open source software development advice
If you do a thing in an open source project, and you have a hard time doing it because it's not documented, after you finish doing the thing... document it. If the project has a wiki, put it in the wiki. If it has a docs repo you can write to, put it there. Or at least blog about it so search engines can index it.
Please don't leave the solution to languish in a chat log somewhere.
I'm absolutely amazed by how awesome @sir 's projects like sourcehut.org and aerc-mail.org are. If you don't know about them, they are well worth checking out, same as his blog at drewdevault.com (have already several articles saved to read later)
Here's a blog post about blogging with links to other people's blogs with blog posts (not about blogging). Should I tag this with #blogging? 🙃
Today I learned... #Golang
"Go out, take care of yourself and others, away from the screen. And then come back and publish your own stuff on your own site."
Very inspired by this "Take back your web" talk, about the building blocks of the #indieweb
Spending a lot of time with #Elmlang lately, couldn't be enjoying it more 😄

I blogged about my Rust powered linux.conf.au e-Paper badge.
The best, deepest, dialogues they ever had on Star Trek: Voyager.
Janeway: Let me ask you something. If you were something other than a human being, if you were a different kind of animal... If you were a small bird, a sparrow - what would your world be like?
da Vinci: I should make my home in a tree, in the branch of an elm. I should hunt insects for food, straw for my nest, and in the springtime, I should sing for a companion.
Janeway: And you would know nothing of the politics of Florence - the cutting of marble or mathematics.
da Vinci: Of course not.
Janeway: But why not?
da Vinci: My mind would be too small.
Janeway: As a sparrow, your mind would be too small, even with the best of teachers?
da Vinci: If Aristotle himself were to perch on my branch and lecture till he... fell off from exhaustion - still the limits of my mind would prevent me from understanding.
Janeway: And as a man, can you accept that there may be certain realities beyond the limits of your comprehension?
da Vinci: If I could not accept that... then I would be a fool.
