Finally! Reached ascension level 3 on #slaythespire with the watcher. I know, I know, it's not such a big deal, but I haven't clicked super well with this character and was stuck here for a while so I am feeling very proud of myself!
For some reason people stopped talking about autonomous zones after the CHAZ was shut down, so most people don’t realize that both George Floyd Square in Minneapolis and the James Talib-Dean Memorial Encampment in Philadelphia are still autonomous 3 months later
They’re also both facing regular threats of invasion and could really use visibility and support. The cops are expecting to be able to clear these places out without anyone else noticing
Hey 3D printing enthusiasts! I am forming a plan for a gift for my SO. He has been having lots of fun making lil useful things with his work's 3D printer, so I was thinking about getting one for our new home (maybe for his birthday in a few months). I will of course do some research, but if anyone can point me in the direction of not too expensive or big but good quality printers, I would appreciate the help!
Being unable to fully experience The Outer Wilds again, which is by far the best game I've ever played, the closest I can get to that is watching Shaun's playthrough of it. Such a great game! Please, either watch it or play it, it is such a woderful feeling of mystery and exploration. And camping!! In space!!!
Had the last #symbaroum session yesterday. Was a little rushed, as we won't meet again before my big move, but we got to hit a lot of the cool points and had a really cool conclusion to our little story!
My group gave me a set of metal dice as a goodbye gift 😭 I am still incredibly touched by their gesture. And super happy that we got to play this together!
Another super fun #symbaroum session! I can feel us powering through so that we get to go to the forest together, it is such a high point of the whole setting that despite how much fun it was so far, it would be a shame to not get to see it!
Had a really good #symbaroum session today! I am moving to a different country so we have about three weeks to finish the adventure we set off on. It's kind of bittersweet, but while we play it's such fun that I get distracted and don't really think about the bitter 😁

This might be the darkest shit I’ve ever posted on here, first hand or second.
It also pretty much encapsulates how I feel about the coming reopening.
And the choice of symbol is especially resonant, given my wife (correctly) banned me from buying Sharpies years ago until I finish off the ones I’ve still got. https://t.co/s3mNAksTwe
Has anyone bumped in to any concrete numbers over the environment impact of our usage of suboptimal software, eg js+web tech instead of native desktop apps, the power usage of crypto currencies, the cost of constantly brute forcing problems instead of elegant solutions?
Any data is much appreciated - it trying to write something intelligent about this.
Hey, my island is open for dreams. (This concept still confuses me slightly but whatever) Feel free to drop by, but keep in mind my island is super basic so don't expect essentially anything #animalcrossingnh
Do we have a date? Nope. But! We are all in the same city and not quarantined. So! We! Are! Close!!
One idea they floated that struck me as really intelligent was heavily taxing unused hotel rooms--the idea being to force hotels to supply homeless people with unused rooms. If they do so, they receive strictly the cost of overhead (no profit), and they're punished if they don't supply the room.
It's a really intelligent example of something that could be implemented now and which capital has no way of preventing through outsourcing or flight (you can't outsource the hotel).
