Eye contact, Cyberpunk, cleavage 

Behold! My cyberpunk novel's commission!

Ladies and gentlemen, the cover for "Pandora Downloaded"!

Congrats to Matt Zeilinger for the hard work.

Gen-Xer born in ; since kid I was a and liked and , so it was logical I'd eventually discover the genre (, , , , , ...)

Aside from that I've done and ; have gnu/#Linux on my PC and recently I discovered .

Currently a scifi novel about and and it's my life's dream to get it published!

(Also I've been recently exploring my sexuality and it turns out I'm trans :transgender: ; specifically, nonbinary :nonbinary: and probably genderfluid :QueerCat_Genderfluid: ; it's... complicated.

Perhaps another way to explain this is that I have a "femsona" and I feel more comfortable wearing her than my male-self when talking to my close friends.

BTW, I don't know if I'll get to be comfortable with using "she/her", so it's "they/them" for now.)

I'm Working on a neo-noir novel! πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

Tentative title is "Pandora Downloaded". It's about AIs, androids, a detective with a memory malfunction (brain implants screw you up) and a mysterious murder whose main culprit is a rogue android, in a "Blade Runner meets Ghost in the Shell" style.

Chapter 1 available here:

Pam to manager Creed (from The Officeβ„’):

Corporate wants you to find the difference between this picture and this picture.

Picture A: Bernie Sanders wearing mittens.

Picture B: The gnome statue that traveled all over the world.

Pam, to the TV public: They're the same picture.

Fucked up how skin is basically a barrier between an extremely wet environment and an extremely dry one

Release time!

This one adds the ability to set image descriptions (good practice for accessibility reasons, but also handy to comment on each photo), and there are translation improvements (plurals are now supported, so languages like Russian with more nuanced plurals can translate things correctly).

Thank you for the crash reports, a regression caused by a change in the last release was fixed!

Was thinking about modern patrons of the arts and someone showed me this.

this tale of redditors screwing over slimey stock shorting operations is very delightful. stocks are just gambling for the wealthy, and I am all for disrupting how they operate.

If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon I would really appreciate it if you marked your account as a bot (see superuser.com/a/1439495 for explanation of the effect).

If it's a dual purpose account (i.e. crossposting AND direct posting), then I would appreciate it if you created a separate account for the twitter crossposting and marked that as a bot account.

Crossposted tweets appear as a mess of broken links, missing threads, and the account is often unresponsive to replies.

Thanks!

you come to a gate guarded by two brothers. one is a twink and one is a femboy,

Got to S3E4, the episode where Zuko's uncle is training in his jail cell. A guard comes in and sees him clapping like a madman, but he was actually doing clapping pushups. And boy is he ripped!

Wonderful scene.

Oh, "There is no war in Ba Sing Se." Got to that episode now.

Anyway, the great wall, the cultural heritage, the dystopia, the secret police, I wouldn't be surprised to know this show is banned in China.

Oh, what do you know, it is. 😁 reddit.com/r/TheLastAirbender/

For years I avoided this series because I kept thinking it was for children.

Glad I finally swallowed my pride and gave it a watch. It's surprisingly mature for its intended audience, and yet not too mature to get a too high rating.

The best of all is that both the good and bad guys have legitimate reasons to fight. I found myself empathizing with prince Zuko more than once, and I've felt good seeing him overcome obstacles and winning a few battles.

And yeah, the series does have quite a few childish moments, but oh well. (shrug)

writing 

I decided to go for the mystery in chapter 12. Removed hints about who the mysterious hunter was. At the same time, I painted a more sinister view of the rogue android. She's super nice and loving, but also naughty. (Especially when I switch to her scene RIGHT AFTER the detectives mentioned rogue androids plotting their revenge, bwahahahaha!!!)

I think I'm going to keep playing with this ambivalence of hers until I finally reveal her true story. And then the pursuit starts, bwahahahah!

This is going to be fun. 😁

Good Morning

Starcrafts 

Damn, this silly Carbot's cartoon had more emotion and character development than the entirety of Starcraft II.

The ending had me in tears.

Seriously, if you know at least a bit of starcraft you need to watch this series. (in plural)
