Hate when Q&A guests don't bring any passion for their project to the table. It leads to things like running out of questions, and copping out of questions designed to make you think. Really limits the energy the session can have, which makes for less fun for the folks asking questions.
If you're doing a Q&A for your project, PLEASE feel free to GUSH about your answers.
I totally forgot to mention that folks can support development of LaraComic with monetary donations, if they want and are able! Just added a list of ways to contribute to the GitHub Sponsor button, but thought I'd list them here, too:

Hey folks! You may have seen this already, but I've fixed the link, and I'd still like some help/feedback on the thing.
I'm (still) building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.

I need to work on work stuff.
I need to work on Microbox.
I need to work on Calends.
I need to work on self care.
I need to be able to focus to do any of those.
I can't focus, today. My grandmother passed this morning, and I'm not sure I'll be able to make the funeral. Already missed one grandmother's funeral because I was out to sea at the time, so I'd really like to not miss any others. But since my "great state" has garnished my income, I'm pretty broke.
Anyone out there remember ReBoot? The original, not the current retry.
I wanna be able to RP it. That means https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/techsupportcentral/hardboot-a-d20-rpg needs to get funded successfully.
I'm sad because it really looks like it won't.
The final days to #BundleUp4Whitney are here, so jump on it while you still can! https://itch.io/b/396/thoughty-bundle-up-for-whitney-delaglio Support a designer & artist in need and get some rad games to play, too! The bundle has been pretty successful so far, so I'd like a few good days to close it out! Share too!
Five or So Questions on Dust Wardens
PSA and reminder:
The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Stop using them.
Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.
"But it's tied to darkness being scary and light being friendly!"
So is racism.
"You're just virtue signaling!"
I'm repeating what Black folks (and even some PoCs) have said multiple times already, about _their own lives_.

I know I'm not here as much as I used to be. I'm not here as much as I'd _like_ to be. But I found a really cool thing, and I wanted to share it with you:
This seems to be especially useful for folks living between the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars, though it's also super cool for folks who just really like calendars. I happen to be one of the latter. More on that elsewhere.

Making sure my war game is anti-fascist Show more
So I'm making a game about crewing an allied tank in an alt-history WW2 to blow up Nazis. What could be more anti-fascist than that? Lots of stuff, it turns out. The problem is that Nazis aren't the only fascists, and my game does some things that potentially support fascist modes of thought.
I've been promising it for a while, and I've done an update to Script Change! https://briecs.itch.io/script-change Please check it out!
