5 More days to support "The Highwayman" Kickstarter!

As the weather turns cooler and spooky season begins, wouldn't you like to read a romantic, gothic poem from 1904, illustrated with beautiful drawings by @adalheidis ?

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maelissfont/the-highwayman-a-graphic-adaptation

There are digital copies for about $10, as well as books, and signed copies -- but only if the project is funded soon.

Please boost for reach! :boost_requested:

But look, the weather is strange these days and the flowers are confused, a field of poppies at the end of September. Today felt like Indian Summer anyway.

sci-fi as it relates to the modern world 

Hey, remember when cyberpunk stories treated it like a nightmare scenario that big corporations know everything about you, including your physical location?

Heck, remember when George Orwell described (more than seventy years ago!) a future where electronic devices could be turned down, but never turned off in a way that'd stop them from listening in on your conversations?

And how that used to be something we should be at least concerned about?

Fun.

Fun fact: GBP (British Pound) has fallen. £1 = $1.07 today. Was about 1.17 last week.

Also fun fact: EUR has parity with USD.

My laptops on minifree.org are sold in GBP (£), so they're cheaper now, for foreign customers, due to weaker £ value on currency exchange.

If a laptop would have cost you $400 US last week, it will cost you about $365 now, due to exchange rate difference.

OK this is pretty cool: built-in translation is coming to Mastodon, funded by the European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme.

What are physical planners even for? You write down stuff in there, and then you expect me to look it up at the right time before the event is due? Lmao

Iso si, o artigo podía ir nese "idioma castrado y humillado", axudando a dignificalo. E non teño claro que "estos viejos no son rentables": de ningún xeito? Non o teño claro...
