Blizzard Is Setting up a Home Run With Diablo IV
I’ve streamed about 9 hours of Diablo IV yesterday, taking my sorcerer from Level 12 to 21 in the Open Beta. From what I’ve seen so far, it’s shaping up to be a really solid game!
Last month, I recorded a podcast episode on some research by Dr Anthony Fauci reporting on SARS-CoV-2 vaccines in a highly respected medical journal:
→ The Private Citizen 146: Vaccines Were Never Going to Stop the Pandemic
Dr Anthony Fauci, for a long time the man in charge of the US response to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, has now admitted that vaccines have failed to stop the spread of the disease and were never likely to.
Interestingly, LinkedIn was of the opinion that this was misinformation. I understand how this judgement came to pass, but it is obviously total nonsense. So I released another episode, reporting on it:
→ The Private Citizen 147: LinkedIn Says Fauci is Spreading Misinformation
Horribly broken content moderation practices at LinkedIn make the Microsoft-owned social network actively hostile to scientific progress and press freedom, it seems.
I actually pre-recorded the next episode of the podcast a while ago, but haven’t had any time to release it until now. It should be out later today. Please excuse the delays on this!
I’ve been working on a more detailed map for my D&D campaign setting. It is far from finished, but here’s a work in progress:
A few days ago, I recommended the Traveler’s Notebook to my friend Halefa, who was looking for a notebook to use as a D&D campaign journal. She has now bought one and wrote a very in-depth blog post on her setup and plans for the notebook, which is well worth a read:

I’ve published my second in-depth Star Trek TOS review today, on the episode “Charlie X”:
→ Girls in Space Be Wary, Mission Critical Ops
A Dark Tide is Coming
Around 18:00 CET today, I will try to put a kerbal into the orbit of Kerbin. I will be streaming the mission live on Twitch again. Please be patient if the streams starts late, I am going to try and work out some of the performance issues I’ve been having with the game before I go live.
I’ve put the whole recording of my first Kerbal Space Program 2 stream on Youtube.
After heavy initial problems getting this game to not kill the performance of my computer and being able to stream it, and hours of problems in game getting into orbit and actually decoupling the satellite, I finally achieved success at the end of the stream. It made me so proud!
