boost from birdsite, interactive fiction, inform
I just shared an alpha of a project to facilitate working with Inform 7 (an interactive fiction DSL) on the command-line.
It's a thing that'll be useful to something like 12 people, but I hope those 12 will find it _really useful_.
Hello, Mastodon! I'm starting a new job search!

I've been working on some Decentralized Social Networking Protocol stuff with a great team. We put out a whitepaper and are steaming along towards a spec, a proof-of-concept app, governance infrastructure, etc. I think we're at the point where public review starts to get more important. Take a look at the whitepaper (https://unfinished.com/wp-content/uploads/dsnp_whitepaper.pdf) and join the conversation at https://forums.projectliberty.io

Magic: The Gathering newbie help
There are some kids at school that A) are pretty good kids (objectively better than the kids my oldest hangs out with there by default) and B) play a lot of Magic: The Gathering.
My oldest *does* want to hang out with them more but he doesn't know how to play MTG nor does he have any cards.
He has a decent collection of Pokemon cards and plays that very well.
Where do I start?
perhaps Lucia's assessment is the answer to this question from an old "Murder, She Wrote" that I also find hilarious
