Although this is G+ and Facebook may be anathema to some of you, I nevertheless want to announce that I've started a new public Facebook group for the #violin, called the Violin Lounge: https://www.facebook.com/groups/violin.lounge/

Although Facebook already has a large group called Facebook Violinists, it has strict moderation policies that aim to make a large group manageable, but which also reduce its ability to be community-oriented rather than being highly focused on questions-and-answers. The Violin Lounge, as implied by its name, is intended to be more welcoming, more casual, and very lightly moderated.

Please share this with your friends who have an interest in the violin (whether classical or other style)!

In an attempt to start using G+ more, I'm adding a wide swathe of people, and then doing active filtering by circles. We'll see how that goes, with a broader share but vastly narrower set of people that I read.

For those of you who aren't on Facebook:

I'm contemplating the idea of pick-up D&D4e, run via Roll20.net's virtual tabletop, for one-hour weeknight sessions, probably relatively late (after people's kids have presumably been put to bed).  There would be a campaign framework that supports the idea of a fluidly-composed group and single-encounter sessions, likely mostly based on the idea of 'who feels like gaming tonight?'

Comment if you're interested, and note if you're interested in doing this on an occasional basis, or more regularly. (My schedule is too chaotic to support a real regular campaign time, I think, and I suspect most of yours are, too.)

For +Brian MacDonald and other Lego collectors: What are you doing for displayable storage of built sets, particularly large sets?

I'm thinking about tall display cabinets with adjustable shelves, with a glass or acrylic front, and possibly glass or acrylic sides as well. But most collectibles cabinets seem to be both narrow and shallow, which won't work for Lego. Some other option would be workable, too, but it needs to be fairly high-density.

(I've started collecting again, and the sets are accumulating with frightening rapidity. Figure that this has to be big enough to handle the modular buildings, large-scale theme sets, Star Wars UCS sets, etc.)
