Lazy Reading for 2012/02/19

Apparently this is a good week for Lazy Reading links, cause I have lots!   If you have any specific suggestions of where to find more links, I’d welcome them.  I’m sure there’s more people to follow that come up with tidbits like these…

Your unrelated link of the week: Cyriak.  An animator in the UK; I like the rhythmic repetition in his (occasionally disturbing) animations.

As I mentioned last week, DragonFly developer Venkatesh Srinivas is collecting pledges for his crazy-long bike ride, raising funds for cancer patient support.  Not to put too fine a point on it, but my mother died from cancer in a long, agonizing process some years ago.  The support system funded by these pledges would have helped us tremendously.  Please donate a few dollars to ease someone else’s burden.

    The name is Window Maker, not WindowMaker.

  2. It’s been that long since I had to type it. Fixed!

  3. I hate to say it, but: forget D&D. It demands far too much time.

    Look at the new Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG. It’s like the 1979-era blue book “basic D&D” set with a bit of polish and refinement. Meant for people who have one evening free once a month to hack monsters and steal treasure.

  4. Aargh, now I have to order the rulebook and read it. My nerdiest nerd hobby is reading RPG rulebooks – not even playing, which I haven’t done in years.

  5. Tabletop RPG BOF at BSDCan? ;-)

  6. That would be fun. Of course, I’d have to make it to BSDCan…
