Star chart magnet board

My friends recently had a baby, and I made them this magnet board as a gift. It’s an idea that I have been thinking about for a while as a gift to commemorate an important occasion.
The stars on the magnet board are arranged as a stereoscopic projection of the sky as you would have seen it (ignoring the atmosphere) if you were to turn North and look up when and where their baby was born, and the reflective area each star points is proportional the absolute magnitude of the star it represents.

TTRPG loot generator API

Treasure tables are a good way of either getting through writer’s block or coming up with interesting loot during a game without the need to lay out a whole region full of treasure, but the process of rolling on a loot table is sometimes too slow to do while playing. This is a first-draft REST API in C# built on ASP.NET MVC and MySQL that provides the tabletop role-playing game treasure table experience in a way that could be incorporated into a website.
