Inspired by the likes of @HexDSL and @ChrisWere I decided to relaunch my blog. It's just my own take on tech I get to play with, and conversations about tech I like to have.

advice req, patreon-type things
so a couple people have been requesting that I set up some kind of a payment thing like patreon. earning from anything I do would obviously be super useful especially as I decrease my hours to spend more time on leftist vlogs and music videos and stuff that is generally at least less horribly corporate than my current day job

Masto mods and admins, please open - new anti-spam tool
Say hello to Ivory, a new anti-spam tool for Mastodon. I've been working on this under wraps for the masto.tech mod team this weekend. This can auto-handle reports for you.
