After MANY months of consideration, and many MORE hours of work, I've finally migrated my website from WordPress to Hugo!

I'm still playing with settings, themes, etc, but so far I'm pretty happy with it. What finally pushed me to make the change was the new DigitalOcean App Platform, which was a breeze to use.

I want someone to make "karate kid: covid". He'd learn to defeat opponents with his mind only, no touching. And he'd train his mind by making bread. In the dough-jo.

When we die we are reincarnated as human. Not all in one spot. Your mind fragments and becomes part of all the human minds.

This raises key questions: bundling (“vendoring”) and its implications, contemporary #FreeSoftware development practices and their impact on distro relevance, avoiding/resolving technical disputes, and more.

I'm happy to announce a project I've been working on for a while now:

#OpenCuts, the open crowdsourced user testing suite

open-cuts.org
gitlab.com/open-cuts

OPEN-CUTS is a web-tool to help #OpenSource communities with user testing! The goal is to allow even inexperienced users to easily report test results for new software releases. OPEN-CUTS then aggregates and compares the metadata across versions to identify regressions.
