Tentative title is "Pandora Downloaded". It's about AIs, androids, a detective with a memory malfunction (brain implants screw you up) and a mysterious murder whose main culprit is a rogue android, in a "Blade Runner meets Ghost in the Shell" style.

Chapter 1 available here:

I did it!!! :blobcheer: Well, not exactly. It's a similar technique which I call "rapid bomb jumping". It starts with ONE double bomb jump but you keep the rythm with the subsequent single bomb jumps so you do climb up faster than by normal bomb jumping. It got me past that difficult spot :)

Here's a trick I learned if you want to make text readable on an image but only have access to paint (or just want to do it quickly): Place the text on the image in black, then place the exact same text in white overlapping but slightly oblique to the black text. Easy drop shadow!

God, why does double-bomb jumping have to be so damn difficult? :blobugh:

"Boss makes a dollar
I make a dime
That was a rhyme for a simpler time
Boss makes a billion
I make jack
So that's why I strike to seize the means back"

Where I come from, we always had a term for "White boomers who sold their souls to a corpocratic state and adopted regressive politics and allowed america to slide into a post-industrial hellscape"

Yuppies. Throw that at your next "OK Boomer" moment. "Fukkin Yuppie". They remember that word.

Facebook has recently admitted that its greatest threat, looking to the future, is federated platforms.

Many federating platforms (like PeerTube, a video sharing software, or WriteFreely, a blogging software) are springing up around the federating system.

Capitalist websites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are getting progressively worse in how they act, in their quest for profits.

Meanwhile, the fediverse is only getting stronger, powered by money through voluntary donations and the hard work of thousands of admins.

Federation is a positive path forward for the future of the internet, has liberated people and allowed them to form regenerative communities, and is helping to educate people about alternative ideas and methods to those promoted by capitalist business.

It's really encouraging to see the fediverse doing so well.

Don't just teach your students to read.
• Teach them to question what they read, what they study.
• Teach them to doubt.
• Teach them to think.
• Teach them to make mistakes and learn from them.
• Teach them how to understand something.
• Teach them how to teach others.

"I wish for a family."

"Don't you already have one?" asked the genie.

"I wouldn't mind a better one..."

"Do you wish for your current family to be..." the genie made a grim gesture.

"No! No I mean... I guess I like them but I have to be someone very specific for them."


With a solemn magical nod, the means of a new family appeared in my hands.

"A laptop?"

"With unlimited internet access and airline miles."
