On a scale from WTFPL to GPL, what is a good license from your point of view?

Two others and I could already cover a third of that, so given the number of people interested in this, we can probably reach that mark, or something below with some negotiation.

The thing about moving to something different is that it needs to be seamless to keep the community intact. That means auto-importing years of history preemptively from a source that tends to be down from time to time. That's an extra challenge, especially since it needs to be updated continuously until the final switch happens.

Operational costs of Soup can, by the way, be most likely cut in half with some engineering and using more efficient content delivery. There is, however, the looming threat of EU-prescribed upload filters. Depending on how Soup is organized in the future, they might not be a problem, though, because small organizations and non-profits are exempt from this requirement.

I've been in touch with the owner for some time, and they are hoping to recover their investment since taking over, which is in the 30k range.

Needs more context. Also, which hardware are you posting this from, then?

Anyway, time to liquidate all assets and go into the mountains to live off the land and wait for this whole civilization thing to blow over.

Why is the Macarena playing in the background, and why is there a green swastika? So many questions.

Fun fact: While anyone can make flip flops, the universally known term "flip flop" (in the context of footwear) is trademarked.

This causes a major headache for anyone who wants to sell them, because customers need to be able to look up the product using the trademarked term, without stores showing the phrase in any search results or description pages, and still being able to translate it to various synonyms of this simple thing.

Fuck flip flops. They are just some flimsy shit that starts breaking within months anyway. And fuck the ones who trademarked the term even harder.

Just use high quality sandals instead. Much more comfortable, can handle a moderate degree of activity, and they don't flip sand below your foot like it's their main purpose - as opposed to flip flops. If that doesn't convince you, they stay comfy for years with the proper care. Flip flops? Garbage after a few weeks, and there is no care that could extend their lifetime. Just more plastic for the turtles to choke on in the pacific.

I really dislike flip flops.

@zelbekon Thank you for making Soup history with your video dump. Songs will be sung about it.

Article 20 of the GDPR grants you the right to download all your personal data from a site. The stuff you put on MAL clearly is personal data, as it outlines your preferences and can be used to create an interest profile of you.

Contact them by mail or something to demand your data. They have some time, I think up to a few months, to comply and send it to you.

If they fail to do so, it's time to deploy some tactical nuclear lawyers and sue the shit out of them. Watching this happen would give me a serious privacy boner.

There is also another, less fancy marker between the platforms of the Yamanote line.

Fun fact: There is a project for managing SSH keys across a large number of servers called SSH permit A38, obviously based on Asterix.

That movie is the spark that ignites the fuse that lights the fire that detonates the bomb that rattles the shelf on which canon is standing and The Last Jedi will fall off.

The show seems really boring, but I'd still watch some of it just for the sake of out-of-place Star Trek references. That shit gets me going.

Maybe they had to get another job to have enough income to support their lifestyle.

That's not even an orc. It's an Uruk-hai. You can tell by how tall it is, the armor, and by the fact that the entire attacking force in the movie was comprised of Uruk-hai. That's differs from the books, where Uruk-hai were the majority, but were also supported by Orcs and Dunlanders totaling about two thirds of their number.

Here's the source: https://www.16personalities.com/

Interesting read. Of course, this is not a perfect way to classify personalities, but it's not all the way off either. At the same time it's either very entertaining or sad how accurate some descriptions of the personality you end up with are.

Pivotal Tracker. It lasts for a long time, until the product outgrows it. As long as the team is small and lean, you won't have any issues, though.

What I definitely NOT recommend:
* Trac: Does the job, but the UX is terrible. Over-configuration quite likely, especially for small teams.
* Redmine: Same as Trac, but in Ruby instead of Python.
* JIRA: Once you join the dark side, there's no going back.
* Virtually every TODO SaaS: It doesn't work out. Things go stale. You'd have to do a pretty awesome job at onboarding the team to get it working. It's just too vague. Some I've tried and failed with are Wunderlist, Trello and Basecamp.

* If your team is fully distributed, most of the tools I don't recommend might work, because they could be set up as the primary channel of communication. Once it has become the main way to communicate, it will work out, because all information is in one place, and the overhead of the tool can't be navigated around by means of personal communication.
* If the whole team is on site, just use damn post-it notes. It doesn't get any leaner. If you need a tool in addition to post-it notes, make sure to keep both in sync, or at least define the single source of truth.
* It's tempting for an engineer to create a really intricate workflow that covers all the bases. This will only tie you down in bureaucracy in reality. Spent as little time as possible on workflows, and let people improvise for edge cases. I presume you work with intelligent humans - they'll to the responsible thing.
* Define a single source of truth. The issue tracker should have precedence over coffee maker conversations, and coffee maker conversations that are actually relevant should be recorded in the issue tracker. If you look back at an issue in a year, you won't remember every decision you made in a conversation. Document the shit out of stuff.

Just some things I picked up over the years. Hope it helps.
