*or optimizing my 24h each day.
I swear my blog post will have better grammar than my social media posts.
In other news, I have a personal blog post I'm planning on writing about "digital wellness". It's been something on my mind a lot recently and an aspect of my life I'm wanting to improve in 2019, whether it's to help me keep focused, productive, and optimizing my 24h each day.
I have some ideas on (open source) software I'm going to write to satisfy some of my own digital wellness and productivity needs. So stay tuned? 🤷♂️
So I decided to (re-)open my @flattr account as I start working more extensively on my own open source projects. If you use something I develop (doubtful, but I've heard crazier things) and want to buy me a beer every once in a while, check me out at https://flattr.com/@JoshStrobl
To be clear, this is a personal account for personal use to support development of personal open source software. It's not associated with any other individual(s), project(s), organization(s), etc.
If you're able to achieve a satisfying experience for your existing consumer / user base, those people will become your evangelists. They'll share about how amazing your work is. You'll be happier because they're happier and your consumer / user base will grow organically.
Sean mentions focusing on actions rather than words, community over press. That's something which resonates with me, as someone that spends a large amount of time communicating with the Solus community and very little with press.
At the end of the day, your focus should not always be expanding your consumer base, whether it's for your software, game, or hell even a coffee shop. It should primarily be on working towards providing a more satisfying experience for your existing consumer base.
A great talk by Sean Murray at Hello Games on game development. Largely applies to software development as well.
I remember when No Mans Sky launched being dumbfounded (in a bad way) by the state of the game but it's evolved into something truly fantastic.
Me: "What's taking up so much space? I know my media library isn't THAT large."
Nextcloud: "I heard you wanted 1TB worth of old file versions".
When I do an OS upgrade on my home server and everything is fine.

I have survived ~1.5m scovilles. Worst part of that experience was the almond milk, had to coat the wings with the scorpion stuff to feel anything. 8/10 maybe will try again.

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
