I use my site as a method of blogging about my learnings, as well as sharing information about projects I have previously, or are currently, working on in my spare time.
I'm a GNU/Linux user, a big advocate for the Free Software Movement, and the IndieWeb movement and I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or using any of the other social links below.
I've definitely been channeling this energy today 😅

I think the general rule of thumb is "try not to support anything other than the latest version in Production and the latest development version, and even then reduce the time that there are two versions as much as possible" but with things like user-managed software, or where your path to production is slower, it can be difficult to say that.
