    COVID-19 community check-in and discussion

    Same here. We're still opting not to return to in-person church services just yet. We've chosen not to eat inside a restaurant for now. We're wearing face masks when we go out in public. My wife's parents are in their 60s and her grandmother is in her 90s, so we're being more cautious than...

    It may be time to get off Discord

    Race relations are now, as ever, a complex and sensitive topic in the US and elsewhere. A cursory reading of articles on the shooting of Trayvon Martin agree that insufficient evidence was provided to prove allegations of second degree murder ("any intentional murder with malice aforethought...

    It may be time to get off Discord

    In 21 years of leading Christian online communities, I've read my fair share of baseless accusations against Christianity and Christian doctrine from people who had not studied Scripture themselves, but I can't say I remember anyone accusing the Bible of being a racist text. Considering that...

    Ominous Captcha

    Maybe it was saying goodbye to The Beast? As in, God already has victory over Satan. Hmmm...

    Chill games

    /bump I've been feeling the need for a chill game again lately, so I thought I'd bump this thread and see what you all are playing these days to relax.

    [Weekly - F/Sa] Week In Review

    Still Alive! We've been settling in to A New Normal(TM) during a pandemic, but very little feels normal or anything remotely resembling normal. Nevertheless, life moves on and @Ember returned to a full-time schedule this week, the kids returned to in-person extracurriculars (with significant...

    [Weekly - Su/M] What did you learn/teach at church?

    This last week, our pastor started a new series on the scattered early church. The main text for last week's sermon was 1 Peter chapters 1 and 2. Based on the text, the pastor gave 3 helpful instructions to keep us on course when we are physically distant from fellow believers: Remember whose...

    COVID-19 community check-in and discussion

    Still healthy. Still symptom-free. Still wearing a mask at work and decontaminating every day after work. @Ember and I are striving to be cautious but also set a course that's sustainable for the long term. Some days are better than others. :)

    [Weekly - W] Now Playing

    Still Puzzle & Dragons and Wordscapes on mobile. 100%'d Steamworld Dig 2 earlier this month. The game was a wonderful mix of Mr. Driller and Metroidvania until the optional trials which comprise the very last unlockable content in the game. SD2 handles exploration extremely well and combat...

    Still Playing Wii?

    Yep! I haven't played a game off disc in years. RiiConnect24 must be new since I last looked at Wii homebrew, though this sort of things falls squarely in the "extremely interesting to Tek because it breathes new life in to old technology" box rather than the "this is something I actually see...

    Still Playing Wii?

    Mine is still connected to my TV. My Wii's optical drive sounded like it was getting ready to fail a few years ago, so I dumped my games to an external device (I softmodded my Wii using the original Twilight Princess hack way back when) and still play from time to time. I've been spending more...

    Any interest in VR?

    I never got as far as raids in WoW, but I still remember Molten Core being a huge deal back in the day. I can't even imagine the logistical demands of coordinating 40-player raids. I'd be interested in seeing more old videos!
