@discpod So, listening to the discussion in the latest episode about Grace being the Discworld virgin, I had the thought of her being the Discworld maiden, instead. But then I realized that would imply that someone would be the Discworld mother, and the Discworld... er... Granny Weatherwax. Also the fact that only really works for a trio, not a quartet. >_> <_<
@irisjaycomics If you're interested still, the random print on demand company I ended up getting my custom purse design made by apparently has shopify integration, and doesn't have its own store front for direct sale of uploaded designs. I don't know how the shopify integration works, since I was just using it for a one-off, but something like that might be worth looking into, if you're willing to deal with the drop shipping ecosystem.
@BestGirlGrace Consent Bone is my new sex-positive death metal band's name.
@trysdyn What, you've never thought of getting an outfit made which is well-polished metallic latex with a few inserts to make it look like armor, without it actually being the least bit rigid?
Hmm, it has just come to my attention that a website I hosted for a friend hasn't worked for over a year and a half, because the shared host it was on upgraded from a version of PHP which has been EOL since the last ice age, and the gallery script it's built on can't run on newer versions. I am sorely tempted to do something stupid and set up a heavily locked down docker container with the old version of PHP it needs, so I can get it working again.
@fluxom_alt It does, yeah. That's what most of my favorite HFY stories revolve around. "These humans are crazy! They come from a planet full of horrifically hostile life, yet they'll pack bond with anything! That one just picked me up, kissed me on the proboscis, and called me adorable!"
It's rare I get to post acab and mock cis-normalization talking points at the same time.
@trysdyn That's the one based on the black and white American flag meaning, "We will not surrender or accept surrender, you must kill us all or die," right?
@Nikon Well, congratulations!
@trysdyn Well, precognition *is* a demonstrated power of the Millennium Puzzle. Admittedly, it was only demonstrated in sensing danger, but that just means that we'd have to make this part of the network of royalty-based faster than light communication.
@trysdyn Apple is an isekai. Cupertino is the world they're from.
long ruminating on a memory of how I accidentally temporarily became a 3rd grader philosopher
@trysdyn Well, I can confirm that I got basically the same answer to that from my public school fourth grade teacher. Except with the addition that it was Satan putting thoughts like that in my head. So *shrug*
@trysdyn If you're ambidextrous, does that mean that you just have two switch hands?
Whee, my instance just temporarily died due to running out of disk space, because the command to automatically clean up remote media has changed twice since I set up the cron job for it, and despite the fact that the command I was running hasn't worked since 2018, it hadn't been generating any errors in the log. :/ Also, I'm a little impressed that I went two and a half years on a 40GB disk without cleaning up, and only now ran out of space.
@hierarchon Keepass2Android. Its OTP support is good enough, it doesn't require anything but the device itself to work, and it works with my inputstick so I can press a button and have it automatically type the codes. (Also, it's a full password manager, which is handy)
@trysdyn Sounds like decent GMing to me. Nothing spoils a good dramatic moment quite like dice deciding that something didn't work that should have. Though, with the right group, "yes, and"ing failed rolls can be a lot of fun.
Since I'm following @BestGirlGrace on here, this particular line of Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song doesn't feel particularly surprising. (Flagged as sensitive because it's a potential spoiler for said anime. Also, people should watch it, it's a really good show.)
is this defenestration?
@deejvalen I'm pretty sure that would be refenestration.
