Ko-fi is now following suit and utterly and completely cracking down on adult content

DO NOT say suggestive/adult things in the comment fields of your PayPal/Ko-fi transactions

DO NOT directly, publicly link your PayPal/Ko-fi identities in your adult-oriented art posts

DO NOT keep a lot of money in your PayPal account. Transfer it to your bank often, where they can't seize it and take it from you

Artists and commissioners use good judgement, it's a balancing act from both sides

Thought of the day: everyone praises that being a developer is easy cuz there's so much work around, but it's so damn hard to find something that doesn't corrupt your soul, smashes your ethics and doesn't compromise your morals. Ignoring that yeah, there's lots of jobs around 🙄

there were two wolves inside me, but using a combination of outsourcing, cis straight white male privilege, and mommy & daddy's money, i was able to get like nine wolves in there by the time i was 17

today i've got nearly two hundred wolves inside me and i only work 5 hours a month, more details in my ebook, "Don't Feed Just One," and you too can increase your wolf factor

Hi @t,
with regards to microblog.pub, is there a way to swith the existing light/dark themes from the existing UI, or does the theme in use have to be set via .scss before the installation process begins?

@halcek I believe that writing more and better correlates to how well you can focus being a writer first and an editor later. Being both at the same time imposes a huge overhead on your cognitive capacity.

After forgetting an idea, it's often the case that multiple other angles which occur to you every so often over time, seem to be that very thing, or undeniably close to what was once forgotten, even if you remember that the original was just a single, specific angle in fact.

To more, and more profoundly, means to stop consciously giving a shit if what one writes is worth writing, or how profound it is. To not architect it, but to express a flow.

After watching the documentary of XBand I can conclude that online console gaming didn't chage much since the 90's. They had problems with cheaters as well as people message bombing other users harrasing them and even quitters (people that disconnects when they are losing the game).

Definitely the problem is not the internet. It's people.

is apparently too busy right now. At least in Europe. First time seeing this. Reminds me of the early days of /birdside.

"I get a hangover from the weekend... because I do nothing. I go for walks, read a book, ask my kids whether they think there are more cats than animals... I work on old recreational maths puzzles. I wander over to my friend's house for tea to catch up on how he's doing. We check for caterpillars in his garden on the way out. I plant wildflowers in my own.

The hardest part of doing nothing is learning to live with all the people who can't."

In an system, where entity/person A has to exchange something to get something else for it from person B, there's of course never accounting for the fact that while person A might have a need for thing B, they still, in some cases, may really need thing A too, but in order to get B, A has to be exchanged, even though one might not afford to give away A, and still be in need of B anyway.

In that basic sense, the idea of a ''free'', or ''fair'' is a deceptive concept altogether.

Reading an insider article about the demise of GooglePlus and found a couple of interesting points bought up:

- infinite scrolling of content can be exhausting to the visitor, because there's never an end to the dose of content, and thus a sense of accomplishment, or completition is never mentally achieved

- important information cannot be ranked, because pre-determining content quality for the reader encourages lazy attention span and lack of the need for concentration

@scifed If I understand it correctly, OLKi is something like a academia.edu? Cool!
