Bloomburrow

It's been 20 years since I last bought a Magic: The Gathering deck. Now I'm thinking, maybe I should get back into it for Bloomburrow.

Re: What are you doing RIGHT NOW?

I suppose I should update my location since I've been out of the country for over two years. Now in the Czech Republic. And it's hot.

Re: AI Art in Serialized Novels

What does a book illustration cost anyway? I assume it's more than a normal commission because you are also buying the copyright or w/e along with it, but by what degree of increase is that? From what I recall (which may be out of date) in South Africa, copyright automatically goes to the commissio...

Re: Ander Review, by Human & Rousseau

It sucks but, looking at the economics of publishing is just crazy. Most books go nowhere and publishers are completely reliant on old classics and a few really big authors (the ones whose names we all recognise).

How should we reconcile the law and morality when teaching children?

We probably that the law can be useful, providing protection from crimes like murder or rape. But we also recognise that the law can promote terrible things, such as in Apartheid South Africa. More generally we recognise that the dichotomy of legal/illegal does not directly map to right/wrong. This ...

Re: What are you doing RIGHT NOW?

Maximum temperatures are important but might not be representative. Better to use like an upper quartile or something rather than basing everything on a maximum.

I replaced my CPU's thermal paste because it is about five or six years old and runs so hot. When I opened everything up, I realised the CPU cooler was probably never properly attached (my fault). So... I think it spent a couple years with inadequate cooling. On the plus side, the average running te...

No and no. Mostly because I'm too lazy with cooking and partly because some ingredients are very difficult to find. I've only ever seen seitan in a restaurant.
