@josemanuel @njoseph oh bug off. there's no way in the world I'd have been able to contribute to FOSS to the extent I have if my jobs weren't supportive, and I don't even have any dependents. to the point I had to basically take a full year or longer off because work was actively obstructing me from working in FOSS and the time I was trying to spend on it was burning me out, so I just ended up feeling guilty and awful all the time.
I frequently think about how lucky I am that after working in this field for a decade, I'm finally being paid full-time to work on an upstream project.
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
