Account PSA:

I don't have this account linked with my Tech Ambrosia twitter account, as I don't really want to cross-post my content.

I have what I feel like are two very different audiences within the same retro-tech sphere, divided across the two platforms.

Thus, posts on fedi will be unique unless I'm looking for community input and trying to cast as wide a net as possible.

...Or I find something really neat and want to show as many folks as possible.

With all the new folks settling in, maybe I should do an post…

Hi! I’m Shyra, or you might know me as Amber from my YouTube channel.

While my Twitter and YouTube presences are more brand-oriented, this page is my personal furry-adjacent tech musings. (Or in a lot of cases, tech-adjacent furry musings)

Anyway, I suggest not following me if you’re into capitalism or crypto, or if you don’t understand the fundamental relationship between capitalism and human misery.

Hey, would anyone out here be able to make things that look like they're embroidered? Like, have embroidery software with a preview or know how to do that kinda art style?

They did it. They fucking did it. The whole west was crowing about how they’d finally suffer like all of us and they didn’t. It’s no coincidence that twitter won’t even let you RT Chinese news sources now. Being able to see what fucking cruel useless failures our leaders are compared to what’s possible is very dangerous

what all cis people need to know:

"cis" is not an acronym. it should not be capitalized like "CIS". it is a Latin prefix meaning "on this side of", like cislunar space, cisalpine Gaul, or cis isomers in chemistry.

I don't want queerness to be a tool of capitalism, that idea is deeply repulsive. I want queerness to be part of what DESTROYS it.

Pride icons for Night (CajunFoxNight on twitter) and Mutt (Bigteethyeen on twitter)! Mutt commissioned me for these and was super nice to work with!

Two hours left on a ten hour print and my new extruder’s pneumatic coupling decides it should have an out-of-body experience instead of working properly

it's amazing how computer graphics have come such a long way that we've gone from them needing tons of computers to render toy story to now people can make 18+ 3D furry animations on their home computer
