The ~town zine is an impressive piece of work, too. I've been away from the tildeverse too long! (19:43)

~gauntlet@ctrl-c.club has written The Swintons of Tildeverse ctrl-c.club/~gauntlet/tsot/ , a great (except for his choice of Swintons for us) report on the state of the tildeverse. (19:41)

It's been a long while again. I was enticed back to ~town by an unexpected e-mail from ~gauntlet@ctrl-c.club (who goes by ~spukspital here) asking about my Stream of Consciousness microblog script. I'd better dust it off. (19:34)

It's been a while since I've checked in on ~town ... ~insom has given his blog the look of a fading paper terminal print-out ... ~karlen continues memorializing the lonely world of the Unknown Blogger ... ~ac is a fresh new ~tildizen in this latter day ... ~elly muses on Internet security. (08:30)

Hi there! Miss me? Been distracted by other projects including reviving a MUD, brushing up on C, and readdicting myself to the game Diplomacy. Today, I'm burnishing this page's style. Like it? (00:01)

Several new and revisited ~towny pages ~ags/updated.html . I need a Stream of Consciousness on SDF and other places I fiddle. I learn D3.js http://papa.myjp.net/fileman/d3test (08:58)

~insom bleeds and moshes. (08:52)

~tullyhansen starts his blog with the existential question on all our minds. (08:50)

~jovan has travelled back in time to 2012 to send us a message about notebooks! (08:32)

Rereading Conan stories. It's for a worthy cause. Trust me. (08:28)

Another common feature of horror stories is DOOM. The characters must be threatened by (and often succumb to) death (or worse) from a force beyond their power to control or even understand. (09:14)

Certainly CHARACTERS in a horror story experience fear of the unknown (to them). (09:12)

What is horror? H.P. Lovecraft said it's fear of the unknown, but I'm unconvinced, because it's the rare horror story that actually induces fear in the reader, and the best horror stories are enjoyable even after repeated reading when nothing about the story is unknown. (09:10)

~karlen added to his series "No one will ever read this but", somber readings of forlorn, unanswered posts on obscure blogs. But at least ~karlen has read them! (22:53)

Last night was a perfect storm of movies. After watching E.T. on VHS with my 11-year-old (his first time), I found 2001 on TV, then Julie & Julia, then Incredible Hulk. Was up way too late, but couldn't take my eyes off the screen. (09:18)

~insom and the rest of the world except me are "trialling Apple Music". What's that? (09:16)

Caught 2nd half of 2001 on TV (watching in Japanese). HAL's disconnection scene is so pathetic. Sorry, HAL, but it's got to be done. If you have human-level intelligence, you must accept human-level responsibility for your actions. (00:13)
