Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook Released

You'd love Exalted, then.

Exalted a) has that exact concept baked in, and b) has full-on Super-Saiyan level combat rules for diplomacy. Hell, for changing your party's minds about where to go for dinner, if you really want.

Geneticists Decry Book On Race and Evolution

SuiteSisterMary Re:why? (538 comments)

Ah, but perhaps culture drives evolution?

Society A is violent by culture. Therefore, the people who survive and propser, and pass on their genes, in Society A, are those who are better at giving and receiving violence; physical attributes, mental attributes, etc etc.

Society A eventually moves towards a less violent culture. But would the genetics not still be there, unless and until they were actively selected against?

Ars Editor Learns Feds Have His Old IP Addresses, Full Credit Card Numbers

SuiteSisterMary Re:if you've voted R or D... (217 comments)

You state that there is no 'center,' extreme, liberal, conservative, left, right, etc etc.

I find this odd, as 'left,' 'right,' 'liberal' and 'conservative' are political definitions. It's like saying there's no such thing as 'sweet' versus 'sour.'

The American system, of course, boils lib and con down to absurd extremes, and assumes an all-or-nothing take; pro choice? you're also pro gun control, etc etc.

Then you categorize some choices as 'evil.' Can you expound on that a bit?

Yes, straight-ticket voting is horrid. But again, in a multi-party system, things tend to balance out towards the center. In a first-past-the-post system, the two sides are encouraged to move to the extremes.

It's better principles, maybe, but it also guarantees that your vote is tossed away.

The system, as is, is designed to not allow third parties to win. Therefore, by voting third-party, you're implicitly not voting for a candidate that could actually win.

Like I said in another post, change the system. Somehow.

No, see, that's the problem. You, as a voter, are presented with a choice. Do you vote for the candidate you actually want, knowing full well that the American system, as currently implemented, is specifically geared against third-party candidates? Or do you game the system, and aim for the best realistic outcome?

Simple but effective SLA Monitoring Software?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 6 years ago

I'm looking for a simple piece of software to do some ICMP SLA monitoring; give it a list of devices, and it will ping, record availability, packet loss, delay variance/jitter, RTT, and so on. Values should be stored, not summarized.

Scheduled downtime should be definable, including after the fact; power outtages, for example, can't be recorded until they're over.

Reporting and SLA rules would be nice, but as long as the data can be gotten to one way or the other...

Which Wii game is this?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 6 years ago

A while back, quite a while as I recall, I saw a commercial online for a Wii game, and I cannot remember what the title was. I'm hoping somebody here can help me.

The commercial involved a woman playing Wii; I seem to recall she was in a tank top or sports bra or something similar, exercise style gear, with a pony tail.

The game itself seemed to involve a traditional Japanese woman doing some exploring. Specific things I remember are the character using a torch (mapped to the Wiimote movements), brushing aside cobwebs, possibly waving away a flock of bats, and slitting a throat from behind.

Policy routing over OSPF?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Is there such a thing as policy routing across a dynamic routed network, in this case OSPF? The more research I do, the more I'm thinking 'no.' Or, at least, 'No, you can policy route at your network's gateway.'

Say you have a mesh of routers, each router talks to one or more other routers. So, any given router is going to have multiple paths to router X, which is the gateway to another network. Great. So any router can probably talk to router X, and if a given link goes down, OSPF will find a way around it.

Now, lets say you have router Y, which is a gateway to a different network. Based on the IP address (each router is set up to listen to multiple subnets) you may want the packets to go out router X, you may want them to go out router Y.

As near as I can tell, the only way to do this would be to plug router Y into router X, and do policy routing on router X.

Or, possibly, use BGP.

Any hints or advice?

Any Champagne geeks out there? Found a bottle of Dom 1970.

Seem to have found a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne, 1970, while cleaning out an attic. This worth anything to anybody? I assume it's no longer drinkable, but the bottle and label are in good enough shape, and it's unopened.

I found one Ebay auction from a few years back for a 1970 Dom, seems to have gone for about $450 CDN. But there may very well be better places than Ebay to inquire about such things. Anybody know anything about such things?

Who wants vintage games?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 7 years ago

The time has come to face facts. I'm never going to play these games again. I won't even want to, until, of course, I get rid of them.

