Hey everyone, want to borrow ebooks from on YOUR terms? 

Here's a method I came up with using Calibre, on all platforms where it's supported.

1. Install the DeACSM and DeDRM plugins into Calibre
2. In the plugin preferences, configure DeACSM and set up anonymous authorization, then export the encryption key and import it into DeDRM's ADE keys
3. Restart Calibre! This is important!
4. On, find the book you want to borrow and loan it out
5a. If you can borrow it for two weeks, do that and download it in the format you prefer
5b. If you can only borrow it for an hour or it doesn't give you a download, borrow it anyway, then copy the identifier in the metadata, add it to the following URL:<IDENTIFIER GOES HERE>&format=pdf&redirect=1 and download that (you can also change the format to epub or similar but it may not always be available)
6. Add the ACSM file to Calibre and it'll download it and then decrypt it for you
7. Be sure to return the book so other people can use it right away!

Happy reading!

bev, a comedy of errors 

signs that you need coffee:
* you forget to turn on the coffee maker
* you forget to grind the beans and get the thought of coffee
* you forget to put the grounds in the coffee maker and get a nice hot cup of water
* you forget to close the coffee maker and get a nice faceful of hot water
* you forget to add milk, cream, and/or sugar
* you forget to take your coffee with you

Gonna label myself as a bi lesbian largely out of spite for exclusionists

Curiosity poll regarding social media approach.

Please boost because we're really curious about the experience-approach for as many users as possible.

We have excluded two options here and will explain why:

Twitter exclusively: probably not gonna see this poll if you don't use Fediverse at all

Spiderman: We assume everyone would add Spiderman to their options because of how polls work.

I could really stand to get replacement joycon shells though, the finish on these wore off and a screw stripped during a repair, Maybe I'll get translucent pink because that's also an aesthetic

Show thread

Picked up Kirby and the Forgotten Land with store credit for trading in a DS game that sold for a surprising amount (more than I paid at that), and I'm not playing it on my Kirby stickered Switch, with my Kirby stickered joycon grips, holding my aftermarket modded pink joycons with red thumbstick covers

I think I have a thing going, what do you think?

You know that 'Bionic Reading' thing that's supposed to be easier for some people to read? It's behind a $500 a month API, so someone made a free alternative:

Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.

You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.

Looking for Your Favorite Zines! :boost_ok: 

Hey y'all! :blobwave:

I'm going to try to make a few zines this summer and part of that project is finding interesting or creative examples of zines to use as inspiration (and also to print and stuff into tiny libraries around Seattle).

If you know of any particularly awesome Zines, I'd love it if you'd share them with me! :blobsmilehappyeyes:

Lots of block recs.
