This is one MAJOR tantrum he is having now, 2 comments on Twitter that they flagged up as being not accurate and he throws a total wobbly.

Which tabletop gaming item do you wish you had never given away?
I had to move in a short period of time, and had to leave behind close to a third of my collection. Most of those were Palladium books and esoteric GURPS books that I hadn't looked at in forever, but sometimes, I go to find a reference, and only then realize that it was in those stacks.
I also got rid of the SAGA system games (Dragonlance/Marvel Super Heroes). I had copies of the book for the Marvel system, but not the cards. Both of those have been hard to come by in good condition.
On the boardgame side, I've given away a lot of boardgames recently to my local library because of space concerns. But I haven't had anyone to play them with for a while- if I start to play again, I'm sure I'll miss something there, but I've been pretty methodical in the ones that I've given away, so I hope not.

So I'm ok with staying at home, but I still need interaction.
I am sooooo glad I started a Discord server. I've got heralds from as far as Drachenwald and Lochac. We could stand to get a few more. We're discussing everything from heraldry (duh), scribal arts, ongoing projects, games, food/drink, peerage/award-related topics, politics, a little bit of textile arts (could use more!), and everything in between. We have zerged commentary and held online classes.
It's been nice. And now I feel like I know more of these folks a bit better. These nerds are my people.

Which games that you liked when you were first exposed to them do you feel less enthused about now? Which games that you disliked when you were first exposed to them do you feel more enthusiastic about now? What changed your mind?
When I first played Cards against Humanity and others like it, I liked the social experience. But being the non-social person that I am, I like to interact with the rules more than just the social aspects, so I find that it now is more of a job to play than an enjoyable diversion.
I have fond memories of D&D, but left it behind a while ago. So when the idea of OSR games came about, I was less than enthusiastic about them. Kevin Crawford single-handedly changed my mind, and made me look at OSR as it is- bring older sensibilities in gaming back to the fore but with the benefit of newer design concepts.

I have real mixed feelings about this - I mean, seriously, overall, the US private sector has a really shitty track record when it comes to keeping humans safe. For so many reasons, I wish absolute safety and success, but frankly, I'm worried about this.

As a favor to me, would you vote for her? (It's not her bestest work, she could really the boost right now, because, you know, the best artists are insecure as fuck.)
Here's a better example of her work.
So, yes, I'm likely to repeat this message daily until the voting closes. Just because I care

Right now I'm making some patriotic-themed designs for Independence Day, so I created a blog post with photos of these other new fabrics. Please let me know if you especially like any of them an I'll move those to the head of the line.
Blog post is here: https://shuttersparks.net/new-mask-fabrics/
Available masks are here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254577982386
These look like ordinary masks but deliver 97 to 98 percent filtration efficiency on particles down to 10 nanometers. So, roughly twice as effective as a N95 mask and on particles smaller than the NIOSH standard calls for.
Details and a link to the science behind it are in a blog post here:
Masks are available here:
High-perf masks are indicated by "HP" in the style name. Quantities are limited by how fast I can make them.

So here is the offering from make it click on social media basics
Pretty much highlights the issues here, people are simply NOT given a choice, however. They can't ask to learn how to use the fediverse if they don't know about it, and people who are teaching are not willing to just accept there are alternatives and teach those alternatives, rather than trying to get them to sign up to say facebook anyway.
What can we do to change things?, I can't do it on my own, but if we can create the resources, then that would be a start.
I have made a few posts here
if it helps anyone write a tutorial for them, or can help me write this.
