Simple enough of an explanation. I like it.

X201 user here. Although I primarily use a T460s nowadays, I'm never getting rid
of that trusty old computer of mine. The X201 is approaching 10 years old this
year and it's still chugging along just fine outside 4K video playback (which is
overrated, anyway). The keyboard layout, its durability and netbook-like form
factor keep me clinging onto it.

That said, I've been saying that the tech industry has been in a state of decline
since around 2012. Laptops of today are atrocious; I miss having an intuitive,
functional MP3 player on the market, like the Sandisk Sansa Fuze; mainstream
operating systems have become far more user-hostile and privacy-invasive... I'm
concerned about the future of computer technology outside the world of FOSS.

Good call. We shouldn’t make exceptions for such a service.

Crypto as Option for Paid Subscriptions? 7 months ago

From Steven Peguero to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Hey Drew,

As of today, I just became a paid subscriber of Sourcehut! Thank you for providing this
simple service that does away with a distracting UX, JavaScript bloat and endless
dependencies. There is far too much of that shit on the Internet nowadays.

With that said, I was wondering if you intend to introduce crypto payments as an option
for paid subscriptions in the future. Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Monero would be good
first-starters. I understand that the site is in its alpha stage at the moment, but I wanted
to throw this idea out there, in hopes to see it manifest one day.

Thanks again, brother!

Steven
