March going out like a lion in Seattle: thunder and thick hail accumulation.

Some ice still hanging around this morning, but isolated to our part of town.  Kind of like a Tucson thunderstorm with a small footprint.

From the article:

"We think now, in our era of wars that only happen elsewhere, of 1938 as safely pre-war. But it can’t have felt like it. A bombing blitz on London was seriously expected to follow Munich. Someone came to Hammersmith and told the medical school to be ready for 57,000 casualties in London that weekend. And Vaughan realised, immediately, that casualties would need blood. They would need a lot of blood."
The extraordinary life of Janet Vaughan, who changed our relationship with blood.

Results of the ginger beer episode.  Nice and bubbly after 30h at room temperature, now in fridge with a matching companion bottle.

Really not a fan of the degree that supplement gives the Eidolon an active personality. A 50 point Power shouldn't turn off when you thwart the Power's unknowable intentions. At that price, it really needs to be reliable.

I've been fooling around with Smiorgan's City Accelerator a little as a structured generative tool for adventure settings. Intriguing. http://www.departmentv.net/city-accelerator/ 
This is a collection of articles for the City Accelerator tool, mainly gathered here for my convenience, but may be of some interest. One: Introduction · Two: Axes · Three: Ranking · Four: Qualifiers · Five: Workflow · Six: Adding Axes · Seven: Sustaining Creation · Eight: Area Knowledge ...

So far I've done the felt banana slices and blueberries.  After the orange slices, maybe the apples or melon balls or strawberry wedges.

Showed my new copy of Microscope to a colleague at work who's a tabletop gamer; he might get a copy to do story gaming with his son, who is starting to get interested in storytelling themes.

Fantastic animated visualization of some interesting algorithms, along with discussion.

http://bost.ocks.org/mike/algorithms/
Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an algorithm, we don't merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset. Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with ...

Picked up a copy of the Microscope RPG ruleset (via the guest wi-fi at our Friendly Local Game Store before opening hour).  It looks like it could be an interesting (faster, more interactive) alternative to Lexicon for setting building.

There have been some online games of Microscope. Mostly you just need something to represent the index cards.

Lexicon is born online, though, so it does have the advantage there. Microscope assumes synchronous play, Lexicon doesn't.

Successfully home-brewed ginger beer from a recipe tacked on as the coda from a Ruby computer language community talk from Ryan Davis.

The hardest and messiest part was actually getting the syrup (full of sticky shredded ginger) into the bottles.

Phil Nicholls' streamlined version of Lexicon for roleplaying game setting creation, based on a game we played together as archived here: http://www.eichemiller.com/cgi-bin/deepcourt?DeepCourtAndHighCourt .

Perfectly fine. Annoyed by the collision damage waiver upsell outside in the rain. Otherwise, good price, fine economy car, useful (though separately billed) Seattle bridge toll service.
