Does anyone have a tally of the technological items in this edition's treasure section?

Jesus Fuck, I shouldn't be surprised, but in both Steam, and the Dark Souls games, there are so many fucking Nazi players.

APOD: 2017 July 24 - A Hybrid Solar Eclipse over Kenya

Image Credit & Copyright: Eugen Kamenew (Kamenew Photography)

Chasing solar eclipses can cause you to go to the most interesting places and meet the most interesting people. Almost. For example, chasing this eclipse brought this astrophotographer to Kenya in 2013. His contact, a member of the Maasai people, was to pick him up at the airport, show him part of southern Kenya, and even agreed to pose in traditional warrior garb on a hill as the hopefully spectacular eclipse set far in background. Unfortunately, this contact person died unexpectedly a week before the astrophotographer's arrival, and so he never got to participate in the shoot, nor know that the resulting image went on to win an international award for astrophotography. Pictured in 2013 from Kenya, the Moon covers much of the Sun during a hybrid eclipse, a rare type of solar eclipse that appears as total from some Earth locations, but annular in others. During the annular part of the eclipse, the Moon was too far from the Earth to block the entire Sun. Next month a total solar eclipse will cross the USA.

With how much I volcanicially HATE voice interfaces on the phone, there's no way I'm not immediately disabling Cortana on this new laptop.

Buying a new laptop tonight for coding and writing; does anyone have any opinions regarding the minimum specs I'd need to be able to minimally enjoy most computer games?

Things Colonel Kaffshyth has adventured recently:

- during a frogman ambush on a riverboat, berated the crew for not rowing them away from the ambush fast enough... ...while they were fighting for their lives.

- rang a bell and loudly sang to draw monsters to a jerk NPC party at night in a jungle.

- set a mummy, and subsequently a compatriot battling the mummy, on fire, and then immediately fled.

Signs you're dealing with an evil civilization:

"Where did you get the human bones that your dogs are using as chew toys?"

“My servant got them at the pet food store."
