Hey, Mastofriends, I'd like some help/feedback on a thing.

I'm 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.

Linked below is my current list. Thoughts?

legitimately, sincerely, fuck this so fucking hard. AAA companies will pull this shit and then DMCA/sue/attack any hackers working on actual methods of getting old ROMs to work. This is insult to injury.

@polymerwitch totally. it isn't free though. it isn't a "why aren't we just doing this with our existing resources" thing. it takes additional resources to do this, whether that's transportation or time to book-keep or extra stuff to replace the broken/in-use stuff

To be accusatory, it suggests overwork is not just in support of the current systems, but a method of social control in an of itself.

The older I get the more I am convinced that all forms of progress are only possible when we have free time. That is, when we are able to spend effort on things not essential to our immediate survival. We need to have spare resources to be able to risk spending them on something uncertain.

The main indicator of this to me is how the more pressure people are under to work just to survive, the less able they are to devote their energies to social or personal improvement.

I need to talk to someone with formal textiles experience about how to properly fit out a general purpose textiles workshop. Cutting table, sewing machine, overlocker, couple of work tables, etc. Someone who can recommend working area sizes and makes/models of equipment to go for or avoid, preferable.

If my sums are right, I can likely make 5 extra baskets for my chest freezer from one 96x48" sheet of 1" weld mesh. Maybe even 6, which would max it out.
Including shipping, looks like that's £54 in metal, £5 in white spray enamel.

A single extra basket from the spares supplier is £30 and there don't seem to be any correctly sized aftermarket alternatives.

Anyone else interested in freezer modding?
