So I cast off my 2018 temperature blanket on Jan 1st and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I knit one garter stitch row every day for 365 days based on the daily high temp for my city. It was a very rewarding project. #knitting

What folks always fail to communicate about "self-host all the things!" is that self-hosting costs real money.

"Some people have more money than other people"

So rich people hoarding money is a problem?

"I didn't say that. There are systems that protect people with money"

This "public domain day" used to happen every year until 1998, when 20 years was added to copyright terms for no real reason other than that large companies like Disney wanted it.

Copyright currently lasts 95 years in most countries, but until the late 1970s it was 56 years, or even shorter if copyright wasn't actively renewed.
