I’ve found a few good programs for D20 gaming. The best is probably good old Skype, but others are worth checking out.

Bookmarks Housecleaning: Fun Stuff
You want to play. You want to laugh. Perhaps the Homestar Runner site is the best place to go. Check the email. Good. Now, read on for more fun links….
Bookmarks Housecleaning: FLAC
Rip Those CDs. Your old CD media is expensive and vulnerable. Have backups. I like FLAC so far, because it’s lossless (makes a PERFECT archive) and it can rip the full disc using Exact Audio Copy. Read on for some good tools.
Bookmarks Housecleaning: Bargains
The best bargain is always to avoid the store. I was looking at this great deal on a gamecube today, and I saved myself almost two hundred dollars! I didn’t go back and get it. But we’ll see tomorrow. I don’t always have the greatest willpower. Anyhow, read on for some bargain links.
WordPress 1.21 CSS Bug
As explained in someone else’s blog, there is a bug in WP1.21 that allows the site URL to be corrupted in the database, and then the formatting on your site goes poof. The fix is simple.
The Only Crime is Getting Caught
In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.
Even the Cato Institute and Business week get it. In an article titled ‘It’s Too Easy To Get Hard Time‘, Ciro Scotti reports that “With more than 4,000 federal crimes alone now on the books, you’d have to be Mother Theresa not to be in jeopardy at some point.”Do we really want to live in a country where a person’s action and motive aren’t the primary reasons for incarceration–it’s whether a prosecutor or politician points a finger in your direction? Isn’t it a sad thing when “it’s against the law” no longer provides a useful guide to proper behavior? Must we have to teach our young people two sets of rules: what you really do, and what you tell the cops?
Bookmarks Housecleaning: Misc
I’ve got this huge bookmarks file that I don’t even dig into anymore….bookmarks are lame. No search. Bad mnemonics. So I’m going to release them here. Maybe you’ll find something cool. Perhaps I’ll find something cool. Either way, my little hoard will stop being in the dead end morrass of bookmarks.html.
The Open CD Version 2
Open Source Software is a great stocking stuffer. I made a set for my clients, but I shoulda looked for The Open CD.
I didn’t know how well the ResEdit tradition has been followed. MacDevCenter over at O’reilly has an article on Modifying Stickies that shows just how much power one can have in the Macintosh environment. Plus, I want to mod my Stickies app!
Mac Software to look into.
I still haven’t gotten the hiss out of my EBN-OZN track. But there’s some software I’d love to try out to do the job. SoundSoap promises to get the hiss out.Also, in my ever-restarting quest to find good enterprise applications for my little enterprise, Time Navigator has an interesting name for some backup software. Worth a second look. Later.
