IF YOU USE OPEN SOURCE STUFF in the course of your day-to-day, consider sending the maintainer a thank you note: thankyouopensource.com/

OSS can be really thankless, and this tiny note can make a world of difference.

@xvilo Do you actually do anything with your Patreon account? It says you haven't posted anything and I see (Surprisingly) you only have 4 Patreons. 😢

TBH, have you got a paypal account? I'd rather send you €1.23 every 3 years rather than tying myself down to $5.00 a month. 😀

Hmm? Should I wipe which is currently running docker swarm and install Kubernetes instead? It's all very well saying "It's better" but the setup looks far more complicated for a marginal improvement over a swarm.

@xvilo well done mate, I'm not going to moan, all I'll say is: "It'll take me months to clear the nightmare from my mind that is mastodon.social"

Either two foxes were 'doing it' at 3am this morning or A-another creature lost its life.

Charlie and I have just woken up from a mid morning nap in an attempt to catch up on lost sleep.

It is Friday already?

Not that I am complaining, but this week just feels like it flew by.

Blimey. Poked my nose in the IRC channel to ask a question. WAY too much noise from all the joins and leaves to see if anyone answered my question 😟

The one day, the one day I leave my details at home and I finally start to get somewhere and they ask:

"𝘏𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘨𝘰𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘨𝘪𝘵𝘴...."

AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH

Don't drive yourself crazy trying to work out why someone followed you and continues to follow you even though they clearly have 'issues' with what you post.

The morning ritual:

Check the phone for messages, emails, updates and notifications.

Check the computer for messages, emails, updates and notifications.

Make a brew.

Say hello to the Interwebs. 👋

Got into an argument on Facebook 🤦‍♂️
