sffbookclub meta crowdfund 

The Mastodon crowd-fund is again operational on @Liberapay at liberapay.com/Mastodon_SFFBook

When Liberapay had problems last month, I withdrew the balance to date. I have just set what I withdrew (less the processing fee) to go back into the fund over the next month, at which time I will resume my own regular contribution.

As always, PM me if you need help affording the club selection or want more information about contributing.

Thank you!

I'm Naga. A statistical consultant by training and trade, but more here for general social interaction, especially geeky, sometimes sexy/kinky, and occasionally left-wing political. Oh, and new-dad stuff. Dragonlet is my toddler, Jalan is my wife.

I am so sick and tired of "fascists and cops are threatening to kill Black people" being met with "but can you prove they're GOOD Black people? 🤔 " Fuck you. Fuck you. Fuck you.

I looking for more RPG accounts to follow – the self-inflicted problem I have is that this is my RPG account and on it, I’d like to see mostly RPG-only posts. How do I achieve that? The accounts I’m looking for must also be RPG alts, or the accounts of RPG monomaniacs. Are you one of these? Let me know. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll have to start think about changing my ways. Noooo! Anyway, I’d like to talk more about table techniques and inspirational material, odd game rules, etc.

When I was a kid I used to listen to this song that referred to Jesus as the "prince of peace," but I kept mishearing the lyrics, so for a good chunk of my childhood I thought that one of Jesus' titles was the "prince of thieves"

Basic functionality for a streamer, folks, especially if you're going to expand your library like this.

Wasn't sure about Cavill as Holmes, but I think he works as the Concerned Older Brother here, because all he really has to do is be Larger than Enola, and what is Henry Cavill if not Larger than all of us.

Gonna fire one of my clients after current task.

I need the money, but not badly enough to put up with them anymore.

They underpay me even before the asshole surcharge.

We learn that the future of computing is

Tablet computers with non-backlit colour e-ink screens, with non-screen surface area for holding it and styluses for data entry

And I think that's beautiful

Health/injury, surgery, sexual activity mention 

Jalan appears to have a torn tendon in her hip. Our guess is it came from a new-to-us sex position.

The pain didn't respond to steroids, so next step is an MRI.

Which means a jeweler first to cut her rings off from before weight gain (no alternate strategies needed, ty).

Surgery recovery involves 6 weeks on crutches, then rehab, which means she has to put up with the pain until the school year ends.

Oh yes, $1,300 for the MRI because Freedom.

I remember I used to talk about my aged laptops as "good enough for web browsing but not serious work." Now its the other way around.

I'm looking to buy some new masks and was hoping to support an artist or craftsperson, anybody making or designing masks on here?

Personal opinion, but I rather read what type of slur was used instead of (letter)-slur. I think it is much clearer to understand problems that way, specially if someone doesn't know that language that well.

Example: I rather read "transphobic slur" than "T-slur".

pro-choice activism, buffer zones, ukpol, scotpol 

if anyone hasn't already seen it, an Edinburgh-based campaign group is petitioning the government to introduce buffer zones around sexual health clinics so that women seeking information and advice about terminations (and anyone else who needs to use sexual health services) is safe from intimidation and harrassment! they've already got a few thousand signatures but i'll post the link in the replies #prochoice
