Introducing seeking-maintainers.net! 🎉

A few days ago, @kev asked the community for help maintaining his side-project, 512kb.club. This got me thinking.

There are loads of maintainers out there feeling burnt out, but they can't abandon their project since people are depending on the project to be maintained.

In an effort to combat this, I built a website that lists projects looking for new maintainers. It's still quite empty and has some rough edges, so any feedback is very welcome.

I recently returned to the internet after 2 months working as an oceanographer/data-monkey/tame nerd aboard the icebreaker NB Palmer in the Southern Ocean.

FOSS, in particular Python, made this possible for me. One of my most rewarding achievements on board was creating a Python-Flask internal website to show a map of all the samples the various teams collected.

If you're interested in oceanography, the Antarctic or working in the field, feel free to message me 🙂

Itch.io's bundle for ukraine is entirely too many games to comprehend 🤯. (About 570 digital and 320 phyisical/tabletop games if the summary count is to be believed plus some assets, comics, music for good measure)

Working as a developer doesn't mean you're smashing keys on your keyboard for 8 hours straight.

It's thinking, learning, experimenting, communicating, reading, trying, exploring, scribbling, and probably a dozen other things. Then, for just a couple minutes each day, you actually type some code.

Autumn last year I learned the skill of working with concrete and laid down the foundation for the greenhouse. Looking at the solid foundation I must admit it feels kinda nice to have done something that actually can withstand an EMP fart compared to the software that noone can touch nor squeeze.

Take action (one small step) on something you’ve been avoiding that will make your life better in the long run.

Don't write as little code as needed, write as much code as required to make it readable and understandable.

Den största plattformen för fri programvara är en stängd plattform ägd av en techjätte.

#Gitlab är ett alternativ som erbjuder en fri programvara som du kan drifta själv. #Gitea är en annan öppen plattform för egen dirft - men inte alla har kompetens eller tid att drifta själv.

Den bästa lösningen enligt mig: drifta i förening med andra, lite som #fripost är en förening som driftar e-post.

#Codeberg är en sådan förening som driftar en Gitea-instans. Använd den!

Just hooked up the PinePower that arrived today in the mail and it got accepted by the household in seconds!

Awesome charging station @PINE64 and thanks @Mundon for the tip! :-)

Making world-class docs takes effort daniel.haxx.se/blog/2021/09/04

Don't think you can shortcut your way out from work if you want your project docs to shine!

Human! All that noise for such tiny cup of 30ish grams of brown liquid!?

Been using my Planck for quite some time now and today I paired it with an awesome wrist rest custom made by LoHa designs. Not only is it awesome to type on it also looks good and the desk is clutter free thanks to the 40% form factor.
