Tabletop Gaming News - 11 September 2017 - 3:00pm
In any society, there’s going to be those who don’t want to follow society’s rules and would rather just forge their own path.

New Drupal Modules - 11 September 2017 - 2:09pm

A simple podcast RSS creator.

This module requires a custom content type that can fulfill the field requirements (minimally things like "title", "description", and "enclosure file"). It works for my needs, but it probably has other unforeseen limitations!

It's been tested with MP3 files in a working podcast https://www.absolutepacker.com/

There is a README.md with some more details.

Migrated: Now on Drupal 8! mglaman Mon, 09/11/2017 - 15:06

My personal site is now officially migrated onto Drupal 8! I had first attempted a migration of my site back when Drupal 8.0 was released but had a few issues. With Drupal 8.3 it was nearly flawless (maybe even 8.2, but I had put the idea back burner.) I did have some interesting issues to workaround

Missing filter plugins

My migration process was halted and littered with errors due to missing plugins, specifically around my text formats. The culprits were:

Fans of anime know about the “Notice me, Senpai!” thing. It’s where a character is really hoping that their teacher or boss or somesuch notices them and goes out of their way to hopefully catch their eye. I mean, it’s basically like we do in real life, hoping that a person we have a crush […]

Churrascaria Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 September 2017 - 10:30am
It should come as no surprise to anyone that I’m a fan of food. So, of course, if I’ve got good food in front of me, I’m going to defend it from all poachers. And… maybe I might keep an eye out to see if someone’s not defending their yummy treats as much as they […]

Bowties Drinking Game Up On Kickstarter

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 September 2017 - 8:30am
Some drinking games out there are just meant to get you as drunk as possible as fast as possible (beyond just chugging pure grain alcohol, I suppose). Bowties is a bit more casual about it. A little more upscale. Players have a card that they “wear” like a bowtie with a rule on it. They […]
