Pinned toot

Everybody: I've been taking a few weeks off social-media in general. For the foreseeable future, don't expect me to be keeping up with my whole local timeline or everything.

But do @ me! I'm pretty much warranted to check notifications every other day or so.

TO BE PINNED - Explanation of puzzling following/unfollowing behavior:

On tabletop.social as well as dice.camp and other role-playing-game-centric instances, I'm mostly following people interested in the same games as I (i.e. typically not D&D/PF).

HOWEVER I've been exploring the network by hashtag searches, and tend to follow people from other instances who mention RPGs (including D&D). There's a rationale to that, feel free to inquire.

Just tell me if that feels creepy. I'll GTFO your yard.

Since we're doing the thing, I'm from -and based in- Italy, pushing 40, masc/he but also a bit of a princess. Historian (Early-modern Japan especially), translator&teacher (English), used to work in manga/anime but no more. I play a lot of, collect & design quirky self-contained aka - both 1shot and short campaigns. Played ages ago, but I'm bored of D&Disms (though I might be down for some radical deconstructionist talk).

Back online after (almost) a week! Truly I live in a land of failing infrastructures.

"Less of a question, more of a comment." NO. DO NOT. Imma teach you how not to be that guy at panels—& answer the questions (about honor, gender, cyberpunk, & Steven Universe) we ain't had time for at PAX East's "Designing Asian Settings and Themes" panel! jamesmendezhodes.com/blog/2019

Garfield the Deals Warlock offers you a magical wailing gauntlet! It has an Orcish accent and it sings discordant notes that put you on edge.

A friend of mine lives in a country where everyone has ID numbers. They were originally used to identify before gov, medical, and military services.

But now these numbers are also taken to identify for CC purchases which means everything from internet service to ordering pizza. Amazon now also demands them for shipping.

Everyone's collecting them but everyone also pretends it's a super secret password only you know. And that same number still exposes private gov/health data.

So here's what I'm thinking..

People need to stop treating open source programmers who work for free with the same expectations as you treat microsoft or google. People working for the love of a product who maybe arent the best programmers, still deserve respect and to not be treated like shit.

devs, exploit writers, modders, hackers, patchers, don't deserve your shit. Wait for the release and be patient. They're working as hard as they can. Stop asking for the next Jailbreak or New tool or Software Feature.

We have some exciting news! The team at Purism are thrilled to announce the launch of Librem One librem.one Private and secure email, chat, social and VPN. #LibremOne

Facebook has "unintentionally" harvested the email address books of about 1.5 million users during the past 3 years.

This was done as part of the new user sign in process, where users were prompted to enter their email password to verify themselves.

As part of that process Facebook helped themselves to their address books to build up the social graph and "suggest new friends".
