I'm looking for some recommendations of good sci-fi or fantasy (any length) that is from a non-dominant perspective. Preference to non-dystopia.

I forgot that @Twitter@twitter.com purposefully puts accounts that you've blocked or muted near the top of results on any trending topic, and why I shouldn't use the website version where topics are displayed.

You get a piece of mail sometimes that knows you too well.

In new news, I still haven't found a markdown editor that hits most of my list of wants. Boostnote and Simplenote are the two that battle it out most frequently for me, and until I break down and make my own, I doubt I'll be satisfied.

I've been listening to the audiobook of 'The Magicians', and it is a bit different and weirder than I expected. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, but I haven't completed it as quickly as I normally do.

My latest post is how to setup a custom color palette for editing in WordPress, as well as allow Customizer modification and removing the color picker.


This short story is a wonderful piece of speculative fiction from @Annaleen@twitter.com, cohost of @ooacpod@twitter.com. I want to see more stories, even if I agree that the genre terminology is clunky!

I decided to give it a full day to see what kind of interaction that I'd get on a Tweet that I made yesterday that was critical of the company.

While a good number of my Tweets get no visible interaction, this one seems to have had far fewer impressions than the day prior.

Did you know that you can report a tweet as "abusive or harmful" and instead of submitting, it gives you the option to block/mute with "we're sorry you saw something on Twitter that offended you."

Would saying "fuck right off" offend @twitter@twitter.com?

I'm a big fan of using Alfred workflows to do rote tasks quicker. Homebrew helps me do the same for apps on my Mac. Putting the two together is a no-brainer!


If you write CSS that affects Beaver Builder modules, you may accidentally make changes to the page editor as well. Here's a way to fix that.


I'm self conscious about being the selfie guy in public, but gotta thank @SiteGround@twitter.com for the warm hoodie to wear while I've gotta work from Starbucks and it's too cold for Florida

Repeated public request for @GooglePlay@twitter.com Music and @YouTube@twitter.com @youtubemusic@twitter.com to allow you to block and remove artists from being suggested to you.

I do not appreciate seeing very public homophobes, racists, misogynists, and rapists being suggested as things I might want to hear.

Oof, getting an email from a company offering similar services that I offer but cheaper, but also confusing me since their name is one extra letter of another well known company in the same space.

It looks like I can only have one multi-factor authentication device/method on my AWS account, is that right @awscloud@twitter.com?

Look, I know it's good to get time off the internet,but not when it's been forced through an outage and comes on again right as you're about to head to bed. Guess I'll catch up on things before the Meetup tomorrow.
