I've lost a few Patreons in the last couple of months. I get it, money flow is turbulent for a lot of people.
If you're in a position where you can support and you'd like to get some pretty desktop backgrounds, mandala art tutorials, colouring pages, and even signed original art, I'd appreciate it. <3
Question anyone good with ancestry research? I need help with some research. I have traced my line of Parkers, Alston, and Royer's all the way back to the 1300's however I am stuck with two spots. First would be my Great Grandmother she died when my Grandpa was 3 he knows nothing of her not even her Maiden name and all my research has showed she magically appeared when she got married with no reference to who she was. Secondly I am stuck in Czechoslovakia in 1800's on my othet side. Thoughts?

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but my friends and I have a channel where we play Garry's mod and talk about Game of Thrones.
I don't know how much fun it is to watch, but it's just a channel where we focus on having a laugh and less about the more organised parts of YouTube.
YouTube vs PeerTube Show more
So I decided to try an experiment with today's video and upload a video in my screen's native resolution of 1440x900, a 16:10 aspect ratio.
Whereas both platforms support the 16:10 aspect ratio, YouTube insists on stuffing it into it's 720p re-encoded resolution making it look sub-par to its #PeerTube counterpart.
Basically, PeerTube seems to have better support for slightly odd resolutions. A small thing but interesting nevertheless.

In order to have a government we can trust (to do those big things and act in our interest) we need democracy. Political life was democratised a long time about but economics never was. If we democratise finance and work then I think much of the antagonism between the individual and the state disappears.
Of course we need bottom-up democracy for this to have any meaning. The more remote power becomes the less we can and should trust it.
