I'm leaning toward either no or not yet, but I'm standing by for more information, clarifications, or a convincing argument for why this is a good idea. There are some things I could do better, but most of my reasons for leaving wouldn't be fixed just by my taking over because the problems originate external to that group.
Baseball; joke Show more
~ Science fact ~
Did you know that the fictional game "Baseball" from Star Trek's Deep Space Nine has been adapted to be played in real life?
Of course, there are no real-life Vulcans to play (and lose) against, and the sport is nearly unbearable to watch or play
But some die-hard Trekkies went out there and made it happen anyway!
I say, it sounds like a fun bit of cosplay and silliness. Play ball!
https://video.typica.us/ is back up and running with local videos working correctly. Bad nginx modification during the upgrade to PeerTube 1.2. I was stuck in a meeting for too long before I was able to fix that but everything should be good now.
One of the great things about my eclectic professional experience is that lots of people talk to me. I can't share most of the stories I hear (I'll anonymize and/or wait until the company involved gets bought out/goes out of business or until the people involved are no longer in the business) but I do enjoy hearing them.
Sadly, nobody locally wants to talk shop. I might "steal their secrets." (I totally steal ideas from others but local competitors don't have secrets worth stealing)
The oldest video game in my collection is a 2 player Computer Space cabinet (glittery green color). One of the neat gameplay elements is that shots are implemented just as a distance in front of your ship that increases over time until it hits something or reaches a maximum distance. The play field also wraps at the screen edges so you can do things like fire off screen and then rotate your ship to curve your shot into the other player. It's unusual enough that most don't expect it.
