Over the span of a year, with Ethan’s editorial input, I rebuilt the book layout from TXT sources in , and recreated all diagrams from scratch using , and . It turned out great!

I don’t understand how COVID is spiking again after we’ve tried everything from pretending it’s over to pretending it never happened


Excellent video on time dilation, contraction, reference frames and more by David Butler. Super helpful visuals and the equations are shown.

Forget Harvest Moon... How about Harvest ON THE Moon. 😅 👩‍🌾

Yep, I've decided. I'll make a Farmer Titan who only levels through the XP of resource collecting.

That would be a good use for a Titan. They have the big arms for it.

I'm sad about losing planetary resources. These resources have a poignant history with since Destiny 1.

Sometimes when tired, it was fun to just walk around, take in the sights and appreciate the world built, and collect materials like picking berries. I imagined that I was helping the Tower economy.

Now it's immersion breaking XP+glimmer. 😦

Argh. Too bad. I'll do it anyway because it's just fun. You can't take away my fantasies!

Dear reporters, news people, etc.,

The reason you're not getting any reach on Masto is because you rarely interact. You just come here, post your news article, and don't engage with the community.

You will never get reach if you don't interact with people. This is not Twitter. This is not Facebook. If you want this platform to work for you, you have to become a part of the community, not just shout at us and leave. Forget everything you learned in the walled corporate digital gardens.

'Maybe there is an easier way to accomplish what you are asking.'

'Have you tried IlluminationLibrary'

'Just use flashlights. Light bulbs are absurdly inefficient.'

'I work during the day so I don't need to change bulbs. Have you tried that?'

Q: “How many devs on a message board does it take to screw in a light bulb?”

A: “Why are you trying to do that?”

we were so worried about "malware" (software that deliberately spreads and causes harm) that we forgot to protect against "mallware" (software that transforms every single computing experience into a shopping mall) and it took over the world oops

Let's see what the pocket sized internet is doing

Can civilians go to space yet?

Sure, I'd throw up into my helmet the whole time, but wow pretty blue ball dot Earth that brings all the perspectives!

I went to my computer for something that I forgot. Mom started chatting, I chatted with a friend, another friend started an interesting Stargoid battle stream on my Discord server, I placed an order for new bathroom towels...

Then I remembered I came to the computer to reboot my NAS.

Running a is expensive busy work!
