Sharing Time Together, Apart: Watch2Gether
Let's not mince words - we're more separated than ever before. As we've become virtually connected, we're often friends, family, or lovers with people who are further and further apart. And anything you can do that creates some kind of connection is worthwh...

Volume Normalization Made Easy with MPD (and a few scripts)
If you use MPD (Music Player Daemon) like I do to provide whole-house audio or to give you simple command-line music queuing , these two scripts won't look like much, but they're definitely useful. I wrote a wrapper script to help mp3gain and abe2id3.py do ...

You gotta hear this: The Fallen London OST (and you should probably give Fallen London a shot too!)
Okay, first, let me put Fallen London in context for you here. They use the term "browser game" to describe it, which frankly put me off of it for the longest time. I played Sunless Sea ("Lose your mind. Eat your crew.") first, and thought it a rather nice ...

Mrs. French's cat is missing. A Review: Pontypool
Just listen to me. In some ways, I'm cheating by including Pontypool , as Alasdair Stuart wrote about it for the "Tropospheric Outlaw" issue of recompose . But it was while formatting his essay for the issue that I first learned about it... and have been an...

Really, the guidelines are there for a reason.
I'm simply stunned by the people who don't follow submission guidelines. I don't mean vague things like "themes" or genre elements or stuff like that. I mean basic things. For example, I've written twice about cover letters ( here , and more recently here )...

Make the Web Nice and Dark (and still work) - updated Stylish styles
If you use Stylish (and if not, why aren't you? Get it for Firefox and Chrome ) and like dark global themes, you might want to check out my global dark web theme . It's a fork (meaning I'm starting with someone else's template), but I'm slowly making it my ...

Odds and Ends: Optimizing SSHFS, moving files into subdirectories, and getting placeholder images
And to wrap up this week of various little scripts and tweaks, we're going to collect some SSHFS tweaks and two single-use-but-damn-when-you-need-it-you-need-it scripts I wrote. First, the subdirectory moving script : It takes every file in a directory, cre...

Prisma - or as a nerd might call it, !(#nofilter)
Prisma is a smartphone app (free) that is pretty much the opposite of #nofilter. It's kind of like having some of the "artistic" filter effects of a more sophisticated image editing program without any of the fine-tuning controls. The end result is that whe...

The Soundtrack To the Future We Were Supposed To Get, Or: "Stranger Things" got me listening to synthwave
I can imagine the elevator pitch for Stranger Things going something like this: "Okay, we're going to mash together Escape From Witch Mountain , It , The Goonies , and E.T. into an eight-episode miniseries with a retro 80's soundtrack..." The series lives u...

There's a lot of reasons I like this game, but one of the most awesome ones is seeing people (including groups of friends and whole families) out and active in the neighborhood. And if you haven't considered it yet, they're ...

Evolution doesn't mean that greed is "good" - it can actually mean the opposite
Much like functionalism and economics, evolution - and especially evolutionary sociology like sociobiology - is frequently co-opted not as an explanatory model, but as a justification for someone’s own behavior. You’ll frequently hear references to The Self...

I've always had a decent to good experience here compared to other urgent care centers. While the waits are often longer than you'd wait with an appointment at a doctor's office, they're far less than at the ER.
