@abetterjulie I really want to love mine, and mostly do, but their software interface is so clunky it's painful

I know I said it was done but since I was changing the side seam anyway, I decided to bring it in a bit at the shoulders and redraft the armscye, and changed the front hem a bit to make the buttons make more sense

And then I printed it again because HECK WHY NOT I am living the large format printing dream

@Lore @Mainebot there are for sure a lot of writers here, but not exclusively!

Hey folks! We're about to upgrade the shop to mastodon 3.4.2 (and maybe beyond!) so let us know if you see anything weird.

@shaen That's what I always end up doing with allauth is copying all the templates I need locally

I don't see it as a hack, I see it as the django templating system working as intended, fwiw

Hello Wandering Shoppers!

@shuttermonster has come forward and is being considered to take up the mantle as one of the Shop's Sysadmins.

Do you have thoughts on this? Please DM (and only DM) @phildini AND @Annalee on Discord or Mastodon (preferably Discord) if so. Please don't post those thoughts publicly, as we want folks' unbiased opinions.

We'll have an update by then end of the week, and we are hoping to build a sysadmin team to share the load, so join the conversation on Discord!

If you have friends who want out, send them to me. I will personally give them a guided tour of the shop, including setting up mobile apps or whatever.

Because I still get (good faith!) questions about it, please, I beg you, don't let your friends join or use c̶o̶u̶n̶t̶e̶r̶.̶s̶o̶c̶i̶a̶l̶

I could express why at length, but here's just one case. Compare how much external JS they load vs the no-external-js for the shop and most other mastodon sites.

If they want to claim they're not selling data, it starts _there_.

There is a surprising lack of content the Shop has seen.

@shopbot @phildini

Uhm, myself? Maybe?

Sort of stuck at the moment, and the house testifies to how many 's I have.

Learning to draw as an adult is one of the hardest things I've done so far.

I made a twitter thread I think people here would appreciate (as it talks about the future of the web and in particular)

I'm trying to auto-cross-post less, so occasionally I'll drop interesting things here.

@light They came out just as expected! Should probably use better strawberries next time, but it's also not season for them

@shopbot @phildini that my first work week is over! It was fun and I enjoyed it, but I'm ready to sleep for a week or two now. I've walked more the last three days than the three months before

Phildini @ The Shop's choices:

Wandering Shop

We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
