Today I got promoted to IT manager position after my proposal got approved by the management to use multiple open source solutions and replace propriety products the company is using.
Tests went well and they were happy with the services. I will be handling the migration and training for the coming months.
To thank the wonderful open source community I will be donating a part of my pay for the coming 3 months.

Found a super-handy command today. fselect is a program that imitates SQL SELECT syntax for filesystem searches. Examples:
fselect path FROM / WHERE is_shebang = TRUE # Writes a list of all interpreter scripts to stdout. Also a lot of permission denied errors to stderr.
fselect path, size FROM ~ WHERE name LIKE '.%' AND is_file = TRUE ORDER BY size DESC # Writes a list of hidden files in your home directory somewhere from biggest to smallest.
I really like Intercooler.js's ideas for starters.
It may arguably improve your site's experience on a desktop/laptop or even touchscreen phone, but it worsens your experience on, say, a "smart" TV or voice assistant even more so. This promise of universal accessibility was a big selling point for the Web early-on.
