Never, ever leave money in a paypal account, especially if you’re too small a vendor to make a big stink in the press about it when they lock you out. Always cash out to your bank *as soon as possible* if you use them as a payment processor. https://twitter.com/snubs/status/1366948401393328130

THIS. Most of my back pain stems from this exact problem; and the stretches in the article he links are the exact ones my physio has me doing. Your body may be different - but if you work at a desk all day, make sure you stay on top of this. Older you will thank you.
Hi. I was a clinical massage therapist for a decade and chronic upper back, shoulder, and neck tension was my speciality.
Here's a thread on why…
This is another line in the “why open source is hard” column. Approaches to revenue generation are often so novel that you spend your life wondering about tax compliance, rather than engineering. Exacerbated by the fact the platforms follow US tax laws, not necessarily others.

I love this discussion and the thing I want to mention is that all of this context only exists where the FLOSS work can be used for profit generation. There's lots of FLOSS out there that doesn't lend itself to that and they're even further in the cold on getting paid. https://twitter.com/freakboy3742/status/1365109828159299586
Unfortunately, I don't have a solution. But I *do* know that the current situation isn't healthy for maintainers or the ecosystem; & far too many companies extract *far* too much value from the system without any obligation to give back. Enforcing that obligation is the key. 4/4
