Proud of the fact that my website looks the same in Firefox as it does in Lynx.

After more than a year of collecting tools and parts and fighting laziness, I've finally managed to flash coreboot on x230. Moving on to hardware mods.

Since lots of you (us included) are locked in their houses trying to avoid contact with other human beings, we thought it would be nice to spend this time socializing in front of computer with bunch of strangers you know so well from chats, social federated networks and whom you most probably never seen in real life.

The first edition of Quarantine with Disroot starts on Saturday 21.03.2020 20:00 CET and will go on until last one standing.

I'm using self-hosted miniflux feed reader for 2 weeks now, and really really happy with it. For a software described as 'opinionated' it matched my use-case perfectly.

a disturbing thing is that my utility, pkgconf, is basically in most modern unix systems at this point. it is also included in many commercial toolchains. toolchains benefit greatly from pkgconf as a tool. but guess how much pkgconf brings in? $0

not a single commercial vendor who has included pkgconf in their product has ever bothered to pay for maintenance of pkgconf.

the only time I have ever been paid to work on pkgconf is when I was working for a startup, who recognized that pkgconf was a key part of their build system and decided to allow me to use some of my hours to work on pkgconf and other Alpine toolchain issues. but that's indirectly. that's not a company saying "hey pkgconf is a key part of our product, here's $$$ to maintain it."

if pkgconf maintenance were properly funded, that alone, would cover all of my expenses. instead us free software developers all have to set up patreons and stuff because the invention of docker ate all the systems development jobs.

But seriously I do want help developing a new browser engine! I've got enough on my plate, but as a browser developer I feel a certain responsibility.

So if you're a developer who's also concerned about the collapse in browser divirsity, or even just security or accessibility, please tell me your interests and I might be able to suggest a smaller component for you to tackle in whatever spare time you have.

1. #zemlin PAC takes over Linux.com and claims it'll support GNU/Linux news
2. For a while site does news
3. Site turns to #marketing outlet of corporate #zemlinPAC members (for payments)
