hi~ im fenny and im doing art commissions~

my prices are $10 for a quick sketch, $25 for rough lines, and $35 for finished lines per character for portraits. You can also add flat colors for +$10, a simple background scene for +$10, and shading and highlighting for +$20

i'm open to doing more complex pieces and i'll adjust prices based on scene complexity

i'm also open to NSFW work, but please let me decide whether or not i want to accept it (there's subjects that i won't draw)

polyamory and aromanticism both challenge the concept of the nuclear family. While polyamory logically leads to building families with more than one romantic partner, aromanticism asserts that platonic relationships can be equally or more important than romantic or sexual relationships, and therefore, sharing living spaces with people other than your romantic partner and your 2.5 children is as legitimate as forming a nuclear family. When taken to it's logical conclusion this leads to more communal styles of living, which creates opportunities for communities to become self-sustaining and challenge the capitalist system

I could rant a lot about scaling services, and the scaling buzzword

The hypercapitalization of the tech industry by silicon valley means people tend to think about products as solutions to problems, instead of thinking about problems, architecting a solution, and working out the tools you need

Yeah... Judging by the notice, it wasn't Google, but rather, the RIAA, who basically told GitHub to take down the entire thing because a few images of their videos being used as examples in youtube-dl's readme file.

Sorry for the false accusation towards Google (they're still shit in plenty of other ways, though) but yeah. Seems music corporations are just doing their usual "spend exorbitant amounts of money to make sure people in poverty can't have fun" bullshit.

Holy shit... We went to update youtube-dl and got an error saying it couldn't find the current version.

So we went to download it manually from the site and found this.

Google fucking did a DMCA takedown to make GitHub pull youtube-dl.

In order for a market to be free, the people in it must be oppressed.

In order for private property to exist, public grounds must be taken away.

In order for profits to exist, the public must be stolen from.

Capitalism is theft. Capitalism is authoritarian. Capitalism is oppression.

Don't be a capitalist. Promote the public good, not the private. Promote the health and freedom of the many, not the health and freedom of yourself.

By RIAA's logic, if an OS component such as a video/audio codec loses its license, either due to expiry or whatever, the entire OS can legally be taken down under the DMCA, potentially bricking countless computers in the process.

Fuck that bullshit.

I'm amused that the Ubuntu MATE upgrade process casually informs you that the download would take almost 4 days on a 56k modem.

News you can use.

Let's talk neuroscience!! I started reading chapter two of this lovely book

I consistently find myself agreeing with Hofstadter about AI. He's the only person that I agree with on this subject. And his work constantly falls in line with what I have learned from neuroscience too

And on the pedestal these words appear:
"I am Ozymandias, King of Kings!
Look upon my works, ye mighty, and remember to like, comment, and subscribe!"
