I'm looking for input on some knitting stitch classification and terminology. (Oh, how I wish we had good controlled vocabulary in knitting, but there it is.)
Apparently our building elevators have a communication system that can be dialed from outside, and since they are, well, elevators, they automatically pick up the call. Now some spammers have the elevator number and the elevators being robodialed with offers for timeshare vacations that can't be disconnected by the riders.
Taking the stairs, thanks.

Last year, @JerryBrownGov vetoed a bill requiring law enforcement agencies to post standards, practices, and training materials online.
The legislature & governor should pass the new version and support transparency & accountability for these agencies.

so a friend is donating his 8gb RAM, so that's saving around £50-£80, and we already have £30! I'm really grateful to every who's helped out so far, and I'm aiming to have a working computer before September (I could do with it now but that's not going to happen)
if y'all aren't comfortable with donating money, hit me up if you have spare internal bits and we can work something out! ❤
hey yall, I've started a fundraiser so I can get a new PC. My old computer was made from old parts, and is now completely fried. I need my own computer to be able to carry on making art and doing college work without having to switch with my girlfriend all the time.
We worked out the prices, and we can get new parts for my old computer for around £350.
If anyone wants a commission instead of just donating, please leave a message!

Headed home :)
Gosh I still get those silly flutters about you all.
Eeee... I just have the joy of being here <3
Be well, all.
It's been a great first year.
I'm so bad at colour theory that I may as well be colour blind!
Luckily for me, I found http://www.color-hex.com/ which generates a "complimenting colour" from a hexadecimal code! It also has a "Trending Colours" page to see what's popular. It helped me out a heck of a lot 👍
Jeez, I sound like a bot or an advertisement.
I have been running this instance for 10 months.
Wow, time flies sometimes...
