I plan to read this after work, but could anyone with know-how let me know if there are any important points missed or exaggerated here? I don't care about earning potential. I can about ease to learn/use/read and if it could make something like a mobile game.

For a first language, PHP is terrible, and it doesn't do anything that other languages can do better. (Python, Ruby on Rails, etc)

My current opinion is that JavaScript and web is a good way to get started. You can do entire apps in JavaScript+HTML+CSS without a lick of server-side code. (If you do need a server-side data store, I'd suggest looking at CouchDB and related. You can use it directly from JavaScript without having to write any server-side code.) This way, you can get started and see results and make useful things very quickly.

For a general-purpose language, meaning useful in many scenarios and use-cases, I'd suggest Python. In addition to my personal favorite, it's easy to learn, extremely powerful, has a bajillion libraries, and good tutorials.

As my last "big toy" purchase for myself in the foreseeable future I will be taking an extra arcade machine off my brother's hands. Because Woo! Dance Maniax! Coolest Basement evar.

A comparison of the rock targets the range provides and the larger ones the SCA uses. I tried to darken the lines around,the zones on the small one to show where the colors would "normally"be.

Funny thing is I generally got 18 to 25 point on the 40cm (small one) using IT"S colors. Which is the same-ish score I got shooting at 20 yards (on the big targets) when I stopped in September. It true; aim small, hit small.

Spider Bro is dead =( it was bound to happen, but it's still sad. I think he was an orb weaver spider and he's been living above my sink since early July. I did consider buying some ants online to see him through the winter with but I didn't. I think his last bug was a couple weeks ago... Anyway, RIP Spider Bro; Thanks for catching the bugs in the kitchen all summer and fall!

He was a good spider, and a good bro.

be careful what you wish for! Usually on Redditgifts I complain my exchange partners are poor because they provide nearly no information and leave me guessing to get them a random gift. This time I got someone who is SUPER knowledgeable about the gift swaps theme and I'm intimidated about finding something good! It's a medieval themed swap, and here's the some of their intro:

"I've got a PhD in medieval studies, my research is on how people's ideas about the medieval world are shaped by films about the period."

"[. . .] So, the thing is that I've probably seen every medieval film ever made (so please don't get me another one!), but I am always a fan of interesting intersections between the medieval world and the present.

[. . .] Sure, the pageantry and fantasy of the period is great. But the most profound stuff, for me, is reaching across the vastness of time and finding yourself."

Can of my SCA friend have a good idea on where I can find neat intersections of the medieval world and present? At this point the best I can think of is like, a cook book, or like a Tafl set...

I could use another brain to bounce some variables off of tonight to help me flesh things out for my tabletop game tomorrow.  Anyone free to chat online tonight?
