20:48 on effective patches: linux
making trivial cleanups? are they useful or good?
small patches are important because people realize that they can change the kernel! on a practical level, they can tag a change on the kernel and say that they accomplished it
it's not possible to get into the kernel without starting out small and making mistakes
even trivial patches really do take time, as they often have trivial mistakes! they take a lot of time proportional to effort in the contribution, but it's so important for people to learn how to contribute to projects! don't stop making patches, even if those patches aren't the best. they're a good way to learn.

balance your infections being a restaurants regular is a beautiful thing
defines a 'regular'
what does it mean to frequent the restaurant? what does it mean ot enjoy it?
it is a gift to shut up and exist in a country that screams at everything
eating out is an excercise in acceptance; they are letting you into their home deserts are hardly equal restaurants are where life is lived if we sacrifice them, we sacrifice live as we know them; we sacrifice the humanity in a city
return to restaurants only in memory until the day i die
