I totally forgot to mention that folks can support development of LaraComic with monetary donations, if they want and are able! Just added a list of ways to contribute to the GitHub Sponsor button, but thought I'd list them here, too:

Hey folks! You may have seen this already, but I've fixed the link, and I'd still like some help/feedback on the thing.
I'm (still) building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.
I need to work on work stuff.
I need to work on Microbox.
I need to work on Calends.
I need to work on self care.
I need to be able to focus to do any of those.
I can't focus, today. My grandmother passed this morning, and I'm not sure I'll be able to make the funeral. Already missed one grandmother's funeral because I was out to sea at the time, so I'd really like to not miss any others. But since my "great state" has garnished my income, I'm pretty broke.
Anyone out there remember ReBoot? The original, not the current retry.
I wanna be able to RP it. That means https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/techsupportcentral/hardboot-a-d20-rpg needs to get funded successfully.
I'm sad because it really looks like it won't.
#TIL there is an open source project similar to #WolframAlpha, called #SymPyGamma
The final days to #BundleUp4Whitney are here, so jump on it while you still can! https://itch.io/b/396/thoughty-bundle-up-for-whitney-delaglio Support a designer & artist in need and get some rad games to play, too! The bundle has been pretty successful so far, so I'd like a few good days to close it out! Share too!
I find myself wondering how late I am to the conversation about turning black friday into Black friday... As in, it's not about sales, but about celebrating Black folk. The corporate machines will still grind out their "sales", dropping things to nearly-affordable prices from whatever insane amounts they raised them to ahead of November, but we could make today about something, if we wanted to.
I'm white as paper, so this isn't my conversation to have. But I'm curious.
It is proven! I am danhunsaker on Keybase: https://keybase.io/danhunsaker/sigchain#09034c3cdb07e5288869cecd62cfd6eb07e173a9ab803b159406d92f3171243b0f
PSA and reminder:
The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Stop using them.
Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.
"But it's tied to darkness being scary and light being friendly!"
So is racism.
"You're just virtue signaling!"
I'm repeating what Black folks (and even some PoCs) have said multiple times already, about _their own lives_.

282 days and counting. Plenty of ups and downs, some of them from guarding my heart too strongly. But things are still decent, if not as wonderful as they once were. Really want this one to last - I mean, I want them _all_ to last, but this one has already been through a lot. The effort to overcome my poor habits and thrive in this will be well worth it.
Sorry for the delay in updates. Masto's been harder to use for a long while than it once was, for purely personal reasons.
@Sylvhem Hm, not sure for the rest of your followers but I view promo posts from sex workers in the same way as illustrators promoting commissions or crafters promoting their jewelry Etsy store. And I don't mind them at all.
