Good idea to be sure, and I debated doing that myself (but figured people would rather see the preview/abstract first).

If you download the PDF (rather than "reading in browser"), no account needed.

These days it's mostly two things: Stardew Valley and Killing Floor 2. I have a couple of other things on deck, but it's mostly stuff that isn't out yet. I'm unreasonably excited about the upcoming Animal Crossing for Switch, and the FF7 remake may well be enough to get my to buy a PS5 if the rumors about backwards compatibility prove to be true.

I go through periodic Dwarf Fortress benders myself, but still feel like I haven't really groked the game yet. You may get some questions from me, if you don't mind too much :)

I was just telling my wife that I've had many IM-based conversations with my own coworkers (but of course without the same consequences).

This sounds a lot like what happened after Sandy Hook -- lots of sound and fury, but little actual action. That said, the fears of a second Charlottesville are not unreasonable. Still, this is the first I'm hearing of any potential mass protests or whatever, despite living in Richmond.

I recently discovered a guy who does a mixture of chiptune and metal. I'm not usually much for the latter, but his stuff is pleasantly retro.

He also does really good covers of old game music:

I started with a textbook, Rodney Decker's Reading Koine Greek. I'd studied Classical Greek for a couple years in college, so thankfully a lot of it was a refresher (plus beginning to familiarize myself with differences in Koine vs. the older dialect I'd learned). After that, I'm just reading!

I have some experience with Koine, so I can help you out there if you decide to go that route.

For a blog site, have you seen write.as?

I will never not share samzdat. It's a shame he seems to have quit writing.
