Probably not going to be doing too much on Google+ anymore, since it's just an unorganized RSS feed that I can't control. 
I don't like social networking sites. I find they don't deliver what they promise. Months ago, I went back to my hometown after nearly a decade to visit some old friends and to get away from Seattle f...

And you thought your freezer was a pain to defrost...
The Fulton Market Cold Storage Company building in Chicago has been, well, storing cold things since the 1920s. But last July, the company sold the building and moved to a more modern facility outside town, leaving the old cold storage warehouse to be turned into offices. But first, the new owners had to defrost it. The Fulton Market Cold Storage building has ice-covered walls for the same reason a freezer can get covered in hard, packed ice. W...

Hm, not sure what I think of this:

"The path isn't necessarily the shortest path through the graph. Instead, priority is given to paths that travel through artists of similar popularity. If you start and end with a popular artist, you are more likely to find a path that takes you though other popular artists, and if you start with a long-tail artist you will likely find a path through other long-tail artists"

One the one hand, it's saying if you like obscure music, you get more obscure music. That I like. But I still feel like it should pick the shortest path, or give you options. I dunno.

I'm all for a Hanukah duck. It would be a nice alternative to a judgemental overseer quietly judging you year round.

Monaco is pre-orderable now! It's all Mona and co. If you've been under a rock, it's a co-op heist game that looks awesome and has rave reviews. Watch some being played by the creator at http://www.twitch.tv/andyschatz

Many people have recommended Feedly to me. I have to admit, though, NewsBlur's purported integration with Evernote has me intrigued.

This has made me happy with glee. 

AD&D 2E has been one of my favorite, most flexible systems for a number of decades now. Lately, I've since fallen in love with Dungeon World and Pathfinder, but there's still a special place in my heart for 2E.

Having it available legally as PDF's means I can share this with people more easily and readily. 
DriveThruRPG/RPGNow has classic D&D PDFs available again on a new site, DNDClassics. There are about 80 items available now (from all versions of DnD through 3.x) and more will be added each month. However, if you purchased D&D PDFs from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow before WOTC pulled them a few years ago, you will be able to download the newly updated D&D PDFs for free in the My Library section of the My Account page as they are re-released by WotC.
