I just converted my Fastmail trial to a full plan. There's a lot I like about it, so I'll probably do a review at some point.

if you really want to be your fursona (or other OC), and that fursona/OC is a different gender than what gender you currently think you are, you might be transgender.

Also, if you really want to be your fursona, regardless of gender, you might be transspecies.

I had to learn this the hard way.

"The Indigenous Paleolithic of the Western Hemisphere is a re-claimed history of the deep past of Indigenous people in North and South America during the Paleolithic. Paulette F. C. Steeves mines evidence from archaeology sites and Paleolithic environments, landscapes, and mammalian and human migrations to make the case that people have been in the Western Hemisphere not only just prior to Clovis sites (10,200 years ago) but for more than 60,000 years, and likely more than 100,000 years.

Steeves discusses the political history of American anthropology to focus on why pre-Clovis sites have been dismissed by the field for nearly a century. She explores supporting evidence from genetics and linguistic anthropology regarding First Peoples and time frames of early migrations. Additionally, she highlights the work and struggles faced by a small yet vibrant group of American and European archaeologists who have excavated and reported on numerous pre-Clovis archaeology sites.

In this first book on Paleolithic archaeology of the Americas written from an Indigenous perspective, The Indigenous Paleolithic of the Western Hemisphere includes Indigenous oral traditions, archaeological evidence, and a critical and decolonizing discussion of the development of archaeology in the Americas."

#Foss content is great, but it's the toots about your lives, the birds you see in your garden, work updates, hiking pics, running progress, #catsofmastodon, baking victories, your hobbies and your random thoughts that interest me the most. ❤️

I just said this in a DM but I'mma paraphrase it here because I think it's a good thing to share:

"Computers are often portrayed as a tool of community-building, but for many people, they are entirely inaccessible. It is impossible for them to do community-discovery, let alone community-building. By progressing on with the development of community-building components, before making sure these tools are accessible to people who are not Collaborators favoured by the colonial kyriarchy, people are adding value to colonialism. This increases the pressure on people to assimilate/Collaborate and decreases the pressure on developers to increase accessibility."

Selling print books direct has been an education. The actual process isn't that hard, but it sucks up continual mindshare. And that's an unacceptable long-term overhead.

I can't see doing it again. So grab them while you can.
