10: [Theatre] The What Goblins Saga, Chapter 1: What Are Goblins?

Everyone claims "our goblins are different" but The What Goblins seem different to the point of existential crisis. They're about to find more answers than expected... and more questions...

Yes, yes I did

identify -format "%f %N\n" *.gif | uniq -c | awk '$1>1' # Show which .gif files in the current directory are animated GIFs. The 'identify' command is part of ImageMagick

@mlemweb Hey, is the AP conf schedule up?

I thought there was information up before, but now I can only get to cfp and registration pages

Looking forward to the conference!
