Ouch Again Edition
- T-Mobile got hacked (again) leaking personal data for 37 million customers (again). (Bleeping Computer)
Life Hack: Always lie when filling out official documents.
- Microsoft will end sales of Windows 10 on January 31. (Tom's Hardware)
Windows 11 isn't the worst thing ever and Windows 10 isn't the best, but still.
- Wizards of the Coast has backtracked, apologised, and offered a new new version of the Open Gaming License releasing the core game mechanics under a Creative Commons license. (Polygon)
Have they truly seen the light or are they still the same weasels they were yesterday.
If you said "weasels" you win a scary clown.
Wizards is not entirely unrelated to Windows, the management of the former apparently came out of Microsoft.

While I was still there, his agenda was clearly "monetize all of the things", and that has obviously not changed, with public comments from the latest President of WotC of "D&D is insufficiently monetized."
His other agenda at WotC was deleting the existing company culture, which was best exemplified by the statement "we are caretakers of Magic and D&D."
As far as I'm concerned, there's your "villain" of the piece. ["Maximizing Shareholder Revenue" is his job, but he's demonstrated a willingness to overemphasize short term gain over long term sustainability, IMAO.] I'd bet he will bail before the ship completely sinks, but he's destroyed the brands that were Hasbros best revenue generators. That won't end well for them.
Pixy-like not-a-disclaimer: it looks like Pathfinder 2e will be a perfect replacement for the new campaign. So it goes.
