Introducing https://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)
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.
Den största plattformen för fri programvara är en stängd plattform ägd av en techjätte.
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!
