Hey guys, I'm Preston. I joined Merveilles in 2013 after interviewing Alice on a podcast I was doing in High School. Shortly after I packed my bags and headed to Tokyo to live with another member I met here and stayed for a year and a half. It was one of the best years of my life and I owe it to this community. I left Merveilles in 2017 due to how hectic my life had become. I consider myself a programmer, but I am also extremely ADHD so I never finish anything. Nice to meet you

Sometimes life is fleeting.
Time flows differently at scales big and small.

Found both a bee and a damselfly that had used their allotment of time in this passing through.

Cabal, the open-source & p2p group chat I've worked on with friends, is in a quadratic funding pilot experiment run by Open Collective!

What that means for us, as an example: for every 10 USD donated, we get a total of 83 USD

I'm finally merging my content and time tracker statistics. When something is tracked but doesn't have content, then it'll generate a page with simple stats about the project.

My microsite generator Chīsai now has a super cute mascot thanks to the wonderful Chlowski! Look at him jumping around with all his equipment! :tealheart:

Making a new handle out of white oak for a small ball peen hammer that's gonna go in my tool chest

@Preston On that note, would anyone have any suggestions on how to store an offline password manager? Is it possible to put it on an encrpyted USB? Should I have multiple copies of these same USB?

Oh right, the whole fiasco with fastly today reminded me to export my bitwarden database and switch to an offline password manager. It's a single point of failure right now that would literally ruin my life if it became compromised.
