I really miss the days of chits or simple plastic pieces in board games. Why? Nostalgia? No. It's because I SERIOUSLY CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY $150+ FOR EVERY SINGLE BOARD GAME I WANT TO PLAY. Come on, having a deluxe version is a real option, as is having an "upgrade kit", but even cardboard standees would be better than adding >$100 to the price of every game so you can include photorealistic miniatures.

FOSS is and has always been about choice.

Don't like the software as it is? Fork it. Make it better.

Want to adapt the software to some other purpose? Feel free.

But what's great about FOSS is when projects have the ability and empathy to listen to their users and work with them. We're at our best when caring users and empathetic developers converge to make something great.

I don't want FOSS to be the best because it's FOSS; I want FOSS to be the best because it's considerably better.

I am having the hardest time getting a running as my printer server. I mean, I have CUPS up and running and ever thing says it should be working but nothing prints. Previous Brother MFC worked fine this little B&W laser, not so much. 😕
