I did it! The official PDF version of the GUTS+ Rule Book is now released and available to purchase for $4.99!

I also made a post about what makes it special since the rules are already available on the website for free:

I think it turned out great! If you end up buying it, please let me know what you think, too!

Just saw an advert for the new Tesco Clubcard Plus. Subscription based discounts on (selected) basic requirements for living...if you spend enough. Are people really this stupid? (Rhetorical question.)

A bit behind the times but I just watched Solo. Really fun, some nice side references and overall an enjoyable Star Wars romp.

Did you just lose 100m customer SSNs because your root password was "password", you set an S3 bucket to public or you didn't patch a well known vulnerability for 8 months? Worry not! Our free excuse generator will help you develop an air-tight breach statement in no time!

But we have since watched the movie #hackers 8 times back to back, so it will never happen again." #infosec

Gone to bed early as my last therapy session this morning was hard and the week is challenging enough as it is.

Fucking fireworks, of course.

Looking for a psychotherapist in Aachen, Germany 

Does anybody know a good psychotherapist in Aachen, Germany? Looking for a friend. Please boost.

Not sure why but Stockport railway station smells of seaweed. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™ƒ

On my way to my last therapy session. Nervous, but I think I'm doing okay. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Hey UK Tooters, how easy/hard is it to get an adult referral and ADHD diagnoses on the NHS? Asking for a Tess :P

My vulns are up, probably because I slept like shit and @Jo isn't well. I hate feeling like this, as I get pissed off at everything. Trying my best to say that's okay and connect with myself, at least where the focus of my ire is legitimate. Still... ๐Ÿ™

I'm going to game for a bit and then clean and cook. That might help.

PS: emotional self, I love you and I like that you're here now, but please stop suggesting things that I know are bad courses of action, thanks.

Watching "Mindfulness Explained" on Netflix. Interesting that it references Mingyur Ripoche and the brain imaging done on him, comparing the neuroelectric activity when he is mindful to an epileptic episode. Interesting, as an epileptic that has meditated since he was a kid.

I picked up Ghost Recon Breakpoint in Tesco yesterday as it was 30 quid off and I hope Ubi stand by their promise, this week, to address all the things they screwed up with it.

In the meantime, whilst the gunplay itself remains excellent, it's still a shit game. I'm going to stick it out some more but I'm not sure how long I can stand it.

I've had three weeks off this year. Every day of them I've been ill, either with flu or (pre-therapy) mental health issues.

I have three days off this week. Today I'm gaming all day and then off to D&D tonight. Tomorrow I'm taking youngest to York for the day. Thursday will be cinema with bestie and Samhain celebrations in the evening.

I WILL enjoy myself... ๐Ÿคฃ

Spent the morning working through Jira issues lists for a Java ReST API I didn't develop (especially as...I'm not a Java developer) and the afternoon porting old VS web sites full of WCF services to an application (which I did write).

At least I'm doing dev and not DBA or sysop work. Which, y'know, is in my job title. ๐Ÿ˜œ
