@phildini I already do! I just don't know many people here yet, because latecomer.

@oppen Mars, back when people could swear it was criss-crossed with canals.

@eli_oat I just checked my website stats. Thank you very much for the link! And did you put it on HN as well, by any chance? Because I got a ton of referrals from there.

Things I wish someone would have taught me when I started : you can't say deep things on purpose.

@CorvusRobotica Oh! Oh! I know what might help. Take a look at shifti.org/ because a lot of what people put there is a metaphor.

@CorvusRobotica Sorry about that, didn't want to be more specific before knowing what you thought about it.

@CorvusRobotica That's funny, The Hunt for the Gay Planet is one of two queer games I reviewed on the IFDB. Don't have much of an insight though. But! You might want to get in touch with the furry community. I have at least one friend who came to accept and discover themselves through VRChat.

@CorvusRobotica Can't really help you with that, but I showed it to some (trusted) friends on Discord. Hope it's all right.

@eli_oat Do you ever stop to think how weird it is that Forth was standardized as a programming language at all when it's really an approach and set of principles? Postfix notation is a detail. Explicit stack manipulation is a detail. It's simply how Charles Moore made a hard problem tractable.

I probably asked this before, but does anyone else find it ironic that the MobileRead.com website isn't mobile friendly?

Nice movie otherwise, by the way. Well worth watching. It could almost have been made in 1980, cheap special effects and all. (Which by the way are so good it might be made to look cheap on purpose.)

So, I just saw The Adventures of Rufus the Fantastic Pet (2020), and something jumped at me: the ham-fisted environmental message aimed at the teenage protagonists. Which reminded me that three decades ago Captain Planet was *also* being all moralistic at teens... but it wasn't *them* soiling the planet.

People really hate it when actions have consequences, don't they?

@CorvusRobotica I'll be going to sleep soon, and I'm on mobile, but ask anyway.

Thankfully they let me close the account with one click, but seriously?! This is why online is a big deal.

Just discovered I somehow had an account on IntenseDebate, that I don't remember making, and definitely never used. It seemed to be connected to my WordPress account somehow? Or else it was auto-created when I commented on a site that used the service. Once. Scary, huh?

I really need to know this, so please boost for visibility:

Are there any people out there on the autistic spectrum that have found a format of living that works for them, that makes them happy?

If you're on the spectrum and feel generally happy or content: do you have a routine, specific coping mechanism(s) or special life conditions that you recommend or feel privileged with? Did you feel happier after excluding some particular element of stress in some way?

If you're on the spectrum and feel generally unhappy: do you think there could be a happy existence for you if society enabled it?
