@theoutrider The Thumber demo in VR was amazing.

Helpful kitty batting away your issues! :3

@hergertme I think I'm only following you from two accounts (main and one I don't use; the third account isn't following anyone, IIRC).

So you should still have a good amount of followers here.

Besides, it's all about quality, not necessarily quantity, right? 😉

I'm writing a guidebook for activism.

Dear world,
resist.guide
is online.

My insurance company hasn't paid my disability this year.
I'm being evicted.
