This is how the vast majority of people view rpg products. When they pick up a new one, they assume that this will be their overall experience. I don't think that's a problem, really, but the tone of most rpg rule sets come off as if the author is completely oblivious that the fact that this is the case. If I'm reading someone's game book, I'd like to see some indication that they've not only played the game themselves, but that they've paid attention to other people that have as well. The less actual play is involved in the development process, the more people will have to do without thier genius in favor of whatever actually works.

This is funny, though it doesn't mention SQL. Fortunately ...
C was the great all-arounder: compact, powerful, goes everywhere, and reliable in situations where your life depends on it. C++ is the new C — twice the power, twice the size, works in hostile environments, and if you try to use it without care and special training you will probably crash.

Funny on the surface and the subtext - especially using military provisioning requirements to settle language war arguments.

In 2004 William Shatner released a sprechstimme album called Has Been, which included a cover version of Pulp's "Common People," with backing vocals by Joe Jackson. It's an excellent rendition, and it inspired LordRicco666 to edit a video to accompany it that consists of clips from Star Trek that are timed and themed to match the rhythm and lyrics. Great job! 
What makes this edit truly incredible is the attention to detail in matching shots with the lyrical content, even nailing specific lines of the song to lines spoken by Kirk in the show. Check twenty-seven seconds in where “I want to live,” or forty-seven seconds in where “I’ll see what I can do” sync perfectly. The amount of work that went into this is apparent and astounding.

Just watch it…

Story
Tagline
Coincidence does not imply Conspiracy.
Introduction
Yes, please, I'd love another cup of coffee. My spectrum is broad.  I have ALL the Gs

I don't like trying to list interests, because I am mostly interested in "details that are awesome" and "the big picture".  I like to collect specialists and put them together like puzzles.  I like to curate interesting stuff.  I love talent and genius in most of its forms.  I have been informed sternly by an eight-year-old that I laugh too much.  I like to leave random comments and sometimes jump in your conversations.  I am a person, not a brand.

I have a reasonable degree of experience and/or education in traditional arts, comparative mythology, logic, complex adaptive systems, psychology, neuroscience, and a lot of the places where those things collide. I've worked primarily in the tech world, with emphasis on support, sysadmin, and PM roles in commerce, communications, and security, everything from casual c2c to federal robustness standards and compliance. I feel very rewarded when I am able to help identify, spec, and solve problems

I enjoy trying to predict the future (relatively short term, 1-7 years out) of things.  I'm surprisingly good at it, except I have a horrible tendency to be way off on timing.  I'm working on troubleshooting that problem, but you should probably pay less attention to claims I make about when and more attention to the paths and key event specs I imagine, since those seem to be where I'm far more accurate.  Also keep in mind it's simply a game I play, take it as advice only at your own risk. 

"Do I contradict myself?  Very well then, I contradict myself.  I am large; I contain multitudes." - Walt Whitman 
"Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy." - Joseph Campbell 

Since the social norms of G+ are still being fought out, I will mention the following: I try to leave a comment or private post for everyone I don't already know that I add these days, letting you know why I added you.  I'd be pleased if you did the same when adding me. I may be slow to circle you back, because I try to pay some attention to everyone I have circled, and must limit my adding to enable this.  I am more likely to notice you if you participate in discussions with me, and the kinds of conversations that happen on your stream are also important, since I am interactive.  I post pretty much everything here Public, so you're not missing anything. 

I am very honest and blunt. I was told I put the "b" in "subtle" long before it was a meme.  I love asking questions and figuring things out.  I am very curious.  I want to understand you.  If I ask you a lot of questions, please do not attribute to malice what is probably more properly attributed to a burning desire to "get it". If you like questions and figuring things out, you should check out the #questionable tag, which I created in an attempt to channel whatever my mind has wandered to lately into a discussion.  Think of it like a game, using I-language and nonviolent communication techniques, of exploring things, and also yourself.  You can use the tag too, if you want, and I'd love it if you tagged me in if you did. 

My comments are not a free-for-all.  Don't act like someone I have to block. 

[I use Plus primarily from the mobile browser of my phone, so my URLs are often ugly, I can't edit my own posts, and I can't tag anyone. Sorry about all that, leave Google feedback if it bothers you.  If you dislike the "jumping around", multiple columns, GIF auto-play, and Giant-Image- #ReadMore of the desktop interface, you might want to try out the mobile form on the desk browser.  Just start from: https://plus.google.com/app/basic ]
