Hello, mastodon :) I'm a historian specialising in the #history of the Caucasus & in digital humanities! I'm also a #writer, game developer (#gamedev), radical left-liberal, painfully British, living in #Vienna, #Tolkien + #DoctorWho fan, folk storyteller, and lover of obscure unusual animals, especially pangolins. Do say hello, or don't, or whatever you please!
I wish there was like a tab with the newest users that signed up on the instance, so I could welcome them too
Goodnight everyone! Let's hope tomorrow would be a better day! 🌃 😴 💤
I haven't done one of these with the new account...well, my name is Kara Dreamer, I'm 42 years old on paper but also a very new and naïve Seattle transwoman, and I talk about #magick, #chemistry, #Undertale, #chess, the occasional other game, and assorted other things.
Just started building my online #mastodon #theme customizer! I think I'll call it #mastotheme 😉. https://mastodon.hong.io/media/AQTX10B4SBZi4tGbWm0
Hey so, there's been a bit of a kerfuffle with Patreon lately after a terms of service change that threatens all sex workers
There's now an open letter to Patreon to please not do that http://www.openlettertopatreon.com/
The idea of folks losing their livelihood overnight for reasons I cannot see as justified is terrifying, and there's no Patreon alternative either.
The best webcomic I've ever read. Bilingual, in both 🇬🇧 🇨🇳 !
"Abandoned by their creators, scattered groups of robots search for purpose in the factory-cities of their desolate world.
Though the robots differ dramatically in function and design, they share essential traits.
Drawing power from the common grid, they never suffer scarcity.
And the concept of violence is absent from their world.
What new ways of being might such creatures create?"
My professor asked me to write my post FOA reflection. He said it shouldn't take too long, only "two or three [mumble] words". I asked him "two or three million words"? He sighed, gave a slightly terrified look, said "no, no, Shen" and walked away 😆
Just finished my Further Oral Assessment today. Look at how rad my presentation is!
