    I had a long chat with Lou Zocchi after that article about my collection appeared last year. Lou said that the d7 he used to sell is not, after all, fair; certainly not as fair as the d5.

    Fairness, though, is a scale. As an absolute state for dice, it only exists in theory. If we take as our standard of "fair" so-called shop dice, the plastic d7 is unfair but the d5 is.

    Of course, all this assumes a "fair" throw. In theory, an unfair die with an unfair throw results in a fair outcome if the two kinds of unfairness exactly counter each other. In theory anyway...

    Actually its not that bad

    As a software engineer ... I wrote a program that looks for files with dates later than the last update I made ... and collects them for upload

    With a fast broadband connection ... it really doesnt take that long

    Ah, that's good thinking. I'm a developer too. In the process of writing a D&D chat client for my group.

    I wish I had nearly as nice a dice collection as you though

    My sister is an artist, and wanted to make a sculpture of a dragon made out of gaming dice. She'd planned to get the dice by collecting extras from gamers. The project was abandoned when she realized that to a gamer, there is no such thing as extra dice.
