Pinned toot

As I work on next week's , lemme just plug my Ko-Fi account here. My work is a hobby that I do for free alongside full-time PhD studies, so if you enjoy the content I create and want to throw a few quid my way, I appreciate it! It helps pay for my website domain, among other things (like coffee to power my writing!).
