@staticsafe I'd also like to tag on a reminder for everyone to go through their follow lists and check if they still follow someone at a witches.town username. If so, check to see if their account has been marked as moved, or if they've posted a new username!

'Terms of service, didn't read' is a website which collates human readable summaries of the terms of service of major Internet platforms. May be useful to those of you who have ever clicked 'I agree' without *actually* reading the terms of service. In other words, practically everybody!

I... I...

ouch.

I swear today's Newman update cost me braincells. Crossovers are all well and good, but.. but.. but... NO!

artists of mastodon... a question.

I have a daughter, age 11 who is VERY interested in beginning to do digital art and animation.

what is the cheapest best way to get her equipped with a system that will give her a pressure sensitive brush, but also draws on screen?

A MS Surface?

What is better?

I'm writing a guidebook for activism.

Dear world,
resist.guide
is online.

My insurance company hasn't paid my disability this year.
I'm being evicted.
I'm trying to somehow produce enough benefit to the community that people can risk spending their money, right now, to help me out.

Please share this with others, and on other social networks.

Good activism tools help us all.
Help me stay alive, please?

Damn it, NYT. "Swaziland's King Wants His Country to Be Called eSwatini." No, no, /no/.

His country IS called eSwatini. He wants the rest of us to use the native name instead of the Anglicized name going forward.

This is (in form, not cultural context) like Spain's government asking the international community to call the country España from now on.

Just one person for #followfriday today: @Are0h, whose voice I always appreciate in the fediverse even (especially) when saying things that push me out of my privileged comfort zone. Also just a very kind individual!

Plus they recently converted from Mongodb to Postgres so they're clearly heading down the right technical path ;)

It's this huge of my writing that I love so much but so rarely write about them in my long fiction. I don't entirely know why that is, but it is.

I have several short stories with werewolves, but my attempts to do novels that include werewolves have always fizzled.

The magic system in my original world COULD allow shapeshifting at higher levels, but it wouldn't be anything like werewolves.

Maybe one day I'll get a good werewolf book going. *sigh*
