But it is interesting to see static being pushed as "the next big thing" (though in fairness, I read that much more as title clickbait than qualitative evaluation). I know Jekyll is getting a lot of traction these days, and it creates some pretty interesting options for site design that are very different from "the norm."
What do you think? Are we going to see a substantial uptick in static generators? What selection criteria do you think make the biggest difference in choosing static vs. dynamic systems?
My wife had something from the Benghazi congressional hearing on CSPAN or some such place, and Clinton was there answering "questions" from the congressional committee. And let me just say this, her poise and calmness was something I have to admit I probably wouldn't have had.
As a congressional committee, the amount of unprofessionalism, contempt, aggression, disrespect, and flat out argumentative nature they displayed in the roughly two minutes of the hearing I saw towards her was shocking to me, and I'm pretty hard to shock in the political arena. These men were not congressmen trying to get to the truth of an issue, they were bullies with taller chairs and microphones who just wanted to show how much their truth differed from hers, and that clearly their words were more important. It wasn't a hearing, it was a freak show.
Two minutes into the kind of "questioning" they were doing, and I would have stood up, flipped them off, and walked out. I would have told every camera and microphone along the way that if that's what leadership in DC looks like, then both Congress and the voters that put them there should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. It was insulting to me, as a viewer, to see these "leaders" exhibiting such a lack of candor and professionalism. I don't care if they were Democrats or Republicans. I don't care if it was Clinton they were "questioning," or Bush. That behavior is inexcusable at that level of our society, and when that's all the standard is that has to be upheld to get elected to congress, it's no god damned wonder things are so shitty in our country and our leadership's ethics. And it sets the worst possible example for those that feign interest in leading.
Check out CypherCaster Magazine issue #3. It's got the last part of the Holsetnwal series for The Strange by some great fiction by a discussion on GM Intrusions by some new descriptors by me, that Numenera adventure I mentioned above, and even more!
If a player is missing, the following session they are paid 1 XP for retconning an explanation why they were away and how they caught up with the other PCs. They do this under peril of extreme ridicule for lame excuses!
I issue a second XP if the explanation is particularly in-character, creative, funny or otherwise appealing.

I am an avid biker and like a lot of outdoor stuff (you know, camping, tennis, fishing...well, I guess that's not really a lot, but you get the idea. Stop judging me!). I also play the guitar in my spare time. I try to do a little bit of everything. I hope to also stay active with theatre and radio through my twilight years (yeah, I'm not so old, but sometimes it sure feels like it). Anything where I could work with and help people would be good though. I have a lingering urge to get back on a volunteer fire department.
I love my '01 Lincoln LS, but have a 1972 Triumph TR6 convertible and a 1953 Chevy pickup which I am restoring. I do appreciate a nice car.
Finally got that piece of paper from a college that says I know stuff, and working full time at PSU after an exhaustive job hunt. I like my job a whole lot. I also spend too much time doing things other than what I should be at the moment. Like typing this thing. And that last sentence. And this sentence. See how easy it is to distract yourself from responsibility?
