Can it really be called when the local timeline on is all about:

- perfect Linux OS
- resources needed to host peertube
- Python

:D

Feels like a breath of fresh air when you can scroll down and learn things, instead of feeling outrage at things out of your control.

@koreymoffett Voted Microsoft, not so much that I "trust" them more, but that I think Google is more competently evil.

About 3 weeks ago, a friend and I began development on gofe.app, a private wrapper for Google Search.

Now, we're happy to say that Gofë is our daily driver.

Fully free (as in freedom) and open-source, Gofë delivers Google results privately, without all the invasive tracking.

If you like it, give us a boost!

Do people even understand that we are under attack, like LGBT people of all ages worldwide? Why are we arguing about whether we’re family friendly or threatening at a parade for a third year in a row? What is wrong with you people?

But because I make more money contracting, working on projects I don't believe in, I feel like a sell out. Objectively my mental health comes first, right?

Should I go back to a lower paying role that I believe in? Is it worth the mental stress of the 9 to 5? worth sending my future wife back to working a job she doesn't like?

I'm very privileged, but I feel like I don't deserve it because of the work I do.

I feel like a sellout. does anyone else struggle with this?

... I don't feel overwhelming guilt if I need a sick day or a mental health day. I get to work with my fiance, being able to employ her and have her help me with so many aspects of my job brings us so much joy and deliver amazing work. Am I still a sellout? why do I still feel like one?

I make more money as a contractor, I've always had trouble with my finances, again due to the ADHD, so more money = a buffer = less mental stress. cont... 👇

As a software I find myself missing out on being able to commit to a project long term and have little to no influence in encouraging my clients to either use or create open source software.

I find myself obligated to work on platforms I don't believe in or trust, such as AWS, Google Cloud etc.

Am I a sellout? Why don't I find a permanent role for a company I believe in?

Being a contractor has been massively beneficial for my ADHD, I make my own hours... cont 👇
