Public Service Announcement!

You're allowed to turn off notifications, or mute them, or put your phone on silent, or even turn your phone off. You're allowed to *not* be available to anyone/everyone 24/7. You're allowed to take time off for yourself, and you're allowed to spend the whole day doing nothing if that's what your health, emotional or physical or mental, requires. If you need permission, this is me giving you permission to do nothing for as long as you need to. <3

mental health, amusing 

I wanted to find out why I was so anxious, and it took a while to realize that "checking the metrics" is not how bodies work x)

request for advice about synths 

ok music fedi, I have done my share of recording but I have almost always stuck to your typical guitar+bass+drums because I just don't know anything about synths. I'd like to dip my toes in using some VST plugin synths but I'd like some advice about where to start.

so what do you think? Is there a good freeware or cheap synth plugin you like? Or do you generate all your sounds with external equipment? Or a combination?

I know about modular synths but I do *not* need another thing to spend money on right now which is why I'd like to start with VST

Finished the soldering fume extractor. Made a wooden box that holds the ikea förnuftig particle and activated carbon filters and houses the six 120mm fans.

Works nicely, catches all the smoke when you solder in front of it and is not too loud at all. Filters and fans are cheap, so this gets me very good performance for far less money than any commercially available fume extractor.

so far, the absolute hardest part of GM'ing Shadowrun is not that there's five billion mechanics

it's stopping the table from getting distracted five minutes into doing legwork and ending up spending an hour seducing a helicopter pilot, because it's just too much fun a scene to roleplay, and every mechanic in this game has way too much depth it actively rewards you for engaging with it
