GMing first game in 10 years - any advice?

This Saturday I'll be GMing my first game in about a decade. I used to GM a lot, but have only just back into playing tabletop RPGs, let along running one.

To make things even tougher for me, it's a Cyberpunk 2020 game which I've converted into the White Wolf's Storyteller rules.

The upside is I like to tell stories, play with people's heads and have (albeit limited) acting skills.

So does anyone have any advice for someone returning to GMing after a long absence?

Help with newcomer to coding and Javascript
Creating a grid of dots

I've decided to start learning how to code, and have settled with taking my first steps with Javascript. The reason is that Javascript is used to write scripts for software I use at work, which can help speed up my workflow.

I've found that OpenTechSchool is starting free training courses in my area, so I'm trying out its intro to Javascript course: http://opentechschool.github.io/js-beginners-4h-workshop-1/page2.html

I have now started on a section about loops. You are required to write a Javascript program that'll draw a 20x20 grid of circle, using the following sandbox page: http://opentechschool.github.io/js-beginners-4h-workshop-1/sandbox/#drawing_loop.js

We're instructed to use two loops, two variables, and that loops can go inside loops.

Brigitte Lyons – the extrovert writer of this post – gets nearly everything wrong about introverts and social anxiety.

Introverts aren't at war with extroverts: we're just starting to speak up about the problems we face in Western societies that view extroversion as "normal" and introversion as "abnormal".

Introversion or extroversion has nothing to do with social anxiety: both personality types can be affected by shyness and social anxiety. But social anxiety may afflict more introverts than extroverts in the West, due to society placing pressure on us to be extroverted (see above).

As for introverts seeing extroverts as being a bunch of self-absorbed bullies: there are plenty of extroverts who aren't and introverts who are. Extroverts don't have a monopoly on being douches.

The real tech news
Over the year I've been getting real tired of the quality of so called tech news sites. Overly sensational (and often incorrect) articles, link bait crap, biased reviews...

As a result I've stopped visiting any tech news site completely and started using Google+ as my sole source for tech news. Note that not every tech news site or article is bad, it really depends on the authors. So  I started following the good tech writers, all of which are listed below and included in the shared circle.

These guys usually hit the nail on the head and write (or record :) unbiased and decent reviews. They also point you to interesting articles not written by them and they're to first to point out bad reporting.

Google+ allows for a more two-way street in tech news reporting as it makes it easier to discuss the articles with the actual authors in... more »

Bug in Google+ preferences: Pages automatically added to circles

Whenever I try to uncheck, or check, the option "Automatically add a Google+ page to my circles if I search for + followed by the page's name." in my Google+ preferences, I receive a "Preferences could not be saved. Please try again later." message pops up. (See screengrab.)

Is anyone else having this problem? This issue is specific to this option in my Google+ preferences.

#pages   #bug   #advertising  

I do not want pages I search for to be automatically added to my circles. I want it to remain my choice who and what I add. This smacks of Google force pages into users' circles, to make it appear they are more popular than they are to brands which advertise on Google.

Nestlés CEO Peter Brabeck-Lethmate, just said that water should be privatized and having it is not a right. Basically - if you can't pay, don't think you have a right to survive. Well, fair enough. Lets say that "being allowed to live" is  not a human right, but lets take cash out of the equation and where does he think he stands?

To anyone interested in teaching filmmaking to high school students, here is the curriculum a friend of mine asked for. Please offer critique and or refinement. Thanks! What follows is a copypasta from an email to a friend who requested my curriculum. Turns out, there might be other people who are interested:

I start of with some film history: persistence of vision and frame rate are psychology terms that make motion picture possible and the "industry" went through many iteration before finally getting to film. There's some youtube videos that we screen in class: (if you can't get to youtube in the 21st century, you need to raise hell about teaching a film class and needing access).

Can you spare a short film script for a high school English class?

In a few weeks, I'll be teaching a screenwriting workshop to a class of 13-16 year olds. 

I'm looking for short film scripts to use as teaching examples in the class.

I'd like to use scripts from a few different writers to show the pupils how different writers approach screenwriting, within the constraints of the format.

