@alcinnz the idea that #FOSS developers *owe* anyone anything (which is what I see time an again in these complaints against #FOSS in general) is a mark of the very privilege that those complaining are (ironically) claiming FOSS developers are abusing. FOSS developers are writing software for themselves but making it available for anyone else should anyone else choose to use it as is, or make it more suitable to them based on *their priorities*. That _possibility_ is the point of #FOSS.

It's one thing if people are oblivious to mass surveillance. It's another if they are perfectly aware and do not give a damn.

They join is a few inches this side of the cooktop. Not bad for me doing it in place with the clamp holes routed in the underside.
Another coat of oil in 24 hours.
Thanks @kotik for pointing this out )))
