RPGer needs help:
Developer in Trouble
So hey... It's been a bad year. I got badly screwed by a deadbeat client in June, which left me flailing. Yesterday I received a 5-day notice to pay rent or move out, but I can't afford to do either of those things right now. I've found no new web clients aside from tiny jobs in the last month. The independent webdev industry is dying, replaced by $99 templates and automated bootstrap sites. I'm barely able to keep my utilities on, and my bank account is negative. The prospect of ending up living in a van with my wife and child, all my possessions gone, has never been more real. We have some money coming in within 60-90 days (my wife's father's estate is now in probate), but timing is everything, and my property management company has no reason to be human about this.

Right now, frankly, I'm terrified and struggling to remain rational.

If I've ever written anything you enjoyed, I would be very thankful if you decided to drop some money in my tip jar at https://paypal.me/AsIfProductions - that would be so helpful.

But what I'd like even more is to be of value to you. I want to work, I want to continue working, I want to earn my keep. So with that said, here are some of the things I offer:

- Games My RPGs and game supplements are all available at DrivethruRPG.com and RPGnow.com. Game design is my passion, if not my full-time profession. I would love for it to be my sole means of income, but I haven't reached that point yet. Your game purchases help me move closer to that goal. You can check out my stuff at http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/6911/As-If-Productions or http://www.rpgnow.com/browse/pub/6911/As-If-Productions

- Writing and Editing I've written and edited fiction and nonfiction, game rules and supplements, magazine articles, technical docs, user manuals, and books on web development. I was Senior Editor of a nationally-distributed magazine called "PIX-Elation" in the 90s, and am currently curating and editing the #UbiquiCity project; a science fiction anthology and GM's sourcebook. Need a writer? Need an editor? Contact me and we'll discuss your project. http://asifproductions.com/freelance-writer-editor

- Small Business Websites My lightweight CMS "Axis" is a simple website solution for small businesses and independent content creators. Axis runs on any Linux host (even those cheap shared hosting accounts), and I can set you up with a custom website within 48 hours. Prices range from $450-$1500, depending on the functionality you require. More info at http://asifproductions.com/axis-cms

- Big Business Websites I'm a dedicated Drupalista, veteran PHP coder, and CSS ninja. For the last 21 years I've made most of my money building business presence sites, multi-author blogs, online communities, topical directories, e-commerce sites and portals. I offer everything from bugfixes and fancy script effects to full site designs and information architecture. My complete web dev portfolio can be found here: http://asifproductions.com/webdevportfolio

I hate having to write something like this. My work ethic is strong and I don't like to beg. I've never had to do this before, but 2017 has hit me hard and left me with no other option. If you're still reading, I thank you for making it this far. If you want to share this post, please do so. Anything you can do will be sincerely appreciated, and put to vital use. Here's hoping for a better future, for all of us.

We've been having one of THOSE months. Car breaks down; other vehicle needs repairs; vandals ruin tires throughout the neighborhood, including multiple on our working vehicle and my son's car; customer doesn't pay and I have to hire a law firm to get payment; major order I already paid for gets delayed 90 days, so I won't get repaid until October; lawn mower explodes; and last night the fridge stopped working.
So - GoFundMe, here I come!
Thanks in advance and please share!

Geeeeeks, it's critical to my enjoyment to resolve my dilemma - which cup should I drink my coffee from (quick I'm thirsty)?

Looking for a dystopian plot - look no further than this article ... shadowy billionaires nudging democracy (dot-mock-crazy) into the cupboard
