@stephaniewalter oh hey I had to read that for a management class.
@Humble not that I’ve seen.
Hi hello good evening the rainforest is burning. If you're in the US, you might not know what you can do to help. Here's some ideas:
It's mostly "donate" and "sign petitions", but every bit helps until we find better collective actions.
I'm pleased to announce the v1.0.0 release of Hometown, my Mastodon fork! It's up to date with Mastodon v2.9.3, and unique features include:
- Local only posting
- Full support for rendering incoming `Article` posts from federated blogs like Write.As
- "Exclusive" lists that let you follow someone without clogging up your home timeline
For more info, including rationale for each new feature, check out our wiki:
And the release itself is here:
Hey, folks. I'm still in a bind regarding housing. I think I have permanent housing lined up starting the 28th, but I still have one more week in the motel I have to pay for. ($305 for the 21st - 28th.) If anyone can help, even a little bit, I would be most grateful.
(In addition to stressing about housing I'm fighting some viral thing that has me wrecked right now.)
@StaleWhiteBread that's fine.
@StaleWhiteBread what kind of promotion? Like posting some toots? Cuz that fine. Setting up an account just to promote it, I'm a little less OK with.
Wow. Trying #CavesOfQud with permadeath turned off and load/save turned on, and already it's a MUCH more enjoyable experience.
In fact, it almost feels like this is how you're supposed to play it, since it takes a lot of the pressure to play optimally off, and instead you can play around with builds that might not be perfect. In fact it feels like i'm playing the standard mode of most RPGs after only using the ironman mode.
Today's accomplishment: with the help of a bunch of grammar references, Google Translate, and squinting at my Language Drops collection, I've written a few sentences in #Tagalog to a stranger!
I've been trying to learn, very slowly, since May.
The stranger in question is my AirBNB host for my upcoming stay in San Francisco, who is bilingual. (I also included the English translation of what I intended to say, of course.)

Kumusta! Dadalaw ako sa mga kaibigan ko, at sasalita ako nasa "Roguelike Celebration". Ito ang pangtatlo kong pagbisita sa San Francisco; nasasabik ako! (Ang aking inay at tatay ay Pilipino; gusto kong matuto ng Tagalog, pero mahirap. Sana iyong maintindihan! 😀 )

Every time it's in the news, I'm reminded of how that smug a-hole Mama Mayer shafted her working-mom employees. Despite the buckets of virtual feminist blood shed on every feminist board ever over moms vs. non-moms in the workplace, I don't think on the most productive day of my CF life I could've been 1/1,000th as petty & mean to working parents as she was. :P
