Moral alignment test

Image
On the Breadbox server, they were taking a moral alignment test based on the alignments in D&D. Moral Alignment Test I often like taking such tests. I got the following result. I feel like this is a good result for me. It matches well for how I see myself. I particularly like the description given.

Added new email widget

Image
I had to add a new email widget to my blog. Apparently Google discontinued Feedburner. I had gotten an email from someone at follow.it about this. I must have missed getting something from Google about it. Anyway, I figured out how to configure a widget with follow.it and set it up on my blog. I imported the email subscribers from Feedburner. Maybe they haven't been receiving emails for a while now. Hopefully they will get emails now. I added my email address so that I can see them as well.

Free will

Image
Yesterday I was listening to an interesting podcast from  Sam Harris  on free will titled  Final Thoughts on Free Will . I think he's written a book on free will and has discussed it in other podcasts, so I might see about finding those. Anyway, Sam was saying that it's not a matter of deciding between whether things are deterministic or whether we have free will. His position is that the concept of free will itself is actually flawed. He says that thoughts really just pop into our head. Either the thoughts are based on our state of being at that time or they are random. If we the former, then the system is deterministic. If we think the latter, then really randomness has nothing to do with choosing like we normally think of with free will. So if we really think about it, free will makes no sense. We never really view things from an outside perspective where we actively choose what we think or what we want. I can somewhat agree with his point, though Sam didn't really addre

Forum of Lies Devotee

Image
Yesterday I earned the Devotee badge on FoL . That's for 365 consecutive days visiting. I had seen that badge a while back and wondered if I'd skipped even a single day since I'd joined. I thought perhaps I didn't have a chance during a particularly busy day. But I guess I managed to visit every single day. 😀

Board Game Arena is quite addicting 😀 Currently playing 28 turned-based games Particularly like Lost Ruins of Arnak Certain games like Sushi Go! easy to play turn-based Other games like Colt Express require thinking through what was played, so more difficult to pick up quickly when my turn comes around Player named Haruka reminds me of Vulgard 🙂 Project SV coming along Weekend going to be busy with family Friend was venting about family Reminds me of my own frustrations with family Why must family bring about some of the worst complications in life?

Asked to replace into FM game Late last night right before bedtime I hadn't signed up as backup so must be having difficulty finding one Almost agreed, but then realized I should sleep before deciding Later realized I probably don't have time for that particular game since somewhat complicated Looked like replacement found Considering hosting Betrayal at House on the Hill misc on FoL Going to take some work to write up rules and prepare materials Probably wouldn't start for at least a week since need to wait for another misc to finish Still working on Senate Colosseum game Going to be deck based Need to organize all weapon stats to determine best way to handle them Trying not to overcomplicate first iteration Playing games on Board Game Arena Martian Dice is quick game that's kind of fun Joined a few turn-based games with 1 turn per day
