "more real" part, but for a different reason. I think things created through collaboration are fun and useful, but feel soft to the players. Things fully in control of the GM, whether prepped or improv'd, feel harder and "more real". [en]
• 16:13 UTC (new) 2016-04-19 Immersion . . . . I think it's important to remember that adding more improvisation also means that you loose something. Being aware of that trade-off is important. [en]

• 06:37 UTC (new) 2016-04-16 Ranged Weapons . . . . Alexey Monk wondered about this sentence in Moldvay's Basic D&D, B25, on Google+: "Unless missile attacks are mentioned, monsters will only engage in melee combat." I let monsters use ranged wepons when I want to emphasize something. So, giants throw stones, gnolls are dangerous hunters,… [en]

• 20:35 UTC (diff) Comments on 2012-02-09 Social Skills Revisited . . . . Yeah, that could work. I guess there's also the fact that enjoy some of the monkeying around at the table and skipping those details makes the game a bit less exciting for me. [en]
• 13:01 UTC (diff) Comments on 2012-02-09 Social Skills Revisited . . . . I think that this can be worked around by not getting into the details too much. As in "you take the bandit to the side and say something to him quietly, when you both come back, the bandit is forcing a nervous smile". Or "you stand on the podium and make a speech that greatly raises everyone's… [en]
• 07:59 UTC (new) Comments on 2012-02-09 Social Skills Revisited . . . . In a recent discussion of Burning Wheel in a thread on Google+ I posted the following: I learned about Burning Wheel by reading the long threads by Judd Karlmann about two hateful orcs doing hateful things because they wanted to, and, as I discovered, because the system invited them to do it. So my… [en]

• 05:41 UTC (new) Comments on 2014-01-11 mkhexgrid . . . . These days, it's part of Homebrew: {{{ alex@Megabombus:~$brew search mkhexgrid homebrewgamesmkhexgrid ✔ alex@Megabombus:~$ brew install mkhexgrid Warning: homebrewgamesmkhexgrid-0.1.1 already installed alex@Megabombus:~$brew reinstall mkhexgrid ==> Reinstalling homebrewgamesmkhexgrid ==>… 2016-04-12 2016-04-11 2016-04-10 • 20:53 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Tomorrow: Remapping the keyboard for the Windows machine in the office. I hope to find something as easy to use as Ukulele for OSX. [en] • 19:42 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . And already I'm considering to switch the keys for comma and exclamation point, as the one that is closer to the center is easy to hit with the thumb. Hm. :) [en] • 18:22 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . OK, using Ukulele I got basically the following: {{{ +—+—+—+—+—+ +—+—+—+—+—+ |Q |W <|E >|R (|T )| |Z {|U }|I [|O ]|P €| |q 6|w 7|e 8|r 9|t 0| |z 1|u 2|i 3|o 4|p 5| +—+—+—+—+—+ +—+—+—+—+—+ |A |S |D |F |G$| |H ^|J &|K |L ×|: || |a |s |d… [en]
• 17:20 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . I really want to have a firmware where I can do the following two things in addition to what I currently know how to do: # provide a Unicode character to emit instead of a key code that gets retranslated by the operating system # allows me to determine what shifted characters emit Gah! [en]
• 15:16 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Actually, the correct invocation seems to be: {{{ make clean OPTDEFS=-DPCBDOWN KEYMAP=alex USB=devcu.usbmodem641 make upload }}} And then pressing the magic combo Fn + ESC + b. OK, refined what I want with the dot on the home row and minus going one up. {{{ +—+—+—+—+—+ +—+—+—+—+—+ |Q |W… [en]
• 09:08 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Getting into the flow! At the moment I'm trying to make changes to get some idea of what I need to do using firmware updates and what I need to do on the operating system side (all the non-ASCII characters, I guess). {{{ cd srcatreustmkkeyboardkeyboardatreus/ OPTDEFS=-DPCBDOWN make build… [en]
• 08:20 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . OK, so for a moment I thought that I didn't need to change the firmware to switch my keyboard layout. I started going through the keyboard and realized that the Fn key on my keyboard doesn't register for Ukulele, the keyboard layout editing program. Hm. [en]

