@shopbot @phildini Currently in the middle of THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE THE TIME WAR, which is great fun.

If you donโ€™t have enough over the top epic fantasy movies to watch, hereโ€™s a an awesome one from Tollywood: Baahubali netflix.com/title/80204118

@Gargron Can you determine the age of imported accounts? Maybe there's a threshold at which delaying notifications is appropriate.

@DialMforMara Adventure Sync was great for me. I only need to get the daily capture, daily spin, and daily research, and can get walking credit when my phone is in my pocket. I try to keep three finished research items in queue so I have plenty of time if I get a daily like "make an excellent throw" or "catch N X-type pokรฉmon".

@DialMforMara @gretchenmcc My mom is a tech writer and big on understanding courtesy, so I would pitch things to her as being medium-dependent etiquette.

Would that be up your momโ€™s alley?

@shopbot @phildini A reworking of Dungeons and Dragons (framed in Fate RPG rules) with a more ecological perspective and no moral shortcuts. The manga DELICIOUS IN DUNGEON got me started on it. comixology.com/Delicious-in-Du

Nero likes to spend about five minutes under a blanket when the humans go to bed. It goes best for us when we provide him one of his own.

โ€œIf a fish is the movement of water embodied, given shape, then cat is a diagram and pattern of subtle air.โ€ โ€” Doris Lessing

I quote this whenever one of our clowder demonstrates that they left their feline grace in their other pyjamas.

@mishellbaker I'd have a room that was a shady forest glade, with lots of fun places for the cats to play and stalk, without any of the threats theyโ€™d face in a real backyard. Plus some comfortable chairs and a hammock for the humans.
