Food on the table while giving away code https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2021/01/15/food-on-the-table-while-giving-away-code/
I’m living the open source dream, working full time on the project I created myself: curl. But it's not entirely easy.

But the individual package managers crap out with binary dependencies sometime. R Studio's rspm has best solution for this so far - they build binary packages for all packages, and list the debian packages needed!

if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.
make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.
it's the LEAST you can do.
I've finally internalized the fact that it doesn't matter what DE/WM/editor/tool you use. Every piece of #software comes with its trade-offs and peoples tastes & needs will naturally differ.

There's a certain sense of tranquillity in accepting & respecting each others preferences without fighting about which tool is better.
