#6898: Clear skies

Woke up to clear skies. How nice. Still October--and this time next week it'll be November.

Pixy Misa's post contains some neat things: a one-page dungeon generator, and a one-page city generator. Useful things for the role-playing enthusiast.

The dungeons are devoid of statistics (because there is more than one tabletop RPG system) but do provide a neat way to jump-start an evening of exploration and hacking. Been a long time since I needed a tool like this--and, really, I probably won't need one again--but I'm also glad to see that the hobby is still going strong.

Augmentin is--always has been--horse pills, big honkin' oblong tablets. In the bottle with them is a white cylinder, about the size of one of the tablets. One end is labeled "molecular sieve DO NOT EAT" with just that capitalization, and whenever I would try to get a pill I'd get that first. Every time.

But it really ought to be glued to the cap or at least made out of colored plastic, because a couple of times I thought I'd gotten a pill insted of this thing. Fortunately, I always check stuff before putting it into my mouth.

Today I must get over to a pharmacy to get my pills refilled, and it has to be before 4 PM. But 4 PM is 7 hours from now. Which is good, because I want to go back to bed for a while longer.

    Had to go to far off-site (soon to be main site) today, so I was able to see my new office. They've already got a nameplate outside it! How long has…

  • #7870: Heavy rain

    Probably the last thunderstorm of the year, hard rain. Weather site says "2 to 3 inches of rain"--for the day, I think--and I'm not inclined to doubt…
