Anyone wanna buy a quick commission?
We got hit by hurricane Micheal and only got power back today. We had to toss everything in our fridge/freezer and, because I work from home, I lost out on about a $100 worth of work ;_;
I'd love to take some commissions if anyone is interested! Here's a few examples with pricing but I'll take other types too! Price is also negotiable.
DM me for more info/if you're interested!
The storm came and went. It's now Autumn in the City of Oaks; dangerous strolls through the season of dropping acorns.
I have a knot on my scalp.
hey yall, if you’re looking for ways to help after the hurricane, here are a couple things to note:
-sending cash doesn’t feel as good as sending stuff, but it’s actually much more effective
-local grassroots organizations have a better sense of the needs of communities than big NGOs
-before giving to a new charity, check their score on Charity Navigator
-the Red Cross is trash

Accidentally got caught in front of a comedy bit being streamed by my wife while eating. It was the kind of comedy that might make me refuse food for the rest of my life. Time to shelter under this pillow 'til morning.
I am one of these two chairs.
Checking in with people you care about can only do so much if there is inadequate healthcare available when they say, “honestly, I’m really not okay.”
@codesections This entire thread now makes me want to confuse the shit out of people when I tell them that I:
- Duck-searched it.
- Quacked it up.
- Ducked it.
- Put some feathers on it.
- Web-foot walked that shit.
- TCPed with DDG on the 443.
Just so they ask for clarification and fall into my trap where I explain how terrible google is and suggest alternatives :)
When listening to “Mattachine” this morning, I heard about Unerased—a resource for social studies teachers to bring #LGBT stories and voices into their classrooms. If you know (or are!) a teacher, this could be a wonderful add to a classroom to help #queer kids learn their history and make for a better world. https://unerased.org/
Mastodon is not a good place to share private data. It's a distributed set of SQL databases. There's no real oversight or accountability. There's not really even an attempt to secure anything. There's no encryption, even for DMs. It's all stored in plaintext in Postgres (and often elsewhere, like Elasticsearch and Amazon S3).
Commissions Stuff, Money Show more
At the end of the month I'm gonna get to see my partner for the first time in almost three months. Unfortunately I have to buy bus tickets up to see them, and while I have a bit saved up that's for my apartment and I really need to make the money that the ticket costs. So this is me reminding y'all that I have commissions open and could really use the money! Even if you can't afford a commission please boost this so more people see it!
