One time travel story approach is to go back in time to correct a cataclysmic event. When it works, things are better in the future. There can be unintended side effects. For instance, a pandemic. The coronavirus (as bad as it is) could be much less worse than what happened before the intervention from the future. In a novel. Just a thought starter.

Just as an aside, is there a way to export Mastodon bookmarks? 🙂

I've been working really hard the past couple of weeks building a new stats system for my web game Improbable Island.

It's a text adventure at improbableisland.com, there's a lively roleplaying community, player-owned places (with a programming engine!), hundreds of pages of story and no ads/tracking/nastystuff. We've had problems getting new players 'cause the places we used to advertise are all going offline, so if y'all could help me out with a boost that'd be much appreciated

Annoying when the price is in the nav of open source software, and the site is mostly a sales pitch.
Yes, it's open source. Yes, it can be installed to a server. But it's so much better to pay for it every month.
It's bad marketing.
Better to push the quality of the product and the ease of use, but if you don't want to be bothered, we'll help for just a little bit each month. Revive Adserver does a good job of that. I may be using them on a project (hopefully sooner rather than later).

Over an hour of troubleshooting to discover I put an extra dash in a front matter delimiter. 😂

I'm at that point in my career where I've taken a job that isn't anywhere near software development, because after almost 2 years of trying to get back into the game, I've been hearing the exact same thing from the exact same types of white people.

So now comes the critical juncture: I can either bust my ass harder than ever to get back into the industry (which is gonna require little to no sleep and potentially jeopardizing my health): or, stay in Menial Job Limbo and accept the fact that white people dont want blacks in their industry.

TIL that "bok choy" is a Klingon phrase that means cabbage.
The k is heavily emphasized.
Undoubtedly it was served in the tiny Klingon restaurant on the promenade in DS9.

Working with data in Jekyll is awesome! Good docs. Great tuts.

TIL... Turning on the VM feature in Windows 10 can freeze the desktop. The VM feature is essential for WSL 2.

isn't it wild that the expression "like taking candy from a baby" means "really easy thing" and not "really shitty thing to do"
