@makegodgayagain They are VERY helpful for topics.
So even if things I post might not be triggering, I know that some people may not want a huge thing about a niche topic. I use a CW for it (most of the time).
It's a really cool tool

new website up at

(will move to proper domain once i get the old content off that wordpress instance)

Please excuse the lack of styling & content; it's very new and ambitious in scope.

๐Ÿ˜ซ The winter sale caught us off-guard (we didn't get the email telling us to set it up), so I just spent a whirlwind couple of hours setting up banners and blog posts for both it and another upcoming holiday sale.

I hate when that stuff sneaks up on us, whether it's because we let it slip or because the storefront didn't send an email out. Seasonal discounts should be super routine (or, I mean, not a thing at all, because fuck steep discount culture and fuck capitalism).

Someday I'll get into the habit of posting my dev updates here, too, but:

tldr; I'm waiting until post-Chrimmus (but pre-New Years) to do the big update so that all the last-minute crafters using the site for patterns won't be caught out without access before their due date. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'm really interested in science fiction that doesn't presume human ways of understanding and being

So like instead of different alien species being just variations on humans of a similar size and body type, starting with a completely different understanding of life and ways of communication

Rather than using the human idea of sapience/sentience, having a completely different way of categorizing and valuing things

Solarpunk Backgrounds
i want to share some of the illustrated solarpunk scenes iโ€™ve come across while internetting. A lot of this art isnโ€™t made for being solarpunk but it gives me strong solar punk vibes

Luc Schuiten
Beautiful cityscapes with organic shapes and a strong art noveau influence.

Victorin Ripert
Concept artist building world and characters.

Sarah Webb
Beautiful scene design. Also does comics and character design.

Iโ€™ll love to find more! Does anyone know artists who draw scenes with #solarpunk vibes?

I'm live on twitch! Come hang out with me while I play Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor:

Not sure if this will get (m)any votes, but what should I stream tonight? Epistory (, which has the bonus of being typing practice on the new keyboard, or more Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor (, which I am enjoying greatly?

cyberpunk 2077 

i don't know how to say "this is not a joke, cyberpunk 2077 literally induces seizures on purpose" in such a way that people realize i'm not joking, cyberpunk 2077 literally induces seizures on purpose

stream update 

I'm rather sleep deprived today, so I'm rescheduling tonight's stream to Thursday at 19:30 ET. :QueerCatHeart: It'll probably still be either Epistory or continuing Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor.

Now that I'm getting close to my first big update to Granny Squares in 3 years, I'm getting very nervous. ๐Ÿ˜…

What if I mess up the mysql --> postgresql switchover, and my own testing of the result misses some weird column data type issue?

What if I break the login process in a way that makes a lot of accounts inaccessible?

Gaaaahhhh. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

COVID, N Carolina vaccine plan, + 

Phase 1a: healthcare workers / medical first responders at high risk of exposure based on work duties or vital to vaccine distribution

1b: residents in long-term care settings; people w/2+ chronic conditions IDd as increased risk of severity; people over 65 years who live in congregate settings(i.e., migrant farm camps, prisons/jails, homeless shelters); staff of congregate settings

2: people in congregate living settings younger than 65 or have <2 conditions; frontline workers at high/mod risk of exposure w/<2 conditions; healthcare workers; adults w/1 chronic condition; 65+ w/<2 chronic conditions

Can please boost me? Question for people not from the US (or Canada, probably): Do you feel like ideas like "racism is discrimination + systemic power" or "reverse-racism isn't real" are in some way ideas from the US? Would those seem foreign to you? Are claims around those and "we're not from the same culture, so we have different views" as disingenuous as it sounds to me or am I off?

thanksgiving psa:

colonizers don't get to make jokes about americans spreading plague as a thanksgiving tradition. i have no clue why you'd think its chill to make genocide jokes, especially at a time where indigenous populations on reservations are being decimated by C19.

give money to indigenous people and amplify their voices instead.

Tonight's impressive Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor achievement is: "Windowshopper". Apparently not many folks go and look at every store for stuff. ๐Ÿง
