Listening to bitcoin newbies asking their questions on CH, I get the impression that they think we never made mistakes along the way.

You basically have to make mistakes while you learn how to Bitcoin.

Embrace it and start the process. Learn by doing.

You don't have to go newcoiner zero to full bitcoiner hero all in one go.

e.g. if your coins are on exchange and you're scared about self custody, try a small amount on a phone wallet to get comfortable.

Bold stance:

If you're running a successful business that's built on top of open-source software and you're neither contributing code to these projects nor donating money to them, you're not only a freeloader, you're actually harmful to the entire movement.

You should take an interest in the sustainability of these projects as they ensure the likelihood of your own success and future.

Every bitcoiner should familiarize themselves with jq. Such a handy tool for so many situations. (considering the ubiquity of json)

@staciewaleyko I was able to migrate everything except previous toots (they're easy to download though). It's still early enough for that to not bother me, and I wouldn't want to spam everyone with those again anyway.
