Friendly WiFi -

"More and more businesses are offering Wi-Fi as a service to customers. Whether it is at a restaurant, shop, or a favorite hangout, free access to Wi-Fi has become an expectation "

Duh.

"Friendly WiFi – an Initiative introduced by government agencies and managed by the RDI Trade Organization – recognizes public places that offer secure and filtered Wi-Fi with the goal of making public Internet safe for young people around the world."

"The Friendly WiFi symbol is available to any venues providing public WiFi, who are committed to supporting the need for safeguarding online content. The Friendly WiFi symbol is displayed by each venue signed up to the Friendly WiFi accreditation and appears either on their landing page as you sign into their public WiFi, or is visible on signage within the venue. 

"Wherever this symbol is displayed on site or online, parents and young people can be assured that the venues displaying the symbol have the correct filters in place and their public WiFi service is safe to use."




WatchGuard sells firewalls and firewall-based services, such as Friendly WiFi compatiable stuff.

WatchGuard is actually really inexpensive for the small-medium business market.

They also have some decent "What the crap is WiFi, anyway?" videos on their site, as long as you're willing to put up with the "...and this is how WatchGuard can help..." sales material.

(I know about WatchGuard, because apparently we use them at the office, and the IT team loves them.)

Basic Fuckanomics

You're born with a ton of fucks to give. So you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give a fuck about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers opinions ..... you give away too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. then, as you get older you have maybe ten fucks per month.... so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to your family and career, but there aren't enough fucks left to give the newest shit. So someone at work has something they need my help with that's outside my job title? I'll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. 
Then you get even older, so you're down to one or two fucks a month.... and those fucks are damn precious. You give them to your family, your hobbies, your job... and that's kind of it. It's not your fault fucks expire too quickly. I would have liked to save my fucks when I was younger, but I can't. 
Then you hit fuck insolvency. you…

DnD 5e - the Ultimate Guide to Ritual Casting

The Ultimate - and I mean ULTIMATE - guide to ritual spellcasting in 5e. The author even used color-coding. This is awesome.
For example, it seems so obvious to me that a ritual casting would require the character to stand still, but apparently not. The character can walk and chant at the same time.
The color-coding is great, and makes it really clear the only spell list worth ritualizing is the wizard spell list. Well, that is unless or until we get a 5e version of "Relics & Rituals" which expanded the ranger and paladin lists so incredibly much that we actually had someone play a ranger with Scribe Scroll, just so she could use all those cool spells (and wow, did she).


Hero Forge - Awesome Custom Action Figures

OMG, I could totally waste hours - and hundreds of dollars - at Hero Forge creating custom tabletop minis.


This is 3D printing meets gamer wet dreams.

You can do durable plastic (especially if you want it really 4" action figure size), or high detail plastic (for painting just right), or steel or bronze.  (Seriously, your own custom bronze statue!)


And you can make your human/alien hybrid look just so.

And save it for later, when you get that next paycheck.  I could totally see myself building a collection at about one per month.

And then totally see what your character might look like as a buff cat girl.

OMG, yeah, I could spend a bloody fortune in no time.
