I just backed this game about dragons and weaving. Looks awesome!
Pacome is currently collecting sky pictures for a sky map experiment on http://waend.com
If you have the opportunity, he is looking for one picture of the sky from where you are, taken as vertical as possible, body facing south (so north will be up on the pic), and with gps coordinates included (or the approximative address of the pic).
Or simply drop that pic on email@example.com
Today is better! Thanks!
Pacome collecte actuellement des images du ciel pour une expérience de carte du ciel sur http://waend.com
Si vous en avez l'occasion, il cherche une photo du ciel d'où vous êtes, prise aussi verticalement que possible, le corps orienté vers le sud (donc le nord sera sur la photo), et avec les coordonnées gps incluses (ou l'adresse approximative de la photo).
Ou simplement déposer cette photo sur firstname.lastname@example.org
Aujourd'hui : encore mieux. Merci !
@Kyresti Define 'win'. The goose would make off with all the Bells but Nook would demand repayment with interest.

covid-19, working class, organizing
Seriously, I've got friends in the hospitality business. They're already struggling to get by. Layoffs are gonna devastate some of them.
It's time for some serious organizing around this. Universal health care, universal paid sick leave, universal full salary unemployment benefit for disruptions by emergency.
People should not be bearing the brunt of the failures of a system designed for maximal wealth extraction rather than wellbeing and resilience.
Would anyone be interested in helping boost the signal for crowdfunding for https://www.starfriends.org?
It's a properly gender-inclusive social network/online dating site, with killer pronoun features, and we only need £150 to cover hosting costs for a year. :)
Wanna help a comrade who just had a very shitty thing happen to them, but don't have time right now?
Good! Set an alarm for a few weeks from now.
Community support is often strong immediately after bad news and declines quickly within the first 2 weeks unless the person effected explicitly asks for help again.
Recovery from an intense experience often takes 6 to 8 weeks or more.
Be that person that still checks in and makes time for that comrade 3, 5 and 8 weeks after the shitty thing.

Happy first day of March-- wait! Today is really a rare extra day of February!
Leap Day comes once every 4 years. I like to see them as a reminder that calendars are not themselves time, just a human effort to measure time, which unavoidably gets awkward. I also like to use Leap Day as a special day to review the last 4 years. Then I make plans & predictions for the next 4.
If I have time (even with today being itself extra time), I'll make some additions to this thread about how I like to observe Leap Day.
Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.
Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.
This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.
Some writerish guy. He/they.
