"Must I return to my own world?"
"You helped save our world," the wizard said, "but you are not of it."
"I've learned your world! I fought, suffered, and triumphed!"
"We are grateful. But your greatest adventure awaits."
"Learn your own world, and help save it."

Thanks to @Mayana for introducing me to this poem (and highlighting the accessibility issues with poem formatting!)
I love the poem but I feel like it takes such a turn I can't even quote a bit without giving you the wrong idea about it.
The poet seems to use they/them pronouns too, which is cool!
No Video Jam 2 gave me an opportunity to get back into making games. Here's my entry, an audio-only take on a collection of sports minigames with PS1 inspired audio. Available on Windows and Mac with full controller support. https://pitermach.itch.io/retrolympics
AirPods demand reportedly falling as Apple cuts production by 25-30%
I was reminded by a Youtube video that guestbooks on webpages used to be a thing.
Say what you will about the early Internet - which could be shitty in many, many ways - but there's something charmingly innocent about "random people will leave comments in your online spaces, and that will be a good thing, actually".
Not to mention that someone leaving a comment was noteworthy and meaningful.
I think we've collectively become so jaded in the age of, say, Youtube comments.
#Debian has a new homepage - and I love the leading headline: "Debian is a #Community of People." Yes, it is also a Free operating system, but at a deeper level, the social contract reveals what it's really about: making the world a better place through software.
I have been a #Debian developer almost a quarter of a century now and I am glad to see these ideals continue to thrive.
Hey, could I ask you for a favour?
I used to write flash fiction regularly, once upon a time, and I'd like to get back into it.
It might be a great help with motivation if some people went and read stuff on my website and left a comment? pls?
It's random question time. This is something i've done a few times, but always just with people in the same room. Now i'm opening it up to everyone. Ask the first 3 questions you can come up with, and i'll try to answer them with an answer that could somehow be linked to all 3. I can't promise i'll be able to do it, and if i can't i'll just answer the questions.
A fun, happy little Mastodon/Hometown instance. Join us by the fire and have awesome discussions about things, stuff and everything in between! Admins: @Talon and @Mayana.
