I don't get paid for programming. Can you fund me or hire me?

It seems some open-sourcers strategies may have been to gain fame from finding existing packages then duplicating them (with the exact same functionality, or a subset or superset) instead of sending PRs or using existing solutions. Package maintainers can want to do this to build up a portfolio of popular packages, to consolidate popularity and power to themselves, and thus gain funding. Willfull ignorance of alternatives at the time of publishing stems from the similar intention. Naivity however may be accidental, in which case consolidation of duplicates can be a desired outcome where possible, as it consolidates maintainership and features for a better user experience. There is valid reason for duplication however, where an original author was not receptive to pull requests.

This gist is to look into such instances. It is not to say whether or a case was accidental or not. Only that such duplication exists, in the hope that it can be noted and hopefully resolved.

Eventually one could do up a programmatic

These days instead of the below, I recommend using my setup-dns script from my dotfiles which will setup encrypted DNS for you automatically.



Install DNSCrypt:


You are an indivisible entity of matter and consciousness . Renounce your consciousness and you become a brute . Renounce your body and you become a fake . Renounce the material world and you surrender it to evil . “ And that is precisely the goal of your morality , the duty that your code demands of you . Give to that which you do not enjoy , serve that which you do not admire , submit to that which you consider evil — surrender the world to the values of others , deny , reject , renounce your self . Your self is your mind ; renounce it and you become a chunk of meat ready for any cannibal to swallow . “ It is your mind that they want you to surrender — all those who preach the creed of sacrifice , whatever their tags or their motives , whether they demand it for the sake of your soul or of your body , whether they promise you another life in heaven or a full stomach on this earth . Those who start by saying : ‘ It is selfish to pursue your own wishes , you must sacrifice them to the wishes of others ’ — end

Hey guys, I’d like to have your opinion on something. As we all work in tech my guess is that most of us think Universal Basic Income (UBI) is an idea that should be given serious thought I also think many of you have seen this video by Laurent Alexandre last week :

In the video he says:

“I think putting in place a UBI is suicidal If we deal with the replacement of traditional jobs by IA by putting aside people who cannot work hand-in-hand with AI and giving them “food and distraction”, in 50y we’ll have a society like Metropolis and in 100y like the Matrix. We have to fight day in day out to reform education and industries to make sure workers stay relevant and complementary with AI”
