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.

Pinned toot

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

On as well as 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).

Fuck can you imagine if businesses started using instances like they make facebook groups for like work stuff? I just thought of this and chills ran down my spine

Need some tough love on my Iron Facets project. It is raw, unedited, and need a lot of linguistic polishing, but I'm fairly happy about where it has landed.

It is a description-centered fantasy story game, with few numerics or scores, influenced by several game mechanics (PbtA, FitD, Fate/FAE, Cthulhu Dark, Sorcerers & Sellswords). Due to license specifications regarding adaptations, I'm inclined to release this under something else than the CC BY 4.0 it has now.

Also, a concerted effort by Team to save some porn from the fire:

NSFW warning: links are to a blog w/small nude picture in the corner (a painting) and kinky links in the blogroll.

I know that self-interest is like, the grossest way to get people to care, but isn't it interesting ("""interesting""") that a pair of bills nominally about human trafficking have targeted voluntary sex workers (including people in pornography) and is now splashing over onto basically anybody who trips a very poorly trained algorithm because you made a joke about Kirby not wearing pants?

Enforcement of FOSTA / SESTA is a goddamn privacy and expression nightmare. And this was bipartisan!

imagine if websites loved getting rid of white supremacists as much as they love taking safe platforms away from sex workers lol

FOSS is free as in toilet

Excellent statement, absolutely true

All the luxuries which come with being in a position of wealth and power (drivers, cooks, bodyguards, personal assistants) are analogous to the wilful relinquishing of bodily autonomy which characterises adult babies.

So when men in positions of power are portrayed as babies, this is simply a metaphorical exposition of what it really means to exercise power, and, more to the point, to be a capitalist: It means undoing not only other people's personhood, but also your own.

Hey crowd, what's the best way to install run untrusted software in a sandbox, while not having the performance tank?
A full VM seems to not work very well for me, at least in VirtualBox.
