Making you happy is too high a bar for anything. It’s unfair to ask that of anyone or anything — it’s something you can really only ask yourself, or bring yourself.
But enjoying something? That’s possible! It’s very much within reach.
So I said, will you enjoy the car? Could you see yourself enjoying the car? Will you enjoy the drive?
And that’s a much easier question to answer. And an expectation that’s easier to accept.
Objects (and experiences) don’t make you anything, you have to enjoy them.
Enjoying something is plenty.
I think he’s going to buy one.

The Confusing World of HDMI — Pixel Envy:
The people who write the HDMI spec should get together with those behind USB-C so they can create a single port that nobody understands.

Please don’t use Discord for FOSS projects:
You are making an investment when you choose to use one service over another. When you choose Discord, you are legitimizing their platform and divesting from FOSS platforms. Even if you think they have a bigger reach and a bigger audience,2 choosing them is a short-term, individualist play which signals a lack of faith in and support for the long-term goals of the FOSS ecosystem as a whole. The FOSS ecosystem needs your investment. FOSS platforms generally don’t have access to venture capital or large marketing budgets, and are less willing to use dark patterns and predatory tactics to secure their market segment. They need your support to succeed, and you need theirs. Why should someone choose to use your FOSS project when you refused to choose theirs? Solidarity and mutual support is the key to success.
