Guess who just made and posted her very first Twine game? This girl, that's who!

It's short, it's basic, but it's mine. And, hopefully, a bit of fun to read.

Check it out here:

For the folks who have followed me over from dot social, and new followers as well, I have a brand new Ko-fi set up if you like what I'm doing on Mastodon or on my website. You can buy me a "coffee" (even though I prefer tea) here:

If you want to read a bunch of free stories (and I'm working on a new one right now for the site), my website is here:

@Nezchan plus one vote from me. This can one of CanVelo routes similar to the EuroVelo network.

Wild proposal:

A dedicated cycling corridor from Ottawa to Montréal, connecting all the towns and smaller points of interest along the way.

Basically a Canadian RijnWaalpad, it would definitely get busy during the summers and bring local tourism to all those centres providing amenities along the way. And probably people coming from elsewhere just to drive it.

"Ray Blanchard follows pantyhose fetish posters on his public verified Twitter" is the least surprising shit I've ever learned. I've been on dating apps, I know what that means about his theory that trans lesbians are actually gross m*n he never wanted to fuck anyway

They call him "Silent Butt" Dudley.

You don't wanna know why.

I haven't been into comics for so long I wouldn't have the first clue where to look for a good series to read. Not that I have much of a budget for them though.

I'm kinda over superheroes, though.

It's no surprise that Blockchain and *everything based on it* is vulnerable to this sort of abuse though. Nobody involved cares about people getting abused, particularly vulnerable people.

The whole techno-libertarian ethos pretty much guarantees they don't. It's baked in. If people are getting harrassed, it's not *their* problem. They're not harassing anyone (except when they do). And besides, personal responsibility. No centralized authority. Other hackneyed phrase to make it your fault!

Good article about a bad subject, all the more because it confirms things I've believed for some time.

You have to design for anti-harassment from day one. Waiting until the project is in the hands of the public and then adding it is much, much too late and you will always be playing catch-up. If you bother trying at all, like those YouTube alternatives I mentioned.

One thing I applaud Mastodon for is actually thinking about it during the design stage.

I wonder if one problem with the Steam controller is that the haptic pad on the right is just too big. I love the thing otherwise, but whenever I've tried to use it, it just seems like the size is off. And I don't have small hands, either.

Just tried playing No Man's Sky using the Steam Controller.

It's bad, man. It's a bad experience.

Is there even one YouTube alternative that isn't full of conspiracy theories and missing any anti-harassment mechanisms in the name of Freeze Peach?

You know what? I'm done with this shitty English muffin recipe. I already ruined a whole batch using it, and in the current batch I just found *another* one that's partially raw (a few seem to have turned out, but aren't stellar or anything).

Does anyone have an actually good recipe? Doesn't need to be sourdough or anything.

They puff up fine, but then some of them show this line of squishy along the edge after they're cool. Most of them seem fine, but it's upsetting.

Ugh. Threw out three of those English muffins because they were partly raw.

No idea what I'm doing wrong, they've obviously browned.
