Alright, let's do this... #introductions
Hi! I'm Alahmnat. I'm a mid-30s web developer, aspiring game designer, and D'ni historian. I make no apologies for my bad/dad jokes and puns. Also I'm an arctic fox :)
My pronouns are they/them, but I won't be mad if you use he/him.
cis ppl will use "google it" as a verb and then throw an absolute tantrum about how they/them can't be used out of its standard usage in the same sentence without a hint of irony

Also Y'ALL, this ART. OMG. It's so good! It makes me so happy.
Well, I sorta had to muck with the art (from the wonderful CurioDraco on twitter) a bit, but I got my custom face mask design fitted to Vistaprint's template. I needed to order a new one since the one I originally got from Redbubble last year has lost a lot of its elasticity and didn't really fit very well in the first place. Vistaprint's looks more face-fitting, so hopefully it'll work better.
The only fossil I'm missing on my new #ACNH island is a deinonychus tail and I'm willing to pay someone for a spare at this point...
Upcoming Instagram changes warn users to accept activity tracking to "Help keep Instagram free of charge" 🙄 #deleteInstagram
Delete Chrome. Now.
Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.
If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
I made an #ACNH version of one of Fangamer's #Myst t-shirts (the Myst Arcana one). It took some fiddling to get it scaled down enough to fit in the available space.
(Here's the original, how'd I do? https://www.fangamer.com/collections/myst/products/myst-arcana-shirt)
When it was found that any given time and place could only be visited by a time machine once, "first events" became expensive collectibles.
Premieres, product launches - anything that let a billionaire say "I was there, the first time".
Until one went to see the first time trip.

Is this what people who started on BBSes feel like whenever someone on Twitter asks what a forum is?
