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.
Using feeds to read Internet sites, blogs, etc., has changed how I spend my time on line.
I don't open a browser if I'm not interested in the article, I don't spend time opening dozens of tabs on firefox, I even consume less resources and bandwidth.
Yeah, it's a matter of seconds. But a lot of seconds every day, it's a lot of hours every year. You are not going to be young forever. Your time is finite.
@ghostatty The fediverse basically is a network of echochambers, which is not a bad thing.
Perhaps it is harmful in the political sense, but absolutely delightful when it comes to special interests like retrocomputing or gardening.
Mastodon has a filtering problem, and I don't know how to make it work for me.
I dont want to see pornography, I dont want to see bots, and since I only speak a couple languages I rather not see posts I can't read.
The fediverse has way too much noise.
Modal programs are a great thing, now matter what Jef Raskin said about it. Modal editing is how you get to avoid memorizing finger contorting key chords.
Emacs is a great lisp fantasy computer. I like fantasy computers. I like lisp.
I would rather run a Genera virtual machine, or use stock Dr Racket.
Thinking of taking a Linux certification.
Which one do you believe is most "recognised" in the industry?
I do have experience in Linux but haven't had the chance to do "serious" stuff, so it's hard to prove what I know. I am leaning towards LFCS as it's practical and my memory is not what it used to be.
Boosts and comments welcome

For those who might be new to Fedi and don't know you can help reduce #Google's dominance in #video by using #Peertube and supporting those who run a Peertube server, like our admin, @witchescauldron.
You can help end Google's extreme dominance in #webSearch by using #TorBrowser and #searx websites. Tor can help make you more anonymous, while Searx sends your query to an array of #searchEngines like #qwant, #startpage and #duckduckgo and more, helping you get more diverse results.
Have a thing for strong type systems.
