Freezing Your Credit

Following up on my post from two weeks ago, I went and did it: I obtained a copy of my credit report and placed a security freeze on my reports with the three major agencies. Here are my impressions of how it went. Free Credit Report I’ve never actually requested my own credit report before, […]

Shewstone Publishing

I’m aware that it’s been more than 2 years since I’ve posted to this blog. This long, quiet period coincided with the launch of 5th Edition D&D at Gen Con 2014. 2014 was my first Gen Con. Since then my engagement with roleplaying games has been reinvigorated and I’ve been putting my time into world-building, […]

Top 11 Technology Developments of the Decade

I don’t want this blog to be just about re-posting articles someone else wrote, but I thought this was interesting and that I’d share it.

A friend from work had software that had archived most of the posts automatically and he sent me a copy of the archive. And, another reader pointed out that I could retrieve anything else that may still […]

The End of History

For those of you who have been reading my blog, I’ve got some bad news. Due to an error on my part, all the past articles and comments have been lost. For all intents and purposes, The Runes of Binaria is starting over with a blank slate.

Good grief – I’ve turned into a blogger!

I hate blogs.  So why do I have one? Just recently (two days ago, in fact), I decided to take the plunge and get my own Web hosting service from a real hosting company (namely, 1and1).  Partly this is because I’m tired of hosting my pages at Comcast (more specifically, I’m tired of Comcast’s lousy […]
