@JibrilTheFlugel This also means that Patrick Stewart voiced a character Todd Howard made up for a D&D session in the 90s

@JibrilTheFlugel I believe Uriel Septim VII, Jagar Tharn and Ria Silmayne are from the original campaign. They're all Arena characters, by Daggerfall they had hired Kirkbride and Kuhlman as writers, who were both very keen to distance the series from stock fantasy tropes.

That's why the Psijic Order exists (to squat on the idea of "D&D psychics" so that it could never be used), that's why dragons are organic time machines that eat ideas, and that's why the Daedric Princes were established. All of this is Daggerfall stuff, along with the vanished dwarves (who they were keen to establish as Dwemer, "deep elves") and Numidium, their concept murdering reality bending robot that Tiber Septim tricked Zurin Arctus into powering with his own soul.

The three I mentioned live on in various ways. Ria is dead by the time Arena begins and passes on after the game, but Uriel Septim VII featured all the way to his death in Oblivion, and his fascinating ancestor Tiber Septim shares his name.

Jagar Tharn is killed in Arena, but his ancestor Abnur Tharn plays a major role in Elder Scrolls Online.

Sooo... what's all this about Tusky and Tusky Uncensored? I have not been playing attention.

Instead of enshrining Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Microsoft as the Internet’s permanent overlords and then striving to make them as benign as possible, we can fix the Internet by making Big Tech less central to its future. eff.org/deeplinks/2019/07/inte

I haven't been on as much since I'm working full time, but it looks like there are a lot of new faces and instances on the federation timeline .. lots of new people who haven't blocked me yet for my radical centrist views. Hi everyone. I love you. Keep being awesome. Remember to take it easy. G'night!

Debian 10 installed onto the yoga tab 3 pro without a hitch (other than the broadcom driver thing). Rotation even works. Now if I can find a touchscreen driver I'll be in business!

Good job, Debian.

I spent a good part of yesterday migrating several databases to the latest version. They are now all using PostgreSQL 11.x

I started using Postgres with the 7.x series, and have used it almost exclusively as my DB of choice ever since. I've always found Postgres to be utterly reliable, and working with it is always a pleasure. Super documentation, too.

A big thank you to all the folk who make Postgres such a great DB.

Maybe remember to tag your uspol stuff with uspol so that people can mute it since like 95% of the world isn’t US and can’t do anything about your shitty fascist state

Wow, Americians, watch this. youtube.com/watch?v=jbzvWkbUVE And non-Americans, watch this and ensure that your country does everything possible *not* to emulate the USA. @anandwrites is spot on, as usual.

The new Assange charges are -- by far -- the Trump regime's most aggressive attack yet on the practice of journalism. If journalists of all stripes don't defend him, whatever they think of him personally, they are helping journalism's enemies. This is a defining moment.

Wow, so to demonstrate they're "innovating", banks have simply created an open standard for payment APIs... what do you know. Having a *royalty free* open standard is innovation now. NZ gov't, how about looking at openstandards.nz - why limit it to the banks - you could be innovating all over the place.