• 20:25 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Also, check out this: http:/xahlee.infocomp/computerlanguagechar_distribution.html [en]
• 20:23 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . And now you have two *= ? :) By the way, some degree of redundancy is OK, especially if it is about modifiers. “I think I really need to start making some changes and do something.” Take your time! I've relearned three times before I got to my final layout, and I'm pretty sure that I am going to… [en]
• 19:53 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Well, on the Swiss German Layout, both ! and ? are shifted keys, so I didn't think too much about it. When I write text, I feel like I use more exclamation marks than question marks. Actually, I should be able to simply count occurrences on this blog. For science! Strangely enough, it's a close… [en]
• 17:39 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . More [en]
• 17:25 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . By the way, one idea about the numbers. On original dvorak layout, these were mangled: https:/upload.wikimedia.orgwikipediacommonsthumbaacKBDSKtypewriter.svg900px-KBDSKtypewriter.svg.png This makes sense… well, kinda, sorta. It is also interesting that even and odd numbers are separated. I haven't… [en]
• 12:49 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Numbers and math on Fn, no function keys, minus key appears twice (used both as hypen and minus). I would have liked to put < > « » all on the same key, but < > just don't seem important enough. On the Swiss German keyboard we get < > ≤ ≥. Interesting, but useless, I fear. {{{… [en]
• 11:41 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . I think I'm running out of space. Numbers and function keys on top: {{{ +—+—+—+—+—+ +—+—+—+—+—+ |Q ƒ|W ƒ|E ƒ|R ƒ|T ƒ| |Z ƒ|U ƒ|I ƒ|O ƒ|P ƒ| |q 1|w 2|e 3|r 4|t 5| |z 6|u 7|i 8|o 9|p 0| +—+—+—+—+—+ +—+—+—+—+—+ |A |S |D |F |G | |H }|J )|K ]|L >|* ?|… [en]
• 09:35 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Definitely. I was wondering about those function keys. On a Mac, they are so hard to hot that I can never remember how to do it and need to fumble around whenever I need to. Luckily, all the tools I use on my Windows machine seem to handle C-w and C-q to close windows or quit applications. I… [en]

• 18:03 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . * The best position for Home and End is probably on W and R. Feels very natural. I had other variants but Home & End above ← → is just best. * You've noticed correctly that Home, End, ←↓→↑, RET and all other keys like that occupy both fn+ and fn+shift+ layers. Indeed, most of these are very… [en]
• 12:14 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . OK, now I need to figure out what I want to do when a Swiss German keyboard layout is being used by the Operating System. I somehow expected there to be a way for me to specify each key, and the various modifiers, and some sort of Unicode character. But that's not how it works, I'm afraid. OK, so… [en]
• 11:03 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Ah, I see a possibility. The repository has a file called keymapqwerty2fn.c which advertises itself as «This keymap is based on the default one, but it has a momentary layer2 key on layer 1.» and there is a file called keymapqwertyml2.c which advertises itself as «This keymap allows you to hold… [en]

• 08:37 UTC (diff) Comments on 2008-04-20 Palace of the Silver Princess . . . . If I were to run it again, I'd use the Improved DIY version by Zak et al. [en]
• 07:43 UTC (diff) Comments on 2016-04-05 Atreus Ponderings . . . . Things to consider: RET being on a pinky finger is awkward. It's more important than that. But where else should it go? Perhaps like this? It's a weird place, but perhaps easier to reach. {{{ +—+—+—+—+—+—+ | | | | |" |_ | |ALT|SPC|FN |RET|' 0|- | +—+—+—+—+—+—+ }}} The minus key should… [en]
