If anyone still follows me, out there, and wants my PoGO friend code, here you go! Just message me here or at one of the accounts below, so I know whose requests are who!


PSA and reminder:

The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Stop using them.

Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.

"But it's tied to darkness being scary and light being friendly!"

So is racism.

"You're just virtue signaling!"

I'm repeating what Black folks (and even some PoCs) have said multiple times already, about _their own lives_.

Hey, Mastofriends, I'd like some help/feedback on a thing.

I'm building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.

Linked below is my current list. Thoughts?


I know I'm not here as much as I used to be. I'm not here as much as I'd _like_ to be. But I found a really cool thing, and I wanted to share it with you:


This seems to be especially useful for folks living between the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars, though it's also super cool for folks who just really like calendars. I happen to be one of the latter. More on that elsewhere.

Check it out, and help it manifest!

First date? Success! 😍

He's every bit as amazing in person! And I didn't completely flub with my awkward attempts at interaction! And OMG, his little family of cats, rats, and buns is totes adorbs, too! *more excited screaming*

So, if you couldn't tell, I'm pretty happy right now. πŸ’œ

The wonderful thing about transness
Is trans is a wonderful thing!
With the pills and the needles and patches,
And endless rounds of counseling!
The poking, prodding
Surgery plotting
Fun fun fun fun fun!
But the most wonderful thing about trans is
You're not the only one!
Noooooooooot the only one!

PSA and reminder:

The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Please use "blocklist" and "allowlist" instead.

Yes, the terms are old. Yes they're not directly based on race. But they _are_ based in the systemic idea that "white == good; black == bad". Just because something is traditional doesn't mean it's acceptable.

It took me a while to see just how insidious little things like this are, too. It's ok to take some time to understand. Just please switch terms while you do.

If you can't see this, a comic is probably not going to be terribly interesting. πŸ˜•

i am struggling to understand why someone would take cash from another person's wallet, let alone one with a pension concession card in it. At least they dumped my wallet somewhere it was found and i have my ID, wallet and photo of my step dad back. Still need donations to replace the money and the TSS card i had to cancel. t.co/HTscEeEZNB is the link, please share &/or donate as you are able. #youcaring #needinghelp #disabled #queer #pensioner

I mean, they're happening at the pace of the VA, which is not fast at all, but they're still _happening_, which is the important bit.

Especially since I managed to get a counseling appointment set up for the 28th of this month. Been on antidepressants for years, now, so that's about time.

Been a while since I posted, here. Got really busy with a job change, and it's been pretty great. Relationship ended, which wasn't great at all, but wasn't traumatic, either. Just normal heartbreak and loneliness, there. So not all bad.

Went in for a regular check-up with VA medical a few weeks later, and managed the courage to ask about transition stuff. That was a few weeks ago.

Endocrinology finally called today. First appointment 05 Mar. Things are actually happening...

LB: Latest in an ongoing Mastodon serial I've been writing from the point of view of a character I created in the Star Trek universe. It ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, at the moment, and I'm planning to let it stand as is for at least a few days. It's mostly in a single thread, or at least the current arc of the story is. Have a read, if that's your thing!


Over that time, I rose to the rank of Senior Chief, the Sim/Test Division became the Holotechnologies Department (alongside, but no longer part of, Engineering), and I was transferred to SFHQ to manage all of Starfleet's various EMPHA programs. It was a very interesting time for me, and life was going pretty well. I was even deciding whether I would retire or accept a Warrant Officer commission.

Then disaster struck.
