@brennen I mean mostly I just figured out the issue under contention and then produced this dank meme while everyone else was arguing

Apparently my mom was digging through relics from when I was about 10 years old and found a bunch of letters from my classmates.

One of the boys was *extremely* impressed with how good I was at wrestling in gym class. Another really liked my cross-stitches 🙃

Buying myself some sparkly embroidery floss as a treat ✨

Still boggling that I will mark one decade working in tech this year

My hands are super cold for some reason so I have started wearing legwarmers on my arms. Fashion icon right here

Does anyone outside of public charities and Red Hat have a *business model* of hiring FOSS developers to work on existing community-run projects as *employees*?

I'd like to imagine a world where I'm compensated comparably just based on my FOSS work compared to what my employer pays me now? But I honestly can't.

to my non-(US) techie followers, if this seems high a) it is b) it's still below market for that job segment in major CoL areas c) employers wouldn't be paying this if they weren't making MORE than that from employees d) yes this is why I work in tech, to buy freedom

ah I've just caught up on the TL going nuts earlier over someone asking for 185k base as a senior dev at "mid to large sized cos" in the US and meanwhile I'm like "uh that seems low for large companies" so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ y'all need to more
