Neat, a super powerful microscope suitable for lab use that costs a dollar to make.  Hope it works out.
Imagine if clinics in developing countries were equipped with an inexpensive yet durable tool that could help medical personnel identify and diagnose a variety of deadly diseases like Malaria, Chagas disease, or Leishmaniosis? For millions of people around the world waiting to be diagnosed and treated, such a tool could be a life-saver. Manu Prakash, [...]

A couple of times during game sessions, I've mentioned working on my own HTML game aid for those who can't run Excel or want something to play unofficial content with.  I'm happy to say that it's in working and completely usable state right now, including the randomizer, but just needs me to continue adding the decks into it.  Right now I've got the base set, the mini expansions, and Rook City's heroes, environments, and Spite.  I had been planning on having it more or less ready by now minus the randomizer, which I had planned to put off until later, but got sidetracked by some ideas on how to build the randomizer.  What started a quick sit down to try some things turned into a five hour coding session.  Hopefully I"ll be able to try it with you guys in another week.

And now complete up through Shattered Timelines.  Once Vengeance Heroes and Environments are done, I'll release the first public version.  I'll take a bit more time to get the villains done.

Hello all.  Saw this group reference on Board Game Geek, so here I am.  I'd like to join you all for a game some time, but unfortunately when I pulled out my old webcam I've found that the drivers won't work in Windows 7, so that plan is out for now.

I don't see any discussion of the fan made unofficial expansion The Cauldron (available on Board Game Geek) but you might want to check it out.  It's pretty awesome.

Catch you all later.

Those Cauldron decks look very interesting! I'm certainly interested but I'll wait until the set's completely finished before I decide whether to order - it does depend on price, to be honest.

Currently Watching Tomica Heroes Rescue Force.  Really like it so far.  A refreshing change to Super Sentai, while still following much of the general formula.  Instead of fighting the monster of the week though, they stop the disaster of the week, and the bad guys are obstacles to get past rather than enemies to defeat.

Okay, I make one comment on a Youtube and now I'm seeing it popping up on Google +.  Some things should remain separate, I think, especially since I have no continued interest in that particular topic.  (I was warning the troll feeders that they were just troll feeding and have no further interest in whatever might happen there now.)

I specifically avoided using my Plus account on Youtube too.  I like Google Plus and all, but this is the kinda thing that may persuade me to leave it if they don't cut this kind of nonesense out.

And here it is, the first version of my html alternative to Spreadsheet game trackers.  It's probably go plenty of typos and such, plus it really needs to be straightened up to look nicer, but it should be functioning.  A glitch in Chrome prevents one of the features from working, but if you don't mind manually setting the hps of everything, it's still useable.

Please report all the problems you find.  Feel free to modify or use it for any purpose whatsoever.  Everything in here not already under copyright to Greater Than Games is hereby released to the public domain.

Glad you like it.  This version has some pretty dumb glitches and oversights in it though.  The version I'm working on now will be much better.

I should point out that this would never exist without your spreadsheet.  I got the idea from you and I even used a similar layout, so you're really to thank for this.

Got the cards I ordered printed up of the unofficial The Cauldron expansion.  Printer's Studio did a great job and the cards came out wonderfully.  Some very interesting and unique cards sets which really feels like it should be an official expansion.  I'll tell you what I think once I get that chance to play with some of them.

Doesn't sound like I have to send anything back either, so at least I can use the marked cards in the meantime.

I've been wanting to do this for a few years, but now I've gone and done it. For Christmas this year, I'd like to give you all a recording of my reading "John Milton's On the Morning of Christ's Nativity." Yes, I probably slaughtered some of the foreign names. Sorry about that. Have a blessed Christmas.

All my videos and clips from past posts are going to disappear.  I thought Dailymotion would be easier to work with, but now a couple of clips from old shows have been flagged and removed there as well, and unlike Youtube, there's no option for appeal.  I'm done.  I understand companies not wanting people to steal their stuff, but it's ridiculous when you can't even share clips and stuff that would fall under the Fair Use Doctrine without being scream at by automated computer system for being a lawbreaking copyright infringer, so I'm done.  I was going to post a fan series going into the history of the entire series of Sentai, but it's not work it for me having to fight legally against all the big companies like this, or more accurate, against their computers.  That's it.  I'm done.

My new computer keeps crashing or hanging up while browsing the web, so I am now reluctantly trying out Chrome.  No hangups so far, and I added a few extensions to make it more Firefox-like, so it's okay for now.  We'll see, I guess.
