Never got around to posting my RIX prerelease deck and pool. First time doing an Izzet deck, so even though I lost a lot, I think I learned how to play it properly? Moreso than before?

FLAVOR FLASHBACK: "If there's anything a warrior hates, it's a longbow—especially Fblthp's Longbow, the symbol of his facial tissue."

Honestly I feel GT Sport has the most thorough, complete, and useful tutorial I've ever played through in a video game.

When you see "Ye Olde...", for example, that was never meant to be read with a Y sound; the Y is a placeholder for the extinct thorn, and should be read "th".

Another 3-0 FNM draft! Had to compete with someone else in the pod for Vampires, but managed to win hard by giving Adanto Vanguard the Mark of the Vampire.

I need a haircut but I actively hate getting my hair cut.

You want to get rid of murderhobos?

Give your PCs enduring connections to the community -- family, friends, professional acquaintances, organizations, and so on -- and then don't destroy them for cheap drama.


I'm super excited about the RIX prerelease this weekend. I missed XLN's prerelease and everyone apparently says that XLN plays a lot better in sealed than in draft.

I trained a neural network on a list of deleted Wikipedia titles. Not sure who is weirder this time, neural net or humans.

GNU Project guidelines recommend interactive applications have an about box that displays the GPLv3, but I found that a bit boring

I'm just your average guy in tech. Open source is super neat.

My broad interests are in technology, development, automation, and especially education. I went to grad school to study educational data mining, the process of using data from classroom artifacts to improve instruction and understand the psychology of learning. Now I'm a software developer at a startup.

I'm really interested in game design, especially as a proxy for thinking about education. Right now I'm particularly into Magic the Gathering.

My hosting is provided by Having a private Mastodon instance is really cool (especially when you use it as a website!), but takes some getting used to since it becomes harder to find new people and for new people to find you. If you are interested in engaging with other people, you'll need to put in the extra work. And, of course, you can always just find an instance at JoinMastodon.
