I'm still alive, despite the attempt(s) to the contrary, and still channeling every bit of energy, funding, and thought towards repaying the kindness and generosity of my contributors and supporters, and most especially for the ones who never stopped believing in me.
Insurance money came through, and I kinda fell off the internet to get Important Life Stuffs taken care of.
Name change paperwork.
A property purchase.
Acquiring a minion.
The path is still uphill.
Every penny helps.
I've got good people, my family and close friends, helping me build a place of safety and peace for my tribe, with the goal of helping yours through our collaborative efforts.
If you can't financially contribute, please share on social media, other people can help and just the boost offered by a spot on your news feeds will be enough if we all are generous when we have money in excess of "enough".

I am a member of the Audacious Space Pirates, we are peaceful people just trying to survive.
Help me prove we are stronger than our abusers.
I'm using the space to build homes for the rest of my tribe, starting with the ones who are being displaced by cruelty or administrative sluggishness.
I need to provide for the needs of three families right now. We're sharing what income we can scrape together to keep eachother alive until there's enough housing for everyone.
I'll be outside internet access range for some long periods of time in the coming months, and I'll be working out there to build us, and you, a collaborative and sustainable future.
We're building housing as fast as access to materials and energy to lift tools lasts.
We're documenting the process, and establishing guidelines for intentionally collaborative and human-centric communities.
I'm using my knowledge of the engineering disciplines to make the local utilities grid a distributed, self-healing, and secure system.
I've started accepting volunteers to join me and help with construction.
If you want to be a part of a discussion about this, I'll be online and communicating for a couple of days.
It's time to rise up and build a better way.
Between the lawsuit against Lind/Ramseyer/etc, I'll *eventually* have enough money to survive.
Whenever Lincoln Financial *eventually* gets around to providing me with my disability payments for the first half of 2018, I'll be doing great.
Right now, I lack the $13 in gasoline to go sharpen knives for tips, that might or might not allow me to afford food today.
I barely sleep from the active harassment anytime I park my car, and there's no place for me to stay more than a day or two.
When this is all...over...I will be paying this forward.
I can't promise anything, especially if I starve to death.
Agoraphobia is still pretty intense.
So is the PTSD.
I'd really just like to be able to brush my teeth in peace, yaknow?
But that costs money.
And I just took a chunk of metal to the head, see attached.
That's me taking the punches.
Now they're trying spreading lies to try to make the criminal charges more severe.
This is a manipulation tactic, people.
Seek out the truth.
(It's easy, just read what I wrote and ask clarifying questions if you're confused.)
This is immesurably frustrating, because I asked the judge for 2 weeks to move the rest of my things out, and he gave me 7 days because he was annoyed I cut into his lunch hour or something.
As soon as this money arrives, I'll be able to fix my car the rest of the way.
But until then, I'm stuck.
I'm working on a plan with someone who has a trailor to come and load up my car and store it in their yard until I have money to get the tools to fix the frontend.
Please boost and share.
Every penny helps, literally.
I use pennies as temporary heatsinks for R&D as well as for bus fare.
And, if you're in the PDX area, feel free to stop by and offer me cash for the stuff I haven't sorted and packed yet.
I'm at https://map.what3words.com/water.become.fixed, and I have 20+ years of theatre props, electroncs in various stages of repair, and tools that I'm trying to move.
