It makes me happy to see websites that still host pages from years ago and still work. It shows not everything on the Web decays. Link rot isn't inevitable.

I am just trying to understand permissive license like MIT.

I can copy any MIT licensed code, and publish it as proprietary code. Then I can claim ownership of the code. Now we have one code, 2 license problem.

Share a project idea you've worked on in private, made some progress, but eventually gave up on and never published.

Would you still love to finish it some day? Did you find an alternative solution? Realized the idea wasn't that great after all?

Looking forward to seeing all your replies! ❤️

Any easy service that allows serving email newsletters as rss? I would even selfhost if necessary

Just curious about how to use dark mode. What is your preference?

I have tried so many mail providers from Zoho to mailfence. But I always come back to tutanota. As I don't use POP3 or IMAP, tutanota web and app interface is so clutter free.
