Risa has fantastic tortellini. Took some cooking classes too, learned to make Gagcht with pesto sauce.

Back from vacation on Risa for a week, I hope the bar is in good shape.

It was especially nice to look through these 1950s scifi stories after rewatching DS9 Far Beyond The Stars last night with @clinkingdog What an episode! ❤🚀🤖👽

TIL that Wolf 359 is an actual star. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that they make references to real astronomical bodies in Star Trek, but I’d never really thought about it before.

its a very interesting read, I didn't think of the Romulans' characterization in this way 🤔

The Romulans see themselves in humanity, but also their greatest fear come true. Their ethos is better explained by historic trauma than a desire to conquer. (self.DaystromInstitute) by /u/Ut_prosim

Ten Forward users:

Federation is going to be a bit slow as the Sidekiq queue is 300k+ tasks because I'm deleting inactive users on this instance.

I'm keeping an eye on the queue, I'll update when it is clear again.

@guinan the core Taoist doctrine of Wu Wei is all about being hands-off and allowing things to develop naturally on their own without interference: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_wei

the Prime Directive seems like the natural extension of this philosophy to the interplanetary scale

the novel Lathe of Heaven is maybe the best explanation/exploration of Wu Wei that I know: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lath

📢 Ten Forward Scheduled Maintenance Announcement 📢

Linode has scheduled maintenance for the host node that tenforward.social is on therefore there will be a short period of downtime while they perform that.

Date and time:
2019-10-22 3:00:00 AM UTC

Linode allocates a two hour window for the maintenance but the downtime is typically less than 30 minutes.

All relevant services on the server are configured to come back up after a reboot, I will be awake and monitoring as well.

Dungeon Masters!

I have a one-shot adventure I'm playtesting:

emsenn.itch.io/crown-of-idbol-

Danger is never far in the Gloaming, where marshes and mesas give home to bandits and beasts... Recently... [a] bandit calling himself "King Bark" has been mugging travellers. Now, farmers are reporting missing livestock...

This adventure is set in tragically funny fantasy world of Teraum, in the year 80pc, during the Reconstruction Era.
