Hey y'all, I've updated sponsorship levels! https://github.com/users/zkat/sponsorship
tl;dr: all levels under $300 are for non-corporate use. That is, the perks only apply when dealing with community and free software projects, not day job stuff.
At $300 you're paying for 1hr/month consulting :)
Having to do so much onboarding in the last year has really solidified my belief that you should let the new/inexperienced people steer. There are things everyone learns from this: having to describe steps in terms appropriate to someone else’s knowledge, how to ask good questions, plus: the docs get way better as a result.

Toe injury update/outdoor ambitions
This is a lot easier than the previous time I broke a pinky toe! I regret having to know that. I’m pretty frustrated about not being able to go backpacking though — everything was too hectic at the start of the summer. Maybe there will be something easy I can do over Labor Day? Who can I talk into dropping me off in the woods?
to be differently-specific: running a community is frequently fairly rewarding with little effort required for lots of good times, but then occasionally someone takes a dump on the floor and you have to put on the latex gloves and clean it up and put little signs around the affected area, and you have to be willing up front to do this an unspecified number of times at almost any time of day. none of this is in the software manual.

Turning 40 was harder than I expected
It turns out I can be happy with my life choices and still have a lot of
doubts about where I ended up. But! My skin has been mysteriously amazing for the last several days since my birthday (it turned into dry itchy hell in my 30s) so I wouldn’t mind if that turns out to be a age-related gift.
