I agree that it can can be anything you could consume: visual, audio, smell, touch, taste, etc. To argue only sighted people can experience AR is asinine.


#224

Does anybody know how to get calibre to format books so that there isn’t spaces every other line or the text is the size for ants?


#225

With epub, it’s literally a zip file of html that you can edit to make changes.


#226

I tried that but for some reason the changes don’t stick. I either end up with a strange spacing every two lines or minute text, despite changing the basic text size.


#227

Is there a general opinion in the trans community on whether trans women compete in men’s or women’s sports leagues? It’s a topic I see pop up from time to time but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a trans person weigh in.


#228

I have an example for you.

If you can play, you can play. No matter what someone’s gender is, they should always be eligible to play in one league or the other. If a person is somehow ineligible for both simultaneously, that’s a problem that needs to be fixed. Once it is determined which league someone is eligible for, they should make, or not make, a team based on the same meritocracy that applies to all athletes.

Do not ask me what criteria to use to decide which person goes in which league, because I could not be less qualified to answer that.

Your question reminds me of the very, very ugly reaction to a trans female MMA fighter named Fallon Fox. Fair warning, there is extreme transphobia in there. People said disgusting stuff.

Is Geeknights Con still going to happen? I’m listening to the old Civ VI episode because I’ve been playing it a bunch and Rym gives a estimate of it happening last month.


#231

I’m working on some pieces of it, but I haven’t kicked off the big work yet. I’ve been too busy.

It is going to happen. The first one may just be pretty small in scope.

The thing I was estimating happening was a fake “version 0” where we literally just had a meetup and played games with minimal structure or even the corp set up :wink:


#232

Open Question, would anyone be interested in going to a board game convention in Vancouver in early October? I mentioned this to a few of you in person and if you are interested can get advance tickets for it soon.

Yes /15characters

When making a pvp montage is it better to select the music or the clips first?


#235

Music. Otherwise, you’ll spend forever hunting for music to fit the clips you’ve picked. You can always change to something different if it doesn’t fit with what you have.


#236

What’s your live streaming setups?


#237

Mine is a work in Progress but I am going triple monitors (one 32" TV) A Logitech 930 pro web cam, a sun bulb and stand for lighting, and OBS. My microphone died when I did some testing so going to roll that into phase two of this which would be a capture card, mixer, mic, and learning how to make the scenes not suck.


#238

Call Victor on Hangouts and let him do all the actual work.


#239

Anybody in their travels transport booze in their check in luggage? I rarely travel so I don’t really know the deal to well. I looked into and I’m allowed to bring up to 5 liters of alcohol in my check in luggage.


#240

You totally can. See all that booze they sell at duty free?

Just make sure it is in there securely and in a way that it wont break and booze up your clothes.


#241

It has to be under 140 proof IIRC but I don’t know of any other restrictions.


#242

Gotta be check in though I bought some sake to take home from Japan and it got confiscated from my carry on on the way back. That came from reading that Japanese airlines allow outside liquids in carry on but it turned out it was domestic flights only.
