Ironically or not, I'm merchandizing tf out of that Jewish anarchist symbol I made, owing to my ongoing financial problems: Apologies in advance for the gendered fits (Male/Female).

The symbol itself is also already available on Wikimedia Commons under a CC-Zero license:

#ADHD folks who have brainmeds for that, does it help with emotional aspects of ADHD in addition to the practical concentration stuff?


I'm having a problem with gui emacs on Linux Mint. I can't kill more than a single paragraph at a time.

I've checked a half-dozen how-to-emacs sites and they all give the same instructions for marking the stuff you want to kill and using the kill command, but no matter how much I mark, it only ever kills one paragraph.

Anyone willing/able to help me figure this out?

Do you think people are more interested in a poll’s results than actually voting in it?

Morning all.

I forgot to put a blog post up yesterday, it's been that kind of week. In theory today should be better. See what happens.

How you doing?

hello fediverse!

Hi everyone--we've had a big influx of spammers and trolls lately, so far all on other servers. Please report them when you see them, and make liberal use of the block button.

This current wave is pretty obvious trolling with blatantly racist content. I encourage folks to report the account and not respond. We will suspend these assholes as the reports come in.

Okay, weird, random, and awesome.

Yesterday I got two messages on Goodreads asking about a collection of short stories that I had pulled from sale to edit/revamp and then got sick and it never got back up.

It seems there was a thread in a Goodreads group about paranormal romances, and this collection (which has MAYBE a handful of sales the entire time it was up) got recommended, and now there's at least a dozen or so folk trying to find it...

So... it looks like I've got some editing to do?

Random: i still haven't seen Captain Marvel (and honestly don't know if I ever will). But I'm baffled at how people keep talking about how little expression she has.

From the still shots I've seen, the character has plenty of expressiveness. It's just that she's not emoting with her mouth (smiling, frowning, etc), she's emoting with her eyebrows, her eyes, the angle of her head.

Okay, so she doesn't use her mouth much. So what?

I'm and i can see this. Why can't anyone else?!

Morning all.

Not much to say today, but I'm here. *waves*

I know my followers on fedi are all very comfy people so one of you is bound to be running a queer-friendly minecraft server right? Please dm me I wanna play with my gf.

Okay, so far so good story and rep-wise, but the only way this author is distinguishing between English and ASL is English is in double quotes and ASL is in single quotes. And I really wish they'd used something more distinct bc I'm GOING to get confused with my executive dysfunction being as bad as it is.

After seeing so many poorly done characters in the past year, I nearly passed on this book just because it has a Deaf character.

I haven't even started reading yet and I'm so happy I gave this a shot. I don't know if the author is Deaf or has Deaf family or what, but they opened the book with a quick rundown on Deaf vs deaf, the difference between English and ASL grammar, and generally made it clear that THIS author knows what the fuck they are doing. (and is fluent in ASL)

Went looking for something to read and found what looks to be a fun MM romance with an disabled sub.

Lots of feels about his struggles bc my pet can't kneel and reading this character feeling like because he can't kneel he isn't any good as a sub... it resonates a bit too much with some struggles pet and I have had.

I'm looking forward to seeing this character learn differently.

I'm doing really bad when Civ moves too fast for my brain...

Friday? Sorry, you're taking a three day weekend. Kobolds' orders. Yes, that apostrophe is in the right place.

I'm not sure how many kobolds it will take to carry you out of the office on your rolling desk chair but we'll figure it out.
