I've made an alternative frontend to Medium:

scribe.rip

If you, like me, are occasionally forced to read articles on medium.com, now you can read them on Scribe instead! Feedback welcome.

Website/app request 

Does anyone know of a free and ad-free website or app that lets people play Scrabble (or unbranded scrabble) asynchronously with friends?

Let me slip into something more... comfortable. (steps on a banana peel and pratfalls into a jacuzzi)

My partner has the audacity to vacuum in the office while I'm hacking so I'm blasting Clown Core in retaliation.

Consider donating to this campaign giving no-strings-attached money to black women in Georgia: community.givedirectly.org/cam

Cool things about it:

- Comes from recommendations of a local community task force meant to address economic disparity
- There's explicitly no financial literacy training attached. These women know how to spend money, they just need it to spend
- The money given is no string attached. Agency!

Tolkien spent his whole life perfecting the pseudo-history behind things like Elvish gerunds (which is when in English you add "-ing" to a verb). he can therefore be said to have devoted his time to writing The Lore of Their "-ings"

I feel al little conflicted about this honestly. I love RSS deeply. However, I don't like the dominance and control that many of these big platforms have and I feel like subscribing to their content, even via RSS, fuels these platforms.

At least you're not giving them tons of your personal data while you enjoy the content though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Do you prefer to buy DRM-free ebooks?

You can read them on any device you want, and they're not locked to a single vendor or company. You actually own them.

Here is a list of online bookshops that sell DRM-free ebooks, digital comics, and RPGs!
