Pinned toot

A quick introduction:

I am or have been a: writer, publisher, renter of virtual apartments for real money, injector of radioactive materials (for the forces of good, usually), sociologist, teacher, BBS sysop, SJW, polyam, and dedicated to punching up. I also have screwed up a lot, and try to learn from that crap.

@StevenSaus, but I'm planning on mostly using this one.

Google spreadsheet: a very weird chat service with a funny 2d channel selector, and another extra meta channel per channel no one reads. It has very bad notifications (something happened somewhere), the tiniest input windows you can imagine, and, and, aaand, not only do you have to add your name yourself, you can also edit other people's messages to your delight.

And I haven't even scratched the surface! This, folks, is what happens if you can't stop adding features to your software.

Would anyone be interested in helping beta-read my novel?

It's a queer-friendly sci-fi book, set on solarpunk future world. A young scientist invents cool stuff, makes friends, has adventures, and overcomes trauma to help his planet deal with a political crisis.

I'd love to go through it 3-4 chapters at a time every few weeks, and get early feedback from #SFF / #queer readers.

If you're interested DM me. Boosting this is welcome. Thx!

Look I am on my journey towards death just like everyone else mine just doesn’t involve me asking for hover cars every 15 minutes

Fun fact: "degenerate" is just code for "you have much more, and more satisfying, sex than me, and that makes me angry" 🤷‍♀️

Setting up piwigo to host all my CC licensed Flickr pics before Flickr nukes them. Happy to see the Flickr importer plug in. Softaculous install was super easy.

@vicorva I can't remember where I read it, but someone once said that cats are very similar to self-assured humans and don't take your shit and that's why people say "cats are evil" because they won't let you stomp all over them.
