In an earlier thread, I wrote briefly about trans people in medieval Europe, and discussed some of the main issues when studying the medieval history of trans people.

Today, if you'll indulge me, I want to spend some time discussing a single person in detail. I want to talk about the way she's been written about, and about her and what she can teach us about life as a trans person 600 years ago.

This is the story of Eleanor Rykener.

So we discover very rare events happening in the sky, and assign value to them. Then, if we notice it again, we tell the rulers and they start wars or whatever, and then historians get freaked out by the coincidences.

Humans are just weird. We literally give ourselves bonuses or penalties based on hardcore a belief is... magic.

My new policy for talking about folks online, especially in an endorsement or boosting effort, is to not link to anything. If someone asks me to link to something, that link comes under my scrutiny, and if I choose to link after all, it may come with a very nasty warning. This obscure little toot is all the warning anyone gets. Time to be kind on the web.

The reason I've embraced being a chaos mage is because my experiences lead me to believe the human condition is itself experienced along a spectrum that includes wonder and boring mundane practical thinking. And yet, none of those zones appear to be able to break away from each other. So I choose to plant my flag in wonder, and ride life from there. Magic.

We are nomads, seeking any vegetation we can find in the smokey wasteland that used to be the land of Oak...

Okay, so instead of putting programming behind *and* on top of HTML, we should just keep it as a document storage and layout engine, and then individual orgs can release their own scripting engines for stand alone programs... oh wait, that's already how it works.

We need an HTML and CSS browser. An actual web *browser*.

I'm... yeah. Yes. I'm okay with that. I fuxking love mud inventory!

So, use that data to supply the data to yer game! You can add the chaos or a large regional transit system into your game, in real time!

Personally, I like the idea of each station being a planet or system, and the lines are just the natural way the hyperspace lanes fall. It means you have tribes forming along routes and isolated stations!

@61 @Purism Purism is doing incredible work integrating Matrix as a first-class citizen on the Librem 5 phone and that is our main focus.

Signal serves a "bridging" purpose: users who are currently in the privacy/digital rights space will expect it to run or have to use two phones (making long-term commitment to Purism very unlikely). This is especially true for our early adopters.

We can't tackle network effects overnight and force people into our choice of E2EE client.

I'm actively recruiting volunteer devs for a native Signal / Signal-like client in Gtk, in the hopes that we can bring it to the @Purism Librem 5 phone. Please contact if interested.

I should point out, this is first grade homework, and Clover is 7. We are not fucking around.
