Great Site Ranking in Google The Secrets Out

Google have recently filed a US patent which reveals a great deal of
how they rank your web site. Some of it you could never of guessed at…

If it’s only one then that’s a point against you in Googles eyes.

realms stuff non realmsies ignore…

IMNSHO it was a good thing that this rough draft didnt quite make the send list to the two contacts and the OOC list…

In your event announcement you added the following;
>3) Magic items will be checked in at the door. Items that break
>with medieval fantasy or utilize real world iconography like
>crucifixes will not be accepted.

The crucifix is heavily rooted in medieval and medieval fantasy sub culture.

Last time I checked the only reasons I could get a tick were listed in the omnibus. And last time i checked bad management and lack of structure by the person throwing an event wasn’t one of em.


For some reason, some people still don’t seem to know where “Shuffle board of DOOOOOOOM!™” comes from…. If you still don’t get it after this post well tough you will have to wait til next year to figure it out.

Gen Con

And for some incomprehensible reason they sold out!

True Dungeon

3024 tickets sold… ugh! And since they were nice enough to put images of all the common, rare and ultra rare treasure tokens online, how long do you think before they start getting counterfeited? Someone register me “” or “” or even better “” so I can make a hate site. 🙂

an amusing quote

Chapter 1 first paragraph:

“We are about to study the idea of a computational process. Computational processes are abstract beings that inhabit computers. As they evolve, processes manipulate other abstract things called data. The evolution of a process is directed by a pattern of rules called a program. People create programs to direct processes. In effect, we conjure the spirits of the computer with our spells.”
