Throwback to the last time I had a remotely good costume...

Pro tabletop gaming tip: in a pinch, a cereal box makes a good DM screen. (Jesuit dice box custom made by Wyrmwood before I entered. 💞)

Was rooting through an old email account and came across this signal diagram I made when I was in charge of our annual showcase in grad school 1.0. So many redundancies! Four computers to run a single experience! I got chills and shudders just seeing this.
