I totally forgot to mention that folks can support development of LaraComic with monetary donations, if they want and are able! Just added a list of ways to contribute to the GitHub Sponsor button, but thought I'd list them here, too:

Hey folks! You may have seen this already, but I've fixed the link, and I'd still like some help/feedback on the thing.
I'm (still) 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.
I need to work on work stuff.
I need to work on Microbox.
I need to work on Calends.
I need to work on self care.
I need to be able to focus to do any of those.
I can't focus, today. My grandmother passed this morning, and I'm not sure I'll be able to make the funeral. Already missed one grandmother's funeral because I was out to sea at the time, so I'd really like to not miss any others. But since my "great state" has garnished my income, I'm pretty broke.
Anyone out there remember ReBoot? The original, not the current retry.
I wanna be able to RP it. That means https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/techsupportcentral/hardboot-a-d20-rpg needs to get funded successfully.
I'm sad because it really looks like it won't.
The final days to #BundleUp4Whitney are here, so jump on it while you still can! https://itch.io/b/396/thoughty-bundle-up-for-whitney-delaglio Support a designer & artist in need and get some rad games to play, too! The bundle has been pretty successful so far, so I'd like a few good days to close it out! Share too!
I find myself wondering how late I am to the conversation about turning black friday into Black friday... As in, it's not about sales, but about celebrating Black folk. The corporate machines will still grind out their "sales", dropping things to nearly-affordable prices from whatever insane amounts they raised them to ahead of November, but we could make today about something, if we wanted to.
I'm white as paper, so this isn't my conversation to have. But I'm curious.
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.

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. 💜
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.
Name's Penis Enby. I'm a 31yo sex worker based in the US. That means all my #sexwork is filmed, to keep it legal, and that you can watch several of my encounters on various #amateur #porn sites, which I'll link below, and periodically toot about as things get added to each.
I have several other Masto accounts, on several servers, so some of you may recognize me from those. I'll do my best not to let those accounts overlap with this one, aside from the occasional boost.
You can find me, and my work, at https://www.manyvids.com/Profile/1001423251/penisenby/ – with many more to come!
