@tk yeah, seattle has gotten pretty unpleasant. :-/ very sad.
@finn :) thank you!
@isagalaev sorry man. :(
Me, on my tinfoil hat:
News this morning said that if Russia invades Ukraine, the first could be left out of the Swift, a system for global bank transactions.
Now, let's imagine that, for whatever reason and for whatever action, Russia gets accused of invading Ukraine. That means that no money transaction from or to Russia from around the globe will be possible.
BUT, AFAIK, Russia still have some big crypto bros, and that could translate in Russia being a massive crypto investor in the future.

@Canageek that's a VERY 90s color scheme there. it was in the cultural water.
there's probably several lineages of early webcomics that can be traced, I'd guess. Punk zine style, Marvel/DC style, and anime style are how I think things go.
IDK. There's probably some super rich anthropological material there describing the cultures of the time.
@wilfredh interesting. That's precisely what I *want* in general.
@raye they have to schedule an appointment
