Once you play it long enough you realize that is a spreadsheet and logistics sim with a bit of shooting aliens thrown in.

Tonight in the D&D game I’m running, my players spent a full hour and a half debating if they would allow the postal service to open a location in their settlement

It was incredible.

Look I'm not saying the internet of things is a good idea, but I *am* saying that I can kick on the air conditioning from my watch while laying in a medically disconcerting position on the couch.

I am

so very tired

of getting spam texts

from political campaigns

And that’s that. I’m officially Funemployed for a few months 😁

Tomorrow is my last day at my current job, and I’m not starting my new job until august. I feel like a school kid getting hype for summer vacation.

I need a job. Any computer touchers at a tech company hiring for a remote copywriter position? I can maybe be your girl!

when you download an image from the web these days, instead of a PNG or a JPEG, you get one of these new formats which is 8% more efficient, not compatible with any "pre-covid software" and has a name which sounds like

It's time! #Pebble 1.0 is officially out!

It's a strange little text-only modular music engine, and I'm very excited to share it with you all!

The current best content on the internet is “Roll for Sandwich” which is a TikTok “show” that this D&D player does where he rolls for every ingredient in a sandwich for lunch with roll tables and everything. He makes and reviews them all. Viewers send in dice and even condiments from their locality.

It’s honest and dorky and so loveable but unfortunately the creator has downloads disabled so I can’t directly share a clip.

I bring the news. And I do not lie when I say it’s the best.

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!


Laws only matter if there exists at least one person willing to commit violence against you to enforce them. 🕊

Said another way: are we really only doing this shit because a bunch of people would prefer to plug their ears and close their eyes and hide behind this crusty old document?

Legit question about history and governance (specifically in the US, but possibly more generally):

For what reason do we not completely revise the constitution? It is not holy scripture and was written hundreds of years ago by people whose views on society are now largely unaccepted (e.g. womens rights).

We can amend the constitution sure, but is there any actual historical precedent for the benefits of maintaining a multiple-hundred-year-old constitution versus rewriting it periodically?

Evolution has us out here being smart enough to fuck up our way of life such that we no longer adhere to the lifestyle that evolution worked to get us to be good at.
