We place capitalism in quarantine only to discover:
– The paramount importance of all maintenance work: transport, logistics, cleaning, health work, etc.
– The radical uselessness of financiers, consultants & vultures
– The absolute centrality of informal/family/support networks

I’ve been doing more server maintenance and system administration than coding lately (not as much of either as I’d like to though, to be honest) and I really enjoy it. All very basic stuff though, couldn’t pretend to know what it’s like when it gets large scale. I want to play with some infrastructure as code stuff though, think I’d like that.
I love maintenance. I don’t know why it has a bad reputation.
There’s a growing movement trying to get maintenance held again in the high esteem that it should be.
Unlockable bootloaders. This should not be a thing.
