replay all podcast cover which is a space rave cube mountain
Speaking of podcasts, PJ Vogt just dived into 30-50 feral hogs and it was pretty great. I would subscribe to his feral hogs newsletter. Also, can we talk about the reply-all cover which is a space rave cube in a gradient mountain for some reason? I blame Spotify.

The Our Fake History podcast tells the true stories behind untrue things we believe about history. I really enjoyed this episode about the absurdist secret society The Clampers and a hoax they accidentally (?) perpetrated involving an artifact Sir Francis Drake left in California in 1579.

Random D&D Links

After taking the summer off, my D&D group is gearing up to play again so I've been gathering links. Here are some that I've found useful recently:
Ars Technica Ars Technica

Henbane will be the name of my next metal band.

DARN, prior art.
Medium Medium
I am guilty of using this word as filler or an intensifier all the time. This is a public note to myself to cut it out.

"Am I allowed to strike? If you work in the private sector, definitely. It doesn’t matter if you are part of a labor union or not. For government workers, though, it depends."
This explainer from Vox sure is timely for me. The union I’m in is about to strike.

I recently wanted to set up some "internet free" time for certain devices on my wifi (sorry kids) and this python library did the trick. I used it to set up a script that blocks or unblocks devices by mac address and I run it on a regular schedule with cron. Netgear should offer a consistent, well-documented API for its routers. Until then, pyNetgear can help automate a few tasks. Which is nice.
