Your small tech org, user group, or open source community could, for just USD$200, get a code of conduct evaluation, a report, and a half-hour meeting about next steps. From/with an expert. This is AMAZING value for money, in my opinion. lifeofaudrey.com/2018/07/16/co

I recall people on here talking about headphones. I’m looking for a new set. I don’t wanna spend audiophile money, but they need to be quality enough to last several years (the current set still _works_ but the ear cushions are disintegrating).
