Please make sure to support your instance admins.

And not only "hey pal great job!" kind of support (which is probably appreciated), but also "here's some $$$$!" kind of support.

The former is awesome but the latter pays the bills and the admins do great work here.

Just when you think silly season is over in the Linux world, someone commits a patch to the kernel trying to replace F bombs with the word "hug" πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
