Read this thread for more than you ever wanted to know about what rocks and minerals you can and can’t lick.

I've exploited reserved names by creating a Windows printer port named LPT2: so I could print from an old DOS program to a network printer.

Close! It’s at the Sea Lion caves further south. Almost to Florence.

Because of criticizing Sanderson’s dialog? 😅 I have read several of his books, but the endless puns annoy me. It pulls me out of the story. Plus, all of his characters have the same annoying sense of humor. I guess Tolkien and CS Lewis put my expectations unreasonably high....

That could just be habit from using digital vs film.

The magic and world feels like Robert Jordan. I think the dialog has some of the same problems as Sanderson’s (modern-style cheesy humor feels out of place in the setting). I am criminally under-Pratchetted, a problem that I should fix soon.

Great book for when you’re sitting in a hotel room while the wind and rain blast the Oregon coast outside.

Mini review: it was a page turner, kept attention throughout. Good, interesting characters. Dialog was just average. Setting was very interesting. Magic use was okay, not great. Some tropes; fairly standard mashup of fantasy. Plot was good and wrapped up nicely.

Finished a 400 page epic fantasy book in a day and a half. Still got it.

Like calling a pure function but not capturing the result. 😅

Do we have actual data on how many bits of information do our brains consume per day as opposed to a brain 50 years ago? Actual numbers on how much we're exposed to, how much we perceive and process, how much we retain. And any changes across decades.

So my wife got me back this morning. I asked her which hat I should wear (I rarely wear hats but need a haircut). She said “No preference, do whatever.”
