Something to think about.

Shout out to all the folks that donated some funds when I went away for a couple of days.

I'm not really ready to go into what all is going down in my life right now, but know every single dollar really helps right now.

These random kindnesses really keep me going. You have no idea how it helps to motivate even in the dark times.

I added a twitter widget and .ics calendar file parsing to the main arch women website :D


You can see it live at

There is a bug with the calendar events display that is happening on production but not development I have to figure out. the br's should be rendered html and not escaped, but I'm 99% of the way done.
