The RPG Blog Alliance

So last week, I added my blog (well the roleplaying related posts at least) and my lost heroes dev blog to “RPG Blog Alliance”. I saw a number of fellow bloggers/twitters joining up and thought I’d be in good company. But as of writing, it’s up to 131 members. That’s 131 blogs about roleplaying. 131 […]

Initial feelings on Diaspora and identi.ca

I was planning on writing a post on why Twitter rocks (I may still write that post), but then Twitter do this dick move: moving to ban 3rd party clients that replicate the twitter stream. The news has been covered all over the place in the last few days but the real ramifications are not […]

Forgetting about it and moving on!

You probably don’t know this about me, you probably don’t care, but I don’t like gangster movies. I’m not saying I think gangster movies are bad movies at all and I really shouldn’t have to say that either. It’s just my simple opinion, which is generally meaningless in the sea of opinionated blogs. Now if […]

Roleplaying Design versus Facebook versus Twitter versus Buzz, eh?

For some reason I was thinking about the differences between Facebook and Twitter but within the scope of designing a roleplaying game. Yea, odd connections I know. That’s how my brain works and why I’m pretty much a scatter brain about things. When designing or modifying a roleplaying system (for pen-and-paper here like DnD, not […]

Review part 1 of my Custom Dice

As part of winning these custom dice, I have to do a review of them. However I haven’t gamed in months, certainly not since I received the dice. So instead I’m doing a “part 1” of the review now, which is, in a sense, a bit weird as it’s my design on the dice! Part […]

thedeadone gaming dice?

I came across dicecreator via twitter. He makes these exceptional custom dice for gaming such as these amazing Fudge dice (image on the right). And during some testing of his equipment he decided to use my twitter icon as a test for some dice: Which, to use the American vernacular, is awesome! Anyway, he recently […]

The answer to my question: WordPress “Press It” feature

I asked, not too long ago, if anyone had suggestions on sharing stuff from google reader in a nice way into WordPress. No-one answered and I didn’t find any solutions myself. However, I did come across this plugin for WordPress: Quick Post. It didn’t install properly when I tried it, but I played with it […]

Okay, no more automated content here!

I never enjoy reading a blog post of someone’s tweets or what they shared on Google Reader. If I want to read your tweets, I’ll follow you on twitter. If I want to see your shared items, I’ll follow you on Google Reader right? So I’ve disabled the auto-generated post of tweets and shared items […]

Going on holidays tomorrow! :)

So I’m going on holidays tomorrow, for a goodly period of time (but not too long). Can’t wait to get out of here and stop worrying about the recession, work, weather and everything else for a little bit. I’m looking forward to it, not least because it’s time with my family but also because it’s […]

Learning to not drown in the sea of social networking

I’ve finally converted. I’ve seen the light. I’ve jumped into those “whats the point?” and “timewasting” websites that have heralded in a multitude of buzzwords, Internet jokes and memes… Yep. I’ve given in and followed my friends into Facebook and Twitter.  A bit late in the game as people seem to be already not bothering […]
