Pinned toot

My spouse has written a bunch of books and has just started a podcast. If you could support his Patreon, it'd help us recover from a precipitous drop in income a few months ago.

I've written about the podcast here hollymath.dreamwidth.org/94197

Mastonauts don't seem to use favorites that much but I favorite everything.

Only things I really do like! But I like a lot of things.

Hope it doesn't bug anybody.

This tree is named Hyperion. Standing at a height of 115.61 metres, it is Earth's tallest known living tree.

Hyperion is a coast redwood (sequoia sempervirens) and it lives somewhere in Redwood National Park in California. The exact location is remote, and is being kept secret to avoid any potential ecological damage or vandalism which too many visitors might bring.

god, i really love modern user interfaces. especially that thing where you miss the tiny, awkward-shaped button you need to click by ONE FUCKING PIXEL and something completely different happens, almost certainly destroying your context, sometimes destroying three hours' work.

really brilliant stuff, UI designers. more of this please, because it's just so easy and fun to work with.

Ana Mardoll on the amazing third option for a fight scene with a woman in it: not gritty gore and not effortless ballet but something else: Holtzmann. :)

"She's not a man, but she's allowed to move like we let men move." I love that.

Also " I spent a long time not realizing I'm queer because while I'm attracted to women, the "willowy River Tam is broken at you" character does nothing* for me." OH HELL YES IT ME.

We're seeking visually impaired or blind people with coding experience who want to help ensure solid screen reader behavior in a new iteration of the CodeMirror in-browser code editor. Accessibility in the previous iteration is terrible, and I want to do better this time around.

If you're prepared to answer questions about coding while blind, or to test-drive the current prototype of the editor, please get in touch here or via marijn@haverbeke.nl

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive and Neighbors for More Neighbors. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
