DERELICT: Post-apocalyptic Earth scifi starring a lady at sea

cucureviews:

BASICS:

Title: Derelict
Updates
: Officially, Mondays and Fridays.  Realistically, once a week-ish.
Genre: Science Fiction
Premise:   Dang Thu Muy tries to survive in a flooded world full of hostile elements: the Fog, Miasmic creatures, and other humans.
Recommended for people who… think it’d be amazing if the kaiju from Pacific Rim settled in Waterworld.

Derelict follows Dang, a scavenger taking what she needs from ruins of human settlements in order to live alone on the Penumbra, her boat.  Like many action hero types, she is an expert survivor: resourceful and capable, quick to physically act, seemingly without ties to anybody else, yet unable to pass by on the other side of trouble without investigating what’s going on.  Dang talks to herself, yet stutters a little when trying to speak to others, which is all too real for anybody unused to socializing.  Unfortunately for Dang, she cannot stay separated from everybody forever.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.

This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. 

Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.

In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.

I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.

Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

-Morgan

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

DO YOU WANT THIS? NO?? CLICK THE LINK. REBLOG.

As I understand this ruling, it means that businesses now have to pay extra to ISPs to have access to their websites through that ISP provided at a reasonable speed. If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. 

This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.

This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you. You can’t go anywhere else, after all.

Everyone in the US needs to sign that petition, call their representatives, write angry letters and do whatever you can to tell your government that this ruling is Not Okay.

Dear Gentlemen of Comics...Can We Talk?

Laying my sword down for a second. You’re safe here. I’m not going to hack you to pieces. For the moment, at least. (See? That’s a joke. I’m normal just like you. I make jokes too.) But I warn you, this is probably not something you want to hear. Don’t be scared though….

A song that needs to be louder. 

With self-publishing and webcomics blossoming as they are, it’s pretty hard to include everyone in on the “backstage gossip”, as it were, and the last thing you want is to hear that someone caught trouble at a con from a person that “everyone knows is bad news”.

Guys, you gotta have our backs. If someone’s being a creeper, call them on it. If you see someone in an uncomfortable situation, give them an out, ask if they need help. If you organise cons, don’t book in guests that have a bad rep for this sort of thing, and make sure there are clear anti-harassment policies in place, especially for cosplayers, who seem especially vulnerable to it.

We’re all just nerds who like picture books here, let’s make it the best we can for all of us.

Right on.

We make Tumblr themes
