Dear Doctor Professor Mr. Lunduke, Esq.,

I am a DevOps Engineer professionally and an Android ROM developer. I know a ton of telemetry can be detrimental to your freedom, and I hate it myself, but it is a major metric in my job. I've wanted to add telemetry to our open source Android ROM to give me a better idea of what/how features are used. I plan on it being anonymous, only incrementing values on the server.
Do you think open source telemetry is evil?
P.S. I use Arch

Voila, working secure ssh based git server that's modifiable by a simple git push.

That was a mistake.

Things that are damn near impossible to do cleanly in multi user space (especially from a user without GUI access):

- multi user access to Brew (in a logical and safe way)
- gpg 2
- python3 (safely)
- any web server outside of apples bunk ass Apache
- gopher servers

Sometimes taking care of the hard things is self care. Get them done and you'll free yourself of that stress.

This picture, which is linked to on that page and which would immediately be recognized by anyone who's heard of Sherlock Holmes as being Sherlock Holmes, has exactly ONE characteristic that is accurate to the canon stories.

That one thing is the nose.

Seriously, think how you feel when you get a boost without a fav, that's all those poor bots get! This is not how we should treat our children😔

I spent the day making chilli and putting the finishing touches on my custom .

Now I'm finishing off the night listening to Marvin Gaye and playing cribbage with my fiance. It's wonderful to disconnect from the tech once in a while

In short, burnout hurts worse than recovery irritates. Trust me on this, recovery is the lesser evil indeed.
