i'm sorry about the closure of computer fairies, but after 4 years of fighting the software and the external community, for as little upkeep as we strain ourselves to do these days, it still hangs around our necks like an anchor at high sea.

we'd love nothing more than to continue to provide the service for the few who we are thankful for continuing to stick with us through this whole journey to this day, but the financial and technical upkeep cannot be justified in its current state.

we welcome those (within reason, and our own personal vetoing) who would like to help keep up the instance, and we pledge to keep the instance online until the end of the year for that matter.

we thank everybody who has shown us solidarity, friendship and kindness in these past 4 years.

i, personally, will not be making a return to the fediverse if and when this instance closes, but you can find me elsewhere.

mastodon in theory: decentralized twitter

mastodon in practice: what if we pooled ten different early-2000s opinionated web forums together into a thunderdome

i can plug my new midi controller into my 2004 ibook g4 with reason 3 and bang out some tunes

the battery holds a really good charge on it still, too, so i could totally just be the asshole who sets up a complete portable music workstation in a starbucks

hire me to make you early 2000s web graphic design for your phpbb forum

Imagine if all chat systems had some built in profile change thing with separate profile pics and names like a built in plural kit how incredibly useful that would be not only for systems but also for RP and stuff

I'm pretty sure I'm both older than her and have been out as trans longer, and yet I still feel like a wee baby in queer circles, which makes her asserting herself as an ancient Authority on queerness doubly hilarious. twitter.com/parasocialyte/stat

at least on tumblr, ive recently been encouraged to explore my queerness, to make new terms to describe it if i didnt find one that fit, and that its ok if i use or dont use certain labels and definitions for myself.
twitter will give you 20k sui bait qrts for doing this.