If you have a short film script you'd be willing to share, please let me know.

I ideally need scripts under 5 pages with a standard narrative structure. The content must be suitable for 13-16 year olds (no sex, swearing, extreme violence etc).

The scripts would not be distributed outside of the class. They'll be used to show the pupils how short film scripts work, before they move on to writing their own.

Speedreading like The Flash

Because I've got a massive number of books to read, I bought a "teach yourself" book on speedreading.

According to it most people read at 200 words-per-minute, and speedreading doubles or trebles that rate.

I did a reading speed test and it turns out I read at 400wpm.

I think this is what inside my head will sound like if I manage to treble my reading speed.

Amazon and Solid Gold Bomb selling "Keep Calm and Rape…" T-shirts

UPDATE: Solid Gold Bomb has removed the "Keep Calm and Rape…" T-shirts from its online store. However, the T-shirts are still being sold on Amazon.co.uk.

UPDATE 2: Solid Gold Bomb are placing the blame on a single coder on their staff. But they don't explain why the T-shirts were allowed to go on sale (link: http://www.solidgoldbomb.com/pages/contact-us). The T-shirts are also being pulled from the Amazon Marketplace store. Solid Gold Bomb were also selling T-shirts with slogans like ""keep calm and knife her" and "keep calm and grope a lot" (source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21640347).

Amazon is enabling the retailer Solid Gold Bomb to distribute a range of "Keep Calm and Rape…" T-shirts.

To this day

This is the best anti-bullying film I've seen. Moving and positive, it shows the emotional impact of being a bully.

The film is part of the "To This Day Project" (http://tothisdayproject.com/).

Possibly the best "screenwriter wanted" advert ever.

Why you should pay your invoices

If you run a company, you should always ensure you pay invoices from the Inland Revenue and your website developer. 

If you don't, the first can send you to prison, and the second can… well, see for yourself:

Earlier today I learnt that Valentine's Day is a Christian corruption of a pagan festival involving werewolves and sex. Suddenly, I like Valentine's Day as I can send this to people…

GMing first game in 10 years - any advice?

This Saturday I'll be GMing my first game in about a decade. I used to GM a lot, but have only just back into playing tabletop RPGs, let along running one.

To make things even tougher for me, it's a Cyberpunk 2020 game which I've converted into the White Wolf's Storyteller rules.

The upside is I like to tell stories, play with people's heads and have (albeit limited) acting skills.

So does anyone have any advice for someone returning to GMing after a long absence?

Binging on Stargate Universe

I've spent the day watching episodes of a series I've long meant to watch: Stargate Universe, and it's left me with a couple of thoughts:

1. Grim is not entertaining
SGU strongly reminds me of Ronald D Moore Battlestar Galactica remake.

Both feature a broken down ship in space, which is stranded by accident, and becomes populated by a motley crew of people. And its well-written, well-acted, high production values – generally very well made.

And both have episodes with nearly identical concepts: the ship loosing all of their water, struggling to find food enough to feed everyone, a developing split between the civilian and military crews, and a commander trying to prevent mutiny created through politicians' machinations.

And both shows have a lunatic genius scientist doctor.more »

Make a post with the PULP-O-MIZER

I found the PULP-O-MIZER (http://bit.ly/12dujBH) via a post from +Steve Turnbull. It lets you make covers based on the old science-fiction anthology magazines.

So, I made one to promote my freelance copy editing business (http://rceditorial.wordpress.com).

Nice, what?

Ex-BNP members form hardline racist, neo-Nazi "British Democratic Party"

Launch event security provided by EDL to defend against attack by BNP.

Senior posts in "democratic" party not elected.

BDP's leader – Andrew Brons – is an ex-Mosley follower, ex-National Front. 

Nick Lowles of the antifascist campaign group Hope not Hate says the new party will be a serious challenge to Nick Griffin’s BNP. “The BDP brings together all of the hardcore Holocaust deniers and racists that have walked away from the BNP over the last two to three years, plus those previously, who could not stomach the party’s image changes.

“They and the BNP already have a mutual hatred of each other and neither party will stop until they’ve killed the other one off. The gloves will be off and it will be toxic”.
