Hey everyone.

I want you to know that I am aware I'm an outsider to queer spaces and culture. I didn't realize I was queer in any way until I was in my early 30s so I didn't grow up learning things.

So if you see me making a mistake, please call me on it. I won't be mad, even if it hurts. I'd rather know then not.

Also if I'm in a space and making you uncomfortable, ask me to leave. I would rather leave then make others uncomfortable in their own space.

For anyone having issues accessing certain twitter links try using this addon. Nitter has less latency and keeps content that twitter might censor. This addon automatically redirects you to the nitter link for any twitter pages you open.

LB: for context,

Nitter is a self-hostable server-side frontend for Twitter, so you can avoid having to run scripts in your browser doing who knows what.

Is there an easy way to tell how powerful a PSU I need, if I'm buying a new one for an existing PC? Assuming I don't have a killowatt or something like that.

The second book launch party for ally happens in 40 minutes. Come for the reading and LaTeX nonsense, stay for the calling Maddy a nerd \o/ ally.id/book/launch

So computer is not turning on when I push the power button, then turning on several minutes later.

Time for a new power supply I think? Any suggestions on what will last a long time? This one was a Corsair GS600.

@chr I've been doing a thing where I find dragon art for @DialMforMara to enjoy, would you like me to start tagging you in on that? Its mostly old Dragon Magazine covers from the 80s, so very much in that old school majestic, western dragon style

Everyone makes mistakes, but it takes true strength to admit when you're wrong. Doubling down is for those who are afraid to face the consequences of their actions and let themselves get consumed by the fear.

Face that fear head-on. Do better. And maybe, just maybe, you'll find you don't have to post on r/incel and 4chan as much anymore because you'll actually have a life worth living.

I know it's nothing new but it still makes me giggle every time I go through that little mental process of "wait, who the fuck is [display name I don't recognize]? Did someone I follow boost them? OH! It's [person I've been following for 8 months who likes to change their display name to silly jokes every couple weeks]."

Ok, this is a bit of a walk. Bear with me.

So, today filk mostly means taking a popular song and adding parody lyrics, but back in they day it was folk songs, but written about nerd things, fantasy novels, or science fiction, or whatnot. Some of the songs could be funny, but a *lot* of them were plenty dark. You know, just like folk music.

Now, due to a comment @DialMforMara made while talking about Sonic comics of all things, wouldn't Furry Filk work really well? Just a fox and a acoustic guitar singing a soft song to other animals? Is this a thing yet?

Heh, since everyone needs a little pick me up: Two of the astronauts on the SpaceX rocket are named Bob and Doug.
