I put square pegs in round holes. It's rule interpretation, not rule-breaking. Lecture to follow.

For the Shakespeare geeks a couple of online references.

http://www.opensourceshakespeare.org/ has complete Text of the Plays, Sonnets and Poems. Searches including a Concordance, characters.

http://www.nosweatshakespeare.com/ has Plot Summaries of the Plays, Sonnets and Poems, quotes and several other resources. Very useful when trying to remember what play was that in? List of quotes including a list of insults.

For the worker bee. Great site for cleaning up copied text.
My Favorite is 'Remove Line Breaks'. Copy and paste text from a pdf and it removes all the pesky line breaks and you can copy and paste into to your favorite word processor.

I've a question for the group. First is there an errata set out there for 4th edition?

I came across a conflict in the rules. Anyone have any idea which is correct?

6. Damage (pg 93)
Armor can also be flexible or hard. Flexible armor may resist penetration, but will transmit blunt force. Bullets and fragments that don’t penetrate flexible ballistic armor can still do blunt damage. This is equal to one point of blunt damage for every 5 points absorbed.

Armor Types (pg 93)
Flexible armor is effective against penetrative damage, but half of the damage it prevents from such an attack is translated into blunt damage.

Damage (Pg 100)
Partial protection from armor also occurs when bullet impacts are converted to blunt trauma by modern ballistic armor. The damage the character sustains is equal to half the damage absorbed by the armor.

The Time Traveler’s Guide to Midcentury House Hunting.
Great article from the Journal of the AIA. Plan Books, fixture catalogs and design concepts from the early 1950's. Downloadable through Archive.org Building Technology Heritage Library.

Really have to hand it to the folks at Google's Project Fi.

I have a Nexus 6P that failed and not to go into the issue too much started giving me a black screen after going through the lock screen.  I called them Thursday morning, 11 Feb, about the issue went through several steps including a factory reset and finally decided I needed a replacement. Ordered the replacement about 10 am my time and activated a backup phone, old S3 and went to work late.  Now today, Friday 12 Feb, about 10:30 the replacement phone arrived a the office.
24 freaking hours.

Caught me by surprise, I didn't bring the dead phone with me, so going to have to go home a lunch to get the sim.

During all the conversations I called or emailed from the ProjectFi and was never on hold more that a minute.

Exceptional and knowledgeable people and amazing service.
(Have to take back some of the Google annoyance I've been harboring here lately).
