This some class A BS. Not only are they disrespecting the user but they're also using their computing resources to mine bitcoins.

"Outreachy is a paid, remote internship program that helps people traditionally underrepresented in tech make their first contributions to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) communities." Apply soon! outreachy.org/apply/

It's fun to sometimes encounter new packages by looking at recent guix commits. I'm amused by this one:

(define-public badass
(package
(name "badass")
...
(synopsis "Hacking contribution graphs in git")
(description
"Badass generates false commits for a range of dates, essentially
hacking the gamification of contribution graphs on platforms such as
Github or Gitlab.")
(home-page "github.com/umayr/badass") ...)))

Yess! Or a hardware tutorial that says "solder this down here!
...

Oh but don't *actually* do that because everything breaks when you do that & then you'll have to order a whole new board, so instead do this..." 😩

TFW you do an example from the tutorial and it keeps !@$%'ing erroring and you keep trying to figure out what you did wrong

then you read one more line forward and it says "surprisingly this errors and here's why"

I accidentally almost signed an email with "Thanks for reaching out?" instead of "Thanks for reaching out!"

I caught it right before I sent it, but it's amazing how much difference one character can make in meaning.

Guix is officially participating in Outreachy: outreachy.org/2018-may-august/

Are you an underrepresented person in tech? Guix is a cool project with a great community, and Outreachy is a great program to participate through. Spend your summer hacking on and learning about lisp/scheme, functional package management, and more!

Levar Burton Reads is a great podcast. We just listened to "The Truth About Owls", which I highly recommend. Morgan: "That man's voice is a national treasure."

remember when I had a computer with working opengl
those were the days

(Don't reply with this telling me to not use github then or why it's nonfree; I'd like to but life is complicated and thanks I already know)

How did I get subscribed to so many projects with so many notifications on github

I don't even *like* github
