Hello, everyone. I've decided to discontinue using Mastodon (& Twitter) until further notice. The main reason is engagement - I haven't received any response to any of my posts here in over six weeks, including to a post that was deliberately meant to test to see if anyone was reading. That is an indication that my energy is better spent elsewhere.
I will be off for a matter of days or weeks, and at that time I will reassess things: I'll either resume, remain silent, or delete entirely. [1/2]
Currently on the Forums: Lovecraft Country; a board game called Immune; strange difficulty levels in video games; whether or not lesbians can fly.

The idea behind the Atlantic forums <https://www.atlantic-computing.com/forums> is to build up a sort of critical mass of folks. Of course, if I knew how to do that, I wouldn't have 0 engagements on my posts on Twitter or Mastodon.

so around a century ago, there was a comic strip called The Outbursts of Everett True, where the titular character saw people being rude jackasses and decided to deal with this harshly and folks a lot of these still hold up perfectly in modern times
but i am delighted to announce
somebody's found the comics about mask-wearing
and They're Good, Folks

An unusual thought: Apply the idea of federation as practiced here to culture and politics. If #Maryland were in free association with other states, would we choose to follow Donald Trump? (Of course not.) Could we take our own measures against CoViD-19? Heck, would Larry Hogan be our Governor?
A radical idea - but this is the time for such. The old ways clearly will not get us through the 21st Century.
