Re: DIY: Browser based services

tldr i just use them for anything i don't happen to already have a software to do. off of the top of my head, I would usually use online services for pdf editing (merging and marking them up). I also use them for simple word processing things like lipsum generation (https://lipsum.com) and idk, codi...

Re: fiber arts & crafts!

I love needlework! Partly because that name just sounds cool (bladework, metalwork, etc etc just sound badass. And I've always been partial to video game characters with unorthodox stabby objects), but also because I love creating things. I love mending, love the idea of caring for something so much...

Re: thoughts on video game piracy?

Yeah!! It's really frustrating to see how some videogame companies are taking advantage of the DLC/free updates features to actually ship out incomplete games at full retail price, and then fixing them up/adding content as they go. Nintendo has been very bad about this lately, so much that in the f...

you can mute channels and castegories and there's a separate checkbox somewhere that hides muted channels.
