‘There are few pieces of software as widely misunderstood as [#Emacs]. Emacs is frequently advertised and discussed as a text editor, but please be clear on this: Emacs is not just a text editor.’—Christoffer Stjernlöf, Why You Should Buy Into the Emacs Platform (https://two-wrongs.com/why-you-should-buy-into-the-emacs-platform).
The (awesome) economics of open source
"Theories help explain why companies... have prospered even in the face of economic arguments about why they should not."
"Proprietary software is unsustainable, both for those who write it and especially for those who buy it."
"Open source can lower barriers to innovation and increase the effectiveness of collaboration, enabling continued positive economic growth."

Drone seems to be working nicely with Gitea and incredibly easy to set up. Just wondering if it has any major drawbacks in the long run and whether time spent making Buildbot is worth the effort and additional flexibility.
Considering various CI tools for automated builds / testing. Any experience with Buildbot, Jenkins, Drone, ? Any self hosted CI recommendations from the community? Let your voice be heard!
Not using a Mac at a Linux conference needs to be on a lot of people's New Year Resolutions in 2019, https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/8pywij/texas_linuxfest_wheres_the_linux
FFS, I don't even get what do you need the Mac so much for if you primarily work with Linux, I had used macOS extensively, it's not that impressive.
Pi-hole is a great little DHCP/DNS server. Been running it at home for a solid week now. Paired with openvpn, there's ad / malware blocking on the go to cut down on unwanted mobile traffic.

hot take: you're not actually selfhosting if you use a cloud provider. you have to own the hardware or it doesn't count.
