I did so much work on Starscan today, everybody! It is so close! EXCITED!!!!!!!

I don't even know what year I'm supposed to be complaining about anymore

I'm ready for my close up now, internet.

I was thinking about streaming gamedev stuff on twitch, but no one wants to watch me duckduckgo things for 2 hours straight.

Twitter is an advertising website with social tools masquerading as a social media website with advertising tools.

If you need to leave an online community for any reason, it is absolutely ok to do so. Humans are dynamic. You are a human.

I've run a big text adventure for thirteen years (at one point briefly it was the biggest text adventure!) and if there's one thing I've about managing a big online community in that time that I'd choose to pass on as a warning to others, it's this: remove the people who don't like being there.

Some folks just don't like the place, or they liked it once and they don't anymore, and that's fine.

You'd think they'd just go somewhere else, and most do, but some don't, and those folks are AWFUL.

I am Dave's Killer Bread's Flavor Crater.

Me: Discusses the use of modality in international punk music to create identity.

I am making, how do you say, ah yes: A mess.

The resource estimates of Adtir have proven correct! Not only do we have access to enough resources to continue our journey, but our scans indicate the likely presence of ancient artifacts that might help us on our mission to gather information dead civilizations. We will send an away team too investigate.

Entering the Aras system depleted our short-stay resources, but the health of the crew was at stake, so we continued to survey the system. Four orbiting bodies have been detected, including our target planet, Adtir, the primarily ocean planet once host to a vibrant civilization. A final stop through the Erae Belt to replenish our water supply will probably be in order before our departure.

NOMAD-9 Starscan, reached the Aras system on schedule, with minimal crew casualties. The 4 planets that orbit Aras are thought to be resource rich, if not hazardous.

WandaVision is a lens for society to evaluate the burden and trauma we share trying maintain the illusion of the nuclear family. Touching on everything from toxic masculinity, to the second shift, to the mistreatment of outsiders, to how it threatens our children.

Maybe the abstraction of asserted realities that social media AI/ML systems create on behalf of advertisers is the strange abyss of cosmic horror. takes hit You know?

But yeah. Dealing with FOSS communities can be exhausting
