Inspired Unreality open game chat is held every Monday night at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you are new to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invitation for you here.

Tonight! Inspired Unreality! Open game chat at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our opening topic will be magic systems. ZDL mentioned the Native American influences in Gunnerkrigg and it got me to thinking about how a magic system based on Native American folklore would work. Spirituality, talking to animals, sweat lodges, drugs, transmutation. Magic systems are a fascinating part of RPGs and fantasy literature. Join us tonight for an interesting discussion.
As always bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you have never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.
Start programming in Deno, an alternative to Node.js
Here, I will help you quickly get started with Deno by explaining:
When you're scripting with Bash, sometimes you need to read data from or write data to a file. Sometimes a file may contain configuration options, and other times the file is the data your user is creating with your application. Every language handles this task a little differently, and this article demonstrates how to handle data files with Bash and other POSIX shells.
Linux powers the internet, confirms EU commissioner
In 20 years of EU digital policy in Brussels, I have seen growing awareness and recognition among policymakers in Europe of the importance of open source software (OSS). A recent keynote by EU internal market commissioner Thierry Breton at the annual EU Open Source Policy Summit in February provides another example—albeit with a sense of urgency and strategic opportunity that has been largely missing in the past.
Identify Linux performance bottlenecks using open source tools
Computers are integrated systems that only perform as fast as their slowest hardware component. If one component is less capable than the others—if it falls behind and can't keep up—it can hold your entire system back. That's a performance bottleneck. Removing a serious bottleneck can make your system fly.
Few Unix commands are as famous as sed, grep, and awk. They get grouped together often, possibly because they have strange names and powerful tools for parsing text. They also share some syntactical and logical similarities. And while they're all useful for parsing text, each has its specialties. This article examines the sed command, which is a stream editor.
There are a lot of well-known open source applications used in web design, but there are also many great tools that are not as popular. I thought I'd challenge myself to find some obscure options on the chance I might find something useful.
Open source offers a wealth of options, so it's no surprise that I found 10 new applications that I now consider indispensable to my work.
In March 2020, I joined the rest of the world in quarantine at home for two weeks. Then, two weeks turned into more. And more. It wasn't too hard on me at first. I had been working a remote job for a year already, and I'm sort of an introvert in some ways. Being at home was sort of "business as usual" for me, but I watched as it took its toll on others, including my wife.

Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’re featuring some blues guitar from Delta Legends.
On June 10, 2018, I took a drive down to John Shepherd’s studio to record with Delta Legends. John Shepherd and Jeremy Burnett are both from Wynne and I live outside of Brookland. We recorded several songs and three of them are featured on our CD, “Two Woman Blues”. At the session John played guitar, Jeremy was on harp, and I’m on the bass. We all sing.
John is a virtuoso electric blues guitarist who plays especially well on slow blues standards like “Red House” and “Last Night”. One of the songs we recorded that day is a John Shepherd original called “These Blues”. John wrote it, John sings it, and John’s on guitar. Here’s Delta Legends now playing “These Blues”.

As I mentioned a few days ago, "If On A Winter's Night, Four Travelers" is a stunningly beautiful, completely free indie game (but see the content warnings in the game's description). Here's a spoiler-free review -- I used Peek to capture a small scene from the game, just to showcase the attention to detail:
10 articles you should read right now by women in tech
"Women in tech" is a label we use to describe humans who identify as women who are working in or playing with "tech," which is a broad term itself these days as it's all around us, touching almost everyone's life in a myriad of ways.
It's hard to stay away from the gadgets we use on a daily basis. In the hustle and bustle of modern life, I want to make sure I don't miss out on the important notifications from friends and family that pop up on my phone screen. I'm also busy and do not want to get lost in distractions, and picking up a phone and replying to messages tends to be distracting.
