> The [Apple Computer] garage is a bit of a myth. We did no designs there, no breadboarding, no prototyping, no planning of products. We did no manufacturing there.

The Apple I computer was "slacking off at work" in action. Just imagine doing this today, good luck on not getting your copyright claimed by the company. #retrocomputing #apple

Do you know that Coding Analysis Toolkit (CAT) is discontinued and needs a new developer?

Sharing may help this unmaintained software to find a new maintainer.

CAT is a 14 years old qualitative data analysis software praised by many and is free software licensed under GNU GPL but is now unfortunately decommissioned by its developer.

My Kickstarter is only $1300 from making me do more work? :flan_nooo:

Fortunately, nobody wants to know how cliffhangers are a key strategy to unputdownable books, and will both drag people through your work and make them buy your next book.

So I'm safe. I'm sure. 😅

In 14th century England, an unskilled laborer made:
>480 pence a year
>worked 1620 hours yearly
>0.2963 pence/hour
>ale cost 0.75 - 1.5 pence/gallon

In Alberta:
>$24300 a year, provided
>1620 hours yearly
>$15/hour (minimum wage)
>beer costs $45.42 - $86.03 CAD (domestic & imported)

So, before accounting for taxes, you could get 320 - 640 gallons of ale/year then, or 282 - 535 gallons of beer now.

Very rough/crappy comparison but still, nice to know our purchasing power is worse than medieval peasants.

This holiday season, if you're going to buy friends and family presents, consider skipping Amazon and supporting some of your friendly, independent fedi artists instead!

Grab a beautiful calendar from @sylvia_ritter , a sublime in drawing print from @lila_bliblu an absurdist cult membership from @onan or one of thousands of great pieces of art from tags like #fediart or #mastoart.

Artists (of all descriptions) please post links to where people can buy your stuff in a reply!

Please boost!

If someone asks you to explain the gap in your resume, just say "I can't answer that without violating an NDA."

It's a really cool way to tell them to fuck off. They don't have to know that the NDA was issued by you to you, and signed by you on behalf of you.

Studying international shipping for book sponsorships, patrons, and #kickstarter backers.

Seems USPS International Flat Rate Shipping Envelopes is the way for single books, and it's about $40 for most of the world.

Folks who do shipping: is this where I should be looking? Or am I on a wholly wrong track?
