Table Top Simulator is half off on Steam! $10! Let me know if you get it and we can playtest my new games. Here's one.

Ok #Linux folk. I have a #bash script that needs to know if it was run with sudo and exit if it wasn't. Google returns loads of ways to do this and loads more people arguing over which way is the 'right' way.
Please help me to fry my brain by telling me how you'd do it and why.
If it makes a difference #Ubuntu 16.04.
Thanks.

"HERE IS A FINAL CHANGELOG FOR PATCH 5776.11:

1. HUMANS NO LONGER DEPLETE WILLPOWER WHEN ENGAGING IN DIFFICULT TASKS; GLUCOSE NO LONGER NECESSARY TO REPLENISH IT.

2. ROCKETS CAN NOW LAND ON PLATFORMS AND BE REUSED IF NEEDED.

3. USER FFUKUYAMA COMPLAINS THAT THE POLITICAL SYSTEM HAS BECOME BORING. IN ORDER TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING, FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES WILL OCCASIONALLY FLIRT WITH FAR-RIGHT NATIONALISM.

4. UK NO LONGER CONSIDERED PART OF EUROPE FOR PURPOSE OF ECONOMIC BONUSES."

PENGUICON 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELED

Penguicon Family,

We bring bittersweet news today. As you know, we have diligently kept our eyes on the situation surrounding COVID-19 in order to determine what we should do about Penguicon this year.

It is with sadness, but also hope, that I am able to announce that the Westin has offered to move our contract to April 2021. This means that Penguicon 2020 has officially been cancelled.
