Been trying out the #matrix client #nheko the last few days after they updated to 0.6. The UI is a step up from the current riot UI and its a lot lighter weight because it uses Qt instead of electron. It seems like its a lot more stable now than the previous 0.5 release I tried out a little while ago, It hasn't crashed on me once in the last few days of use.

So if you're not using matrix because of riots UI maybe give nheko a try

I wrote a thing today

archiveofourown.org/works/1607

Some of what I expect from the aftermath of Third Ravnica Block, and a follow-up to that fic I'm never motivated enough to finish.

Bit dark, but also hopefully some cute. #mtg #fanfiction #amwriting

New video from a cool series about finding #dissent in the British Museum collection. This one’s about clothing; it focuses on the backlash against Eurocentrism in precolonial Madagascar (but it’s also got a pussyhat!)

They just don't make magic rope like they used to…

“If it will bear my weight,” grunted Conan, cleansing his sword on the grass.
“It will bear thrice my own,” answered Taurus. “It was woven from the tresses of dead women, which I took from their tombs at midnight, and steeped in the deadly wine of the upas tree, to give it strength.”

I gripped my sword, streaks of sweat chilling my lower back and aching, trembling arms. The barbarian proclaimed the Eldritch Beast dead, but she'd been wrong prior so I waited until verification from the Cleric was uttered. I promptly crumpled to me knees, sword clattering loudly on the stone floor.

When I had declared, over breakfast, that today would be an adventure, I had anticipated a long day of answering angry e-mails. NOT THIS.

This is memory usage for my instance. Is this typical to yours as well #mastoadmins? #mastodonadmins #mastodon Notice 9/2 when 2.5.0 was released and installed. Not sure if there is a memory issue or just more RAM being used with more users.

Kinda annoying how being more media literate than I was 10 years ago ruins some stuff. But part of that might be down to the political climate changing, as fascism is no longer a fringe movement but a proper (albeit still small) threat. So a reading of a text 10 years later is kinda... Makes me a bit uncomfortable because the parallels in it rewrite the past in some ways, and in others pave the way for fashy stuff like attack on titan ("similarities r coincidence" my arse)

Does anyone have a good alternative to DownThemAll! now that it doesn't work anymore? I want to say, download every link with *.pdf in it on a page to a set folder.

I'm doing a 🚨🚨free book giveaway🚨🚨to clear out my apartment!! I posted them all as a Twitter thread because it was easier that way.

DM me there or on here if you want any of these books. They're free, no strings attached, but if shipping is gonna be >$5 I'll ask for a few bucks if you can afford it.

Finally have my apartment listed looking for a roomate. I've gotten TWO inquiries within the first HOUR. Seems $650 + utilities is a good price for a 1 minute walk from a 95 stop in Burnaby? (Still looking so if you want to live with me, let me know. No pets even though I'm the only person in my building to follow that rule)

the website seems to have a memory leak or something. what programs do y'all use to read masto on computers

Ok, it DOES have RSS feeds, they just aren't accessible from each comic page

Ok, why does anyone use Webtoons? The UI is worse then Keepsace was in 2002 and it doesn't give you RSS feeds.
