I sent business@emby.media a sternly worded email about their licensing bait-and-switch. When I became a Lifetime Emby Premiere subscriber in early 2016, I did so to support an amazing and useful open-source project.

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

The fascination I have for spiders helps override my very real and previously very intense phobia of them. Now I have to decide if the same can be said of centipedes.

If I do this, my household will consist of hundreds of plants (around 225 species/hybrids), 3 humans, 1 dog, 4 cats, 1 fish, a few shrimp, a few snails, 8 tarantulas, 1 ant colony (1 queen, 3 workers, and some brood), and 1 "nasty" centipede.

I have this awesome friend who volunteers at an animal rescue and ends up fostering a lot of the exotics that end up getting surrendered or confiscated until he can find them a good, permanent home. I actually got my very first tarantula, a mature male Goliath Birdeater, through him.

He's trying to talk me into adopting a Scolopendra subspinipes that he describes as "nasty". We no longer live anywhere near one another so he's looking into shipping it (and I've offered to reimburse him).

@rubah
Picked you up from the NWA list on Trunk! Been in Bentonville for about 16 months now though I also previously lived in Fayetteville for a year (19 years ago, lol). Grew up elsewhere in the Natural State.

Tusky installs are through the roof again, I guess thats because of the tumblr thing

We looked at the exhibitor/vendor list for the show we planned on going to mid-month. It was really disappointing. We're used to going to shows with 60+ vendors covering a wide variety of animals and products. This one will have 9 and most of those are just for ball pythons and geckos. Since none of them will have tarantulas we canceled our trip and decided to place an online order with palpfrictiontarantulas.com.
