My interests are covered in my profile. On I've briefly known the Black Dog in the past and work hard to keep him on a leash. My wife lives with bundled with and (though has a grip on all of them) and her illnesses are one of the things that drive me to be so passionate about support and care. Which is why I set up this Masto instance; a safe place to socialise and chat. ๐Ÿ‘

@mookie Just noticed The Last Ship S1-4 is available over here. I know you had some reservations but time to catch up from S1E1. ๐Ÿ˜

Ah, good old cluster headaches piercing my right eye. You can tell it's autumn. ๐Ÿ™

millennials? too much avocado toast. zoomers? too much gaming. boomers? too much getting the US into unnecessary wars and creating tax policy that creates unsustainable wealth inequality and destroying the world by refusing to address climate change. gen-x: Pearl Jam? seriously?

It looks like the small, artisan business that made my locking cuff are no longer online or in business. This makes me sad. They were awesome. โ˜น๏ธ

That said, TODO: catch up on people very soon. โค๏ธ

I managed some writing and game mechanics tweaks for the first time in over a month. It feels good. I'm feeling like I can start putting the RPG core mechanics together into one document now.

My mind is also quiet and balanced, or so it seems, for the first time in years. So I need to be careful to not push myself too hard.

Still, I like the creative vibe. I WILL publish this thing.

It's World Mental Health Day.

Talk to each other. Talk to a stranger. You don't have to be alone in a crisis.

Not everyone has the spoons to talk or listen and that's okay. But sometimes just a stick is all you need. Don't take my word for it, take Boggle the Owl's.

Be safe. โค๏ธ

Annnd, it's out on Steam

15% launch discount on either Itch or Steam, for one week only :)

Just found this article about Greenpeace becoming an 'open source' organisation. Quite ironic, since a few months ago I met one of their principal IT managers, who openly mocked our efforts to use #foss and #opensource IT in-house. Greenpeace relies 100% on Google's Gsuite. Any comparison with fair trade coffee was met with a "yeah but this is easier, we just don't care about Google's dubious side."

One of the delights of founding is the discovery of how many members of the Church of the SubGenius were already in the fediverse. If you're looking for where the SubGenii are, we are here and there and everywhere. Lurkers and smirkers, tooters and pooters - sedated, elated and federated - down on the job and high on "Bob" - slack is where you find it. Find it when you JOIN...

Shout out to people.

Sorry I've been quiet this week and unresponsive to messages. I and my whole family have been quite ill and are just about getting better. I'll try to catch up with things tomorrow. Hugs. โค๏ธ

update part 2: that being said, I think it's helpful to talk about mental health like a round of antibiotics: just because the infection looks like it's gone doesn't mean you stop taking the antibiotics ๐Ÿง

what is it with conservative news sources making the things they oppose sound insanley attractive and cool.

why yes, i do wish to join in the the psychedelic rave nature cult to save the earth
