Contributing to free software requires privilege. Even regular contributors might sometimes find themselves without it.

Time, focus and money. You might find yourself lacking in one of these at various points in your life.

While software projects from startups move like streams, most free software projects move like glaciers. They move slowly but they keep moving for decades.

Being away from a project doesn't mean you have to give it up. You can join back later.

I went through so many disc brake pads through the course of about two years on my cargo bike. I blame the weight and hills. @mastobikes

I actually hate how k8s is just "accepted" as the solution for container orchestration. Like it's not the only way but even in some providers' interface, they alias "Cluster" with it.

I really sometimes just hate how four companies can dictate what the world uses. And people go with it without thinking because it's a form of job security

@mastobikes Can anyone provide suggestions on mudguards? I have had two rear SKS mudguards corrode and rattle apart the past two winters. I'm riding a Riese and Müller Load 75 with a 26" rear wheel. Looking for anything that is full coverage and will hold up.

Yesterday my key twisted off inside my abus shield frame lock. I'm almost happy that it's no longer usable. Frame locks are a terrible idea and this particular one was prone to letting in water and salt from winter roads.

Made a bunch of these little seedling starter pots out of toilet roll tubes. Going to give the idea a try with some simple herb seeds

I did some small OSM edits today using the app. It was fun!

Guix is going to be my gateway drug into Scheme.

Wow this is one of the most interesting things I've read in a long time.

Dependency Confusion as a vulnerability to repos that use NPM, RubyGems, & PyPI.

Today I discovered CyclOSM. I'm really impressed and I hope to make contributions one of these days.
