Apparently many of you find this Memcached story is confusing.
As an overview, this mini arc is about a fabulous piece of software, which helps the internet (including great products like farmville) feel really fast.
That is why it matters.
We have one more comic in this arc, and it’s back to regularly schedule programming.
Missed the first session of 4th edition D&D today. I decided to roll a bard. Problem is rolling a character is so confusing. I did however found an awesome character generator here. The only issue is that there is no bard class, but they do have the other main hero types.
Bards are an interesting class, as most of their skills revolve around team buffs. I found myself putting all my attribute points into charisma and constitution, simply because all the skills rely heavily on the modifiers (ie, temp hit points, or more damage). My character now has 8 strength as a result, which results in a -1 to strength related actions. 18 in constitution and 18 in charisma (+4 modifies), half-elf for-the-win. Something doesn’t feel right about this. Could my character not hit the gym, take some creatine or steroids? I mean sure intelligence is a little harder to come by, but raw strength, there are pills for that.
