Hey peeps, I'm Stu and I run straylight.expectnomore.net. It's a small instance where I constantly try to cajole old internet friends into joining, but it's also open to anyone looking for a home online.

I post mostly about my pets, music, game development, and home improvement. And also usually links to weird shit.

+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.

It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.

But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...

... you felt free.

I think I don't have the attention span for NaNoWriMo, but have no other hobbies that are interesting enough to keep me from feeling the coldness of the Void, so now I'm down to fucking around with Audacity and doing dumb ass mash-ups of Avril Lavigne and Despacito. Wish me luck.

We're happy to introduce the Code of Conduct that will now apply to all #GodotEngine community platforms, for users and contributors alike.

We've been blessed with a well-behaved community so far, but it's time to write down our values and expectations.

Shorter days and colder weather. You know what time of year it is.
