If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.

I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

You can always have money taken away from you but you can never have experience taken away from you.

Looking for some feedback on a refactoring kata I made:

github.com/zombiecodekill/HotD

What makes a good refactoring kata?

Hello.

I am willing to pay cold, hard, FIAT cash to someone willing and able to port raw.githubusercontent.com/sive

to golang (that compiles/works on mips64 as a single, static binary -- if that matters. which it probably will)

how much? YOU TELL ME (and let me know why you're a great fit for this task). I am willing and able to pay a premium because this is something far more useful to me in two weeks than two months.

boosts very much appreciated.

It's great that Jimmy Wales is launching a non-advertising news-focused social media.

I can't help feeling a bit sad that he didn't look at ActivityPub first though. Even nonprofits suffer from the Not Invented Here syndrome?
