27.7 billion "megadeal" for Slack.
"Toss in net losses of $147.6 million during the two quarters ending July 31, 2020, Slack’s uninspiring public valuation and its winding path to profitability and it was a sitting target for a takeover like this one. The only surprise here is the price."
Yeah, pretty sure that the days of free accounts are at an end.
Time to get your community eggs in order.

Vacation, family things, camping
Back in the land of cell service, but still camping.
Wednesday thru Friday morning we were at ~7500 feet; really cold at night.
Yesterday through tomorrow morning we're back down at Ojai level (~1200 feet).
Thanksgiving was great even though the propane regulator is leaking. We're now out of it while still "dry camping". We'll be fine; we have a camp stove and a dutch oven (and a generator).
Vacation, family things
Took today off to pack up the trailer. We're going up into the mountains until Sunday. I hope no service.
Tomorrow is cornish hens in the little propane oven.
The boys are bringing Lightning and Pikachu (the guinea pigs). I hope the are ok with the bumpy ride in the trailer.
See y'all later!
Still rocking out to this remix that my buddy Eric Steuer did of the FreeConferenceCall.com's hold music.
(We used that service at Creative Comons way back in the day, circa 2009.)
Every job has _core work_ and it also has _care work_. Core work can be done safely without much consideration. Care work requires consideration to be performed safely.
Sometimes work we think of as core work others need to be done as care work.
When teams distribute care work in a way that preserves or generates trust, they cultivate psychological safety.

This is the death of the unbridled scientific hope we had when I was young.
This is the result of wanton abandonment of infrastructure.
This is not political.
This is lazy.
A person born with little knows to maintain things as long as you can.
When only the super wealthy have power, everything is an incidental expense.
I hate you for what you’ve done.
Making a circus so grand that dreams die within.
apple, user privacy, louis rossmann
I came across Louis a long time ago, probably like many others, he's gotten very ranty and probably has issues, but this rant is legit.
vision correction, success!, parenting/kids
They were on the bedside table b/c I took them off while playing "Daddy tiger, baby tiger" (aka: rolling around the bed pretending to hunt animals and mostly just cuddling) with Terran.
this is getting harder....
tech question - git hosting "frontends"
i wonder what the minimal setup is for sharing git repos from your own server. yes i know about gitlab, forgefed, etc, but is there anything at the simpler end of the space that's floss and easy to install? i'm interested to hear about things with basically any featureset, partially because i'm interested in thinking about what features are truly essential for what cases.
typical dad shit
My wife uses our thermostat (which only controls the heater) as though it were just an "on/off" switch. If she wants heat, she sets it to 80. If she doesn't, she sets it to 50.
I joked about it with her this morning and her response is "I just turn it off when I'm hot!"
You don't need to heat the house to "hot"!
/me mumbles something about heating costs and money growing on trees.
