I totally forgot to mention that folks can support development of LaraComic with monetary donations, if they want and are able! Just added a list of ways to contribute to the GitHub Sponsor button, but thought I'd list them here, too:

Hey folks! You may have seen this already, but I've fixed the link, and I'd still like some help/feedback on the thing.
I'm (still) building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.
I need to work on work stuff.
I need to work on Microbox.
I need to work on Calends.
I need to work on self care.
I need to be able to focus to do any of those.
I can't focus, today. My grandmother passed this morning, and I'm not sure I'll be able to make the funeral. Already missed one grandmother's funeral because I was out to sea at the time, so I'd really like to not miss any others. But since my "great state" has garnished my income, I'm pretty broke.
Anyone out there remember ReBoot? The original, not the current retry.
I wanna be able to RP it. That means https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/techsupportcentral/hardboot-a-d20-rpg needs to get funded successfully.
I'm sad because it really looks like it won't.

@noiob Way belated, but I've been considering something similar myself, lately.
#TIL there is an open source project similar to #WolframAlpha, called #SymPyGamma
I find myself wondering how late I am to the conversation about turning black friday into Black friday... As in, it's not about sales, but about celebrating Black folk. The corporate machines will still grind out their "sales", dropping things to nearly-affordable prices from whatever insane amounts they raised them to ahead of November, but we could make today about something, if we wanted to.
I'm white as paper, so this isn't my conversation to have. But I'm curious.
It is proven! I am danhunsaker on Keybase: https://keybase.io/danhunsaker/sigchain#705af718ad68e9815589551d7167ce6bc16f5f1d8347b4a5cf2b562c395945ff0f
PSA and reminder:
The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Stop using them.
Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.
"But it's tied to darkness being scary and light being friendly!"
So is racism.
"You're just virtue signaling!"
I'm repeating what Black folks (and even some PoCs) have said multiple times already, about _their own lives_.

I know I'm not here as much as I used to be. I'm not here as much as I'd _like_ to be. But I found a really cool thing, and I wanted to share it with you:
This seems to be especially useful for folks living between the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars, though it's also super cool for folks who just really like calendars. I happen to be one of the latter. More on that elsewhere.
