Currently, all my ongoing stories/series are to be considered "on hiatus" until further notice in favor of focusing on finishing The Shadow's trilogy.

Furthermore, each time, you have to decide between the standard "good" & "evil" teams, with each side helping you in different ways across different timelines.

And all the while, you're fighting another trans magical girl that is hostile to you because she was originally internalizing transphobia and no matter how hard you try, you can't change the initial fight that causes her to become your enemy in the first place.

Came up with a very existential and very tragic story this morning. We call it "The 501st Timeline" and well...

Imagine being a trans magical girl that discovers you have to transition in the same direction multiple times, with varying degrees of success as you try to use your knowledge of past loops to find the one set of decisions that will lead to your escaping the entire thing.

You not only have to learn to survive on your own in some timelines, but also endure grueling and painful trials.

So uh, heeey hi. I've decided to make Disaster Ever After free to read for the time being! Its all totally caught up to within the last chapter and is a presently still being written story, so its not done yet! Sorry!

If you don't know, Disaster Ever After is a silly supernatural romance about Ramira, a Mexican American born servant girl turned vampire clan leader?? Featuring queer (adult!) love, pansexuality, nonbinary characters, polyamory, immigration, women in charge, overcoming addiction, among other things and you can find it here:

We made a script a couple weeks ago that tracks CPU temperatures. (see here: octodon.social/@KitsuneAlicia/ )

Today, we decided to expand upon it just a bit and add some more fine-tuned control, as well as more detailed comments on what does what.

And now, we're sharing it in case others find it useful:

Free or paid -- a lot of people are going through tough times right now and if buying your stuff will help you, don't be afraid to share it!

We added two things from the original:

1. The way the temperature is retrieved was given an extra step to first retrieve the first few lines of the sensor module before looking for the actual sensor itself.

This ensures that it can be used with sensor modules that use the generic temp1/temp2/temp3 labels.

2. When parsing the actual temperature, it now does a secondary check on the second digit. It previously only used the first digit.

It's currently set up to alert at 85 degrees or higher instead of 80 degrees, partly because with Warframe on our laptop, it's really easy to get up in the low 80s just sitting in the orbiter, so this cuts down on the notification spam. XD

Just updated and basically doubled the length of the prologue. Now you can enjoy the full premise of the story.

Lilith (formerly Laura) here. Just as Alicia has as her pet project, I needed to make one of my own. I'm not gonna bother going into any details. I'll let the story explain itself.

So without further ado, here's the intro to...

Lilith's Ascension to the Throne

We have an idea for how to get around the problem by just not syncing the items in question, but it's gonna take quite a bit of doing to implement and we're too tired to do it atm. The move and amount of debugging we did already was exhausting.

We'll fix it properly when we get the chance, but at least it won't hurt anyone in the meantime.

And hot on the tail of our switch to Codeberg comes a rather critical update to .

It contains a fix for the Steam module that was deleting caches during installation instead of making a backup like it's supposed to, as well as a mitigation change for a bug that occurs when the ramdisk doesn't have enough space to sync.

Shader-RAM v0.4.6 can be found on the Releases page here:
codeberg.org/Yowlen/shader-ram

We already have transferred and have the last release we made on GitHub (v0.4.5) re-released on Codeberg.

It takes systemic methods to fight the systemic oppression of marginalized groups, so our moderation policies plan to reflect that.

Not only will we be moderating the apps, but we'll encourage the app developers themselves to moderate as well.

Likewise, we'll also encourage the end users to be more active in this role.

We wanna build a community for everyone that believes in a diverse coexistence and actively enforces it by working together to exclude bigotry and hatred.

Show thread

We want to create a more user-friendly app store than any of the currently-available options.

And to us, that means being inclusive of everyone that also seeks to be inclusive, while being exclusive of those that seek to be exclusive.

And more than that, it means we need to take an active role on all levels in that regard, not just the end user level.

Worth noting that the goal of this project has other objectives besides being more active against bigotry.

We plan to make this stuff more accessible. Specifically, one example is how third party repos are rarely used atm. We wanna look into ways to make them easier for the average user to set up.

We wanna make it much easier for people to organize and collectivize in the mobile world, regardless of how knowledgeable they are with tech.

Still looking for coders -- especially coders of marginalized groups -- to help us build an alternative to that actively works to cast out all bigotry instead of drawing the line at blatant promotion.

Currently, we're looking for people that are able to code for the Android app, though later, we'll be looking for people capable of coding for a repo and web server, as well as a build server even later on.

If you're willing and able to contribute, hit us up in DMs. We could use the help.

In other news, we managed to write nearly 2,000 words for The Shadow's Torment yesterday, bringing the total to almost 13,000, so that's coming along nicely.
