What I Wish I'd Known About Equity Before Joining A Unicorn

Disclaimer: This piece is written anonymously. The names of a few particular companies are mentioned, but as common examples only.

This is a short write-up on things that I wish I'd known and considered before joining a private company (aka startup, aka unicorn in some cases).

A set of instructions on how to fix the harfbuzz + Infinality issue and restoring good-looking, Infinality-like font rendering.
View fix-infinality.md

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide being aware of the fact that I'm not an expert regarding the things outlined below, however I made my best attempt. A few people in IRC confirmed it worked for them and the results looked acceptable.

Attention: After following all the steps run gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache as root, this prevents various gdk-related bugs that have been reported in the last few hours. Symptoms are varied, and for Cinnamon the DE fails to start entirely while for XFCE the icon theme seemingly can't be changed anymore etc.

Check the gist's comments for any further tips and instructions, especially if you are running into problems!

'rebaser' improves on 'git rebase -i' by adding information per commit regarding which files it touched.

Prebase

git-prebase improves on 'git rebase -i' by adding information per commit regarding which files it touched.

  • Each file gets an alpha-numeric identifier at a particular column, a list of which appears below the commit list. (The identifiers wrap around after the 62nd file)
  • Commits can be moved up and down safely (without conflicts) as long as their columns don't clash (they did not touch the same file).

Installation

Add the executable to your path and git will automatically expose it as

# Hello, and welcome to makefile basics.

# You will learn why `make` is so great, and why, despite its "weird" syntax,
# it is actually a highly expressive, efficient, and powerful way to build
# programs.

# Once you're done here, go to
