@neauoire Oh, before I forget again: are you still taking questions for the FAQ? And if so, is there a specific place to post them?
@neauoire I don't think any of them are!
It should go without saying and I don't think I'm overstepping any boundaries with my questions, but still: there's no obligation to answer, may the questions be too specific, in any shape uncomfortable or simply require too much time. I appreciate any insights you're willing to give.
@neauoire You share a lot of your knowledge, work and life with a public audience. Where and how do you draw the line between what is published and what stays private?
@neauoire Do you also create tools to support you in more private matters (e.g. family, physical & mental health, personal photo albums, etc.)?
@neauoire What does your infrastructure for handling data backups look like?
@neauoire How do you feel about GitHub as the host of all your project repositories?
@neauoire And finally, and most importantly: What coffee grinder do you use? :)
@rostiger GSI outdoor coffee grinder
@rostiger I'll answer the other ones tonight and update the faqs page with answers tomorrow :)
@neauoire Ah, this is great, thanks!
@rostiger it's a no for this one, maybe I should. But I don't really have much to say about this. I only create tools to affect creative output/input.
