@olivia it isn't poor vs privileged. It is people with lots of free time vs people who are volunteering most of their free time to make the world a better place.
I have an idea for a patreon like system for software devlopment.
Suppose a software takes $10,000 to develop.
Then you set a minimum amount like $100 per license.
Then once 100 people buy it, the price of the license reduces to $10,000 ÷ 101. The difference is credited to all the original buyers. So as more and more people buy it, the per license price keeps dropping and the differnce is credited to all buyers.
I'd love to see someone implement this idea. Boosts appreciated.
Hello! I've made a thing for #gemini
gmsfn is a feed builder for Gemtext pages that I wrote because I wanted something a bit different to CAPCOM and spacewalk.
To find out more:
See an example here:
Thanks to @sir for gmni, which I used for all the Gemini protocol stuff and Gemtext parsing.
Also, recommend me some gemlogs!
Just a reminder:
Time is expensive.
As a father, free time is a scarce resource.
The OpenBSD developers and contributors are donating their free time to the project.
If you can't contribute with your time and knowledge (my case) but can contribute financially, please, do so. Every donation counts, no matter how small.
There is no corporate behind this wonderful project and I think that's the reason #OpenBSD is the way it is.
Let's help keep it that way.
And this is why I'm making all of my code GPL / AGPL
You want my code? You'll have to contribute back.
Sharing is caring.
this is a pretty abstract concept to wrap your mind around, so let’s get some examples of ghosts of christmas past, ghosts so powerful they posess many different software products.
notice a pattern?
perhaps the most amazing thing about Linux finally getting support for not-shit bluetooth is that no other OS on the planet will advertise, will tell you, what kind of connectivity you are getting (what codecs you are using) in talking to your bluetooth devices.
on the one hand, there's a little: wow, whoa, linux has been kinda terrible, hasn't it? (not supporting more than baseline SBC codecs.) truthfulness.
https://github.com/EHfive/pulseaudio-modules-bt has been a thing for a little bit but only for some in the know, looking. just now support is being brought into the monolith, into pulseaudio, is it becoming real for "all".
but meanwhile the definition of all is reshaping. meanwhile pipewire will have to go re-fight these configuration fights again, re-grasp at configuration, as it moves beyond the previous plugin model into it's own expanse.
I'm excited to share my #apconf2020 talk, "Decentralized Social Media vs the Trolls."
In it, I tell how the #Fediverse, a #decentralized social network, rallied together to isolate an invasive right wing extremist group through codes of conduct, human moderators, and strong moderation tools.

I have started using #Neomutt. Thanks to Luke Smith's Mutt Wizard, setting up multiaccount with offline email using isync was a breeze.
My next step is learning how to configure everything to my own liking on my own and removing my dependence off the mutt wizard.
My understanding is that some people use #plan9 , and that's awesome. I want to learn how to use it myself, just cuz it's something else to know.
I think #microkernel OSes are awesome and I would like to know if there's any sort of community around them?
Have a thing for strong type systems.