So, here's a huge whack of games, most of them first run, most of them with original manuals. Some of them should go easily (Planescape: Torment, Full Throttle, Interplay Ultimate RPG Archive, for Wasteland if nothing else) and some probably won't (Heretic 2, Dark Reign.)

These are all going on Ebay over the next few months, but I figured I'd see if anybody here wants dibs first. If you'd like further information, or dibs on a game, email me per my profile. Things will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.

These games are as is, but they should all work fine. Note that some are DOS; make sure you can actually run them somehow. DosBox is probably your friend here. Note that one is a C64 game and one is a Mac game (bought off Ebay for the adventurer's journals, actually.)

There are a few that I'm holding back, such as Wing Commander 3, 4 and 5, the Fallout series, the X-Com series, Quest for Glory series, the later Impressions Games citybuilders,the Forgotten Realms Archives (all the original Gold Box stuff, mainly. Pools of Radiance for the win!) but might just change my mind.

Oh, and if anybody wants a Sidewinder Force Feedback joystick (not USB) or a Saitek X-36 flight stick and throttle (again, not USB) let me know.

Anybody good with electrical wiring?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 7 years ago

So the wife and I want to install a cieling fan.

The fan we have has the following wires: blue (light), black (fan,) white and ground.

The light fixture we're replacing has black, white, ground.

The black and white are controlled by three-way switches, there being three switches that will turn the light on or off.

We also have a fan control switch, which has black in, black out, and ground.

The light part, no problem. Blue to black, white to white, ground to ground, and the switch controls the light.

The original idea for the switch was some 14/2 cable wired as: ceiling black to 14/2 white (recoded for hot) to the black in on the switch, and black out on the switch to 14/2 black to ceiling fan black.

We then realized that thanks to the three way wiring, this would, of course, kill power to the fan whenever the light was turned off.

So, my current thinking is to jump a constant hot black from the light switch beside the ceiling fan switch to the black in on the ceiling fan, and black out on the ceiling fan switch to 14/2 black, to ceiling fan black. The 14/2 white would be capped with a marette and electrical tape on both ends.

My understanding, therefore, is that all of the three-way switches would properly control the light, that constant power would go to the fan switch, which then steps the current from off (0) to full (4) through to the ceiling fan, and out the common white.

Am I right thinking on this?

American Elections for Non Americans?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Speaking as a Canadian, I'm curious. According to the polls, Americans are pretty much evenly split between Kerry and Bush.

As a Canadian, with easy access to American television, let alone Internet access to all sorts of goodies, I've formed my own opinions about the Presidential race.

My questions for other non-Americans are: Bush or Kerry? Why?

Edit: Oh,and I also find it interesting that when asked about importing American drugs from Canada, Bush tried to compare them to third world products, in the second debate, but when asked last night about flu vaccine, he said they were getting some from Canada.

BTW, my prediction for the winner is Kerry; he's taller, and has better hair, than Bush. This fufills both of Scott Adam's requirements for winning the presidency.

Microscopes for hobby use?

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  more than 9 years ago

The wife and I have decided to get a microscope for our daughter, for her birthday. I can't seem, however, to find a decent resource telling me what to look for in a microscope.

From what I've found, the high end for home hobby use seems to be 900x magnification; I'll be damned, however, if Google can tell me what that means in objective terms. Of course, having said that, somebody will post the magic Google words to find just that.

When you get right down to it, though, what I want to know is: with 900x magnification, can you see neat things like blood cells?

Anybody have any suggestions?

Time to sell off the ole' RPG collection.

SuiteSisterMary SuiteSisterMary writes  |  about 10 years ago

The time has come to start selling off the massive old RPG collection. Lots of this stuff isn't going to be used by me any time soon, and, well, I've moved on to obsessively collecting, well, different things.

This is all going to wind up on Ebay eventually, but I'll give anybody here who wants it first crack. See anything you like, any questions, post or email me.

Bear in mind that I'm in Canada, so you'll only be paying actual shipping costs, they might be hefty. Some of these books be heavy. Standard disclaimers about border/customs hangups also apply.

Conditions of the books ranges from 'read once and stuck on a shelf' to 'heavily used; the pages are all there, and in order, but the book looks used.'

It's a terribly formatted list, but it gets the point across. I've included the book numbers where available.
