Hey folks,

If you have some spare Liberapay cash laying around would you please consider sending it to Sophie Lagace?

liberapay.com/SophieLagace

She outlines the reasons in her blog post here:

Suffice to say they're going to though a rough patch and could use the financial support.

Thanks!

Spent part of the day cleaning out my main keyboard on my desktop (Leopold mechanical with Cherry Black Switches).

Honestly though I think I'd go back to a full-on membrane keyboard ala Atari 400 if I never have to do that again.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL NONBINARY PEOPLE'S DAY

Hey #InternationalNonbinaryDay #nonbinaryday peeps, let's do selfies & promos. #nonbinaryday18

I'm a game designer, journalist, & leader. I even make games about selfies! You can find my work at briecs.com, BrieCS.itch.io, & my KS at tinyurl.com/behindthemascKS

Hey! A friend suggested I make this genderfluid nonbinary tabletop gamer flag design I made into a tshirt, and today's a good day for it - check it out! teepublic.com/t-shirt/2890513-

One thing that subscribing to BBC Music Magazine has done is made me more keenly aware of The Proms than I ever would be in the USA.

You'd think it was Classical Music's Superbowl.

Wonder if someone has kicked around making libre.fm have ActivityPub support?

I really need to figure out how to remind myself that pushd and popd exist and that they're damned handy.

Lollipop Cloud is now 100% independent and self-hosted and all the things.

No more shared anything (domain / dns included)

Check out the updated domain at https://lollipopcloud.solutions

ALL services have been migrated thanks to the core Lollipop Team doing a *ton* of work over the last week or so.

Please boost/toot/etc so people know where to find us again 😉

Finding out that @lmorchard now streams on Twitch:

twitch.tv/videos/283468638

Had to go to "that other site" to learn this. Hrmph. 😏

Would make sense for a static site generating platform like ? Or does it require something to keep track of things?

In other words, could I get away with generating a ActivityPub "file" like I do with RSS?

I wonder at what point things like physical media will be in vogue again. What will it take for people to realize they're in perpetual renting-mode?

Reason I'm wondering this is I ran across a workout DVD that was included with my balance ball chair. At some point (maybe even now) they'll include a link to a video to save money / gather information about the purchaser. And at some point that link will no longer work. So at some point there won't be whatever spiff they've claimed was on the box.
