So, today I've been trying to set up my raspi as a Terraria server for me and Azy, because why the hell not.

Run into two major obstacles: 1. I can't remember the passwords for the raspi. Do thing I know where I wrote them down, but I can't find THAT, either. Ffffff.

2. The router is being an ABSOLUTE BUTTFACE and REFUSING TO SAVE CHANGES. >E >E >E >E >E I don't know why, either! I'm doing what it says - hitting save, then resetting the router - but yeah, it Really Doesn't Want to do the thing. May have to SSH in and do it manually rather than using the browser interface. Which is annoying because gdi router you have ONE JOB. (But hey, guess who's super fucking glad they're learning about this shit anyway! Because if I hadn't been taking the networking class this semester I would be SO CONFUSED, as well as grumpy. ^^;;;)

Still, even if it's filled with roadblocks, it's at least forward movement, so that's good. :D

Today was very tiring.

Wasn't helped by the fact that it took me ages to get to sleep last night because it was so fucking COLD, but the fuck can you do, bodies are fucking annoying about that kinda thing. (I ended up with two blankets and my doona, and both of the blankets were doubled. A couple of days ago I didn't have any blankets at all because it was too warm for them. I just. ??????)

Anyway, classes went pretty well, I think? I did well on my assignment, probably, yaaaaay!

And then I lost my phone. Got it back - someone turned it into the library, thank FUCK - but omfg that was stress I really didn't need. Particularly since my train card is kept in its case, so I was immediately worried about HOW GET HOME??


Still, it worked out, thank you universe for not sucking today! <3 And now I go bed, yup.

Episode 1489: Snippet Good

Episode 1489: Snippet Good

While PCs are often meticulous in detecting for magical powers or amazing abilities in whatever gear or gadgets they find, sometimes you can get away with slipping something in unnoticed. If you make it something otherwise forgettable, it helps.

Imagine a magic potion flask. If the PCs detect magic, of course it gives off an aura of magical power, but then they expect that from the potion inside anyway. Nobody suspects the flask itself.

By the way, what do PCs do with the flasks when they drink a magical potion? Has anyone ever asked this question before? The players usually just cross/erase used potions off their equipment lists. Where do the flasks go? Are all dungeons littered with the empty potion flasks of previous adventuring groups, like discarded cans and bottles by the side of the road?

Anyway, make a point of having the PCs find all their empties when they make camp and take stock of their gear. What are they going to do with these empty flasks? If they're like most adventurers, they might try to sell them, or perhaps they'll fill them with holy water or something. Here's where you have the magic of the flask step in. Maybe it always returns to their pack, no matter how they try to get rid of it. Maybe it converts whatever it contains into the same potion that was originally found in it (once per week, say, so it's not overpowered). Maybe it does something else completely, like attract monsters, or prevent any fires from being lit within 30 feet.

Who would suspect a flask?

Assignment is DONE!

Holy crap why 3am whyyyy.

I have to be up in 5 hours otherwise I won't make class. (And I can't skip because first class is a lecture that isn't recorded AND it's a hard subject orz)

I am. I am getting changed and going to bed now. ;;

At least I'm pretty happy with how it turned out...

Guess who VASTLY UNDERESTIMATED the amount of time the assignment would take!!

Hint: it me.

I've got the three major pages done, though, just need to do the "about me" page bullshit. Which I'll... hopefully be able to do fairly easily??

Of course, I'm at uni tomorrow, so finding the *time* is going to suck. Going to bed now anyway because my brains are at the no-thinking-not-here stage, so yeah, bed. Will hopefully get a bunch done in the morning, since it's my later day, and then just... stuff. You know. Getting things done between classes hopefully maybe. Hopefully NOT having to do it tomorrow night, because wow that'd be a disaster.

Anyway, bed now.

Episode 1488: Hook, Tie-in, and Linker

Indeed, you can never have too many dangling plot hooks. Try to generate at least two for every one resolved!

So, I did work on my assignment today! I have the layout pmuch done - there's a couple of things I haven't styled yet, but that's because they're only going to come up the once, so I might as well wait until it's content o'clock for them. But the major layout is done, and it includes responsive design, so I'm pretty pleased with that. (Can get extra marks for it! :D) Also I've done all the art myself, which is, you know, not negligible effort. (Will have to do at least one more piece, but hey, progress!)

Tomorrow is writing up all the content, which is basically just going to be me talking shit, so that'll be fun. Do have to add in a form, but since I pretty much just have to make up a bunch of questions so I can use all the required types of form inputs - when it's not already defined for me in the task, for example there has to be a birthdate - it's not going to be too difficult. :3
